"Should I get a home security system?" We hear that question a lot. The truth is, a home security system can go a long way to your peace-of-mind. It deters burglars, let's you keep tabs on your home while you're away, and even increases the value of your house.
According to the Alarms System Report, a burglary occurs in the United States every 13 seconds. Don't be part of that statistics; find a home security system that works for you and we'll handle the details. At the end of the day, it feels good knowing that your home is protected. When it comes to home security, peace-of-mind is priceless. We've got enough options so you can find the best balance between price and performance in your region.
We can't tell you that you need a home security system. However, we'll make it easy for you to browse companies and systems to decide for yourself. When it's this easy to choose, it doesn't hurt to take a look.
We make it easy to compare installation costs, monthly fees, equipment coverage, and every other factor that goes into choosing the right home security system for your household. With that said, we make it easy to only see the details that matter to you. Don’t let choosing a home security system feel so daunting that you avoid the topic entirely. Check out these details and decide what’s most important to you.
Home security systems have a “base cost” or the cost of installation and activation.
A home security system is connected to a cloud-based service that keeps your home connected to the monitoring tools that will keep you safe and secure. This service is billed monthly.
Some security companies have contracts at various lengths. Ensure the contract length you sign up for is right for you.
In some cases, the cost of installation can be waived if the homeowner installs the systems themselves. For some of us, we'd rather have a professional come in. If you're a DIYer, then make sure you choose a plan that gives you the freedom to do a self-install.
You want a home security system that will last you. Look for a provider with a solid warranty that protects you from any inadvertent breakdowns of your service or equipment.
Do you have a smart home? Choose a home security system that seamlessly integrates with your connected smart home to give you fine-tuned control of your security from anywhere in the world. These are just a few of the considerations to make when choosing a home security system. With us, you can easily see who does and who doesn’t support the features that are most important to you.
Are you handy around the house? Then a DIY-installed home security system might be the solution you're looking for. Not all of us need professional installation. With that said, you should pick a home security provider that gives you the freedom to install your system on your terms, whether that means calling in a pro or doing it all yourself.
Neither a pro-installed system nor a DIY system is better than the other. It all boils down to your ability to set up the equipment yourself. A DIY system typically means no installation fee, which saves you money upfront.
We suggest you choose a level of service you’re comfortable with. From there, compare providers that offer that service. Look at installation costs (and whether they’re waived for a DIY install) but also consider monthly fees, warranty length, and the quality and amount of security features you receive with the package. With MyUtilities it’s easy to quickly see what works for you and what doesn’t. We don’t want you to just save money, we want you to find an alarm system that you love.
