Home Security 24/7

Home Security 24/7

Some Security Personnel

There are a lot of people that have to have 24/7 security, not only at home but wherever they go. For instance the movie stars, a lot of people in politics, now a days some of the media, even some higher up people that have a lot of money because they own large business’ or are the CEO of exclusive companies. They would need protection for their families also. A lot of ex-cops take on the jobs of chauffeur and body guards for these people.

Where Can You Buy A Home Security Setup?

When you are going to buy a home security setup, there are different things to consider. If you are a regular homeowner, it would be completely different from if you were a millionaire. Millionaires can just call on a company to install cameras outside their homes and have paid people to keep them safe. While the normal homeowner wants the best quality for his or her money. Whether it is a wireless system or a wired system by a company, it would have to be able to keep the family and property safe.

So where can you buy a home security setup? There are many places to go. Most of the time it could be cheaper when you buy online. You get your equipment on time and if there is a problem usually it is returnable without a charge. I would suggest pricing it out in the stores and then come back online and see the prices we have here.

How Much Does A Security System Cost?

This all depends on what kind of system you are looking for and how much your budget will allow you to spend.  There are many companies that would wire your house with all kinds of cameras inside and out.  This would cost anywhere between $0 and $100 dollars, but then there is a monitoring system that costs a monthly fee. This fee varies, depending on the company you choose to do the installation. Examples of these companies are ADT, VIVINT, FRONTPOINT and PROTECT AMERICA.

You also have wireless systems that can be installed by yourself with a couple of screws for each camera.  The cost for these range from $30 per camera to approximately $800 for 4 cameras and a 6 TB DVR. Examples of these companies are NETGEAR (ARLO), LOREX, SAMSUNG and NESTCAM. SimpliSafe will monitor your wireless systems for a monthly fee of about $15 a month. A lot of these systems can be armed and disarmed from your smart phone.

Will The Home Owners Insurance Decrease?

Unfortunately, Security Cameras themselves will not lower insurance costs. You would have to have a Central Station Alarm Company that is monitoring your house 24/7. If available through your carrier, the discount for central station alarms is generally from 10 to 15% of a homeowners insurance premium. If this is the situation you could increase your deductable from $500 to $1000 so the percentage of the discount is higher.

Tips For The Whole Family

Have a front door key on a glow stick upstairs or the highest point in the house so it could be thrown to the cops as they arrive. This way they do not have to try and break in the front door.

Install thorn bushes around the lower windows, so if someone trys to get in, they would maybe leave some skin around, DNA is a great way to identify people.

Have flashlights upstairs and down, you may have to turn the lights off.

Hang a bell on the inside of the doors. Front, rear and sliders. Just so you could hear if someone is trying to get into the house.

Designate a safe room, with the door opening out.  Have a phone, flashlight and firearm if you own one, in the room with you.

      1. Hi again Bill,
        I’m in Virginia. And you are so right about not having to spend a fortune! Of course, I think most things are that way if you have decent health and a little desire.
        By the way, I went to your google+ site to get to your page. You are quite a busy man. It’s a bit hard on us behind you with all that dust you’re stirring up. LOL
        Take care.
