Q: My husband travels a lot for his work, so I'm often home alone with the kids. We've been thinking about buying a security system, but we might be moving at the end of this year. Is there a temporary solution we can use in the meantime? - Christine M. from Hickory, NC, listener on 1290 AM WHKY.
A. You're not alone, Christine. Many find themselves in a similar situation. You need a home security system now but you are afraid it might not be the right time to make the investment. The good news is, the temporary solution you're looking for can also be a permanent solution if you choose the right security system to begin with.
You've heard us talk about our sponsor SimpliSafe before. SimpliSafe offers home security packages with 24/7 professional monitoring without annual contracts. That's just one of the reasons why we recommend its services. But another reason is because SimpliSafe also makes it easy to build your system over time based on your current needs. You can also take your system with you from place to place, and simply update the account details for SimpliSafe's monitoring service.
This means you don't need to hunt for a temporary fix to the current problem you've encountered. The truth is, you need peace of mind now, and the best way to get it is with a powerful home security system.
During this time, while your husband spends much of his time traveling for work, we recommend you get started with a SimpliSafe system.

Whether you're currently living in a small apartment or a larger home, it's a good idea to start building your perfect home security system now. Then, should your family wind up moving later this year, you can always take the equipment with you to your new home.
Down the road, should you find that your new home is larger, you have the option to add to the system to accommodate the new location. Additional sensors can be added at any time for as little as $15. Plus, SimpliSafe never locks you down with a pricey, long-term contract. Get 24/7 monitoring at home for just $15 per month. Cancel or downgrade at any time.
