A security alarm is a system designed to detect intrusion –unauthorized entry –into a building or area. Security alarms are used in residential, commercial, industrial, and military properties for protection against burglary (theft) or property damage, as well as personal protection against intruders.
Advantages of an Alarm System
The mere fact that an alarm system exists is often a sufficient deterrent to discourage a burglar even before he tries to force an entry.
Knowing you and your property are secure increases peace of mind. Most insurance companies give a reduction on homeowner’s insurance when an alarm system has been installed.
