What Style Of Home Security Is Right For You?

By nick halmond

You have decided a home security system is needed. To figure out what kind of system is right for you there are some things to consider. One of the major deciding factors for everyone is money. How much can you spend? The other major deciding factor is how far you want to go with security.

Some people decide on the security they need by how safe they feel. If you live in a high crime area or if your home has been threatened, you may opt for more in-depth security measures. You need to go as far as you can to ensure you feel safe.

The first level of security for any home is very simple and does not require much money. It only requires that you lock your doors and windows, especially when you leave the house. In order to make this method more secure, you can purchase security bars to put in the windows and patio doors. These will only cost you about seventeen dollars. You can always upgrade the locks on your doors. A good dead bolt will cost you about twenty dollars and is easy to install yourself. Lastly, make sure all your outside lighting works and is turned on at night.

Once all the above steps have been taken and you still feel the necessity for more security, you can invest in an alarm system. The alarm systems actually have two different categories, inside and outside.

Most people have the basic inside system which is installed on all doors and windows or points of entrance. Most indoor systems come with fire and carbon monoxide detection as well, which is also part of keeping your home safe. You can also add motion sensors to the indoor systems. These kinds of systems start at about eight hundred dollars and will cost you about forty dollars a month for monitoring fees.

To stop an intruder outside, you can use the outdoor security system. These are based on motion sensors and will turn on your outside lights, the idea to scare the intruder away. This can be installed solo beginning at two hundred dollars or you can add it to the cost of indoor system and get both.

Video surveillance and intercoms can also be installed. This can also be in addition to your other systems or stand alone. There are wireless and hardwired systems. Each system used a system of transmitters and receivers to send video feed to your TV or VCR. The system starts at three hundred dollars for stand alone or cost can be added to cost of other systems.

When dealing with home security, there are things you can do to help out your systems, like locking your doors and windows when you leave the house or go to sleep, and do not open the door unless you know who it is and to answer the door with a phone in your hands.
