Crime and home security systems in Lafayette

skyline

Although crime is slowly on the decline in Lafayette, homeowners still find comfort in installing a home security system. Neighborhoods on the west side of the city, such as Milton and Broadmoor, have low crime rates. However, the east side of Lafayette near East Simcoe Street tends to have higher crime rates. The Pont Des Mouton neighborhood also borders several unsafe areas on the east side of town.

Even if your area of Lafayette is generally safe, a home alarm system helps thwart burglary, theft or home invasion.

False alarm fines in Lafayette

To install a security system in your Lafayette home, first obtain a permit from the Lafayette Police Department. A new alarm permit costs $20. If you fail to procure a permit, you will receive a fine, so it’s cost-effective to do it right the first time.

Lafayette allows homeowners three false alarm responses per year. Should your system exceed this allowance, the city of Lafayette will fine you $25 per false alarm up to the ninth time it happens. False alarms 10 through 20 earn you a $50 fine. After 20 false alarms, the police and fire department may not respond.

How much is a home security system in Lafayette

Most home security systems in Lafayette require an upfront installation fee ranging anywhere from $250 to over $1,500, depending on the complexity of the installation.

From there, expect to pay a monthly monitoring fee. These monthly fees depend on the plan you select, as well as additional features. On average, monthly fees are around $15 - $30 per month.

Save money by considering the following factors as you make your decision:

  • Additional features: Will you pay extra for cameras, phone apps and other equipment not included in the regular plan?
  • Activation fees: Are you required to pay a fee to activate the system in addition to installation fees?
  • Installation: Does the service require professional installation or can you choose a DIY option?

Professional vs. DIY home security installation

Lafayette residents can install some home security systems themselves. This DIY approach is ideal for those looking for a stable security system in Lafayette at a low cost.

However, if you require an advanced security system, you’ll likely need the assistance of a professional during installation to ensure every aspect of your alarm system is connected and working properly. However, this does cost far more than taking the DIY route.

When deciding between a DIY and professional home security system installation, consider the age of your home in Lafayette.

  • Older Lafayette neighborhoods boast homes from the late 1800s and early 1900s. This means the wiring and walls may be outdated to the point that a professional installation is key to maintaining the integrity of your home and minimizing mistakes.
  • On the other hand, if you own a newer home in Lafayette, you’ll run into fewer problems doing a DIY installation.
