What will a Heartland Security Security system do?

We will customize your security system to best meet your individual needs and our trained installers will teach you and your family how to use the system properly.
More than just intrusion protection

Installing a security system could also be good for your pocketbook. You may save 10 to 15 percent on your homeowners' insurance premium.
Tips to help keep your home secure:
- Don't be predictable. Once inside, thieves do just what you do when you come home: they head for the bedroom. That's where most people keep their valuables. A jewelry box on top of your dresser is very easy to find.
- Keep trees and hedges trimmed. This gives intruders fewer places to hide while they plot to break into your home.
- Keep your doors locked. Even though this sounds simple, you may be surprised that in almost half of all home burglaries, intruders enter through an unlocked door.
