Shopping for Home Alarm Services? Do These 5 Things First!
If you want to get the very best home alarm services -- and wind up with the very best protection possible -- you've got to do these basic things before you commit to one particular system:
Look at the prices carefully
When it comes to home alarm services, paying more doesn’t necessarily guarantee a better finished product. Unfortunately, some services cost a fortune, but don't provide anything better than what the affordable options do. So, be sure to remember that prices can vary -- and vary wildly -- before you agree to anything!
Get up to speed on the technology
It's impossible to pick between different home alarm services if you don't know how they work! You need to know that alarm systems can either be hard-wired or wireless. You also need to know that your system will have a bunch of sensors that connect to your doors and windows -- and that those sensors may be programmed to alert you when glass is broken.
Those are the basics. Beyond that, you need to know that some home alarm services come with motion detectors that cover the interior of your home. Some systems can also automate your home -- like, for example, setting the temperature to go up and down at certain times. You may even get a system with remote access, that allows you to turn the alarm on and off with your smartphone.
Learn the truth about your neighborhood
Before you sit down with an alarm salesman, you need to get some crime statistics on your neighborhood. (Not sure where to get them? Just ask your local police department!) That way, you won't be fazed if a salesman tries to scare you with tales of how dangerous your neighborhood is.
Figure out how your kids and pets will fit into the mix
Having active kids and pets can affect the home alarm service that's right for you. For example, if your kids are going to be responsible for setting the alarm before the go to school in the morning, you need to make sure that it's easy to do. Or, if Fido loves to get up and have a snack in the middle of the night, you need to make sure that he won't set off your motion detectors.
Remember to keep your common sense
Even the best home alarm services can't protect you if you don’t take care of the "little things". For example, if you leave your doors unlocked or leave a bunch of newspapers sitting in the driveway when you're out of town, your home is going to be a target for intruders. So, don't assume that an alarm system is the end-all-be-all. You still need to use your common sense!
