If you think installing a home security system can be costly, consider that not installing one could cost you even more, and not just financially. Like many people, you may be thinking about improving your home security system, but you may also be questioning if it’s a sound investment. WonderBars won’t scare you with the facts of how frequently home burglaries occur but we will share with you the reasons why it’s an investment worth every cent.
A home without a system of security measures is three times more likely to be broken into than a home with a security system, including physical and infrared barriers. This indicates that the mere presence of burglar bars, security gates and other security technology – in most cases – is enough to protect the home and its occupants from break-ins. Security systems can not only be physical barriers such as burglar bars and trellis fixtures, but can be infrared and intangible as well, such as beams.
The cost of home security features is minimal compared to the physical and psychological trauma that a burglary can cause. The presence of a home security system provides many families with peace of mind, knowing that their home is protected from a variety of devastating scenarios. No more sleepless nights, or jumping at every bump in the night. The psychological strain will be lessened, and your physical protection will be bolstered, particularly with an armed response service watching over your burglar-guarded home.
Burglar bars not only reduces the chance your home will be burglarised, but can also minimise your loss should a break-in occur. Throughout our lifetimes we collect sentimental inheritances and purchases; these things represent who we are and our accomplishments. For most homeowners, the presence of burglar bars, trellis door and window fixtures, and perhaps an alarm system is enough to deter burglars but when it is not, it serves an additional function. As well as signaling authorities that the home has been burgled and increasing the chances that intruders will be caught, the additional barriers also make it harder for burglars to escape in the panic of a sounding alarm.
In fact, our trellis fixtures carry a slam-to-lock mechanism that is perfect for moments of crisis. Too many incidences take place when one is leaving or entering the home, therefore a slam-to-lock security gate can quickly separate you from an assailant.
Insurance is incredibly helpful in burglaries, but the average person already knows that insurance providers are less than generous. Take your safety back into your own hands with safes, burglar guards, security gates, alarm systems and more.
One of the biggest benefits of combining physical security measures with a electronic system is that it provides constant and complete protection from uninvited guests. Your physical barriers reduce the risk of opportunistic criminals – those thieves that perhaps see an open window from the street. Whilst burglar bars and trellis gates deter these fiends, combining your WonderBars solutions with an electronic system doubly secures your property in the event that your physical barriers are circumnavigated (anything can happen!) and your home is infiltrated.
Installing and using a home security system made up of various components may lower your homeowner’s insurance premium by up to 20 percent! Homeowners insurance is a mandatory part of becoming a homeowner in most circumstances, therefore a significant discount is highly favourable.
Having a secure home actually increases the value of your home when it comes to selling it later in life. As an added bonus, it also keeps your home protected throughout the selling process where a number of strangers will be inside your home.
Home security solutions allow homeowners to secure less frequented areas of the home, such as the shed and the garage which makes it more difficult for intruders to take their preferred methods of entry into the home and go unnoticed. Physical barriers such as trellis fixtures are particularly effective as security gates on front and back doors, and interleading doors between the garage and the home.
As you can see, complete home security solutions not only help protect your valuables, but are a smart investment in your family’s safety and security.
