A very funny fail today with a funny door sign that reads: "Sage: Door is unlocked. Robbers/rapists: Door is locked. I have a gun." This is a good picture but a terrible home security system, lol!
Lets get serious for a minute: People interested in security systems for homes should do some research online and check some different systems before deciding which one to buy. This is good practice not only for price comparison but to make sure you buy the right security system for your needs.
There are some basic security tips to help protect your home from the bad guys such as leaving your lights on when you are away to make the house look occupied; cancel your newspaper and magazine subscriptions or ask a friend to pick them up while you're on vacation; mute your telephone whar you're way, so even if its ringing this will not be noticed; always keep all house and garage doors locked when not in use; don't leave money or valuable objects around the house, and never on a table or in a place where other people can see them.
Unfortunately, even if you use these security tips your home is still vulnerable and unprotected, so the best solution to make sure you and your family are protected is investing in a monitored home security system, this can save you a lot of headaches and problems in the future. You can check ADT (a leading provider of electronic home security services) for information on equipment, security tips, pricing options, and to choose a good home security system for your house. If you prefer to be contacted by an alarm specialist to help you, the website has a form for that too.
