  • Burglars can enter your home in more ways than one. They can enter from the main gate as well as windows.
  • You need to ensure that each of access point is covered with an alarm system.

Installing the Keypad next to the Door or a Window

  • The keypad should be installed away from the door and the windows to avoid the burglars from deactivating them.
  • It should not be visible from the outside or through the windows as well.

Choosing a Company based on One Phone Call

  • When choosing a home alarm company, you need to do your research about the company.

Blocking the Alarm Detectors

  • Often the motion detectors are not installed properly and can fail to work when needed.
