Home alarm systems really work
While crime in general appears to be in decline, there are still thousands of reports each year of breaking and entering in Calgary alone. In 2013, according to the Calgary Police Service’s annual report, there were 5621 cases of Breaking and Entering crimes. In 2016, in the first two quarters alone there were a total of 4272 Breaking and Entering offences, 50 more than at the same date in 2015.
If you’ve been wondering whether to invest in an alarm system, you should consider that a good home security system is more than just an alarm, and is not just about protecting your valuables; it’s being proactive about preventing crime, and providing your family with the peace of mind that only comes from feeling completely safe.
We imagine the role of a security system to be that of an alarm, blearing away in the night, waking us to the presence of burglars. However, the most important role of the alarm system is that of deterrence. For the most part, criminals looking to commit burglaries are no more interested in running into you than you are of running into them. In fact, most break-ins occur during the day, while the house is empty. An empty house makes for an inviting target, but most burglars will give a house equipped with a security system a wide berth. The possibility of an alarm going off or the thought of a security system putting in a warning to the local police service is often enough to stop would-be thieves in their tracks.
Peace of mind
It’s not just the idea of protecting your valuables-though obviously this is important as well. But the peace of mind that comes with knowing your home and family is protected by a state-of-the-art security system cannot be overstated. Not only will the system help prevent a crime before it even happens, but the system can also play a role in protecting you from fires and dangerous carbon monoxide poisoning. You can also remain confident that your house is secure while you’re at work, or away on vacation, as many systems now allow you to check in on things remotely, via a computer or your phone.
