Home Security Questions | (843) 492-0874

Many Myrtle Beach home owners often ask us about the level of home security they need. This question requires answering specific questions regarding your specific level of home automation. There are several systems from which to choose and this decision requires careful consideration.
  • Do you own your Myrtle Beach home or are you renting?
  • Do you require remote mobile access to monitor your home?
  • Are you interested in having cameras throughout your home?
  • Do you have plans to sell your home and move in the immediate future?
  • Do you need more than an anti-burglar system? Do your need fire detection?
  • Are you concerned with the reputation of the home security company you select?
By answering these simple questions you are able to select the home security system that best fits your needs and lifestyle. Many security systems come with extra bells and whistles which you may not need and would never use.

Now that you have answered these home security questions – what’s next?

Now it is time to review your options with a security specialist and get the best system for you  and your families protection. Here is a short list of features to investigate:

The cost – your investment needs to cover the cost of buying security equipment, installation and monitoring subscription cost which is usually a monthly cost. Some systems can be installed yourself. However, for your peace of mind knowing your family is protected we recommend selecting an alarm system professional.>/p>

Installation – when you meet with the home security company, make sure that installation is included in the cost of the system. Yes you could save some money by doing it yourself or hiring a handyman, but this is one area you don’t want to cut corners. For most companies, this is part of their package. Make sure you confirm this when you consult with them.

Monitoring – this is a very important component of your alarm system. Almost all companies will have a central station that monitors their units around the clock. There are 3 basic ways that monitoring can be setup: Cellular monitoring, which is the highest cost but safest option, phone line, and internet – the least expensive.

Home automation – this system allows you to control your appliances and security equipment while you are away from your home. This has become a very popular system in recent years, however, there will be additional charges for these features.  You can watch live camera feeds and arm or disarm your system from mobile devices.

Contracts – read the fine print on any contract. Check the length of the contract and the terms. Confirm exactly what the contract covers. Are items such as moving the system covered?

Warranties – Most Myrtle Beach home security companies offer warranties that cover repairs and/or replacement of the system. Confirm all warranty coverage information with the representative before signing the contract.

Scalability – your life changes with the addition of new family members, the need to care for aging parents and other life events. Make sure you are able to easily upgrade or downgrade your system. Can you make changes without extensive complications?
