Monitored home security is more affordable than most people believe – typically priced less per day than your morning coffee. And if you’ve ever had your home broken into, you know just how valuable peace of mind can be.
Home alarm monitoring fees typically range from $20-$60 depending on where you live and which security company you choose. Some companies also charge upfront equipment and installation fees that could add up to hundreds of dollars.
At Crime Prevention Security Systems, our monitoring packages start as low as $22 per month for homes that already have a system installed. Our most popular package is $35.95 per month and includes monitoring service and all the equipment (control panel, door and window sensors, motion detector, etc.) for complete home security.
Home alarms are proven to deter criminals and shorten the time-in-the-home of burglars brazen enough to risk an alarm system. In fact, national crime statistics show that a burglary occurs every 15 seconds in the U.S., and homes without security systems are three times more likely to be targeted. The FBI reports an average burglary results in thousands of dollars in property damage or loss. It can also causes inestimable emotional stress to your family and may often necessitate time taken off work, legal fees and more.
Most homeowners would agree that limiting the risk of that kind of financial and emotional impact is well worth a few dollars per month. You can even recoup some of your home security bill through savings in your homeowners insurance.
Just like buying a new car with the latest safety equipment, insurance companies reward homeowners who take steps to secure their property. While we may think just includes a home alarm and a few sensors, insurers often extend deeper discounts for additional equipment. Installing a complete home security system with automation technology and preventative sensors like appliance heat monitors can result in up to a 20% reduction in homeowner’s insurance premiums.
At the end of the day, a home security system is insurance against the unpredictable and unthinkable. The best way to deal with the damages of a burglary or fire is to prevent it from happening in the first place. A monitored home security system is more than just a few sensors – it’s an investment in peace of mind, backed by the latest communications technology and Crime Prevention’s 5 Diamond certified, 24/7 hour monitoring service, ensuring a response when you need it most.
