Benefits of Hiring an Accredited Home Watch Service

About Accreditation

Accredited members of the NHWA must pass a strict vetting process for consumer complaints or issues. They must carry the proper insurance (which is always available for review). They must agree to uphold the highest ethics in the Home Watch industry. Accredited members of the National Home Watch Association will always look out for the best interests of the Homeowner.

  • An Accredited Home Watch service’s regular visits to your property may prevent or lessen property damage.


  • An Accredited Home Watch service will create a presence in your home which may deter squatters and other intruders.

  • An Accredited Home Watch service will implement your storm plan.

  • Homes controlled by an HOA/POA have bylaws that dictate how their exterior and ground are to be maintained.
