Benefits of Home Security systems in California

In recent years, California’s crime rates have been historically low, but they’re still higher than the national averages. A Vivint home security system can help protect you, your family, and your home from criminals and other emergency events.

Alarm systems are known to deter criminals from even considering your house. If someone does attempt to break in, Vivint sounds an alarm, notifies you immediately, and notifies the police while cameras continue to record in and around your home.

You can watch video directly from the Vivint app, reduce false alarms with notifications, lower your homeowner’s insurance, and keep your home safe from burglars, even when you’re on long vacations.

Break-ins aren’t the only concern for California homeowners, though. Threat of fire or smoke damage is very real here, plus anyone can become a victim of carbon monoxide without the right equipment.

Outfit your home with Vivint’s security sensors, cameras, and smoke detectors to keep your family and property safe.

With Vivint’s top-ranked security and home automation systems, you can rely on our 24/7 monitoring, award-winning customer service, and state-of-the-art devices.

Frequently asked home security questions in California

What should a home security system include?

California is a big place with a diverse range of neighborhoods and homes. So, when it comes to the best California home security systems there is no one-size-fits-all solution. The best security system for your home will depend on your location, budget, circumstances, and needs.

That being said, a comprehensive home security system would likely include the following:

Security cameras. The quality of your security cameras can make or break the proficiency of your security system. Smart cameras that don’t just record crime, but actually prevent it, are the way to go.

Security sensors. Security sensors are essentially the trigger of your security system, sounding the alarm if they’re triggered. Sensors can be placed at every entry point to ensure total protection.

Safety alarms. If you’ve lived through California wildfires, you know it’s not just intruders or thieves you need to protect your home against. Vivint Safety Alarms can help prevent fires, floods, and gas leaks.

24/7 monitoring. One of the things that sets Vivint apart from other home security systems is 24/7 monitoring. When an alarm sounds in your home, our award-winning monitoring team will be notified immediately, connect with you, and send emergency personnel if needed.

Vivint systems are customized to meet your needs. Give us a call to see which products would work best for your home. Or check out the Vivint Buying Guide to learn more.

Is it worth paying for a security system?

According to the 2021 FBI estimated crime statistics, there are 7,009 vehicle burglaries in California every year, 11,774 vehicles stolen every year, 2,297 robberies every day, and 52,085 property crimes every year. For many residents a security system is well worth the cost not only because it helps them keep their home and loved ones safe, but because it also gives them peace of mind. For Vivint customers in California, smart security cameras alone justify the cost. See why.

Which type of camera is best for home security?

In order to figure out the best security camera(s) for your California home, it’s important to first understand the different types of security cameras, how they’re powered, and what they can do. It might even be helpful to reference use-cases and compare different types of cameras.

Vivint offers three smart security cameras that are built to deter real threats and increase the security of your home. The Doorbell Camera Pro (Gen 2) proactively protects your porch, the Outdoor Camera Pro (Gen 2) keeps an eye on the perimeter and sends lurkers running, and the Indoor Camera keeps you connected and lets you know when someone is detected in your home.

What is in a smart home?

Generally speaking, a smart home is a home equipped with security, lighting, heating, and electronic devices that can function automatically and be controlled remotely. With a Vivint smart home setup, you can manage all your home processes from a single control panel or remotely using your smartphone. More and more California residents are enjoying the benefits of smart home automation.

What’s included in a smart home? An effective smart home system can be as complex or simple as you want it to be. For instance, if you live in an apartment in L.A., your setup might just consist of a doorbell camera to monitor your front doorway and a smart thermostat to remotely control the temperature in your home. Learn more about everything you need to make your home smart.

What is home automation?

Home automation integrates the smart devices in your home, allowing for automatic or remote control of different devices and settings.
