 Tips for Buying a Home Security Alarm System

 Home alarm systems may seem quite straightforward, but they’re not.  Having a home security and fire alarm installed in your home will help to protect you and your family and is one of the best decisions a family can make. Our families are our most prized possessions. We want to protect that possession so that our families are safe and secure. Here are some important considerations when having a home alarm systems installed. 

 You should never make any kind of commitment to a home alarm company that has not visited your home and inspected your property. Remember to ask the home security company for references from other satisfied customers in your area. Find out how long they have been in business and what sort training or expertise their staff has been involved with. For example, ask if they have taken any home alarm technician training programs or courses. 

Having your home alarm system tied into a Central Monitoring Station is essential. It is imperative that your home alarm system is tied into a UL Approved Central Station to monitor the alarm system. This guarantees that people are on duty 24 hours a day,  7 days a week; as well as having redundant operators-backup communications systems; and backup redundant emergency power systems (generators as well as uninterruptable power supplies-UPS). Some home alarm companies will subcontract their alarm monitoring to a third party. If you do not have a contract with this third party, your monitoring service may be less than sub-par should you ever experience a problem. Ask what the duration of the monitoring contract is, and most importantly, how much does the monitoring cost. Find out exactly what the home alarm company's policy is when an alarm is detected. Do they phone the residence first when an alarm sounds, or do they call the police? Also find out what fines may be incurred if you do have a false alarm.
