- That, according to a Temple University study headed by Professor Simon Hakim, Director of the university's Center for Competitive Government, a monitored alarm system makes a home three times less likely to be burglarized versus a home without an alarm. Businesses without alarm systems are 4.5 times more likely to be burglarized than the ones with electronic security system. And, finally, losses due to burglary average $400 less in residences without alarm security systems.
- According to a Board Resolution passed by the International Association of Chiefs of Police in 1994, alarm systems, providing, though, they are professionally installed and monitored, are useful instruments to deter crime and provide peace of mind for both residential users and business owners. (International Association of Chiefs of Police, Alexandria, Va.).
* Contracts - always remember to read the fine print. Many security companies will slap you with a contract when installing the home security system for you. Check the period of the contract and the terms before signing anything. Also confirm if the contract covers things such as moving the system to your new home in case you need to move. Contracts are binding legal documents and you will want to be on the safe side of the fence when things go unexpectedly wrong!
