Are you considering a home security system but unsure if it is right for you? Many home and business owners miss out on the safety benefits of security cameras and more because of myths. Don’t let this be you. Below, we debunk seven misconceptions about security systems.

1. Home Security Systems are Unaffordable

Although it is often believed that you have to have a lot of money, anyone can get a home security system. Starting at just $99, ProTec is the perfect choice for affordable security systems.

2. It’s Only For Burglary Protection

Besides providing security, our medical alert systems enable you to remotely monitor sick, disabled, or old loved ones. They come with a button to alert an emergency response from our response center. Small and discreet, these alarms are wearable on any part of their body.

 3. Home Security Systems are a Luxury

Installing a home security system is no longer a luxury but a necessity. It deters burglars and improves the safety of your family and home possessions. We provide 24-7 video monitoring, plus an alert system to notify you of break-ins immediately, carbon dioxide surges, and fires.

 4. The Installation Process is Overly Complicated

You don’t have to be a tech wizard to install and operate a home security system. Our customers love our security systems because of how easy and quick they install.

 5. All Security Cameras Function the Same

Movies create the impression that security cameras work the same, but they don’t. Security systems differ in image quality, vision, remote access, power, and connectivity. If you’re looking for a wide pool of options, choose ProTec. We provide internal and external cameras, all fitted to suit home or commercial needs.

 6. A Security System Attracts Burglars

This misconception stems from the idea that only wealthy people have security cameras. However, burglars who spot a home security camera often change their plans.

 7. Burglars Can Easily Hack a Home Security System

Usually, connecting your home security system to the internet makes it easier to hack. CCTV cameras, on the other hand, are not hackable. Our IP cameras are very secure and reliable. We help you set up a secure password, two-factor authentication, and password manager.
