Is one of your biggest fears being startled awake at night by an intruder in your home?
It’s only natural to be concerned about your safety any time you’re vulnerable. Unfortunately, you are most vulnerable when you’re sleeping, especially if you live alone.
You can get the peace of mind you need to sleep restfully by installing a home security system with around-the-clock monitoring. Home security lets you rest comfortably knowing that an alarm will wake you up at the first sign of trouble. If your home is being remotely monitored by a company like Freedom Alarm & Security, alert monitoring center personnel can quickly assess the situation and notify the police.
Home Security Equipment
The first step in using home security for a better night’s sleep is to install a reputable system with top-of-the-line equipment. Entry-level systems begin with sensors installed on first-floor windows and doors. This is a good place to start, since crime statistics clearly show that first-floor doors and windows are the most common entry points for criminals.
Additional equipment can be installed to create a customized security system suitable for any circumstance. For example, additional sensors can be installed on basement windows, garage doors, and even second-floor windows that might be accessible by way of a tree or outbuilding. Motion detectors can be placed in strategic locations throughout the home in case an intruder is not deterred by the alarm.
Lastly, video surveillance cameras are an excellent tool for deterring intruders. When criminals see exterior cameras, they usually understand that their actions are being monitored and recorded. Those recordings can be used in court as evidence to convict. Such risks are usually enough to send a criminal in the other direction.
Benefits of Home Monitoring
It is possible to install a home security system that works independently of home monitoring. However, home monitoring is very affordable and well worth the investment. Indeed, home monitoring is like having an extra set of eyes and ears keeping watch over your property night and day.
In the event of a home intrusion, an alarm system will make plenty of noise, but do nothing to summon help. A system connected to a remote monitoring center sends an alert to that center when the alarm is triggered. Trained security personnel can immediately communicate the homeowner to find out what’s going on, and contact the police if necessary for the fastest possible response time.
A home security system with monitoring is an ideal option for individuals who want to do everything they can to ensure personal safety. For those who live alone, it is indispensable. We invite anyone who lives alone to contact Freedom & Security for more information about equipment and monitoring packages.
Just about anyone can benefit from a home security system with monitoring, including:
- Seniors who live alone.
- Couples just starting out in a new home.
- Growing families with small children.
- Single professionals who spend a lot of time away.
Just about everyone looking to sleep better at night can benefit from a home security system. If you haven’t installed one yet, contact Freedom Alarm & Security today for more information.
