False alarm activations are more than just an annoyance, if they occur regularly they can cost you a lot of money in false alarm call-out fees. Even worse, if your home security system regularly triggers false alarms, you may be hesitant about using it and this could leave your home vulnerable to intruders.
A motion sensitive security system and a cat or dog might sound like a recipe for disaster but these days, it’s more than possible for your pet and your security system to co-exist peacefully. In fact, many pet owners find that having a home security system lets them enjoy greater peace of mind during the day when they are away from their furry family member.
It’s crucial to think about practical considerations when deciding on a home security system, but it’s also important that whatever security system you get is compatible with your lifestyle. For example, families with a stay at home parent will have very different security needs than singles who travel most of the time for work. Whatever your lifestyle, your security system should reflect this.
If you are unfortunate enough to be a victim of burglary, at home or at your place of work, you’ll know how violated and angry you feel. Unfortunately, being burgled once often sets you up for a repeat experience as thieves may target homes and workplaces where they were previously successful and where items stolen may have been replaced with new ones.
