The Best Security Systems for Your Home

Find a home security system for your family

Selecting a home security system is about the safety and welfare of both your family and your home.  There are more than two million burglaries every year in the United States averaging more than two thousand dollars in property loss per incident.  This isn’t taking into account the threat to personal safety or the incalculable mental costs. 

There are many security systems available, but the best security systems are those that provide a comprehensive security package of home monitoring with multiple redundancy back-ups, alarms, quality equipment, professional installation and a money-back guarantee.

Basic Elements

Home security checklist

The best security systems will all provide the same basic elements, so it is good to be familiar with these and understand what each of them should cover. 

Installation and Equipment.  What equipment does the security system come with for the basic cost and what is extra?  How many sensors are included?  What is the installation charge?  How are the security company’s technicians trained? 

Monitoring.  Does the security system include twenty-four hour live monitoring?  How many back-up systems are there and what are they?  Is there a professional supervisor on site at the monitoring facility at all times?  Who does the monitoring facility contact if an alarm is triggered?  Is the alarm connected only to the monitoring facility or is it also connected to local law enforcement as well? 

 Guarantee.  Is there a money-back guarantee?  Is there a warranty on the equipment and on the installation? 

Our Choices for Best Security Systems

Here are some of the best security systems we found.

ADT.  ADT is one of the most familiar names in home security.  ADT has several home security plans from which to choose, both landline and wireless. The plans can include fire detection or just intruder detection.  ADT likes to send a security systems technician to the home to evaluate the home’s security requirements and prepare a home security system recommendation.  There will typically be an installation charge and perhaps a need for additional equipment.  The monthly monitoring fee is usually standard for all packages.

Do Some Research

Research security systems

These are some of the best home security systems on the market today.  Each homeowner should research several security system companies and compare their home security systems before selecting one for their home. 

The homeowner should get a written description of each company's home security system which should describe what equipment is included, what the cost is for the equipment, the installation and the monitoring.  It should also describe the back-up system(s) for the monitoring and exactly what happens if the primary system fails. 

There should be a written guarantee for the equipment and the installation and what is covered and for how long.  Each of these written proposals should be similar so the homeowner is comparing similar systems.

Choosing from among the best security systems is not an easy choice, but it is certainly an important one and one that will help provide for the security and comfort of the homeowner's family.
