Choosing the Right Home Security System for Your Family

With the uncertainty of today’s world, making sure your home is a safe, secure space for your family is more important than ever before. Your loved ones deserve a place where they can rest,  relax, and spend time building memories together without worrying about outside threats or the unknown. While we can’t predict what may happen in the outside world, protection with the right home security system can give you and your loved ones better peace of mind. 

If you are searching for home security solutions to keep your family and property safe and protected, here are the three primary things you need to look for.

1) Perimeter Protection

Most families looking for home security systems prioritize perimeter protection, and for obvious reasons: when the most important people in your life are under one roof, you want to make sure they’re safe from external threats. While no one ever thinks they’ll be a victim of burglary or violent crime, the reality is they happen all the time – and when you least expect it. 

A home burglary occurs every 15 seconds in the United States, contributing to 66 percent of the 2.5 million burglaries across the country each year. Of the 21.5 million people living in Florida, 1 in 258 will be a victim of violent crime this year alone – with many of those incidents happening in or near the home.

Home security systems decrease your odds of being a victim of burglary by 300 percent. With ADT perimeter protection through TruHome Alarms, your home is less likely to be targeted than unprotected neighboring properties. This means you can sleep peacefully knowing your loved ones are safe and sound with America’s leading smart home security provider. 

But perimeter monitoring systems do more than keep wouldbe home invaders at bay. Doorbell cameras, mounted exterior camera systems, and motion sensors can:

  • Help you keep an eye on the kids or pets while cooking, cleaning, or doing other chores
  • Help prevent tragic pool accidents by alerting you when the poolside door is opened
  • Help protect vulnerable adults like those with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia
  • Detect unexpected visitors, package deliveries, and solicitors

ADT premiere perimeter monitoring systems give you 360 degree home surveillance capabilities and 24 hour security support. This means even if you aren’t there, your family is protected by our team of nationally recognized team of home security experts.

2) Interior Monitoring

While exterior protection is definitely important, the reality is most home emergencies don’t happen within view of the perimeter cameras – they happen indoors. Injuries, accidents, and sudden illness are unpredictable and can strike at any time. That idea can be terrifying, especially if you have young children. And as a provider for your family, the fallout of something happening to you can be even scarier.

Every 40 seconds, someone in the United States suffers a heart attack. Of these, 88 percent occur at home with little warning. These incidents can be terrifying and panic inducing, but responding as quickly as possible is crucial. Cardiovascular disease is still the leading cause of death in the US, meaning a heart attack occurring at home – especially if you are alone – can easily lead to tragedy. 

In these situations, interior cameras and monitoring systems can make all the difference.

With interior cameras and ADT home monitoring services provided through TruHome Alarm, you or your loved ones have a much better chance of survival than if you were on your own. Our advanced technology is able to detect signs of an emergency and alert an ADT professional who can quickly get you the help you need. They can also trigger prompt responses to other in-home emergencies like:

  • Serious falls
  • Fires
  • Flooding
  • Electrical incidents
  • Seizures, strokes, and other medical emergencies

3) Intuitive Operating Systems

Home security systems are only effective if you can use them. Busy families juggling work, child care, pet care, and other obligations don’t have time to engage complicated alarms or sensors, which leaves your home vulnerable. You don’t want to feel like you’re wasting money in getting a home security system, so finding a solution that’s both trustworthy and easy to use is a must. 

Thankfully, ADT security and home monitoring systems can be controlled through the mobile app or with the wall mounted touch screen command center, so securing your home only takes a few moments. Plus, integrating your smart devices into a smart home control system offered by TruHome Alarm makes it easy to control lighting, central heating and cooling, and other aspects of your home from one centralized place. 

This means you can be notified and visually confirm when your children get home from school, remotely deactivate and re-engage your system to keep them safe and secure, and check in on them with your interior cameras all while you’re at work. While these systems do not replace in-home adult supervision, especially for younger children, they do offer an added peace of mind when your children are home alone for short periods.
