Maintaining a safe and secure home or business should be one of your top priorities. Keeping this in mind, the following are ten reasons to install a fire and security system:
1. Give your family peace of mind
Knowing that your family is safe and secure within your home will give you and your family peace of mind.
2. Keep your family safe
Not only will a fire system help prevent injuries or death by warning you in time to get your family to safety, but a security system can help to keep potential intruders from breaking in while you're family is at home and possibly asleep, thereby adding an extra layer of protection to your home.
3. Lower your insurance premiums
By installing fire and security systems, you reduce the chances of a fire breaking out and damaging your home or possessions as well as of someone breaking in and stealing something. This, in turn, means that there's less of a chance that the insurer will have to pay a claim – which is what they want!
4. Prevent the theft of irreplaceable values
While your possessions may be insured, a thief can still steal items that have sentimental value and are not replaceable. A security system will help keep potential thieves at bay – and if they do break in and steal, our CCTV camera systems can go a long way in identifying the thieves and helping police trace the stolen items.
5. Prevent your home from being destroyed
Even if insurance will pay for your home's destruction from a fire, you and your family will still be displaced for quite some time. It will take a long time to find a new home and get new possessions. A good fire system will prevent your life from being interrupted in such a way.
6. Protect your employees
Installing a fire system in your company's property will help to protect your employees. A fire system is especially important for businesses that are at higher risk, such as restaurants or book stores.
7. Prevent theft of sensitive data, products or furniture
Most businesses are properly insured so that if someone breaks in and steals furniture or products, they won't experience too big of a financial loss. However, if someone breaks in and steals important data, it could hurt your company's standing with your business partners and customers as well as put partners, suppliers, customers and employees at risk for things like identity theft.
8. Prevent business interruptions
Damage caused to your business due to fire or theft may be insured, but it could cause serious business interruptions. This means that you may not be able to accomplish day-to-day business tasks, thereby causing you to lose money and potentially customers.
9. Prevent your business from going under
A fire that completely destroys your company's building can cause your business to go under – even if you're company property is insured. This is because it could destroy your entire infrastructure – all of your business records and information. Not to mention that it could take weeks or even months to get back up and running, and the amount of business you will have lost during that time could cause your company to fail.
10. Catch thieves and intruders
Even if thieves and intruders are able to break in and commit theft on your company property, you'll have a better chance at tracking them down with a security system that uses CCTV cameras.
