Security is one of the top concerns that every homeowner has. Times have changed and the need for security has changed as well. Too often we only think of our security and the security of our family after something has happened to us, friends, family members, or neighbors. The need to properly equip our homes with alarms and security systems has never been greater. People take proactive approaches to most things in their life. However in our home security, we often fail to plan for the unexpected, the safety and security of our family and possessions.
Basically security systems are of two types - Monitored systems and Un-monitored systems. Monitored systems include 247 surveillance by the company itself which provided the security system. You get higher level of security and professional help with monitored systems. At the second phase of security systems are un-monitored security systems. Unmonitored systems do not have a monthly fee since you are doing the monitoring yourself. In case on unmonitored systems you rely on your neighbours for calling help in case the alarm is triggered, when you are out. Most popular types of home security equipment that you can add to your home or office include:
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.
