Why you should think about smart monitoring for your home

May 9, 2022

Could your home benefit from better Monitoring?

Home monitoring systems are smarter than ever. Compared side by side, modern security systems are cheaper, easier to install, and far more effective than traditional security systems.

Most smart monitoring systems work with your home wireless system, and anyone can set them up in a few hours or less. Additionally, they're always on regardless of where you are on holiday, at work or sitting in the garden enjoying an overcast British summer.


How necessary are home monitoring systems?

In the US, one burglary happens every 30 seconds, and in the UK, there were 402,000 burglaries between April 2019 and March 2020.

The number of burglaries took a dip in 2020 due to the pandemic, but as global economies begin reopening, we can expect the number of burglaries to rise.

There are a host of reasons why you should consider improving your home monitoring and security, and a smart home monitoring service is the best way to do this. Below you can find some of the key reasons to consider upgrading your home with a home monitoring service:


Home monitoring systems keep you, your family, and your belongings safe.

It's obvious, but we still have to say it. Home monitoring systems keep you, your family, and your belongings safe in two ways:

●    By merely having a home monitoring system installed, potential burglars are disinclined to attempt to enter your home and will likely try elsewhere for an easier target.

●    If thieves target your home, emergency services can respond faster, possibly catching the thieves in the act. By notifying you through an app when a motion detector is triggered or a camera sees movement, you can contact the police during the break-in.

Should your home security system include external cameras, the police could use footage of intruders to arrest the culprits and return your stolen property.

A home monitoring system may lower your home insurance premiums.

In some areas, having a working burglar alarm or home monitoring system is necessary for your insurance to be valid.

While the amount you can save on your premiums depends on the system you choose, the area you live in and who provides your insurance, it's still a great reason to consider installing a smart monitoring system in your home.

It's worth remembering that while not all security measures lower your insurance, that doesn't mean they lack value.


Knowing your home is safe no matter where you are gives you peace of mind.

Going to work or jetting off on holiday, knowing your home and personal belongings are safe,takes significant weight off your mind.

Traditional home security systems require you to remember to set the system before you leave. In contrast, smart monitoring systems can be controlled from anywhere worldwide as long as your phone has an internet connection.

If a disaster happens and your smoke or carbon monoxide alarms go off while you're away from home, a smart system can send an alert to your phone, helping you handle the situation with ease.

Everyone can benefit from better home monitoring. Smart monitoring systems keep you and your family safe, save you money, and provide some much-needed peace of mind.
