"home” as "the place (such as a house or apartment) where a person lives.” If
you are like most people, your home is so much more than the four walls and
roof where you return after a hard day’s work. Your home is your sanctuary. It
is where everything that matters to you is. Your spouse, children, pets and
possessions reside there, and all those things are well worth protecting.
Whether you are home or away,
you want to know that the things you value the most are being cared for. There
are few better ways to ensure your property and loved ones are protected than
by having a professionally-installed home security
- Intrusion - When most people think home security,
the first thing that jumps to mind is "burglary
alarm.” Magnetic contacts on doors or windows, motion sensors and
glass break detectors work in conjunction to notify the monitoring station
that there is an unlawful intruder. If you are away, you can trust that
the authorities have been contacted and will meet you there to help assess
what damage has been done. If the unthinkable happens and you are home
when an intrusion occurs, you do not have to worry about trying to reach
out for help, yourself. The monitoring station has you covered 24/7,
While intrusion detection is
an important component, it is not the only function of a monitored home security
system. In fact, fire and life
safety devices are essential to having a well-protected home. They work
around the clock, whether your system is armed or not.
- Monitored Smokes - From cooking fires to
electrical malfunctions, there are many potential causes for residential
fires. They can happen quickly and without warning. Moreover, statistics
from the National Fire Protection Agency and the U.S. Fire Administration
show that 50% of all fatal fires occur between the hours of 11:00 p.m. and
7:00 a.m. A home security system with monitored smoke and heat detection
devices means that, no matter the cause or the hour, someone is getting
help to you quickly.
- Monitored CO Detection - The Centers for Disease
Control describes carbon monoxide as "an odorless, colorless gas,
which can cause sudden illness and death” and which "is produced any time
a fossil fuel is burned.” Humans cannot detect it. A disturbing fact, when
you consider that many household items, including furnaces, portable
generators and charcoal grills produce this poison gas. The C.D.C.
recommends the installation of carbon monoxide
detectors near every sleeping area in your home. Monitored detectors
would offer an extra level of protection for your family.
- Water Detection - While a flooded basement,
laundry room or water closet is hardly a life-threatening event, water
damage accounts for 28% of the most frequent causes of homeowners’
insurance claims. A monitored water
detection system is designed to alert you of the presence of moisture
before any major damage can occur.Like life safety devices, they are
monitored 24/7, and can be essential to helping you prevent the
considerable hassle and expense of dealing with the result of a leaking or
burst pipe in your home.
Detection of intruders, fire
and other emergency situations can give you the peace of mind you want and
deserve when it comes to your home and the people you care for the most; but
these are just a few benefits to having a monitored home security system
