As the New Year approaches, you may get the urge to pack up your bags and celebrate the holiday away from home. Before you pack up your festive 2015 party hat, it is important to make sure that your home and assets stay safe while you are gone. Installing the right home alarm system is the best way to be sure that your home is secure while you are on vacation.

Installing the right alarm system in your home comes with many different benefits. The biggest benefit of having a home alarm system is knowing that your loved ones are safe while they are at home. Having an alarm system installed in your home can be enough to deter a break-in. Another, less known, benefit of having an alarm system in your home is a discounted homeowners insurance rate to help offset the cost of installing the system.

There are two main types of home alarm systems that are available, a local alarm system and a central alarm system. A local alarm system will simply make a loud noise when anyone enters your home. A central alarm system will alert an alarm company when the alarm is triggered, which will then alert the proper authorities. Most central alarm systems also have medical alert options, which will alert the EMS or fire department if there is a medical emergency. The more safety systems that you have with your alarm system, the bigger discount you can qualify for on your homeowners’ insurance policy.
