Why I Got a Home Security System

When I started reading the crime stats for our country, I was really surprised. The only reason I was even curious was because crime seemed to be creeping closer and closer to the town I live in. I was wondering just how much crime there is in our country as well as the region I am in, and a website I found was very informative with this information. I found out that there is a home burglary every 14 seconds in the United States. That is really hard for me to wrap my head around it!

With the knowledge that crime is getting closer to me and that is has such a high frequency rate, I knew it was high time for me to think about protecting myself and my home from any burglary attempts. I found another website that gave me all the information I needed on ADT. I chose this company because of their reputation. They have been in the security business for years, and they have built quite the reputation in the process. I like that they are a national company with their own monitoring service too, but I can have a local company put in the equipment and show me how to use it.

I called the number from the site I looked at, and I was able to have all of my questions about a home security system answered. Granted, all the information was on the site I looked at, but I wanted to get clarification on a few things. I was able to schedule an appointment for a technician to come out to my home, and he was very informative as well when he showed up. I hope that I never have the need for this system, but I am very grateful that I have it!
