Home Security in Illinois

Illinois residents might find it surprising to learn that, compared with the rest of the nation, they face a lower chance of becoming a victim of property crime: only one in every 44 people experience theft, burglary, or motor vehicle theft in a typical year. However, for the 58,237 people who were burglarized in one recent year, statistics don't convey the fear and stress that accompany that invasion of their safety and privacy.

Home security companies in Illinois provide a reliable means of protecting home and family against would-be burglars, with attractively-priced packages that include 24/7 home monitoring. Many of those services offer users the ability to remotely control their home security system; using an iPad, smartphone, or other device, homeowners can check the status of their home security, lock doors, turn lights on and off, and enable or disable their alarms. For Illinoisans that travel frequently for business or pleasure, they derive significant peace of mind from being able to access real-time data and change settings on demand from anywhere in the world.

With a large number of Illinois residents who rent rather than own, wireless home security systems comprise a noteworthy share of the market. Because these systems are easy to install and have flexible configuration, users can implement them on their own and without the consent or cooperation of a landlord. This is especially useful when a rental property does not currently have a home security system in place before a tenant occupies the residence.

Most home security system providers can also help clients to assess other areas of improvement beyond the electronic system itself. For example, a homeowner may benefit from installing brighter exterior lighting, using a timer on interior lights when going on vacation, or changing locks on the doors when moving into a new home.
