The Different Types of Security Systems on the Market TodayIn today’s market, there is a wide range of choices when it comes to security systems, which can make it hard to decide which one is right for your home. Wired or wireless? Motion sensor, laser wire or constant feed? Install it yourself or get professional help? Monitor the video yourself or hire a 24/7 monitoring service? The truth is there is no “best” security system for all situations, and each individual choice will have unique pros & cons. The most important choice is making sure that whatever security system you decide to go with, it offers complete protection for your home and family.

The first thing to factor in is home invasion/burglar protection. Your security system should include monitoring of all primary entrances to your home (front door, garage, back door). It is also usually a good idea to upgrade your door locks to something more secure than the standard locking mechanism that you current have.

The next thing you will want to factor in with your security system is possible danger areas inside your home through the addition of internal video surveillance at some of your house’s hotspots (kids’ play room, basement stairs, pool area, etc.). Being able to keep an eye on all the potentially dangerous areas of your home can really give you peace of mind when it comes to the safety of your family.

After that, you will want to factor in your family’s everyday safety by adding fire & carbon monoxide alarms throughout the house. These alarms should be placed in specific areas of your house, including the front door, the back door, inside each bedroom, in the upstairs hallway, near the kitchen, & finally in the basement, usually near the hot water heater. Having these alarms positioned correctly throughout the house will ensure that you are alerted of an issue as soon as possible, and have a clear evacuation path to safety.
