Kaylee Wright home security, 2018-07-20 13:57:01. 1. Do I really need security doors for my home? Whether or not to buy a security door for your home is a personal decision. But the unfortunate fact is that burglaries happen, even in safe neighborhoods, and high security doors make it less likely that you'll be victim of that type of crime. Not only does a high-quality security door help keep intruders out, it also gives off the impression that your home is well protected, making it less likely that you'll be targeted by burglars in the first place.

They are a necessary part of your home security system but they must be installed properly and they do require more maintenance than door and window contacts. You must take care to not install the detector too close to moveable objects such as balloons, blinds, curtains. Take care to not mount the motion detector too close to a furnace or vent. You should also clean the exterior of the lens to keep cob webs and dust from forming. If you are experiencing false alarms the device may need to be replaced, adjusted or relocated.

Skyler Guy home security, 2018-07-20 09:41:53. 5. What else can I do to keep my home secure? A secure front entry door is an important part of home security. But it's not the only thing you need. Don't forget to secure sliding glass patio doors and lower-floor windows, since these can be easy points of entry for criminals. Gates and fences can provide an additional layer of protection, as can security cameras and guard dogs. Being alert and aware is also critical (if you notice something suspicious, trust your instincts and alert the proper authorities).
Azalea Knight home security, 2018-07-19 11:53:27. In the old days if you wanted your home security system to be monitored you were required to have a phone line. This was never an issue because most everyone had a phone installed in their home. With the addition of cell phones to everyone's life many people no longer have a home phone line. If you want to have your home monitored then you must select to get a phone line or you can use cellular technology. This does not mean that you need a cell phone. The control panel has a GSM device that uses cell phone towers to communicate to the central station instead of the traditional phone line. The cost of this service is built into your monthly monitoring fee. You do not have access to use the cellular device. It is dedicated to the alarm system. If you do not currently have a phone line you must consider the additional cost of adding one and paying for the monthly service. Your monitoring service will range from $24.99 to $65.00 per month depending on the alarm company and the features that you are using. If you choose to use a phone line you are adding an additional $20.00 per month.

If the system goes into alarm and needs to contact the central station the phone line is automatically disconnected from the house lines and at that point is dedicated to the sole use of the alarm system. Once the transmission is complete the line is returned for normal operation.
Eileen Meyer home security, 2018-07-19 13:53:17. - That, an effective home security system (but one from a reputable home security company) makes a home 3 times LESS LIKELY to be burglarized, according to a National Burglar and Fire Association study (2004). Additionally, however, the 2009 study by Rutgers University, first cited above, found that though having a residential burglary alarm system in a home does, in deed, decrease crime by as much as 30-40 percent, it does so, though, not just on the property only that has the alarm system, but in the ENTIRE surrounding area.

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!
