I'm moving to a gated community in Oceanside, CA. Should I activate my home security system?

My new house in CA is in a gated community (no guard on duty, but walls and a gate). My house already has a security system built in. Should I pay $29/month to activate it? Or is it not necessary? (If I activate it, I would get 15% off my home-owners insurance.)
