Home Security Systems Augusta Ga
There are only a few worse feelings than coming back home and finding your house burglarized. You lock your windows and doors and switch on the lights, but that may not be enough to keep a burglar out.
Many of us these days are going beyond those old steps to stop a break-in. Householders have decided one of the best paths to protect their home and their families is with a home security system.
When Martha Kempf and her folks moved into their home ten years ago, it already had a home alarm system installed. After two her neighbors’ homes that did not have alarm systems installed were damaged into, she counted her blessings.
According to one study, houses without alarms systems are three times more likely to be broken into than those without.
Tom Cook of TC Security has lots of his company’s signs all though Michiana and he has installed thousands of protection systems in homes and businesses.
One reason many people wait is cost.
Security systems range anywhere from about $200 for a leased system to $400-$500 for buying a basic system. Highly complex systems can get up to $1,500 to $3,000.
Additionally, monthly monitoring fees can start at about $20 a month.
While the first costs could seem like a lot for a home security system, in the months and years yet to come, it might actually finish up saving you money.
Home security has evolved. You no longer need a normal telephone line in your house.
You do not need a phone line or a land line any more. There are many different options. We will be able to connect up to the Net, we have cellular technology, and also two way radio communicationswe have apps and everything that would indicate when your alarm is going off. You can connect that with cameras, like a latchkey situation for your kid when they come back home from college. There’s a video clip when they come in. There’s also alarm notification, texting and e-mail that we will be able to inform folks when their alarm is activated.
Home protection systems aren’t without their critics. There is about a 80 % fake alarm rate which, some argue, has led on to slower reply times from police.
So what can you do if response times by police are in the 5 to 10 minute range? Have an alarm system that blares loudly both inside and outside and also goes off within thirty seconds of a breach.
This is meant to frighten off any intruder before they make off with much or anything whatsoever.
One study shows the average loss for a home with an alarm is $2,000 less then one without because burglars have less time to wash out the house.
