What makes for the perfect security system? Since everyone’s needs are different, the definition of perfect is unique to the individual’s needs, lifestyle, and location.
There are likely several questions running through your mind when you are researching for a new service provider. Which company is best? Does it matter if my system is professionally monitored? What comes with my system? Who offers the best home security systems in Virginia especially when it comes to wireless home security systems in Richmond?
These are all great questions. To help save time and ensure you get the best protection and value, here are a few items to consider when choosing your next security company.
1. Is it professionally monitored?
One of the first questions you should ask yourself when assessing different security systems is, is it professionally monitored? When an emergency strikes, your number one priority is to get out safely.
You may miss some of the alerts and notifications sent to you. Attain peace of mind knowing a trained professional is there 24/7 to alert and dispatch local authorities for help if a break-in or fire occurs.
2. Will it hold up against burglars?
Not all security systems are created the same. When choosing your security system, it’s important to make sure it can withstand the tactics of a burglar. Relieve worries with:
Crash and Smash Protection: It’s common practice for burglars to turn a security system offline by smashing the system’s panel. Patented Crash and Smash Protection, powered by Alarm.com, can recognize this tactic and will still send an emergency signal to your monitoring station.
Dedicated Cellular Connection: Check to see if your security panel is supported by a dedicated cellular connection instead of using your home’s WIFI or phone line. This will ensure your system still communicates in the event your phone line is cut or the power goes out.
3. What comes with my security system?
Security used to mean installing three door sensors and a motion detector to safeguard your home from the threat of an intrusion. Using smart home technology, today’s security extends beyond your home’s perimeter protecting you from much more than burglars.
Protect your home from threats like fire, carbon monoxide, and water leaks with proactive sensors that respond to impending dangers. Be alerted to unexpected activity taking place in your home such as doors to “no-no” rooms being opened.
