Tips when considering alarm system installation Portland-wide

Portland Night Patrol can perform a risk assessment on your home, providing you with vital information to allow you to decide what kind of system will best suit your individual needs.

There are a number of factors you need to consider when working out what kind of home alarm and security system is best suited to you.

What is your household’s lifestyle and who makes up your household? Do you have young children, pets, teenagers or adults who are coming and going at all hours of the day? These factors will affect the choice of alarm system. If you have pets, you will need a system that allows animals weighing less than a certain amount to move in, out and around a home without setting off motion detectors. The system can be set to disregard one large pet such as a big dog or a number of smaller pets like cats.

Will you have multiple people accessing your home? For example, you may not want to give your young teenage child or a visitor one of your keyless remotes. In this scenario, a better option would be to choose a system that can be turned on or off with a keypad in addition to a keyless remote.

What is your budget? The more complex the system, the more you will need to allow in your budget for installation. Once installed, do you want to have a monitored alarm system? A monitored alarm system is one that is monitored 24-hours a day, seven days a week. You can have the optional extra of security staff coming to your property is response to an alarm. For a lower-cost option, you may consider it enough to have a call made to an emergency number (most likely be the home-owner) in case the security system is breached.
