Home security for Portland residents
A security system is a real deterrent to home burglaries, particularly a monitored home security system. This type of system can alert the security company if the alarm is activated, sending both you and the company an alert. A security guard can also be sent to your home if you are not there to check on the alarm.
Smoke and fire detection can also be a part of any home security package. The alarm monitoring system can detect and set off an alarm quickly, often before you are aware of any electrical issue or cooking mishap that may have started a potentially disastrous fire in your home.
Things to consider when choosing the level and type of security you need in your home include:
- The area you live in. Is there a lot of crime in your suburb or area?
- Which crimes have the highest rate where you live? Is it crime against property or car theft, for example?
- Do you travel often, either for work or leisure, leaving your home empty for periods of time?
- What your budget is. Remember too that you need to factor in monthly monitoring costs if you would like to include back-to-base monitoring as a component of your system.
