Do I need a security system for my home? This is an important question for any homeowner to consider. If you live in an area with a low crime rate and great neighbors, you may be quick to assume that the answer is no. However, today’s security systems offer more than burglar protection. One of the most important benefits is protection from fire. Practically all homes have smoke detectors, but those only alert you if someone is home. With a SkyBest Security System with Smoke Detection, local authorities are automatically dispatched if a fire is detected. No one has to be home to hear the alarm. That is important, because a small fire can grow quickly and every second counts.

Today’s security systems can even protect your family from carbon monoxide poisoning. This colorless, odorless gas is sometimes deadly when it is released from stoves or heating systems. Individuals can be blindsided by carbon monoxide poisoning, since it is not easily detected by sight or smell. Carbon monoxide sensors on your security system are another way to ensure that you are notified if this silent killer is detected in your home.

Living in the High Country of North Carolina, it is not uncommon for pipes to freeze in the winter. This means a flood in your home when the pipes thaw.  Water from burst pipes, faulty plumbing or a leaky roof can mean damaged floors, ceilings, walls and mold issues.  All of these are costly to clean up and repair.  SkyBest Security offers water detection sensors that can alert you at the first sign of water in your home to allow for a quick response.   

A modern security system that is customized to your needs can truly give you peace of mind in knowing your home is secure.  Click here or call 1-800-759-2226 to schedule a free, no-obligation consultation with a local SkyBest Security consultant.
