Home Security Systems

Security services for the home can protect you and your family from burglary and fire. There are a number of options available, including separate fire alarm and intruder alarms, or a joint system.

Home Fire & Smoke Alarms

Smoke alarms will alert you to the presence of smoke while you’re inside your home. Fire protection is especially important because the majority of fires break out in the early hours of the morning, when you and your family are asleep. A smoke alarm will give you time to get out of your house. 

There are also smoke detection systems that can message you in the event of a fire in your home when you are out.

Home Burglar & Intruder Alarms

Security against burglary means you should have at least the basic security arrangements of window locks and double door locks. Households without even basic security measures are twice as likely to be burgled, than those who have basic security.

The average cost of a burglary is said to be around $2,113 for the items that are stolen, together with a further $750 for repairs to damaged windows or doors.

According to FBI statistics, most burglaries are carried out during the day and not under cover of darkness. In 2015 US Crime Stats reveal  over 7,993,631 burglaries, you can see why security is needed.

The most secure way to protect your home is by installing an intruder alarm system. House alarm companies supply a range of alarms, to suit most budgets. Alternatively, you can pay for a service from home security companies who provide a response service. This type of security system from home provides you with 24/7 protection.

CCTV Systems Features:

Another security device to consider is CCTV. CCTV Cameras can be installed around your home to record footage during the day and at night. Again, this is a service that can be provided by Jazz Security , or you can buy and install cameras yourself.

Home Security Benefits

When you re-new your home insurance policy, make sure you inform your insurers about any new security measures. Many insurance companies will give their customers’ discounts when a burglar alarm is installed.
