Why Do I Need an Alarm System?

Posted on: April 25th, 2011 by safeandsound No Comments

When considering purchasing a home alarm system, many people think only of the cost involved in installing and maintaining the system. However, there are many more issues to consider.

As you are weighing the pros and cons of purchasing a residential alarm system, remember to think about people living in and around your home that will benefit from such a purchase. For example, do you have an elderly person who lives with you? If so, do you have to leave that person unattended at any time? If the answer is “yes,” a home alarm system is almost a necessity. As people age, they often fall and injure themselves. If these injuries prevent mobility, how long will the person be incapacitated before you arrive home from work or running errands? An integral part of many alarm systems is a feature that is worn by inhabitants of the home. If there is ever an emergency and the person in crisis is unable to get to the phone, he or she can use this device to contact the operator of the alarm system. In turn, the operator of the home alarm system notifies the appropriate authorities and help will be on the way shortly.

Another age group that benefits from a residential alarm system is the teenage set. People tend to think of an alarm system as a way to keep people out. However, it can also be used as a means of keeping people in! If you have a teenager that enjoys the “nightlife,” and often wants to resume socializing after coming in at curfew, a home alarm system may help solve the problem. If the teenager tries to sneak out of the house and the alarm is set, you will be notified immediately and can handle the situation at once rather than when you discover the offence the next morning.

A third set of people who benefit from a home alarm system is the stay-at-home mom. We have all heard the horror stories of women going into the yard to garden, only to find an intruder in the home when they go back inside. With a home alarm system, the young mother can set the home alarm system and have peace of mind knowing that no one will enter the home without her knowledge. Along those same lines, if a mother has put her children down for a nap and that goes outside to do some yard work. She will be at peace knowing that if someone attempts to enter her home, the home alarm system will notify her and she will be able to keep her child safe.

In closing, home alarm systems benefit more than just one group of people in the home. While it is true that home alarm systems keep out intruders in the middle of the night, they can be used for so much more.
Do you and your family a favor and seriously consider purchasing a residential alarm system. You’ll rest easier tonight and always if you do.
