If you are living in NYC you know that crime rateskeep increasing, that means a lot in a city that already has a larger crime rate than the national average, last year NYCregistered an increase of nearly 8% compared to 2018.
One of the most common crimes is home invasion, we cannot blame the police department, a lot of the times just can’t be there to prevent an invasion.Like many other big cities, residential burglaries are quite common, statistics show that around 60% occur during daytime when houses are unoccupied.
But what can we do to keep our families or employees safe? One of the main solutions is to install a home security system, with a specialized company.
Before choosing your security system, think about what you need to protect. Sometimes an invasion is not the main issue. You can install home security for many other reasons.
Let’s say you have children, pets or old relatives at home, maybe you just want to keep an eye on them. Even if you have someone helping at home while you are at work.
The right equipment package depends on what you need to achieve with your system.
It is essential to keep your priorities in mind when you contact a specialized security company.
It can be frustrating to find a wide variety of equipment in the market.
Audio, Video security systems have recently adopted mobile phone technology with wifi systems to enhance user experience.
You may need a project since day one, keeping in mind not just your priorities as we mentioned but the size of your home or office.
To have your kids or pets monitored, a sensor or camera should be installed to cover all entrances and exits, you may also add additional equipment such as a voice communicator.
The costs for a home security installation can vary and be kind of confusing, at first sight, again this happens because you will find a lot of different companies, products, and services in the market. We strongly advise you to do research in order to find reliable companies that provide a solid service for years in the market.
Contact solid companies and ask for a quote, a professional will always try to explain which kind of services and equipment will suit your needs. It is always possible to find a home security system within your budget, safety is the real priority here.
Most of security systems require a monthly payment for monitoring and one-time payment for the equipment. Study the contract before signing onto any security system, most companies charge for cancellation after a trial period, some can also add extra fees for moving the equipment from the original place, study every offer.
We strongly advise against buying a piece of security equipment on the internet and installing it yourself, this may bring serious risks to your home.
A good company will provide not just the best installation and equipment available, but all the support you need to keep your home safe.
