Home alarms have become not just for the rick. They are now a way of life. It still amazes me how quickly things become part of our society that we just never expected. Home alarm systems are a great example of this. When I was young (not that I am old now!) but anyway, when I was in Jr. High my parents got their first home alarm. It was definitely not fancy by any stretch but we were the interesting family on the block for a while. Then it seemsed like everyone else started to get them rather quickly.
Now it seems like very house has to have an alarm system of some sort, or you are just asking to be robbed. One in Six houses will be affected by something that the alarm systems watch for in the next 5 years. That is pretty scary. Being a single, fun loving woman I sometimes wonder what would happen to me if someone broke in. My first thought follows what would they take? Could I replace it? Then I wonder even worse, what if I was asleep in the house when they came?
Door alarms and window alarms let off a faint ding when they are opened with some settings but I sleep like a rock, that little ding won’t wake me up. But now they have all these different settings so it will sound a full on alarm if someone opens my window or door in the middle of the night!
The other advantage is that if the alarm is triggered it automatically call the home monitoring group so I get help called without having to find the phone and dial 911. Overall having the alarm just makes me feel more comfortable which in turn gives me a better night’s sleep and we all know a woman needs her beauty rest!
