‘Tis the season… to make sure your home and family are safe and fully protected. While the holidays are a time of good cheer, you also face a heightened risk for break-ins, theft, and winter-related issues like fire and carbon monoxide exposure. Don’t put a damper on your celebrations; with some preparation, you can make sure that you enjoy happy — and safe — holidays.
Peace of mind. This is one of the biggest benefits that a home security system can deliver. But rest assured, there are plenty more! From safeguarding your family and valuables from intruders and lowering homeowners insurance rates to protecting against fire and carbon monoxide (as monitored systems can do), you will reap the rewards.
Are you thinking about installing a system or upgrading your current solution? Knowing the basic components can help you make the best choice for your needs, your home, and your family.
People often think of fire alarms as simple mechanisms. You see a fire, you pull the trigger, the alarm sounds, and everyone evacuates, right? Yet this requires someone to see the fire in the first place. What if it's happening out of the way, in an area where no one's working at that moment? What kind of fire alert system or life safety system works more effectively?
Think about it this way: home security is always evolving. Burglars and robbers are also evolving. A home security system from 10 or 15 years ago was adequate when you purchased it, but might now it likely has technological and logistical gaps that leave your home vulnerable.
