Sound the alarm

Residential and business alarms come highly recommended by the police. I am no different; I too consider alarms at your home or office to be a highly effective tool in deterring crime. Alarms can be difficult to manage for property owners when you are having a volume of false alarms.

I am sure you can relate to walking through a parking lot in some shopping center and hearing a car alarm sounding. I also would be willing to bet that you didn’t even pay it much attention other than to complain about the noise. Well, that wasn’t always the case. When alarms on cars first came out they were very popular. The purpose at the time was to alert people that someone was possibly illegally entering a vehicle. Unfortunately, because so many of those alarms were going off because of, well whatever reason, other than a crime related reason, people began to ignore them. So did the police. They lost their effectiveness.
