There are so many options to choose from in Chicago’s home security systems market. Some facts you might want to be aware of is that in Chicago, more than 300,000 crimes occur annually and that if you have a good home security system, you are almost 15 times less likely to have a break-in. Another plus is that your insurance company might very well give you a discount on your insurance premiums.
Adding video surveillance to your security system gives you that added piece of protection to ensure that you, your home, and your family are safe and secure. Not only will you be able to watch and see what happens both inside and outside your home, you can also provide proof with digital recordings. The best part is that you do not even have to be home to see since a system can allow you to view remotely through the wonders of the internet. When you add cameras that are small and not easily spotted, you can have the peace of mind knowing that your child or children are safe in a caretaker’s arms.
Alarm monitoring means that you are protected because there is someone monitoring your home 24 hours of the day, 365 days of the year. If there is a fire, a medical emergency or someone uninvited is in your home, the alarm company will be able to send you the required assistance. You do need to be aware that not all companies can monitor security systems from another manufacturer. The best companies are able to monitor the system you want or have to install, even if they were not the point of purchase. Alert Protective Services can provide all this and more to you and have built a stellar reputation in the field.
