Home security systems are a great way to help keep your home, property, and family safe. From installing security cameras and alarm systems to adding locks and fences, there are many ways to improve the security of your home.

Installing a security system and taking increased security precautions can help protect your home so you can have comfort and peace of mind. Let Better Homes & Gardens Home Services connect you with security companies in your area who can keep your home safe and sound. Simply fill out the form and you’ll receive free quotes from local home security companies.

Get A Home Security Plan

With 24/7 monitoring, video surveillance, remote video viewing, and complex alarm systems, today’s security systems provide great tools to help keep your home safe. But with all the brands and units available, how do you know which is the best security system for your space and needs? With an option for every budget, home security plans can range from complex, top-of-the line systems to more basic systems.

With all the choices, and the importance of keeping your home safe, we recommend consulting a security company in your area. Security companies can evaluate your property and safety needs to determine what security measures would best benefit your home. After you decide on a safety plan, your security contractor can also make sure that your systems are installed and functioning properly to help you reach that peace of mind.

Home Security Systems: Security Cameras and Alarm Systems

Looking to add security cameras or an alarm system to your home? Home security systems can provide video surveillance, set off alarms, and contact the police or a security company if there is a potential problem. When deciding on a home security system, you will need to choose between a monitored system and an unmonitored system. While monitored security systems typically cost more, they are monitored by a security company who can get in contact with local police or fire departments if a problem arises. From finding the right camera and alarm to setting up technology that lets you check in on your home when you’re away, you’ll want to get in contact with a local security company for this project. Home security companies can help determine the best security system for your home and make sure it is installed properly.

Locks Add Quick Security to Your Home

One of the easiest ways to protect your home is with strong locks on doors and windows. From changing out old locks and upgrading worn out locks to adding new locks, a locksmith can help determine the best options for your home’s security. Want to go keyless? Ask your local locksmith about keyless entry options, like keypad locks that can be set with multiple codes. Let Better Homes & Gardens Home Services connect you with locksmiths in your area to help secure your home. Don’t forget to ask your locksmith about adding deadbolt locks for added security.

Install a Fence to Increase Home Security

Not only do fences help define your property line and add to your home’s curb appeal, but they can also act as part of your home’s security. If security is one of your primary reasons for installing a fence, you will want to pay special attention to height, length, and material. An added benefit of security fences is the privacy that you will gain for your yard. Find a local contractor to talk about fencing options for your home with Better Homes & Gardens Home Services.

Exterior Lighting to Protect Your Home

Landscape lighting is a great way to light up your space while also serving as a deterrent for potential intruders. From illuminating pathways and doorways to installing motion detector lighting, there are plenty of outdoor lighting options to choose from. Another benefit of exterior lighting is that it can make it look like you are home when you’re not. When you submit the Better Homes & Gardens Home Services form, you can ask a local contractor about installing exterior lighting for added security.
