Five Tips For Getting A Budget-Friendly Security System For Your Property

Written by Sheldon Pawson
Director // Security Expert

Times are tough. Have a chat with any South African and this phrase will come up. You don’t have to look far to see it, as the president emphasised this at State of the Nation address earlier in June. The economy is experiencing challenges; the cost of living remains tight, and all the while, we still have to grapple with a high crime rate. Extra security is a necessity for every South African, but what if you feel you can’t afford one? You deserve to feel safe and secure, so we’ve put together a few pointers on how to keep your home or business security affordable.

  1. Figure Out Your Weak Spots & Prioritise Strengthening Them

Perhaps you already have some security installed, or perhaps you have none. Many factors play a role in keeping you safe. Whether it’s the state of your fence, gates, doors or windows – make sure you repair any existing weak links for the greater good of your entire system.

  1. Join A Neighbourhood Watch Or Community Policing Programme

Safety begins beyond the confines of your yard. Consider contributing to or participating in community safety programme or neighbourhood watch/patrol. If the entire neighbourhood is safer, your property becomes more secure by extension.

  1. Shop Around For Quotes From Different Security Companies

Just because most of the properties near you are protected by the same place doesn’t mean yours has to be as well. Seek out alternatives to see if they offer affordable packages with the same coverage.

  1. Tailor Your Security System To Suit Your Needs

What do you need versus what you would you like? You won’t necessarily need all the bells and whistles, so explore what it would entail only to install certain security measures.

  1. Team Up With A Security Company That Offers A Variety Of Options

If you can’t tailor your security system, you can try different options that are pre-packaged for you. All you have to do is ask.

Every home or business has its own needs, and these may differ from neighbours, near and far. All you have to do is find a system that works for you and gives you peace of mind.
