Home Motion Sensors: Why Some People Don't Use Them – Gynesys Best Security

Why You Shouldn't Have A Security System Without Motion Sensors, Part 1

Many people who care about security have some type of home security system, but not everyone has motion sensors. In this blog post from Gynesys Best Home Security, we’d like to go over the reasons why some people neglect to include motion sensors, and why you shouldn’t be without them as part of your security package.

Why Some People Don’t Use Motion Detectors

1. They don’t have a security system at all

There are still a lot of homes in the United States that don’t have any type of security system installed. However, security systems are not just for the rich and famous. Security systems are for everyday folks like you and me, growing families, single people, and anyone who wants to make their home less of a target to would-be intruders. It goes without saying that if you don’t have a home security system at all, you don’t have motion detectors, either. However if you look into the possibility of getting security set up, you shouldn’t neglect the option of having motion detectors installed with it.

2. They don’t know how easy it is to install home motion sensors

When many people think about the possibility of getting home motion detectors installed, their eyes glaze over and they start thinking, “Who am I, and what do I know about how to do that? Isn’t that something that I would have to hire a contractor to do?” It’s natural to think this, because after all, if you’ve never had motion detectors before, it’s unknown, uncharted territory to you.

Would it surprise you to learn that the home motion detectors from Gynesys Best Home Security are actually ones that are so easy to install, you can do it yourself? It’s true. With the advent of wireless technology, gone are the days when you have to hardwire your whole home for a security system. You can buy motion sensors individually, or you can get a better deal on them as part of our Platinum Smart Home Security Package with Monitoring, which comes with 4 motion detectors and the other components you’ll need to set up a robust security system in your home.

3. They are worried that the motion sensors will be more inconvenient than they’re worth.

Some people have the mistaken notion that if they get motion sensor technology in their home, it will be nothing but a hassle. Again, it’s the unanswered questions and the unknown that often steers people away from going the route of motion sensors in the home. “Won’t it be inconvenient?” “Will I have to have the alarm disarmed just to walk around in my house?” “What if I’m away from the house and my cat jumps up on something, triggering a false alarm?”

Here, again, you can lay your fears to rest. Having motion sensors in your home is one of the best, most straightforward ways to detect an intruder instantaneously as soon as they move around in your home. Imagine the convenience of getting an alert on your smartphone and being able to activate your noise alarm and call the police immediately. The peace of mind that comes with this is incalculable.

Now, of course we don’t want you to get jaded by numerous false alarms due to your pets or other non-issues, like fluttering curtains. However, you’ll find that modern motion detectors are a lot smarter than that, with things like adjustable sensitivity and a pet-immune feature. You’ll also have all the instructions that guide you in how to install your motion detectors in the way that will cause the fewest false alarms. 

The true hassle is having your stuff stolen and never getting it back. Getting motion sensors is just part of a useful security system, and you’ll be grateful you got them once you have them.

4. They think motion sensors would be exorbitantly expensive.

A motion sensor to many of us sounds like one of those high-tech gadgets that celebrities have in their homes, but that the average person just wouldn’t be able to afford. Nothing could be further from the truth.
