Can I just tell you how happy I am that we pay for a fully monitored home security system! Last month, while my family was sound asleep, we had a terrifying experience that could have ended very badly if not for the system that we have installed in our home and on our property.
We live in an affluent neighborhood where many of the homes, including our own, are in the million dollar price range.
We all work very hard for what we have so we do what we can to keep ourselves and our belongings safe. This includes paying for a security system that is monitored 24/7. At times we question why we pay so much for it but I can tell you that they could charge me double from now on and I would never complain. While we were sleeping last month a group of men were in the area and they were breaking into homes that they knew did not have a security system. They hit three houses before they entered our property. Apparently they thought we did not have a system either because we didn’t have any signs in the yard to indicate that it was in place. The motion sensor in the yard had alerted the monitoring service and they had contacted the police within minutes. The cameras had recorded the individuals and by the time the doorbell rang it was a police officer stating that all was well. I didn’t even know that there was a problem. That was the best feeling in the world and I will never again complain about paying for any sort of security system.
