Choosing Home Security | CPI Security

Could CPI be the right choice for you?

If you’re here, you’re probably considering a new home security system. Welcome! You’ve made a great choice by looking for the best way to protect your family.

We completely understand if you’re feeling overwhelmed. With so many possibilities for home security and automation, narrowing down your options can be overwhelming. Today, in addition to serving as your alarm system, your home monitoring system can be so much more. It’s pretty amazing what the advanced technology and wireless systems can do in your home, from changing the thermostat to locking your front door, and all from your smartphone!

We want to help you feel completely informed when it comes to selecting a home security system. Read on for some of the considerations to keep in mind, and what we recommend you look to get out of your system.

Protection you can count on

Let’s start by forgetting all the extras, and focus on what matters most: the actual security. Because there’s one main reason why people choose to equip their house with a security system. It’s the total peace of mind that comes with knowing your family and your home are safe and protected, whether you’re there or away.

When choosing your home security system, make sure that you’ll be receiving the protection you can count on. Look for fast alarm response times and 24/7 monitoring. Ensure the security company you count on has a monitoring plan you’re most comfortable with, as some do outsource their monitoring services rather than having their own central station.


Convenient access and control

Thanks to all of the advances in automated home technology, accessing and adjusting your home’s security and other systems should be simple. Whether you prefer to touch a button on your smartphone, tablet, or computer, or simply speak your commands by connecting with an Alexa-enabled device, having complete control of your alarm system has never been user-friendlier.  Since this is such a huge part of using your home monitoring system to its fullest extent, we believe a smartphone app for convenient access and control should be an included part of your system, not an extra cost.


Customization just for you

Here’s where it gets fun. Your home security setup doesn’t have to be a cookie-cutter copy of every other alarm system out there. If you select a system that has opportunities for customization, you get to think about the aspects of home automation you care about most and choose those add-ons that are most important to you. Just a few of the options: fire monitoring, door locks, garage door control, and smart thermostats. And we can’t forget the cameras, cameras, and more cameras! 

If it’s important to you to be able to deck out your house with the one-of-a-kind system of your choice, make sure there’s an opportunity for customization with whichever home security provider you go with.


Understanding Home Security Needs


Assessing Your Home’s Vulnerabilities


Before selecting a home security system, assessing your home’s vulnerabilities is crucial. Conduct a thorough evaluation of entry points such as doors, windows, and garages to identify potential weak spots. Consider factors like neighborhood crime rates, visibility of your property, and any previous security incidents to gauge your home’s susceptibility to intrusions.


Identifying Family Safety Concerns


Understanding your family’s safety concerns is paramount when choosing a security system. Consider the specific needs of household members, including children, elderly family members, or pets. Consider factors like:

  • Emergency Response Times
  • Medical Alert Options
  • Remote Monitoring Capabilities



Determining Security System Requirements


Once you’ve assessed vulnerabilities and identified safety concerns, it’s time to determine the specific requirements for your security system. Based on your home layout and family dynamics, decide on essential features such as motion sensors, surveillance cameras, smart locks, and alarm systems. Consider whether you need:

  • Professional Monitoring Services
  • Mobile App Integration
  • Home Automation Capabilities


These tools can help tailor the security system to effectively meet your family’s needs.


Selecting the Right Security Package


Consultation and Evaluation Process



Engaging in a consultation and evaluation process with a home security provider is the first step in selecting the right security package. During this phase, security experts will assess your home’s layout, vulnerabilities, and specific safety requirements. You can gain valuable insights into the best security solutions tailored to your needs through a detailed consultation.


Choosing Components and Add-Ons



Once the evaluation is complete, it’s time to choose the components and add-ons that will comprise your security package. Consider essential elements such as door and window sensors, motion detectors, security cameras, and smart home integration. Based on the evaluation and consultation, select additional features like environmental sensors, panic buttons, or key fobs to enhance your security system.


 Budget Considerations and Financing Options



Budget considerations are crucial in selecting the right security package for your home. Evaluate the upfront equipment costs, installation fees, and monthly monitoring charges to ensure they align with your financial plan.


Additionally, inquire about financing options or flexible payment plans offered by the security provider to make the investment in home security more manageable. By weighing budget considerations alongside the value of the security features, you can make an informed decision that prioritizes both safety and financial stability.
