Undoubtedly, your home should be your safe haven. Unfortunately, there are several factors at play that aim to violate the sanctity of your home. Instead of leaving the security of your home to chance, you can proactively ensure your home security with a home security system. While not all home security systems are created equally, the following information highlights the top five benefits of having a Bates Home Security system protecting your home.

Peace of Mind

When you are away, a home security system can offer you the peace of mind you need. Even when you are home, your home security system provides you with the security of knowing when your entry points have been protected. For example, if you are home alone, you can set your home security system to the "Stay" setting, which will let you know if doors or windows are opened while you are in the house. On the other hand, when you are away, you can set your home security system to the "Away" setting, which activates the motion detection system. As a result, any significant movement in your home will alert the monitoring station to further investigate.

Technological Abilities

Remote services combine several state-of-the-art technologies to make your home more secure and place more control in the palm of your hands. With this technology, you can effectively manage your lighting, locks, watch video live video footage of your home, control your thermostats, and much more. Best of all, you can do all of this from a high resolution touchscreen keypad or right from your smartphone or tablet!


As the quintessential aspect of home alarm systems, your system will serve as a deterrent to potential thefts. Should you install a monitored home security system (which is what we suggest), the alarm company will provide you with signs and window/door decals. As a result, potential thieves and bandits will be discouraged from trying to gain access into your home. In the event someone does breach your home, an alarm will sound off and your alarm system will automatically contact your monitoring station, who will dispatch emergency reponders immediately. Monitored video surveillance will also provide insight to any vandalism or theft that should occur outside of your home.

Fire and Carbon Monoxide Protection

While the typical purpose of your home alarm system is to keep uninvited guests out of your home, your security system also protects you from internal threats. Although most states require smoke and fire detectors in your home, adding smoke detectors to a monitored security system provides significant loss prevention time. Monitored smoke detectors are active 24/7, whether your alarm system is armed or disarmed.

Carbon monoxide is a tasteless and odorless gas that can cause significant medical complication if inhaled. Monitored carbon monoxide detectors protects you in the same fashion that monitored smoke detectors protect you - they are always active and alert emergency responders immediately when trouble is detected. If you have any gas powered devices in your home, carbon monoxide detectors are simply a must.

Lower Homeowner's Insurance

When you have a home security system for your home, you are much more likely to receive lower insurance rates. Simply put, when you have a home security alarm system, your home is much less likely to be vandalized or broken into. In addition, your home is also much less likely to suffer significant damage from fires. As a result, homeowners with home security systems are less prone to file insurance claims and suffer significant losses, which leads to lower insurance premiums.

As the leader in home security, Bates Security offers all of the previously mentioned benefits plus many more. In contrast to large national home security chains, Bates Security employs its own service workers. All of the employees must pass a background check and undergo drug tests as a condition of employment. This attention to detail allows Bates Security to deliver its customers the best possible customer experience.
