Your home is probably the most significant investment you will make, so when it comes to protecting your home, leave no stones unturned! Besides an ADT home security system, you should also make sure you insure your home properly. In case of an emergency, a home security system and home insurance clubbed together could save you a lot of money and damage. Contrary to popular belief, home insurance can also cover your personal belongings.
Here are some reasons to consider having a good home insurance in place.
In case of a fire, for example, your home might not be the only one suffering, your loved ones could be hurt too. Having an insurance eliminates this financial stress of your physical belongings and allows you to focus more on your loved ones. You don’t want to worry about how much it’s going to cost to repair your home and so you shouldn’t. You also won’t have to worry about where you’re going to live as the home insurance company not only compensates you for the damage but also provides a temporary place to stay.
Home insurance also covers the homeowners personal belongings. If you keep your receipts in a file, you have enough proof to claim your possessions and get compensated from them in case of floods, fires and other natural disasters. They also help you insure specific items in your home like expensive jewellery and antiques.
Secures Your Investment
Buying your home was most probably not easy and took your years of hard work to buy one. Which means you’ve invested a lot of money into it, and selling your house could get you more than what you initially paid for it, but you will only be able to do that if you don’t end up losing your uninsured home. If you lose your home you will also be stuck with a mortgage that without the home that you will be paying for as the destruction of your home doesn’t make your mortgage go away. That’s a level of financial stress nobody wants to deal with.

Smart Home in 2018 is one of the most trending topics when it comes to home improvements. Off-the-shelf smart LED lights available in markets are fun and easy to install, but the idea it gives of a smart home is limited just to the fact that you can turn on and off your lights through an app.
But there’s much more to a smart home than smart light bulbs, a true smart home system comes with true security that only ADT smart home systems can deliver.
Converting your home into a smart home with Alarm Guard ADT has many benefits, we’ve listed some for you.
Someone is Home
With smart lighting you can deter burglars from intruding by making it seem like you’re home.

You’re home is not only under one roof, but it’s also under one single app!

Toronto is routinely recognized as one of the best cities in the world in which to live. It has great culture, economic opportunities and is generally considered one of the safest major cities in North America. While it’s true that Toronto has better than average per capita crime statistics for such a large city, nobody should ever take their safety for granted, and sometimes crime sprees can break out even in the safest places. This was the case when 14 people were recently arrested in Toronto in a massive break and enter epidemic.
The break ins were completed by a well-organized group and the thieves walked away with what is believed to be almost $3 million in valuables before finally be caught. No matter where you live, there are things that you should do immediately to help secure your home and keep your valuables and your family members safe. Here are some lessons from the break in epidemic Toronto recently faced.
Watch Your Front Door
As we have talked about many times before there are a lot of common sense safety tips to keep your home intruder free. The most important thing to remember about home security, however, is that most burglars start their break in not from a concealed or hidden area of the home, but from the front door. As the break in epidemic in Toronto illustrates, most bad guys will actually go to the front door to see if anyone is home prior to a break in. That is why it is imperative to make sure that your front door is properly secured. What does that entail?
– Have a strong door with strong locks (and hinges and other tips) will keep intruders out.
– Have a security camera at the front of your home. This will provide you with video evidence if there is an attempted break in.
-Have a doorbell camera, because they are the most valuable tool to keep front door intrusion minimized. Having a doorbell camera, such as a Skybell camera, means that you can answer the door from anywhere in the world without having to be there.
The police estimate that 400 burglaries took place in this operation, and most of the break ins involved the burglar knocking on the front door or ringing the doorbell to see if someone is home first. A break in is much more likely to happen if the burglar thinks nobody is home.
Have A Security System
Having a home security system makes your home safer. The fact is that having an ADT system in your home makes it much less likely that you will have a break in. That is because burglars do not want to get caught. Burglars are far more likely to break into a home when there is no security system present, as they do not want to deal with the consequences of having a loud siren go off and having the police dispatched to the home. There is no reason to not have a home security system in place. They provide great deterrent value, amazing features to keep you safe if there is ever a break in, and they can also provide a significant discount on homeowners’ insurance.
Being the victim of a break in is terrible, and the recent break in epidemic in Toronto is a reminder that crime can happen anywhere. Be smart, be safe, and stay protected!
