Who Needs a Home Security System? You Do!

Peaceful Greenville, South Carolina is filled with beautiful scenery and an active artist community. Unfortunately, like other towns, there are those who want to disrupt the quiet serenity by taking things that aren’t theirs from homes people have worked hard to obtain.

According to an analysis in LexisNexis®, from January through August 2020 nearly 170 residential burglaries or attempted burglaries have been reported in Greenville. The highest number of these intrusions were on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

Although we may be at home more often these days due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as the saying goes, “this too shall pass.” Since your home is the single largest purchase most people will ever make, doesn’t it make sense to do whatever you can to protect that investment?

How are you protecting your home and your family?

A properly designed, installed, and monitored home security system can help secure your property from intruders while you’re away. Including fire and carbon monoxide monitoring also protects your family while you’re at home.

According to the independent review site, Safety.com, a Temple University study led by Dr. Simon Hakim, found that a single-family home protected by a burglar alarm is 60% less likely to suffer a home invasion.

Save Money

Did you know a thoughtfully designed and centrally monitored home security system can also lower your homeowner’s insurance premiums? According to Coverhound Insurance Solutions, you could save 15 to 20 percent off your homeowner’s insurance premiums if you have a comprehensive security system installed.

Insurance companies and smart device makers are partnering to offer package deals to install devices and/or premium discounts for usage of the devices. Well-known insurance companies include State Farm, Liberty Mutual, Farmers, Allstate, and Travelers, among others. Check with your insurance company to ensure you purchase the right products and get the best discounts available to you.
