These days, advertisements for burglar alarm systems are everywhere, and chances are that virtually everyone knows the name of brinks home security, Guardian, and adt home security. These companies started up by offering corporations and businesses various types of alarm systems, but soon found a wide open market for residential alarm systems, as well. First Defense Locksmith wants to make that same impression on you with our locksmith services.

More people these days are turning to a burglar alarm system to protect themselves, their family, and their belongings. The right alarm system, coupled with some good spotlights and common sense modifications to your property can go a long way toward scaring off any would-be intruders. When a thief sees the keypad of the burglar alarm system, he’s more likely to move to the next target. Even if you have some nice things inside your home, why risk it when someone down the street or a few blocks over has the same home electronics that you do but without any type of burglar alarm system protecting it?

If you personally are looking into burglar alarm systems, what are some things you should be keeping in mind for your selection? How do you know which one is the best for you, and what features you need versus which ones are just a waste of money? Obviously the answer will be different for everyone. Let’s take a closer look at how burglar alarm systems operate and what they offer, and then maybe you can make the best decision for you and your family.

First of all, really think about your own security needs and why you’re contemplating these burglar alarm systems. Do you have reason to suspect that someone is stealing from you on a regular basis, or have you already been the victim of vandalism? Do you just want something basic that will deter a would-be burglar or thief? Or do you have children and family members that are home during the day and that may need assistance at the touch of a button? By really assessing the things you need as a family, you can be better able to pick and choose through the available burglar alarm systems that are out there, and decide which features are best.

If you have reason to suspect that someone is stealing from you, perhaps a housekeeper or contractor or neighbor, you would choose the burglar alarm systems that include closed circuit cameras so that you can catch this person in the act. You might also consider this if you suspect abuse on the part of your child’s babysitter or the person that takes care of an elderly relative in your home. These types of burglar alarm systems are hooked up through a wire or send a wireless signal to a VCR or DVR, and this way you have a videotape or DVD that you can present to the police or in court.

But there is another reason why many neglect using it, and that’s because they’re afraid of setting it off accidentally. Like the smoke detector that sounds just because you’re cooking bacon, homeowners are afraid of doing something wrong or negligent and causing the burglar alarm system to sound for no reason. They fear the embarrassment that would cause with neighbors and police.

A burglar alarm system is much like a seatbelt in the car. It will only protect you if you use it. While false alarms or user error does sometimes happen, it’s usually very rare. So don’t let fear keep you from using your own burglar alarm system.
