How Much Should You Pay For a Home Security System
Congratulations! You’ve made the decision to purchase a home security system, which is an important investment in the safety of your home and family.
How much should you pay for a home security system? When determining the cost of a home security system, it is important to first assess your actual security needs:
- What parts of your home are you trying to protect?
- What is the crime rate in your area?
- What are the common types of home related crimes in your neighborhood?
Once you determine your home security needs, you can then begin educating yourself on the various systems, companies, and associated pricing.
The cost of a professionally installed monitored security system can be thousands of dollars, plus monthly monitoring fees, which start around $40.00 per month, while a self-installed system can cost as little as $100.00 or less. A home security system is a very important investment for the safety of you and your family, so it is important to shop wisely and research each company and its services carefully. In order to get the best system and service for your money, select only those companies with the highest equipment and customer satisfaction ratings from industry experts, customer comments, and independent studies. While a self-installed system may be a less expensive option, it may not be sufficient to meet your home security needs as there is no monitoring, no connection to law enforcement, and no maintenance to the system. A fully monitored, professionally installed system may, therefore, be the most practical long term solution for your home security needs.
At Maximum, we are currently offering a free GE home security system, valued at $1,500.00, along with the purchase of monitoring services from a #1 rated monitoring company, Monitronics, who also received an outstanding customer service award in 2011.
No matter which option you choose, be it a simple self-installed system or a complete, professionally installed home security package, home security systems are an important step in securing the safety of your property and loved ones.
