Security Systems

by | Tips & Tricks

Homeowners who have installed burglar alarm systems statistically stand a better chance of avoiding invasion than those without protection. Approximately 1 out of every 6 American families has an alarm system, and according to the National Burglar & Fire Alarm Association, the number of security-protected residences is rising.

Don't assume burglaries only happen in cities. Homes in the country can also become targets in part because of their secluded settings.

Types of security systems vary, with many requiring a monthly fee for an alarm monitoring service. In addition, the equipment and installation costs may vary by company, so you can save by comparison shopping.

Standard components in most home security packages consist of a master control panel, the control keypad, sensor pads for doors and windows and a motion sensor device. Some systems are connected to an off-site alarm monitoring service, while others have in-home alarms.
