Home security systems are not just for high-end homes and high-income buyers. Today, improved technology and competitive pricing have made systems more affordable. There is a system for everyone.
Besides notifying the monitoring center of a potential break-in, the systems can include features such as monitored fire protection, carbon monoxide detection, water penetration and air conditioner unit tampering alarms.

Home video systems allow users to monitor their home from a remote location. Users can make sure their kids are fine and keep an eye on their homes.

It's no longer necessary to have a landline telephone to ensure a system operates without fail, and it's not necessary to have an Internet connection.

While statistics show a home without an alarm system is more likely to be burglarized, the added benefits of fire protection and other services are immeasurable. Most insurance companies offer a discount on your homeowner's insurance premium when you have a monitored home alarm system.

You will want a reputable alarm system provider to visit your home and recommend how best to protect it. The Electronic Security Association (ESA) advises consumers what to look for in a reputable alarm company.

The vast majority of security salespeople are honest, hardworking and abide by the ESA Code of Ethics. Regrettably a small number of dishonest individuals can negatively influence public opinion about door-to-door sales," said Merlin Guilbeau, ESA Executive Director.

This time of year, consumer agencies such as the Better Business Bureau and state regulators report an uptick in the number of complaints nationwide concerning improper door-to-door sales practices," said Guilbeau. "Unethical salespeople put a black eye on the entire industry by taking advantage of consumers."
Before buying any security system, ESA and consumer agencies urge consumers to:
Avoid any offer that sounds too good to be true or offers anything free, claims to provide upgrades or has a time limit.

Ask for a local telephone number to contact the security company to ensure that the number is legitimate.

Contact local law enforcement if you feel uncomfortable in any way.

Always contact your current alarm company before signing any new contract so that you understand the status of your current contract.
