Did You Know?

Check out these Cambridge, MD statistics you may not know. Cambridge, MD is safer than 3% of US cities according to In Cambridge, you have a 1 in 94 chance of being a victim of a crime. The safest Cambridge neighborhoods are Elliott, Algonquin, Sunburst Highway/Maryland Ave, City Center and Washington St./Pine St.

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, Downtown, some of the best seafood around, Choptank River Lighthouse, Hyatt Chesapeake, or even RaR, 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?

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.
