Your Berlin, MD Security Specialist

In 2014, Berlin was named Budget Travel’s Coolest Small Town in America! For more information, visit Budget Travel’s website.

“Travel back into the past with a stroll down Main Street in Berlin, Maryland”, says The Town of Berlin’s website. “The path you walk is the same as that taken by the Assateague and Pocomoke Indians well before the colonial period. Later, the path became the Philadelphia Post Road, the main route connecting the centers of commerce to the north and west. This area was part of the Burley Plantation, a 300-acre land grant dating back to 1677.

Located just minutes from Ocean City and Assateague Island National Seashore, Berlin enjoys a superb location and offers visitors a variety of shopping and dining experiences.

Berlin has also starred in two major motion pictures. In 1998 Berlin was the location for the filming of Paramount’s Runaway Bride starring Richard Gere and Julia Roberts. In the movie Berlin became the fictional town of Hale, Maryland, Maggie’s (Julia Roberts) hometown. Main Street became a “hot” set as filming was done using many of the downtown shops, not to mention hundreds of locals as extras. Then in 2001 Berlin became “Treegap”, the fictional setting for Tuck Everlasting starring Sissy Spacek, Ben Kingsley, and William Hurt. Downtown Berlin was transported back to the turn of the century complete with dirt roads, horses and carriages, and period costumes.

The population of Berlin as of the 2000 census was 3,491 and current estimates place the population at about 4500.”

Did You Know?

Here are some Berlin statistics that you may not know. Berlin, MD is safer than 34% US cities, according to Area Vibes. You have a 1 in 45 chance of being a victim of a crime in Berlin, MD. The crime rate has increased by 45%.

When it comes to deterring a break-in, the most effective deterrent is a professionally monitored security system with obvious signs and decals. Burglars like easy targets, and many times will just continue to the next house when they see an Alarm Engineering sign. In addition, when burglars see a neighborhood with many security system signs, they will often keep moving to an easier target. That means referring Alarm Engineering to your neighbors keeps you and them safer, plus you’ll save!

Speaking of Savings…

Your insurance company knows that you are less likely to experience a break-in with an Alarm Engineering home security system and less likely to submit a claim, so you may qualify for discounts. Contact your insurance agent to learn how much your homeowners insurance can be. For now, read all the reasons your insurance company wants you to have a professionally installed and monitored security system here.

What Burglars Look For

Most TV and movies show burglaries happening at night but in fact, most burglaries take place in the afternoon. So, while you’re out enjoying Main Street, Stephen Decatur Park, Burley Oak Brewing Co., The Globe or the Blacksmith Bar and Restaurant, bad guys might be helping themselves.

Social media is so tempting, but burglars have been known to monitor social for targets. Be careful about posting that you’re out of town or gone for long periods of time.

What is a Smart Home?

You may have heard the words Smart Home or Smart Home Automation lately. It might still sound like the Jetson’s, but smarter security is here now, for less than you think. Do you remember when you thought of your smartphone as a convenience and not a necessity? That’s how you’ll feel about smarthomes soon.

You might think that smart devices are the definition of a Smart Home. Smart devices are an important part of building a smart home, but some smart devices alone does not make a Smart Home.

So what does make a home smart?

Alarm Engineering is a five star team looking to add YOU!

Your Security System is the Smart Home Coach

Think of your favorite sports team. Each player has important and specialized skills, but they can only win games by working together.

The foundation of a good team is the coach. Throughout the game, the coach gets information from players and assistants to understand the big picture of what’s happening on the field. With this information, he can call the plays and makes sure each player contributes.

The true smart home has such a coach: your security system. Your security system controls every device in the home. It gathers intelligence from around the home and coordinates actions to make the home safer, smarter and more efficient.

You might not see what’s happening behind the scenes, but you will definitely notice the unique features and value that only a security-controlled smart home can deliver.

Integrated video, energy savings and proactive protection are some specific examples of how a Smart Home can make a positive impact. Read our full article on these features here.
