Home Security FAQ

Updated: Sep 9

At Alarmco, we believe in the protection and the comfort that Shreveport home security systems can provide. That said, we understand that some people may have some questions before committing to a security system.

Below, you’ll find the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions we hear on a regular basis. These include questions like, “Do I need a home security system?” and “Where should I start with home security?” It’s our hope that you find the explanations enlightening.

Do I Need a Home Security System?

If you’re asking this question, the most likely answer is yes. There are more than a million burglaries in the United States every year, and 70% of these burglaries occur in residential areas.

Aside from the peace of mind that a home security system naturally offers, it also serves as a great deterrent for thieves. Most won’t even try to burgle from a property, when there are easier targets available.

Many crimes are crimes of convenience, and by installing a security system, you’re letting potential criminals know that you mean business.

Where Should I Start With Home Security?

There are a variety of different places you can start when putting together your initial home security setup. Some choose to start with a single piece, such as a camera or motion sensor, that can cover an area they’re particularly worried about.

However, it’s best to have a more holistic security strategy; if a security system is easy to bypass, it isn’t a very good security system.

This is the reason we offer security equipment packages to our customers. Our Security Starter Package is well-suited for those who want to give home security a try before committing too deeply, while the Surveillance At Your Fingertips package is for those who want a stronger deterrent for burglars.

We are one of the best home automation companies that offer Home Automation At Its Finest package, which is designed to give complete and total control for smart home enthusiasts. While this isn’t exclusively focused on security, it does come with accoutrements like cameras and motion sensors.
