There are many benefits of Installing a Burglar Alarm System. It’s a concerning reality that your home or business is at risk of being burgled or broken into. Even if you live in an area that would be classified as safe, you probably have some minor concerns when you leave your property, especially for long periods of time. A burglar alarm system can give you some peace of mind as it will provide protection for your possessions and property. Below we have listed several reasons our customers choose to install a burglar alarm system and why it is beneficial for your home and your business.
Installing a burglar alarm provides enhanced protection for your possessions
An average home in Northern Ireland has a lot of valuable assets not to mention personal photos and gifts which could be stolen. There are many valuable possessions that we keep at home and at work such as phones, tablets, laptops, TV’s, games consoles, jewellery and designer clothes which could be sold for a lot of cash. Not to mention, if you have lovely car sitting outside your front door and there is no one home, a thief may break in, find your keys and drive off in it.
If you have a business then you will most likely hold valuable stock, specialised equipment and employee possessions. To add to all these valuable things, your premises may contain sensitive customer information or even company records and plans. A break-in, even if no private or sensitive information happens to be stolen, will most likely cause concerns among your clients and employees. This could result in you losing customers or even possibly workers.
Installing an intruder alarm will decrease your insurance premiums
Thieves are looking for the easiest and laziest way that they can get some cash. The more security you have in your home the less likely that anyone will break in because a thief won’t target a secure location. Even the sight of a burglar alarm or CCTV camera will be enough to make intruders move along. Recently we wrote about why burglars in Northern Ireland are deterred by our burglar alarm systems.
Burglars often seek out ‘easy targets’ and by adding a burglar alarm to your home or business security plan this step can help ensure that your property is less likely to be targeted by thieves.
The Benefits of Installing a Burglar Alarm System in your home or business is that it will lower the cost of your insurance premiums. The amount of money you save will depend on your insurance provider, but it is possible to save a substantial amount of money on your insurance.
Installing a burglar alarm will give your home a higher value on the market
If you consider selling your house, you obviously want as much money as you can possibly get for it. An easy and beneficial way to boost the value of your property is to have a burglar alarm system. As well as keeping your home a place where you can feel safe, an intruder alarm also contributes to a safer neighbourhood. This is a desirable quality for a house and will be evident in your asking price.
Installing an intruder alarm will make leaving your home for longer periods of time much easier
Everybody needs a holiday, a period of rest. Sometime just to sit back, kick your feet up and relax. It can be hard to relax while away from your home or business when you have concerns about how secure your valuables are. You can’t really fully relax if this is the case. On the other hand, if your home or workplace has an installed burglar alarm or CCTV system, you can sit back, enjoy your holiday and rest assured that your home is well protected and that everything will be as it was left when you return home.
Installing a burglar alarm (along with CCTV) gives you the capability of remotely monitoring your home
Our burglar alarm security systems can also be equipped with CCTV cameras so that you can check in when you are not present. You can view your property live, in HD 24/7 from your smart phone, tablet or PC. You can also check the status of your burglar alarm system and you will receive instant live alerts from both your burglar alarm system and CCTV system.
This technology would be particularly useful if you have teenagers and you might be concerned as to what mischievous things they will get up to, or you have pets and you are away for the day and you are concerned as to how they are getting on or behaving. Our advanced security systems even include remote arming, this is so you don’t need to worry whether you left the downstairs window or back door open and you can ensure everything is locked up nice and safe. You can also arm and disarm your alarm if you have someone checking in on your property on your behalf without the need to give anyone your alarm access code.
