When it comes to holiday gifts, home security systems don’t seem like the type of thing that would make anyone giddy. However, they will make them safe.
After all, the FBI says that Santa may not be the only one coming down that chimney. Last year, there were approximately 8.6 million property crimes, resulting in losses estimated at around $16.6 billion. There’s also evidence that homes without some type of security system are often a bigger target.
Giving the gift of peace of mind doesn’t have to include a fancy whole-house setup and recurring fees. This year, we’ve seen an unprecedented number of easy security solutions. Maybe a little something could encourage your gift recipient to go larger in the coming year. Maybe it will just help them sleep tight through the holiday season and beyond.
It doesn’t seem like such a boring gift idea now, does it? If you need a little inspiration, check out our list of 9 gift ideas in our 2014 Smart Home Security Gift Guide.
