In my opinion cell phone monitoring is the best type of monitoring. A landline can easily be disabled by a savvy burglar. The cell phone chip is located inside the control panel so in order for it to be disabled the intruder would need to be inside the home. By then the alarm would have already been triggered. The cell phone technology also allows complete remote control of your system while land line access is limited.
Monitored home security systems are the most advanced, and therefore a pricier option. Monitored home security systems include video surveillance, where cameras are connected to a central monitoring system. They serve as video door phone, and for identification and access control, but they can also be used as crime deterrence: their presence signifies that your home will not be an easy target. Just the sight of a video camera is enough to scare away potential burglars! They know that they are more likely to be identified when breaking into a home with a video surveillance, and the video material can be used as an evidence against them. Some types of monitored systems can also sound alarms and alert the police. The company will call your house and ask for a password, and if there is no answer, or the wrong password is given over the phone, they will call the police. When used to protect apartment complexes, they include live monitoring and a trained security guard.
Can having a security system lower my home owners insurance?
