2 Unexpected Benefits of Interactive Home Security

Home security keeps your home safer, and the more interactive and smart your system is, the more it can help you in your day-to-day life. But home security systems also have a few more benefits you can add to your pro/con list.

Talk to Your Home Insurance Provider About a Discount on Your Premium

House insurance has a lot of different factors in it, and all of those factors decide what your monthly premium will cost you. If you’re considering installing a home security system, especially one that monitors open doors, electrical outlets, and more, talk to your insurance company before you finalize all of your features. Depending on the relative safety of your neighborhood and what sort of risks are involved in your insurance valuation, it could save you a portion of the bill each month. After all, the safer your house is, the less likely you are to have to make a claim in the future.

The Integration Increases the Sellability of Your House

If you ever plan on selling the house, the infrastructure for a smart security system makes your house more in-demand. Potential buyers almost always pay a bit more for a home with features and renovations already completed, even if the additional cost is higher than the price tag of making the change themselves. Smart security systems also tell prospective buyers that you’ve taken good care of the home without implying the neighborhood isn’t safe.

While these extra benefits probably aren’t your primary reason to install interactive home security, they can help you pick final features and customizations, as well as tip the balance if you’re still on the fence. Contact Protec Security Systems to get started.
