Whether a first-time home buyer or someone who has recently made a move, the security system is one of the things that gets scrutinized as a part of the purchase. Here are a few things that home buyers are looking for. This makes these items a selling point for new homeowners and those selling a home.
Strategically Located Video Surveillance
While most people don’t want to be in front of a camera every minute of the day, well-placed CCTVs are an essential part of what homeowners are looking for. In particular, they want entryways (including garage doors), windows, and staircases monitored for activity. In the case of new parents, a camera in the baby’s room may provide additional peace of mind.
A Monitored Alarm System
When an alarm system is monitored 24 hours a day by a monitoring service (especially a well-establish service like NMC), homeowners feel more secure. They know that a trained customer service representative is ready to respond to any emergencies that may arise. Monitoring services protect a household against break-in attempts, fire, triggered motion sensors, and certain environmental hazards.
Monitoring of Environmental Hazards
When no one is at home, it is important to be able to get an emergency response to various environmental hazards that threaten to damage property. Hazard monitoring examples would include fire detection, water leak sensors, and temperature sensors. These services can limit damage in case of a fire, water leak, or HVAC unit failure.
NMC is happy to offer monitoring for alarm systems and video surveillance systems as well as some environmental hazards. These services may make a home more appealing to new owners or potential buyers.
