Complete Guide to Home Safety
The biggest reason to invest and install a high-quality security system in Southern California is to deter crime in your home and keep your family safe.
According to the Electronic Security Association’s “Home Safety Fast Facts” report, 9 out of 10 burglars said that they would not attack the home if they encountered an alarm or home security system.
Homes without security systems are more likely to be the victim of burglary. Aside from security screens and doors, a security system is one of the best ways to ensure your property and the people you love are safe.
At Majestec, we get a lot of questions about home security products and systems. We like to help our clients as much as possible by discussing system options, costs, installation fees, and lifestyle to determine what works best for them.
Here are just a few of the most common questions asked.
Are home security systems effective?
While no security system is a 100 percent guarantee of safety, it is one of the best ways to protect your home and keep criminals from even trying to enter your property. With the addition of a security company sign on your lawn or sticker in your window, you can help deter potential burglars. We like to recommend every safety option available when it comes to home security, no matter if you live in an apartment, a gated community, or a nice suburban area. You can never be too safe.
Security issues may arise no matter the living situation, so it’s important to have a security system even if you have a doorman or are simply renting. Everyone has valuables, and installing a quality security system can be the most effective way to ensure that you and your possessions are protected.
How does a home security system work?
A security system works to safeguard any area of your home that can be an entry point. Today, home security systems are so advanced that you can watch and protect every entrance and exit way in your home even when you are not there. This is done through sensors that are installed in your home which then communicate with a control panel or command center.
Security sensors are installed on doors and windows at ground level. Motion sensors can also be installed inside the home in any open space, which is ideal if you travel a lot or work away from home. Motion sensors can tell you if there is movement in your home or on your property when no one should be there.
Are home security cameras worth it?
We believe that a security camera system can be one of the most effective ways to protect your home and act as a deterrent to burglars. With visible cameras on your property, burglars are less likely to attempt to break in. Security cameras are also an excellent recovery tool if your home does get robbed. It can provide you with evidence that you would otherwise not be able to acquire without video proof. Burglary and property damage can be handled relatively quickly if you can capture the act on camera.
Security cameras are now so technologically advanced that it can even identify moving objects, like cars used to escape. If you really want to invest in something high-tech, you can install ultra high definition video cameras that collect information in 4k. This technology allows you to zoom in to get details like license plates or get a close up look at faces that will help police identify criminals. Advanced security cameras can even get excellent clarity when it is dark outside.
Home security system cameras are set to start recording as soon as any part of the security system, such as a contact sensor, a glass-break sensor, or a motion sensor, is triggered. These types of sensors make it more likely that the cameras will record everything that’s happening on your property rather than just a few seconds of motion that occurred directly in front of them.
Where to install home security cameras?
Security cameras are installed in the most common entryways. Those entryways are the front and back doors and all first-floor windows. More often than not, burglars will attempt to enter the ground-level floor first, so it is critical to have security cameras in these areas.
Cameras should be installed above the door frame or window frame facing downwards so that all activity is viewed easily.
Another bonus to a front door security camera is seeing who is at your door. It’s always safest knowing to whom you are opening your front door. Just because someone knocks or rings a doorbell doesn’t mean that they aren’t there to rob you.
