Investing in home security if you own your property is common sense. After all, if you have money riding in the house you reside in, then you naturally want to protect it, boost your property value, and preserve your belongings.
However, what is less known is that renters themselves should also consider getting home security. Sure, you’re not directly responsible for the space, but the benefits, hidden as some of them may be, make it worth it to invest in a home security system.
Let’s find out what they are.
Wireless Convenience and Installation Processes
A big benefit of the trends in technology and innovation is that many home security systems can be completely wirelessly. So, you can get the safety and security benefits of a home security system without needing to drill holes in the wall or permanently install things, making it more palatable to your landlord, increasing the chances you will get approval to install such devices.
In fact, since you are not opening the walls or doing any significant work, it’s possible to install things entirely on your own, though a professional team can still help streamline the process. Regardless of which way you go, the process is straightforward, offering you flexibility in what you want to set up, while also allowing you to choose a budget and level of surveillance that feels comfortable to you.
Renter Insurance Discounts
Aside from scaring off intruders and keeping you and your roommates safe, there’s also a hidden monetary benefit to this investment.
You likely have renter’s insurance to cover losses or particularly damaging occurrences that you need to be compensated and covered for (and if you don’t, you should consider investing in protection like this).
What you might not realize is that in having a home security system capable of alerting authorities to home invasions and robberies, you can also broker a deal with your insurance company to lower your monthly premiums.
Other ways to lower premiums include getting your landlord to replace locks and hinges, and upgrading smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms.
The last point we want to raise is the idea of having home automation built in by a security company. A lot of this equipment includes things like smart, remotely-operated door locks, or video doorbells that turn on when pressed.
This can really just make your life a lot easier, and who doesn’t want an easier life?
There are a lot of reasons you should get a home security system, regardless of whether you rent or own. In reading this article, questions and answers may have been raised, which if you desire could prompt future research and even more insight into this topic.
Hopefully, it’s now clear why even a renter should consider investing in a home lock and security system.
