Keeping the ones you care about Safe!

Many homes are equipped with alarm systems to discourage burglars from breaking in. Most families are starting to think about or have already booked their summer vacation. While preparing for their getaway, is it imperative that they consider safeguarding their homes. Click here to find out the most likely way a theif will want to break in.

My in-laws live in what is considered to be one of the safest neighborhoods. They have never had an alarm system set up in their home, they had a German shepherd (Rocky) who guarded the house. For them, an alarm system was never important. They never had any problems. When our dear Rocky went to his final resting place in his old age, a few months passed and that’s when it happened… My in-laws had their first break in.

There are often people lurking around homes looking for their next target. This blog is not intended to scare you or make you live in fear! It is intended to communicate that it is better being safe than being sorry. There are many great Alarm companies out there. Here are two companies we often hear about Alarm force, and ADT. It’s also a good idea to research and ask your family and friends who their companies are, and what their experience has been. Here are a few important questions to ask:

  • Is the alarm directly connected to the central?
  • What are the steps taken before law enforcement it called?
  • Will all my entrances and windows be covered?
  • If the windows are not covered will there be sensors that go off if someone breaks in from the windows (if so how many and where)?
  • If you have a pet, will the sensors be set up to not go off with the movement of my pet but will detect a person in the house?
  • How much will all this cost?
  • Will the installation be included?
  • Are there any hidden costs?
  • If I cannot be reached will you have a second name on file to contact?

Alarms are not only good for when people are out of town, some burglars study the behaviors of the people living in their target homes so that they can pay them a visit when everyone is at work! There are also alarms that can be activated while everyone is sleeping so that if any doors are open while everyone is sound asleep the alarm will go off! Great way to keep the kids in the house after a certain hour!

Any good companies you’ve worked with? Would you like to recommend any to our readers? Let me know I’d love to hear from you!
