As the economy worsens the crime rate is also worsening. Many people are turning to crime to get the money they need. There is a burglary every 15 seconds in this country. The police often have trouble catching these burglars because most people don't know about the crime until hours later. As a result the same criminals often burglarize many homes. Most burglaries that occur are done by people looking for small items that they can sell.
As burglaries have begun to rise so has the request for home security systems. Most people don't think that a burglary can happen to them. In fact burglaries occur in all types of neighborhoods to all types of people. People can't rely on the fact that they consider their neighborhood to be a good one.
How many times have you heard someone say that their dog is their security system? While dogs will help keep intruders out to some degree, they're not effective all the time, especially for smaller dogs, it just isn't enough. So what should you do if there are problems in your area and your dog just won't be enough?
The best way to deter burglaries is to get a good home security system installed. One of the latest features includes a remote device to set and disarm your alarm. This makes it easier to operate your system and reduces false alarms. The best home security systems have 24-hour monitoring centers. If the alarm sounds the system will immediately call out to the monitoring center. They will contact the homeowner/business owner and the police department. Audible alarms help to deter criminals who will run as soon as the alarm sounds. Choose loud alarms that can be heard in all parts of the home or business so that neighbors will be alerted.
Install door and window protection as well as motion detectors that will ensure that your home or business is well protected. The installation professional will review your home or business and make any recommendations to you for ways to improve your security. Be sure to put up an outside sign and decals that indicate that you have an alarm system. This often causes burglars not to even consider your home or business. A two-way voice communication system lets you talk to the monitoring center. The best systems will give you peace of mind and will keep you, your family and your business safe.
A monitored system is also a good thing for people living alone and for people who are elderly. Often people in this situation can be targets for burglary and home invasions. A 24 hour monitoring system gives that extra bit of protection. A Medical Alert System is also ideal for elderly people. The Medical Alert system can integrate into your security system and help is only a touch of a button away.
This type of monitoring system is perfect for situations where a problem has arisen and you are still in the house. If there is a problem in your home and you're still in the home, if you answer the phone you can stay on the line with the person at the monitoring center to make sure that everything is alright.
Besides setting up the security system to monitor for break-ins the system can provide additional support. You can choose options to wire the system to monitor for smoke or fire alarms. This is particularly helpful when you aren't at home. As soon as the smoke or fire alarm sounds the remote monitoring center will be able to get the fire department on its way quickly. This fast response can reduce the amount of damage to your home.
Other monitoring can be set up for other home emergencies. For example you can have an alarm set up for water or floodwater. You can also have a temperature sensor alarm that may alert the center when the temperatures are freezing. These alarms are perfect for your summer home or property that you don't always visit.
You can't put a price on safety. However, did you know you can save up to 20 percent on your homeowners' insurance by installing a monitored home security system? Not a bad deal. Contact your insurance company for more details.
