The Security Process
Most reputable home security system companies will meet with you at
your home to better understand your security needs. These
representatives will identify common points of entry in your home as
well as point out any specific locations that may be particularly
vulnerable to intrusion.
When trying to select the best security system for you, it is
important to ask good questions. Things you may want to consider asking
company representatives include: Does this system come with 24-hour
monitoring assistance? Is there a warranty included? Will any
maintenance need to be done? Is the alarm attached to an additional
power source, such as a battery, in case of a power outage? Is the
volume of the alarm loud enough for neighbors to hear? Is there a grace
period after setting off the alarm to allow for it to be turned off in
case of accidental activation?
