How we gather (and how to interpret) our data

Before investing in an alarm system, take a step back to evaluate—and improve—your home’s overall security. You can do many things to enhance protections that cost much less than an alarm system but do just as much good.

We recommend you first improve physical barriers to intrusion before considering an expensive alarm system. But there is evidence that alarm systems do make a difference. Here is advice on the pros and cons of alarm systems and help planning one.

Even if you purchase a home security system with all the bells and whistles, it might not do you any good if it’s designed poorly or installed sloppily. When hiring an installer, consider several points.

Before springing for a whiz-bang electronic home security system, fortify your home’s low-tech barriers, starting with your locks. Our ratings will steer you to area locksmiths that provide excellent advice and workmanship at reasonable prices.

The first step in making any home security plan is to assess your locks. All exterior hinged doors, including doors leading to a garage, should be equipped with good deadbolt locks. A few easy steps can further beef up your locks.

Because homeowners insurance writers offer roughly the same coverage, price comparisons are easier than they would be if each company sold a unique product. But keep in mind that standard policy limits can vary from company to company.
