Alarm Home System

OK it is official, the world has gone mad. Did you know that in the next six years, 1 in 5 homes will fall victim to robbery, fire, or carbon monoxide poisoning? That number is awfully high! And on top of that, the economy has taken a massive downturn as we know so personally I think these numbers will be higher. The need for home alarms is on the rise.

We are all inundated with the need for security for our identity, but what about home security? Home alarms started quite a while ago, ADT is the most known but by far not the only company providing home alarm systems anymore. The alarm system home versions are also becoming more and more advanced. When I was growing up we had door alarms and window alarms. (This made sneaking out virtually impossible as well as protecting us at night, I remember that ding well!)

Now the standard house alarm has not only the door and windows, but also motion detectors, home security camera systems, and home video security. The uses for the alarm home system has changed as well. It is not enough to just know that something happened, you must be able to defend it in courts. This can range from the neighbor’s dog using the restroom on your yard and destroying your sod that cost thousands, or it could mean having a picture of the person who broke into your home. Another use for the home security surveillance a little closer to home is that it is being used as a life alert alternative. They are providing “panic buttons” that allow you to call for help immediately if you ever need it.

Personally I like how easy arming the system has gotten. With a simple press of the remote control you arm the system. Just like your car. I am not big on setting the keypad when I leave but I can remember to click the lock button on my alarm.

House Security

Security is becoming more and more important in today’s economy. Home alarms are quickly becoming a necessity not just a luxury. But now it seems with so many home alarm systems that there is an added benefit to getting one of these burglar systems. Simply put with all the competition there is a greater place for you to get a great deal. The three top companies are ADT, Brinks home security, and Monitronics. All of these have 3 year contracts but they are all competing for your business. So how does this help you? Lets look 🙂

At one time the only thing offered were door alarms and window alarms, now there are home security cameras, alarm alert calling you when the alarm goes off, motion detectors, home video security, and even a new life alert alternative. The alarm home system is getting more high tech every day! You can even set it off with a remote control instead of using the keypad.

So how do all these things help you? Simple, use their competition against them. If you have an alarm now you can change companies and save $5-10 and sometimes more per month, without changing anything. Or you can upgrade your service and get video or motion detectors where you didn’t have them before. Did you know that the keypads are interchangeable? This means if you like what you have now, you can get cheaper rates by simply switching out the keypad. Service is the same throughout and sometimes even go to the same call centers, the only difference you will see is a lower bill. Why? Because these other companies want your next contract.

We found out when we lowered our bill by $10 per month. I like having an extra $120 and my husband likes that I have a panic button that I can use if there is ever a problem where help will be called immediately.
