How to Review Your Home Security Alarm System


When was the last time you took a good look at your home security alarm?

Remember back when you had your home security system installed? I’m sure you had at least one discussion with your home security system representative about protection details like window openings, door openings, door locks, glass protection, pets, access to your home, crime in your area, and lots of other issues.

From that information, your home security company representative designed a system to protect your home and family. And if you are like most people, you haven’t thought much about it since.

It’s a good idea to review your home security plan and home security system. Half of all homeowners have major renovation projects planned in the next two years. Lifestyles change, crime trends change and law enforcement response to alarm conditions change.
