How much does a home security system cost?
The total cost of a home security system can be measured in three phases: purchase price, installation costs, and operating costs over time. Purchase price varies by provider, equipment package, and payment options.
Some home security systems come with only basic door & window sensors. More high-end equipment packages, come with a touch-screen control panel and the option to add outdoor home security cameras, all of which require professional installation. Professional installation services may cost up to $250 or more depending upon several factors. The Federal and provincial government regulate who can install security systems. All installers must be insured and have complete background checks.
The home security market offers many equipment packages that center around an audible alarm to scare of intruders who trigger a door/window sensor. Monitored home security systems cost between $30 and $90 per month. Although criminology research suggests most intruders flee at the first sound of an alarm, complete home security offers much more than just crime prevention. Protection from natural disasters, home appliance malfunctions, and medical emergencies should also be considered. In addition to providing more comprehensive protection, complete home security systems that are backed by professional monitoring services may also qualify customers for discounted homeowner’s insurance premiums of up to 20 percent.

Natural Gas Leaks and Carbon Monoxide
Protection by Detection.
Many gas leaks are slow and undetectable. This can eventually lead to natural gas poisoning, which can have serious effects on the health of all of a home’s living occupants: humans, pets and even plants. Symptoms of natural gas poisoning include gastrointestinal problems, an increase in allergic reactions, fatigue, forgetfulness, high red and white blood cell counts, migraines, pain and discomfort.
Carbon Monoxide can build up indoors and poison people and animals who breathe it.The most common symptoms of Carbon Monoxide poisoning are headache, dizziness, weakness, upset stomach, vomiting, chest pain, and confusion. Carbon Monoxide symptoms are often described as “flu-like.” If you breathe in a lot of Carbon Monoxide it can make you pass out or kill you. People who are sleeping or drunk can die from Carbon Monoxide poisoning before they have symptoms.
