Home security systems are more about taking preventative measures and really only help minimize the risk of a break-in or injury to you and your family. Depending on the type of system you have, you can either scare burglars away by using motion sensors, sounding an alarm when a window and/or door is broken or opened. If you have a security company monitoring your security system, then they are notified and will contact you in case you do not disarm your alarm and will dispatch help when needed.

So, the short answer is, no, security systems will not stop break-ins from occurring, but they can help minimize the possibility of one from occurring and can make sure help is on the way when you need it!
