Steps to Buying the Best Home Security System

Planning to buy a home security system is the initial step in being more proactive when it comes to your home safety, but not all security systems out there are effective in keeping burglars out of your house.

The Better Business Bureau has given smart steps on how to pick the best home security system:

canvass at least three companies before buying a system,

make sure all charges are stated before buying,

scrutinize the contract of the product (especially if its a monitored system),

and choose a professional installer that will also give you a walk through on how to use and care for the home security system properly.

The Better Business Bureau is advising homeowners who are looking to install a home security system to do research first."It is very important to investigate a home security system with the same care you would any major purchase," said Steve J. Bernas, president & CEO of the Better Business Bureau serving Chicago and northern Illinois. "There are differences in systems. Plus, there are too many door-to-door salespeople selling home security systems that don’t always have your best interests at heart."


  • Knowing all you need to know about your home security system can lead you to premium discounts, help you maximize the use of all its functions, and provides you clarification about your contract with the provider.
  • It is emphasized that you get a professional to install your security system because he/she can assess your home type and your lifestyle and respond according to those considerations.
