Common Home Security Myths
You work hard to keep your family safe. You may be wondering why some homeowners don’t take the extra step to protect theirA?possessions and more importantly, themselves and their families, with a monitored home security system. LivSecure is a home monitoring system that strives to make home security as affordable and convenient as possible for you. We have debunked the most common home security myths so you can make an educated decision when it comes to home security. Here are some claimsA?to watch out for:
Myth 1:A?Wired systems make it easy for burglars to cut the power
This may be true for older systems, but many systems these days are wireless, including LivSecure’s systems.A?We use multiple layers of protection to keep you safe, including wireless z-wave technology, and long-lasting battery backup. Your home security system will always get up-to-the-minute software updates automatically to ensure your security. Most importantly, our Central Station will monitor your home 24/7 and send help at the first sign of trouble.
Myth 2: It’s too expensive
ThisA?is one of the most common home security myths. You can’t put a price on safety, but we understand that cost is a concern. LivSecure monitoring plans start at just $34.99 per month and include a plethora of equipment and services, including 24/7 intrusionA?and fire monitoring, a smoke/CO detector, door and window sensors and more. Our easy DIY installation means you don’t have to pay a professional to install your system and put unsightly holes in your walls. If you’re a renter, our systems are particularly economical, as you can take the system with you when you move.
Myth 3: My neighborhood is safe; a burglary won’t happen to me
A safe neighborhood is only safe until something happens. Consider the fact that a burglary is committed every 13 seconds in the United States, but only 17% of homes have security systems. If a potential burglar does not see an outdoor camera, motion detector, or yard sign with the name of your security company, they may rightly assume you are not protected.A?Homes without security systems are up to 300% more likely to be broken into. Don’t become another statistic – it’s easy and inexpensive to protect your home and get peace of mind for your family.
Myth 4:A?Only a professional can install aA?system
You may have heard that setting up aA?home security system is a complicated process. This is not true with LivSecure. Installation is DIY and most of our customers say they set their system up in one hour or less. LivSecure will send you the equipment you need to install your home security system and specific instructions on how to do it (see our EZ Set Up Guide). If you do get stuck, our Home Security Specialists are available 7 days a week to assist you over the phone.
Myth 5:A?Home security systems are complicated
Home security is not as complicated as it seems. It’s not necessary for a technician to come to your home to install it or to teach you how to use it. Your home system and home automation features are tailored to your specifications.A?The LivSecure Total Control Home app gives you full access to smart home functionality from wherever you are.
