Our Different Reason for Getting a Home Alarm System

I took a different approach when my wife and I got interested in getting an alarm system for our home. We were not really concerned too much about burglary. In the 15 years we have been living here, we have not had any incidents of trouble like that. Our outdoor shed for our power tools has an open front. We have not had anyone steal anything. Rather, when we looked for a company to provide local home security, we wanted to have monitored smoke and carbon monoxide protection and security cameras because our pets are home alone when we are not there.

I wanted the cameras to be able to check in and make sure they are okay when we are not there. The fire protection would automatically send help if there was trouble. Plus, it protects us if we happened to be incapacitated by carbon monoxide. An alarm system for your home is more than just putting sensors on your doors and windows to give your early warning if someone breaks in. Don’t get me wrong. Those sensors on your doors and windows are great. They even act as a strong deterrent to someone who might be targeting your house to steal something. An alarm system might help make a criminal bypass your house for an easier target.

I know that crime can happen anywhere at any time. We probably should close in the front of our shed to help keep honest people honest. However, the benefits of an alarm system for us begin with the security cameras to be able to monitor how are pets are doing and the fire protection for them while we are at work. That was the focus we had when we were looking into an alarm system provided by a local home security company.
