Why you Need a Monitored Alarm System
According to the FBI, a burglary occurs every 15 minutes. And beleive it or not, most home burglaries happen during the day while homeowners are away at work.
A recent survey showed that 81% of residential burglaries occur through the first floor. With 34% entering through the front door, 23% through a window, 22% through the back door, 9% through the garage and the rest through second floor windows and storage areas.
According to the False Alarm Reduction Association, 90 percent of police believe home security alarms deter burglar attempts.
Monitored alarm systems don’t just protect you from intrusion. Monitored smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors can be installed and programmed to notify our central monitoring station in the event of a fire or poisonous gas.
According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), fire departments respond to a fire somewhere in the US every 20 seconds.
Liberty Bell Alarm & Home Theater has been providing intrusion and fire protection for over 25 years and can provide you with a free home evaluation.
