Why You Need Home Security System Instead of Security Guard

Going away from home is not always a good feeling. If you are going away for a longer period leaving your home all alone, it will keep you constantly worried about the security of your home.

Your home is the only place on earth where you feel peace, comfort, and security. But if someone breaks into your house and steal something out of your home then these feelings are badly hurt. Your brain starts rejecting the feeling of peace and security even within your own home.

Hiring a security guard might be an idea. But it is very costly in most of the European countries and the United States of America as well. One 1.3% Americans can afford to have a security guard at their homes. What other 98.7% American will do then to secure their homes? They can, ‘definitely,’ choose to have a home security system installed in their homes.

Though you have to incur some cost when you opt for this option for home security when you compare the cost of having a security guard and installing a home security, you find following option much reliable and the economic one. You will have to pay a nominal amount monthly to the company who installed the home security system at your home. This monthly fee is way lower than the idea of hiring a security guard.

Here are the advantages of owning a home security system rather than hiring security guard which we will discuss in coming paragraphs.

24 Hours Non-Stop Surveillance

If you hire a security guard, the duty time will be limited to 8 hours only so, what about 16 hours? Will the burglar ask you for the schedule before breaking into your house? You would have to hire at least 2 or 3 security guards to cover all the hours in a day.

The cost will be incredible! On the other hand, if you install some home security system then you will have 24 hours non-stop surveillance. Machines never get tired so there won’t be any chance of human failure.

Watch Where You Are

Another great feature of having a home security system installed at your home is that you will have the ability to watch your home from wherever you are. Most of the modern security system comes with the remote access feature through your smartphone.

You just install an app on your smartphone and watch your home even when you are hundreds and thousand miles away from your home. You will not have to worry about the security of your home because it will remain under your watch 24 hours a day. If you find anything disturbing, you can call your neighbors or the local authorities for the help.

Availability of Data

If something happens, the statement of an eyewitness can be misleading or misinterpreted because human memory fades with the passage of time. You cannot rely on human-based information. Even you can’t sketch the person based on the description of an eyewitness. But if you have a home security system installed, you will have all the videos saved, and you can access the video whenever you want. All the clarity and detail of video is at your disposal.

Even if you had the money to hire a security, it’s obvious that installing a home security system is the far better choice.
