The other day our next door neighbors, the ones in the house that’s attached to ours, knocked on our door to tell us that they were thinking about putting in a home security system.
Earlier this year they had talked to us about our shared fence. Sometime in the very near future we’ll be replacing our fence and we hope to work out a deal by getting the work done on our yards at the same time.
I guess our neighbours figured that since we were interested in saving money on our shared fence that we might also be interested in seeing if we could get a discount with the security company by having them come in and put security systems in both of our houses at the same time. They’d already asked the security company and they’d give us a 15% discount if we got a security system at the same time. So … we’re thinking about it.
Our neighbors want a home security system for several reasons – 1. they live in a corner house so they have more security concerns, 2. they have a young child so they’re worried about child safety and 3. most security systems also have quick call buttons for fire, ambulance and police so that’s another safety feature that they’re interested in.
We’re going to think about putting in a security system. Money is pretty tight right now so we might hold off on the offer, but we’d love to get one. I know our home insurance company would also give us a discount on our home insurance if we had a home security system too. Another thing to think about I suppose.
