Why do I need home security?
You may be thinking “why do I need home security?”. According to a study released by the NZ police– after Iceland, NZ is the second safest place to live in the world. Despite this, 77% of crimes reported in 2018 were crimes against property. With 48,669 burglaries to residential properties reported in 2018.
An alarm system is not going the first line of defence for your home, you still need to be on guard and ensure to keep your home locked, safe and secure. But a home security system will provide you with a safety net and afford you with a sense of security that your home and family are safe.
The security systems we like to recommend and install here at Coastal Connections, are Arrow Head. Arrow Head is a New Zealand based company, who design and manufacture right here in New Zealand. They are local in fact, just down the motorway based in Albany. Arrowhead offers perfect security solutions for homes and small businesses.
Arrowhead systems have a wide range of products available to suit various budgets and requirements. From simple alarm systems up to home automation systems. The range includes alarms systems, gate automation, CCTV and intercom systems.
The Elite system is controllable via your smartphone or remote control. It allows you to monitor your home with security systems, and also allows for home automation too (if you are interested in home automation head over to our blog post here). Amongst other things, with the elite system, you can monitor doors and windows via sensors and you can also arm/disarm your alarm system from your smartphone. The system also comes with the ability of heat and smoke detection allowing you total peace of mind.
A home security system is a great asset to your home. Although NZ is generally a safe place to live, we are not all exempt from home break-ins, installing a home security system provides your home or small business with a much-needed safety net.
