Your home is your largest investment, and it’s natural that you would want to feel safe there.

Installing a home security system can be a great way to protect your property and your family — and there are a number of tools you can use to create a safer environment.

So, what are some common elements of home security?

1. Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors: These detectors let you know if there is a fire or a dangerous gas leak in your home. It’s important to install them on each floor of your home, in hallways and in every bedroom. Remember to test the batteries at least once a year to ensure the detectors are in working order.

2. Cameras: Indoor and outdoor cameras are a common component of home security systems. Not sure which types of cameras to use or where to place them? You can choose from wired, wireless and smart cameras. They can be placed at access points like your front door and in high-traffic areas inside your home.

3. Motion Detectors: You could place motion detectors inside and outside the home, where they can trigger an alarm if they sense activity. Smart motion sensors will send you a notification when activated, so you can assess the potential danger.

4. Smart Locks: Locking up your home is common wisdom, but you can enhance your home security with smart locks that open via keypad, mobile phone or biometrics. And if you forget to lock up when you leave, you can do it from anywhere with a few taps on your phone.

In addition to keeping you and your property safe, a home security system could also reduce your insurance premiums. Get in touch to learn more.
