Did You Know?

You have a 1 in 7 chance of becoming a victim of a crime in Ocean City, MD according to Area Vibes.

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 the White Marlin Open, Sunfest, the beach, the boards, or the many amazing bars and restaurants in our area, 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.
