Unfortunately, crime rates continue to increase across the United States. What’s more, thieves have gotten bolder, walking right into people’s homes, taking whatever they please. There are even more cases of burglars doing this when the occupants of the home are still inside. One of the ways to combat this growing problem is to ensure that you have an active burglar alarm in your home. Studies show that thieves are more likely to avoid a home with a security system. What’s more, Burglar Alarms Systems can help save you and your family should a burglar be bold enough to break in when you’re at home.
An active burglar alarm is a simple deterrent. If someone opens a window or door while the alarm is active, and doesn’t key in the deactivation code, then the alarm triggers. If you have a monitored system, then the alarm company will either call you or speak to you directly through a speaker device. If you don’t give them the password to deactivate the alarm, then they will call the police and have them come to your home.
Unfortunately, not everyone activates their burglar alarm when they enter their home. Often, this is something that is done before leaving the house or going to bed. If you’re home and your home is invaded, there are options for you as well. Many Burglar Alarms Systems offer remote panic buttons that will allow you to trigger the alarm, even if your system isn’t activated. There are some systems that have buttons strategically placed around the home. Other systems include a discrete bracelet or necklace that has uses a wireless signal to silently activate the alarm and alert the company monitoring your system. Not only can this type of system save your life in a home invasion, but it could also be used if you were in an emergency medical situation and you couldn’t get to a phone.
One of the most important considerations that you need to make is whether or not to use a monitored system. Having an outside company call the fire or police department in case of an alarm can save lives, but it can be costly.
