If you're thinking of investing in a home security system, then there's something you need to be on the lookout for: scams. Stories like this recent home security scam may give you pause, but they don't mean you shouldn't install a security system. It just means you should consider these important factors.


  • Don't purchase a system from someone who approaches you in your home. Do your research online and hire the most qualified company in your area.

  • Everyone knows they must get everything in writing – but too many people don't read the fine print. The security in your home is important, so take the time necessary to read the fine print.

  • Ask around. Find out who your neighbors family uses. Then do your own research. It's a good idea to take their experiences into consideration but that shouldn't be the only thing you consider.


At best, a scam artist will separate you from your hard-earned money.  But even worse would be the end result if your home isn't adequately covered from specific perils.  These tips will help you to find the best in home security systems for your needs and to avoid scams.
