There are investments that we make all the time. Some of those investments you can see in instant return on and others that you won’t enjoy the return for years to come. One of the investments that you should be making, but may not fully understand is the investment of security. It can be difficult to understand this when the ROSI (return on security investment) isn’t so obvious. First Lock Security & Technologies is here to explain how to calculate your ROSI and what it can mean for your home.
What Exactly is Return on Security Investment (ROSI)?
Some investments you make give you obvious returns. If you purchase a home, the housing price will surely continue to climb throughout history and fifty years from now, you will have made money on your investment. When it comes to your security, the return on your investment isn’t so obvious. If your security is effective, you won’t see it really doing anything. However, if you purchase one of the best locks money can buy; one that is basically bulletproof, that plays a big role in your ROI. Every threat that you would be worried about that your locks will prevent from happening, show what your ROI is.
Enforce the 10% Rule on Security
When it comes to security, you need to enforce the 10% rule. Basically, you shouldn’t spend more than 10% of the total cost of an object to secure it. To put this simply, if you have $5,000 in jewelry that you are needing to secure, you shouldn’t spend more than $500 to do it. This will ensure you don’t spend way more money on securing something than it is even worth.
How to Secure Your Home & Protect from Invasion & Break-ins
The 10% rule gets much more difficult when it comes to securing your home. There are priceless possessions in there, like the people that you love. When securing your home, it goes much further than the locks that you buy for your doors. You can boost the security of your property with lighting, more secure windows, improved security on your front door and more. If you don’t know how to go about securing your home, you may be best off leaving that up to your locksmith. They have the experience and the training to help you understand where your money will be best spent when it comes to securing your home. You may need to purchase better locks, or even rekey the home so that you know nobody else has access to it. It is worth every penny to invest in the security of your home.
