Having a smart home security system has many benefits and advantages besides simply offering better security for your home. Here are six reasons to install a smart home system right away.

Quicker Emergency Service

In case of an emergency, a monitored home security system will dispatch emergency services to your home right away. This means that you don’t have to run around trying to find a phone – you don’t need to be at home at all! A monitored home security system means you can sleep with peace of mind, knowing that the police will arrive on time if an issue arises.

Detect Fires

A smart home security system doesn’t just keep out burglars. It will detect smoke right away and alert the fire department. It will also warn you when carbon monoxide is detected.

Protect the Less Frequented Areas

There are many areas of the home which you likely don’t frequent as often and which are susceptible to break-ins. This includes the garage, basement doors, backdoors, and so on. A home security system keeps these areas just as safe as the rest of the home.

Raises Your Home’s Value

Installing a smart home security system will raise your home’s value. This comes in handy if you ever want to sell or rent your home. In addition, installing a home security system can help you save around 10 percent on your homeowner’s insurance! The cost of installing a home security system pays itself back quickly.

Save Energy

A smart home system will help you save energy by being able to control the lights and temperature in your home at any time, from anywhere you want. You can also automate it to start and shut down at specific times.

Protect Your Pets

Always worried about leaving your pets alone? Stop frantically searching for a last-minute dog sitter when that unexpected meeting arrives. You can now protect and monitor your pets from anywhere, and even control the lighting and temperature to make them more comfortable.
