We all have budgets we want to stick to and things that we are saving for or wanting to purchase for ourselves. So, you may be wondering if a security alarm is really worth it or if you are just wasting your money. By weighing out your options, you’ll find that having a security system is beneficial while also being cost effective.
Having a security system is like having insurance. It is something that protects you from things that go wrong in life and will help you when something bad happens. According to safewise.com, “The average dollar loss per burglary increased from $2,120 in 2011 to $2,316 in 2015. Most home security systems don’t cost nearly this much, and they can prevent a burglary from occurring in the first place.” Not to mention, most home insurance companies give a discount for having a home security system.
Burglars often avoid houses with security systems as well, so just having one that is visible deters your house from being targeted. Cities are also known to have the highest crime rates in the country. This is even more true of large cities, such as Portland. Living in a big city where your chances of being burglarized is higher, makes the need for a security system even stronger.
