Deterrence – Alarm Systems
Intruders target the most vulnerable homes and businesses, making it unlikely that they will challenge a Major Alarm security system. The Major Alarm, Inc yard sign and window sticker announce a powerful message and strong deterrent. When potential intruders see the Major Alarm, Inc yard sign or window stickers, they know the home or business is well protected and are likely to move on to an easier target.
A Major Alarm, Inc system helps protect your home when you’re not there, and helps protect you and your family when you are. By deterring intruders, or sounding an alarm to alert you of their presence, the system gives you an opportunity to react without having to confront the intruder.
Major Alarm, Inc’s monitored smoke detectors detect and alert you and the fire department to a smoldering fire in its early stages, whether you are at home or away.
Should an intruder choose to challenge a Major Alarm, Inc security system, a siren alerts homeowners to danger. The intruder will recognize the need to flee or risk being caught. This leaves very little opportunity for theft.
Is a Security system right for you?
Each year, about 1 in 50 U.S. homes gets broken into. Although the incidence of burglaries is fairly low, over time, the odds can turn against you. And given the financial, physical and psychological damage that can result from a burglary, it makes sense to do what you can to become more secure.
On the one hand, having a home security system will reduce the chances that your house will be burglarized, but on the other hand, the price of the systems and monitoring costs can be expensive, so hard to use that residents turn them off anyway, and lead to false alarms that unnecessarily burden police and fire departments.
