Should you invest in a home security system?

It’s tempting to think that home security is an expensive luxury but here at Amalgamated Locksmiths we say it is an important consideration for property owners. Not only will it offer you peace of mind but it will also help you save on some monthly expenses.


  1. Save on Property Insurance

Your home is your biggest asset and most likely your most expensive investment. Insurance premiums can be pricey but they’re a necessity when protecting your home. There are numerous ways to save on your house insurance and see a little extra cash put back into your pocket every month.

Allianz Home Insurance includes installing alarm systems, additional locks and deadlocks as some of the easy ways to reduce your insurance premium. These security measures not only stop burglaries but also tell your insurance company that you’re at less risk of making a claim. In other words, you’re their ideal customer. A pro-tip from our locksmiths in Melbourne CBD is to install lockable bolts on your windows.

  1. Increase the resale value of your property

A home security system is an additional selling point if your house is on the market. It is a feature buyers look for and it is a must for high-end properties. If your property is an investment property then additional security is an enticing feature for renters and fast becoming an in-demand feature in Melbourne’s apartment rental market.
