Is Home Security Affordable?

Monitored home security is more affordable than most people believe – typically priced far less per day than your morning coffee. And if you’ve ever had your home broken into, you know you can’t put a price tag on peace of mind. If you’re looking for home security here in Jacksonville, here’s what you can expect…

Most Jacksonville security companies charge between $20-$60 per month, depending on the service level you choose. Some companies also charge upfront equipment and installation fees that often add up to hundreds of dollars.

Scott Alarm offers a range of security packages, with monitoring starting as low as $22 per month for homes for pre-installed systems. Most homeowners choose a comprehensive system for $35.95 per month, which includes monitoring service and all the equipment you need to secure your home (control panel, door and window sensors, motion detectors and more).

Home Security is a Wise Investment

A burglary occurs roughly every 15 seconds in the U.S., but few families seriously look into home security until after an emergency directly affects them or a loved one Don’t wait until the damage is already done. Consider this:

  • Homes without security systems are 3 times more likely to be targeted by criminals than homes with an alarm.
  • According to the FBI, the average burglary results in thousands of dollars in property damage or loss, which far outweighs the cost of monthly monitoring.
  • Homeowner’s insurance companies often offer discounts up to 20% for home security systems. While alarms typically earn a small discount, insurers will reward homeowners who add new technologies like home automation and appliance heat monitors to their system.

The peace of mind you gain by investing in home security comes at a much lower cost than dealing with the aftermath of a home emergency.
