Breaking and entering is one of the most common crimes reported in residential areas. Not only will an alarm help prevent your property and possessions from being damaged/stolen, burglar alarms also protect you from potential harm to you and your family.
Today’s home security system is so much more than an alarm and some sensors. New technology gives homeowners the ability to monitor surveillance cameras and sensors remotely through a web portal or mobile app. It also gives users the ability to arm and disarm their alarm system from afar, should the need arise. Because so many homes are now incorporating smart technology, many of these devices such as door locks, lights, garage doors and appliances, can also be accessed remotely using an all-in-one, simple to use platform.
Here are a few reasons why you should install an intrusion alarm in your home or business:
