You should know that a professionally installed home security system is crucial for keeping your loved ones and possessions safe. Even if you think you live in a safe or even gated community, that doesn't mean that something bad couldn't occur. According to the FBI, a home burglary occurs every 15.4 seconds in the U.S.Statistics show that homes without security systems are up to 300% more likely to be broken into. Most residential burglaries occur on weekdays, between 10-11 a.m. and 1-3 p.m, when most people are away at work or school(COPS, U.S Department of Justice).
Crime has become an inescapable reality in our lives. In fact, here in Sarasota and Manatee Counties, homes and businesses are burglarized at twice the national median rate (NeighborhoodScout.com). As a result of this increased demand, many new inexperienced security companies have entered the market. Unfortunately, most companies are more interested in “reselling” their long-term contracts with inadequate inferior systems, rather than making sure the people and property they monitor will actually be protected. We know this because approximately 40% of our new customers come to us from such companies. We hope that by educating potential customers earlier in the evaluation process, we can better assist them in making a more informed decision.
