With home automation and home security systems with plenty of bells and whistles on the rise, it can be hard to determine if you need all of those fancy gadgets — after all, you’ve made it this far without them. But just because you have yet to be robed up to this point in your life does not mean that won’t suddenly change. If you’re still not convinced about ensuring your family’s safety, we’ve collected the top three reasons to invest in the uber-cool home security systems available through Emerald Coast Alarms.

Number One: Protect What Matters

While you could include that sweet, sweet 63 inch flat screen on this list, we’re mostly talking about your family. The chief reason to get a security system is, of course, to protect what matters: your loved ones. “Securing Home and Business” stated that homes which do not have security systems installed are 2.7 times more likely than homes with systems to be targeted by burglars. Thus, the mere incorporation of a home security system into your home discourages home break-ins. Additionally, burglars will attempt to catch you unawares, but sometimes that doesn’t happen. If a burglar enters your home when someone is there, it can be a panic-inducing occurrence for you, but also for them and thus, it’s likely to prompt aggression on their part. In this case, having a security system in place will be the difference between a minor burgling issue and a serious safety issue.

Number Two: Peace of Mind

One of the many reasons to invest in a home security system is, of course, peace of mind.  The presence of a reliable home security system within your reach all the time helps you feel safe and secure in your home, which is your right as a human being. This is especially valuable for folks that are elderly and wouldn’t necessarily be able to face a burglar head-on because of deteriorated health.  With a security system there to protect them, there’s nothing that they’ll have to worry about.

Number Three: Safeguard Your Valuables

That string of pearls from your mother that your wife wears on anniversaries and, once again, that TV that has changed your thematic experiences when watching your favorite show are all material objects, but they’re objects with meaning. You’ve held onto them this long because they hold the value that they did when you first got them, and that generally means you want to keep them. A home security system makes sure that the things that are yours remain yours. Protecting that heirloom jewelry and your son’s game station may seem like a lesser reason to invest in a home security system installation, but it’s important to you and your family. There’s no reason to feel unsafe or as if your things might spontaneously no longer be yours.
