Making improvements that add value to your home is a smart move for any homeowner, and installing a security system is one way to increase your home’s value. Not only does it keep your family and belongings secure, a security system also can bring many long-term benefits.

Insurance Discounts

Fully securing your home can increase the property value, and one way to benefit is through homeowners’ insurance discounts. The amount of the discount varies depending on the company, but some offer up to 20% off premiums just for having a security system. A security system helps protect against theft and burglary, but many systems also have built-in flood sensors, and carbon monoxide and smoke detectors, which can also help keep your home and your family safe.

Intrinsic Value

A home automation system can increase the intrinsic value of a home by making your everyday life more convenient. For example, being able to control a home’s systems, including adjusting the HVAC, locking doors and turning lights off and on, from anywhere boosts convenience and efficiency, which increases value. A safe neighborhood and home is also a top criteria for homebuyers, so adding a security system could be a selling point if you choose to sell your home. Potential buyers will feel at ease knowing that their family and valuables will be protected.

Peace of Mind

Peace of mind and security are priceless, whether you’re buying a new home, selling your home, or living in the same neighborhood for decades. Having a security system will help you keep what’s most precious to you safe and secure, and give you peace of mind while you’re at home or away from home.

A home security system offers a wealth of benefits, which can increase the value of your home. Feeling safe and secure at home improves quality of life and provides a sense of well-being, bringing more value to your life.
