Why have an alarm system
Electronic alarm systems are used to detect intruders and protect you, your family, and your property. They are also proven deterrents for break-ins:
Premises with security systems are four times less likely to be burglarized than those that are not. When an alarmed premise is burglarized, property losses are dramatically lower, mainly because intruders know they have less time to spend inside the premise.
According to the Electronic Security Association, "In a [U.S.] industry survey of 1,000 public safety officials, 85 per cent of police chiefs said security systems decrease the likelihood a home will be burglarized, and almost 90 per cent felt security systems increased their chances of apprehending burglars."
However, today's alarms do much more than just protect your home against break and enters. They can also be integrated with a number of life safety devices, such as smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, and medical alert alarms to help protect your loved ones and provide increased peace of mind.
