How to choose a home security system in Tampa

The best home security systems in Tampa provide peace of mind. Choose a system that will keep you safe and adapt to your lifestyle and needs.

Tampa Skyline

Tampa isn't a dangerous city when you consider its population of 350,000, but it does have a higher crime rate than the national average, according to FBI statistics. In Tampa, there are 86 crimes per square mile while the national average is about 32 per square mile.

Property crimes such as theft and burglary are especially problematic with 22 property crimes per 1,000 people. According to local crime data, 8,286 property crimes are committed annually. Your chances of becoming a victim of a property crime in Tampa are 1 in 46.

Crimes Amount
Tampa burglaries 1,532
Tampa thefts 6,057
Tampa motor vehicle thefts 697

Most Tampa neighborhoods are safe to live and work in, but investing in the right home security system will give you peace of mind when away from home or locked in for the evening. Likewise, it will discourage criminals from affecting your home.

Ybor is a neighborhood undergoing tremendous development and drawing new residents. But, it also borders Nebraska Avenue and the east/central part of Tampa, which has higher crime rates than the rest of the city. New Tampa also has some of the safest neighborhoods in the city, but it's not far from the Fowler and Fletcher areas of north Tampa where there are higher crime rates.

Tampa home alarm permits

The City of Tampa has a False Alarm Reduction Program to decrease unnecessary calls to homes with alarm systems. They help residents avoid false alarms due to human and equipment error. After a warning the first two times, you'll pay a $75 fee on the third false alarm. After that, the cost goes up to $100, and then the next one is $150. The fees continue to climb.

There is no permit required or cost associated with installing a home alarm system in Tampa, but you do need to register your alarm with the city. Print and mail or fax a copy of the Alarm User Registration Form. You'll need to turn this in annually.

Home security systems in Tampa: DIY or professional installation

When choosing a home alarm system in Tampa, you’ll need to decide if you want a DIY security system or a professionally installed system. DIY home security might seem like the logical option, especially if you like making your own home repairs. Because of the wireless security cameras and monitoring devices that won’t damage walls, DIY installation is usually the best option for those in a newer home or apartment.

If you prefer the ease of having a professional set your home alarm system up, choose a company that will install everything and show you how to use it. You'll enjoy a hands-off approach and rely on their expertise. Professional installation is often necessary if you're looking for a customized home security system.

Thinking of moving? If you’re a renter or will be moving soon, choose a company that offers DIY home security systems and has a national presence, so you can move your system with ease.

Most companies only offer one or the other installation option, so choose a company based on which option suits your needs best.
