Security Alarm FAQs

Are home security systems effective?

The short answer is yes. Studies have shown that simply by having a security system, your home is much less likely to be targeted by burglars and thieves in the first place.

Are Wired or Wireless Home Security Systems Better?

It depends on what you need from a security system. Hardwired alarm systems have an edge on reliability, while wireless systems provide a more streamlined installation and can be used in places where wired systems can’t.

Should I have my Security System Professionally Installed?

Yes, absolutely! If there’s one home system you want installed correctly the first time, it’s your alarm system. Most security systems include wiring and sensors that need to be drilled into walls and positioned perfectly, or else the alarm system may falsely set off or fail to set off if an intruder enters.

Where is the best place to put a safe in my home?

A home safe used to secure jewelry should be placed in the master bedroom, bathroom, or closet. It's also a good idea to place the safe on a pedestal or reinforced shelf to bring it up closer to between your elbow and shoulder height for easier access.

What are some common Security System components I should include in my set up?

Having any kind of security system will give you peace of mind and increase the protection of your premises, however the following are good aspects to include in your design: motion sensors, indoor and outdoor CCTV cameras, glass break detectors, door and window sensors, garden signs and window stickers and smoke detectors.
