Advantages of installing Lightsys Intruder Alarm

Here are five great reasons to install an Intruder alarm system in your home or place of work.

  1. Protect what you love and value

The average home has a lot of valuable items inside. These days there is plenty of stuff worth taking, including mobile phones, televisions, games consoles, stereos, cinema-systems, jewellery and expensive clothes.

On top of this, car thieves often break into people’s homes in order to steal their keys and then take their vehicle. Businesses can hold valuable stock, lots of specialised equipment, and employee possessions. On top of this, your premises could contain sensitive customer information. A break-in, even if no personal data is taken, may cause concerns among your clients. 

2. Cheaper insurance The more protected your items, the less likely they are to be stolen. Thieves are looking for the easiest time – they aren’t going to bother with a well-protected home or business premises. Just the sight of burglar alarms can be enough to deter an otherwise interested intruder.

This means that installing an intruder alarm system in your property can lower your insurance premiums. Your saving will depend upon your particular provider, but you could see a significant reduction in the cost of your premiums.  

  1. Higher home value when selling

Intruder alarms keep your home safe, and contribute to a safer neighbourhood. These are both desirable qualities for a house, which is reflected in the price you can ask for it. If you are thinking about selling you home, or are simply open to the possibility in the future, a security alarm system is a good way to boost the value of your property.

  1. Leave your property for long periods without worrying

Most people go on holiday to get away from their home or work life. There’s no point ‘leaving’ your mind at home or in the workplace and spending the whole time you are away worrying about what might happen.

An intruder alarm system keeps everything covered, deterring thieves even in your absence. That way, you can relax and enjoy your holiday, safe in the knowledge your building and valuables will be exactly as you left them.

  1. Remotely monitor your home

More advanced systems come equipped with cameras so that you can check what’s happening in your home.

This is particularly useful if you are worried about what your teenagers might get up to when they are away, or have pets you want to keep tabs on. Some security systems include remote locking, so you can ensure that windows and doors are always locked.
