We lived in a nice neighborhood in the Los Angeles area. However, that does not mean anything when it comes to keeping our home safe. It is more than just being concerned about intruders. There is the concern of fire safety and even carbon monoxide gas from the water heater. We have pets that we really care about who are left at home while we work and the kids are in school. We wanted them to have the protection a monitored alarm system from ADT in Los Angeles CA provides.
I think that when people hear anything about an alarm system for their homes that they immediately think about a loud siren that goes off if someone breaks in. That is part of it, but today’s home security systems offer so much more. The number one thing is that our alarm system is monitored by live agents around the clock. If a sensor is tripped, the monitoring agency is notified over the cellular network. This means that no phone lines can be cut to disable our alarm system. Also, we have much more than just door and window sensors to notify of intruders. We have smoke and carbon monoxide detectors to protect us too.
Probably the thing about our home security system we use the most is the video surveillance cameras and the home control features. If our kids leave and forget to lock the door or arm the alarm system, my wife or I can do it from work or anywhere using our smartphones. We can also check in on our pets or the kids if we are stuck at work a little longer than expected. I can even close the garage door from work on those rare occasions I drive off in a hurry and forget to close the door. It is a pretty amazing home security system.
