Why you should invest in a Monitored Alarm this Winter

Winter is a time of year when many homeowners worry about the safety and security of their homes. With the darkness setting in earlier in the evenings and the temperatures dropping, it’s important to take extra precautions to keep your home safe around this time of year. In 2022, burglaries increased by 10% in Ireland, so it is more important than ever to feel secure in your home.

Deciding on a home alarm is a big decision, especially in a market with so many options. One of the many questions you are probably asking yourself is, if you want a monitored or non-monitored alarm. If it is peace of mind you are after, knowing your home is protected when the clocks go back and the darker evening; a monitored alarm is probably your best bet! Having a monitored home security system means that a triggered alarm will send an alert to a monitoring station, who will then send the relevant emergency department to your home, not only taking the responsibility out of your hands, but giving you that extra peace of mind.

HomeSecure offer round-the-clock protection. We protect over 27,000 homes across Ireland, let us tell you some benefits of owning a monitored home alarm.

24/7 Monitoring

If a break-in does occur, the alarm system will immediately notify the monitoring company who can then alert the authorities. The monitoring team is active 24/7, looking after your home when you are not there. This can significantly reduce the response time and increase the chances of catching the intruders.


Deters Intruders

Owning a monitored home alarm and having an bellbox on the outside of your house can help deter burglars and intruders from attempting to enter the home. Taking a preventive measure to deter burglars is always a good idea, deterring intruders is probably the number one reason you are in the market for a security system. When a burglar clocks the flashing light of the HomeSecure monitored system, they are more likely to move on to an easier target.

Additional Support

Monitored companies like HomeSecure offer additional support and come with additional extras, such as panic buttons and cameras. You can add these to your HomeSecure system and ensure you have the maximum protection coming into the winter months.

Remote Monitoring and Control

Your HomeSecure monitored alarm comes with a smartphone app that allows you to remotely monitor and control your alarm system. You can arm or disarm the system, receive real-time alerts and check who armed and disarmed your system. This is a handy feature, especially if you’re heading away during the Christmas period.
