SafeTech Alarm Systems has been protecting homes and businesses for over 20 years. Our loss prevention experts have learned how to successfully combine different security technologies together to create security systems that successfully protect both people and property.
Our team recently put together a Squidoo lens filled with tips on how you can prevent your home or business from being burlarized.
It features some excellent suggestions that will definitely help you stay safe!
Home alarm systems are more than just loud sirens that draw attention to crimes. Yes, a good alarm system will let neighbours and bystanders know that a break-in is occuring, but that’s not all!
Home alarm systems deter crime. There are many cases where several unprotected homes on a street are hit by burglars while homes on the same street with alarm systems are left untouched.
Installing a home alarm system won’t just protect you if your home is broken into, it can also prevent a break in from ever happening at all.
But that’s not all! There are many ways to extend the capabilities of your home alarm system. Adding improvements to your system will improve its functionality and keep you safe and secure.
An excellent way to further safeguard to your home is by adding fire protection. An even better way to stay safe is by adding 24 hour fire monitoring. With this service your home will be protected at all times, whether you are there or not. You could be on vacation or asleep and authorities can still be contacted and dispatched to your emergency.
Carbon monoxide is a deadly, colourless, odourless gas. Your home alarm system can also be monitored to protect you from this silent killer.
Adding security cameras to your home is another excellent way to improve your system. The security cameras will function to prevent and deter crime, but they will also have many other benefits.
Surveillance cameras are able to record the actions of children, babysitters, employees, cleaning staff and anyone else in your home. You can use the cameras to monitor behaviour and ensure that everyone is safe and secure at all times.
There are many functions to home alarm systems beyond drawing attention to crimes in progress.
