There are many ways you can protect and secure your home. When most people consider securing their homes, they think of security systems, cameras, and other electronics. But these are not the only ways you can add protection. You may wish to childproof or pet-proof your property. You may also want to increase or add to your fire protection system.

With so many ways to protect your home, you will also find that there is a wide range of associated costs. Each project has its own materials, timeline, and installation that can impact your bottom line.

This is also true concerning the labor for each project. For example, childproofing may have labor costs ranging from $200 to $2,000, while setting up a new fire safety system may have labor costs of $45 to $65/hr for an electrician or $5 to $6/sq.ft. for sprinkler systems.
