Amazingly, when a burglar sees a yard sign or door decal indicating that a home is protected by a monitored home security system, he or she will go elsewhere. There are few things as daunting for a potential robber as seeing that a house is protected, and for a homeowner, there are few better ways of protecting a home from dangers than home alarm systems.
The benefits of alarm systems really cannot be overstated. Residential alarm systems help to stave off robbers, but at the same time they can detect fires, carbon monoxide leaks, and other potential hazards which could put a family at risk. What many people don’t know is that the typical burglars live within two miles of their victims and often actually know their victims.
