Comparing Alarm Companies



There are a number of considerations you should have in mind when comparing alarm companies.   The type of system that is best for you depends on many different factors including your security needs, type of valuables, type of premises to be protected, among other things.

Investing in an alarm system is a good option for added security.  It provides proven theft deterrence options as well as peace of mind.  Case studies revel most burglars are deterred by the mere presence of an alarm system. Burglars attack unprotected homes considerably more often than homes protected by alarms, so an alarm system can greatly minimize your losses

It is important to take the time to understand the types of security alarm systems available and exactly how they will improve your security.  Being informed is a big part of assuring that you can purchase a system that fits both your needs and budget.

It is important to shop around. What may appear to be an alarm system “bargain” could

actually prove to be a severely compromised or extremely limited alarm system.

 

Alarm systems can be wired or wireless, monitored or unmonitored.   

  • Monitored systems are those where a private company watches your system 24 hours a day, every day, alerting the police if something goes wrong and you cannot be contacted.
  • Unmonitored systems have on-site sirens and flashing lights that alert your neighbors of a break-in, meaning that you’ll be relying on them to contact police if you aren’t home.

The best security comes from monitored systems, because their vigilance is constant.  And did you know that most insurance companies give a reduction on your homeowner’s insurance when an alarm system has been installed in your home?  Be sure to check with your agent for details.

Knowing you and your property are secure increases peace of mind.
