security service for home

Main Entry Door LightingThe lighting that is around the doors of your home is one of the most important parts of your home security plans. Most burglars like to target entry doors before anything else, they offer easy entry and exit routes if not adequately protected. To improve the security of your doors consider any lighting at all to be better than no lighting. If a burglar sees lights illuminating the door areas the chances are he will select another home to visit, lighting increases his chances of being observed. If the lights are off and the door area is in the shadows the burglar will more than likely enact his plans. Front Garden and Driveway Motion DetectorsMotion activated lights can make your front garden a problem area for a potential burglar removing their ability to approach your home unseen. If you are planning to use motion detectors in the front garden, you should make sure that you have tested the installation locations carefully. You will irritate neighbours and lessen the surprise lighting effect if people walking by, or children playing in the street, frequently trigger the sensors. Rear Garden ProtectionFor the exterior of your home external lighting is definitely a good investment. The rear of the house is not seen by passing traffic affording a burglar more time to try to gain entry to your home. If you have a secluded rear garden, you should always make sure that you use motion detected lights.

The service is really focused on providing the monitoring for you, which comes in relatively cheap in industry terms at $29 per month, after hardware costs. The one caveat is to expect to sign a three year contract, with early exit penalties coming into play 30 days after purchase. ADT is an established security company that offers equipment tied to a subscription based monitoring service, most of which will require professional installation that the company can provide. Like Brinks, ADT pushes for a three year initial contract, which afterwards is renewed monthly, but unlike all the other firms listed it's not very transparent about pricing. While other companies are happy to offer a single fee per product/package, ADT pushes on custom sales for custom packages, which means it’s difficult to make a direct price comparison. Frontpoint Security sells itself on ease of use, with a DIY home surveillance and security kit based on free standing sensors that don't require any wall mounting, drilling, wires, etc.

We do this by extensively researching user reviews at retailers such as Amazon, Best Buy, Home Depot and Lowe's. When we test, we borrow some of the DIY security systems from their manufacturers and buy others. Although we may reach out for technical support or for clarification on a particular feature, the companies have no input on our testing practices and we don’t share our results or rankings with them before publishing our reviews. As we researched this topic and security systems in general, we reached out to Jamie Vos, vice president of the Electronic Security Association ESA for his thoughts on DIY systems. He emphasized professional monitoring for security systems: “If you receive a text alert, you may not be in a condition to respond and you may not hear an alarm. At that point, you have lost valuable response time, whereas a professional monitoring station can automatically alert first responders.
