Home alarm companies are in the business of protecting your valuables. Most home burglaries happen during the day, while many of us are at work. Typically, burglars live less than two miles from their victims, and usually break into homes between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Home alarm systems scare intruders away and alert the alarm company. They contact the home owner and, when necessary, alert the authorities.
Homes with security systems, such as those provided by Adt home security, are about three times less likely to be broken into than homes without security systems. Home alarm companies are held to high standards, and are reviewed often. ADT home alarms are consistently one of the highest rated in the home alarm system reviews.
Good home alarm companies offer alarm monitoring services. The home alarm systems are monitored seven days a week, 24 hours a day. When an alarm signals, someone from the alarm company knows immediately and can take action. Monitoring services can also be alerted if there is a fire, or if carbon monoxide is detected in the home.
Any home in any neighborhood could be broken into. The single family, detached type of homes are the ones that are targeted most often. During home robberies, some the most commonly stolen items are cash, jewelry, electronics and other items that are small and easy to sell.
