Only 68% of people use a home security system. CDE Lightband lists some reasons why you should have one

The main reason to have a Home Security System is the sense of security and comfort you gain with an alarm system. Next to being safe, the confidence of feeling safe will help you be more productive and happy.

When you add a security system, you also gain an extra layer of defense against intruders.

Protect your valuables

  • Besides protecting yourself from intruders, you’ll also protect your valuables when you’re not at home. Most home security systems have an alarm that can scare off burglars.

Deter crime

  • If you live in a neighborhood where most of the houses are protected, you’re probably lucky enough to not need a home security system. Studies show that if several houses in a neighborhood have systems, it’s a deterrent for most criminals.
  • If none of your neighbors have a system, it might be you that needs the security system.

Remote access to your home

  • Modern security systems allow you to remotely monitor security cameras as well as thermostats, smart keyless door locks, and other smart devices.

Lowers homeowner’s insurance

  • Most insurance companies will lower your homeowner’s insurance by 20%, which makes the system almost pay for itself.

Electricity management

  • Some home security systems allow you to change your thermostat remotely or even turn off appliances when you’re away.

Keep tabs on the kids

  • If you have electronic door locks, you can remotely open the door for children coming home from school.
  • You can also keep an eye out for who your teens allow in your home while you’re at work. 
  • Video doorbells let you see who is at your door even when you’re not at home. 


  • If you’re not ready to go all-in on a home security system, CDE Lightband’s Smartband features motion detection for your home.
  • Plume Motion connects to your wireless devices and will alert you via the Plume App if there is movement in your home when you’re not there.
  • You can also customize the system to ignore the movement of your pets to avoid false alarms.
