Assuredly, crime will happen anywhere. What you do beforehand could mean the difference between it happening to you or it being avoided. While we’d like to think that the world around us is safe, a home or business is broken into every 14.6 seconds in the United States, according to the FBI. Here are 10 security recommendations from Smart Security Camera to give you the smartest home safety tips you can use.
Should I Upgrade My Existing Security System?
This is a very good question to ask your self when you are looking at an outdated security system and scratching your head. Every year hundreds of people move into their new home with an old security system which is already installed. It can be a little bit confusing whether to re-activate that system, get rid of it or if it’s time to upgrade to a new security system. Here is what you should do…
If it is older than 10 years, you need a new one!
If it is all wired, it’s got to go!
If the motion detectors are hardwired into the wall along with door sensors, it’s time to pull that security system out and call one of the top security companies Smart Security Camera to come to upgrade and install a wireless one. If it looks old, then do yourself a favor and get a new one! People continually upgrade cell phones to newer, sleeker versions. The same should be done every 5-7 years with their home security systems. With Smart Security Camera promotions the cost of paying to restart the old security system is going to be close to the same as getting a new system altogether so it only makes sense to get a new one.
Can I reconnect it with the current provider?
Yes, but it is not recommended. Then you are missing out on the new promotions they offer to new customers and going straight to the monthly monitoring billing. If the equipment is still in good condition, see what you can get added to it!
Will the technician charge more for an existing security system in my home?
No, this is our job to work around the current security system. We should be able to pull out the old panel and put in a new one. The new one will still be wired and connected to a power source but the rest of the equipment, such as motions, cameras and window sensors, should all be wireless.
Will security companies buy back my equipment?
Not any that we have reviewed or know of. But like most technology, it is outdated and replaced with new and updated technology after 3 to 5 years.
It is more secure and better to get updated to the latest security system. If you moved to a place with an existing system, you can either replace it yourself with a security kit or have Smart Security Camera come out for a FREE Estimate and install a new one for you. Regardless, if it is older than 10 years, it is time to upgrade with a new Smart Security System. Out with the old, in with the new!
