Stay Safe with a Home Security System

A burglary happens every 2 minutes in the UK and £181 million is stolen from homes in London alone every year.

When a monitored home security system can cost just £30 per year, it makes sense to invest a small fee for protecting yourself, your home and having some peace of mind.

Before you buy however, there are a few things you may want to consider in order to help you find the perfect security system.

You’ll want to choose a system that is in line with the level of burglary risk in your area as well as what your valuables are worth.

Why invest in a home security system?

No longer stressing about those late-night sounds or feeling pangs of worry whilst on holiday away from home are just some of the benefits to investing in a home security system.


The big one! A security system offers protection for your family and the expensive personal items in your home.


A security system lets you monitor the goings-on in your house. You can check from your phone if the kids have come home, or whether your pet is jumping on the sofa.


Monitored alarm systems provide round-the-clock support from a company’s team of trained security professionals. They will respond instantly to any sign of serious danger.


Don’t just pick up the pieces; stop a potential break-in before it happens. Security systems can help convince thieves that it’s just not worth it.

What should you consider before you purchase?

Burglars are likely to target homes that are far away from other properties or next to quiet back alleys for example. So, if you live in a high-risk area or building, you’ll want to consider a more advanced system with more capabilities (such as an app for remote monitoring).

In terms of cost, if your valuables have a high worth, spending more on a high-quality system can help you avoid paying the high price of burglary.

A security system can cost anything between £25 to £1,800, with the average home security package priced around £500. It's important to remember that the more expensive ones offer better protection quality and services that are worth the higher price in the long run.

The last thing to consider is the ease of use. The best providers will install the system for you and explain how to use it.

Did you know? 63% of burglaries happen to homes without a basic security system.

On the flip side, 77% of people with at least a basic home security system are not burgled.*
