        • The Insurance and Tax Advantages of a Home Security System

          A very important but often overlooked benefit of a security system is that it can give you substantial savings on your insurance premiums and tax liability. In fact, it’s not unusual for savings in these areas to largely offset the cost of installation and monitoring.

          Reduce Your Insurance Premiums

          Insurance companies know that monitored security systems help prevent losses. In fact, a home with a security system is far less likely to be burglarized than a home without a system. So most insurance carriers offer discounts on insurance premiums when you install or upgrade a security system. Depending on the type of system installed, this can mean savings of 5% to 20% or even more on your premiums.

          Reduce Your Tax Liability

          A home security system is usually considered a “capital improvement” on a home. If you make such an improvement you can add the cost to your home’s adjusted cost basis at the time of sale. This reduces your capital gain and, therefore, your capital gains tax when you sell your home. By the way, security systems are very popular with new home buyers, which will make your home easier to sell. At the same time, monitoring fees are normally eligible for treatment as a deductible business expense. This is also true if you are running a business out of your home, for that portion of the system that is protecting the “business area.” (See your accountant for advice concerning your particular situation.)

          To find out how you can put these kinds of cost savings to work for you, while protecting your home or business at the same time, just contact us here at Valley Alarm for a free, no-obligation consultation.

        What Our Customer's Say...

        • “I recently had a security system put on my entire home. I shopped around to other commercial name brand alarm companies and didn’t get the personal customer service I was looking for. I wanted my families safety to be a priority, how ever with the large commercial names I was just another paying customer. I came across Valley Alarm. They treated me like family. When I called I wasn’t sent to anything automated. I talked directly to someone who could help me. They installed my home system quick and patiently waited and taught me everything I needed to know. Their prices are reasonable and you are treated priority. I would recommend them to anyone.”

          – Kristen M.
        • “Valley Alarm uses top of the line, reliable equipment. Their sales staff, installers, and customer service are all professional and knowledgeable. In the time I have had the alarm, it has given my family peace of mind and a sense of security. The customer service number is always answered by a human being and not a machine. They are always helpful and courteous when contacted.

          I have had no false alarms or equipment failures. I have accidentally set off my own alarm on a couple occasions by opening a door before I remembered to turn the alarm off. On both occasions, the alarm company called my house to check on my status within one minute.

          I would recommend this company above the larger commercial companies to anyone wishing a security system for their home or business.”

          – Anthony B.
        • “We have been using Valley Alarm for several years on several properties. We are so happy with the service that we are will switch over our other properties when those contracts run out.

          When you call Valley Alarm you get the feeling your talking with someone who knows you and your company. Friendly professional staff handle any questions quick and efficient.

          The newest system we installed is awesome. Multiple codes assigned to each personnel with email notifications of the name, time, and address of entry and exit, gives a sense of control over your properties security I have never had before. You no longer have to call for a log or wait till the next day to see your entry logs. Thanks for all the great work.”
