Burglaries and home invasions can happen at any time. However statistics show us:
A good quality alarm system is more than a brand name. There are basically two types of systems available. These are wired and wireless. The wired system requires running wire throughout your home from the control panel to every home security device. The wireless security system operates with the use of transmitters and batteries that communicate to the control panel. The wireless system is a favorite with DIY Installers and professional installers alike. There are cases when the wired system is the clear choice but that is usually in more complex installations.
Your alarm system has 4 modes of operation. They are armed in Away, Armed in Stay, and disarmed and there is a 24 hour mode. The armed in away mode means that you have armed your system and you have left your home. The armed in stay mode your system is armed and you have stayed home. In this mode the interior devices are disabled so you do not set the system off. In the disarmed mode the only devices that will work are the ones that are designated as 24 hour devices. This normally applies to smoke detectors. Glass break sensors and medical pendants. Regardless of the mode of operation if an alarm is triggered the system will sound the audible device and also send a signal to the central station is you are monitored. The central station personnel will call you to confirm the alarm. If you are not at home they will dispatch the appropriate authorities.
