Do I Need A Home Security System? 5 Reasons You (Really) Do.
Do I really need a home security system? The benefits of professional monitoring, decoded.
Imagine you’ve just moved into your new home and are ready to tackle your to-do list. Unpacked the first few boxes? Check. Set up your TV and sound system? Check and check. What about a new home security system? That should be at the top of your list — and you’ve come to the right place.
With modern advancements in connectivity and innovative technology, installing a reliable home security setup has become increasingly popular — and necessary. While residential burglaries fell by 3.8% in the first half of 2023 compared to the first half of 2022, a security system is always a good idea. On average, over one million home burglaries happen annually in the United States.
Security system providers such as Arlo offer many handy features and subscription plans at little to no extra cost. Let’s explore the top 5 reasons why you should protect your home with a new Home Security System today.
You may be asking yourself the key question: Do I really need a home security system? The short answer is simple: yes. When surveyed, 81% of respondents aged 18-49 years old in the United States stated they owned smart devices for building safety and security as of June 2023.
Home security systems are worth every penny for the peace of mind they offer. Many American homeowners rely on home security systems, and the home security industry is projected to grow by 34% by 2026 in North America.
One of the best reasons to set up a system like the Arlo Home Security System in and around your property is to protect it from would-be criminals and other uninvited guests. Arlo offers indoor & outdoor high-resolution cameras so you can monitor your entire property — including all windows and doors.
Let’s explore the benefits of a home security system and how to find the best option for you.
The best home security system isn’t just built to protect your home & prevent crime. Leading home security companies like Arlo offer convenient, advanced features such as motion detection and night vision. Plus, options like the Arlo Essential Spotlight Wireless Security Camera or the Arlo Essential Indoor Wired Security Camera immediately alert you via tablet or smart device of any suspicious movement.
When evaluating your options, keep an eye out for key features like motion sensors, glass break sensors, smoke alarm detectors, and more. Reliable options like the Arlo Home Security System are quick and easy to set up, and come with a Keypad Hub and All-in-One Sensors.
The All-in-One Sensors are very easy to install and can be placed anywhere in your home. Each one has eight different detection functions. You can enable one or more detection functions per sensor to protect all parts of your home. To detect motion of an open or closed entry point, place the door and window sensors throughout your home. To detect leaks, tilt, temperature, ambient light, or excess smoke, place sensors near a water heater or pipes, in a room to detect motion or light changes, or near smoke or CO alarms.
Comprehensive security systems including the Arlo Home Security System don’t just catch crime in the act. They can effortlessly reduce the risk of sudden and unexpected crime in your area. The simple presence of Arlo Security Cameras — and our signature “Protected By Arlo” yard sign — around your property can deter criminals who know they are being monitored. Be sure to place your cameras at an angle in clearly visible or semi-visible locations.
Plus, with the Arlo Home Security System, you get 24/7 Live Security Experts that monitor your home, so you don’t have to, One Tap Emergency Response, and control over your entire system with one intuitive app.
Who wouldn’t want to take instant action to protect their home? Since the Arlo Essential Indoor Wired Security Camera and corresponding Arlo Security Cameras can instantaneously send alerts to your handheld smart devices, you’ll be able to receive important updates and notifications even when you’re away from home and get help, fast. Plus, alerts can help you keep tabs on what’s happening at home with pets, kids, and even leaks.
Your Arlo Essential Indoor Camera comes with an Automated Privacy Shield to give you an extra level of privacy. The Privacy Shield automatically covers the camera lens when the camera is disarmed, and opens when the camera is armed.
An investment in home security can benefit you — and your budget. When you install a security system and cameras in your home, you can actually end up saving money on home insurance premiums. The majority of insurance companies offer special discounts for homeowners who possess a security system since they’re seen as less of a risk to insure.
Home security systems can also help save you money on home repairs and replacements after an unfortunate break in by catching and saving video evidence for legal use when filing a claim. Renting? No problem. Wireless options within Arlo’s Home Security System let you protect your space. Securing your apartment or rented home has its benefits, too.
The simple peace of mind that comes with Arlo by your side is priceless. After choosing the best security system for your needs, you can kick back in the backyard knowing your family is protected 24/7. Arlo offers plenty of product options to fit any budget.
If you still find yourself worrying about your loved ones, you can always double check on the house with a single tap. Simply open the Arlo Secure App on your smart device to watch a live feed through your security cameras. Remember: A security system is only as strong as its placement. Pick the right spot to protect your property.
