Getting control of the household budget is something we all attempt to do, but it can be difficult to determine what costs are most expendable. As you weigh the pros and cons of each expense consider that your insurance agent prefers you keep your alarm system monitored.Why Insurance Companies Love Security Systems

Getting control of the household budget is something we all attempt to do, but it can be difficult to determine what costs are most expendable. As you weigh the pros and cons of each expense consider that your insurance agent prefers you keep your alarm system monitored.

Here are some of the reasons your insurance agent knows your home alarm system is worth the expense:

  1. Burglars are opportunists who look for the quick entry and looking for cash, jewelry, electronics, guns and other easily sold items.
  2. A burglary takes place every 13 seconds in the U.S.
  3. The average loss per burglary is $1725.
  4. Homes with monitored security systems are three times less likely to be burglary targets.
  5. Fires can happen anytime with no warning.

Your insurance agent knows that they have less to worry about if you are actively securing and monitoring your home for both security and fire threats. This reduces the chances you will have a claim. Since this saves your agent money, they pass the savings onto you with discounts. Call your insurance agent for details.

False alarms are irritating. Irritating to you, your neighbors, and they may even startle your pets. They consume police resources and after too many you may be issued a fine or fee depending on where you live on Delmarva.

How To Prevent False Alarms
Luckily, most false alarms are easily prevented, here are some quick steps you can take to limit or eliminate those pesky false alarms

False alarms are irritating. Irritating to you, your neighbors, and they may even startle your pets. They consume police resources and after too many you may be issued a fine or fee depending on where you live on Delmarva.

We know you don’t like to be irritated and trust me –  we don’t want you irritated either.

Luckily, most false alarms are easily prevented, here are some quick steps you can take to limit or eliminate those pesky false alarms:

  1. Know your codes
    • Most false alarms are caused by people just entering the wrong codes to disarm. An easy way to eliminate this issue is entering custom codes for each person, being careful to never use codes that a burglar could easily guess like your house number.
  2. Secure all windows and doors
    • Keeping windows and doors closed is a smart security practice but is also prevents false alarms. Remember to close all windows and doors before attempting to arm your system and disarm it before opening.
  3. Train users
    • Make sure everyone who may have to interact with your alarm system knows how to use it and knows the false alarm password. Practice makes perfect, so encourage any new workers, babysitters, house cleaners and guests feel comfortable with your system. Use our easy interactive services to quickly assign and delete custom user codes after your guests or workers should no longer be able to access your home.
  4. Be mindful of petsCats especially, who can jump on high furniture are triggers of motion detectors. If you recently have adopted a cat into your home armed with motion detectors, call us to see what other security solutions we can replace them with.
    • If your home is armed with motion detectors and you have pets, be sure they are pet immune detectors. No motion detector is completely pet proof, though. Cats especially, who can jump on high furniture are triggers of motion detectors. If you recently have adopted a cat into your home armed with motion detectors, call or click here to ask our team what other security solutions we can replace them with.
  5. “Think” like a motion detector
    • It may sound silly, but a motion detector’s job is to simply report when there is motion. If you have curtains that move when your heater comes on, that motion may cause what you think of as a false alarm. Make sure holiday decorations, balloons and cobwebs are kept away from rooms with motion detectors as well. Have a Roomba that cleans your floors while you’re away at work? Yep, that’s motion, too. Also, make sure nothing is blocking your motion detector’s field of view such as a large box directly in front of it. Blocking your motion detector assures it cannot do its job effectively and can also cause false alarms.
  6. Pay attention to Low Battery Warnings
    • We let you know when you have a low battery, change them as soon as you can after you receive the notification. If you don’t want to change batteries, we can also do it for you.
  7. Consider the weather
    • Acts of nature can also set off your alarm. Strong winds, electrical storms and hurricanes can result in false alarms.
  8. Let us know if you suspect equipment problems
    • False alarms are typically due to human error. Nationwide, about 70% of false alarms are due to some kind of mistake. But if you ever feel that a false alarm was caused by an equipment error, call our office and our service department will troubleshoot the system over the phone and set up a service call if needed.

If you do cause a false alarm, don’t panic! Have your Account ID or passcode ready for the operator who calls you or call our office 24/7 to report a false alarm. Declaring a false alarm quickly can save police resources from being dispatched unnecessarily.

Don’t be surprised if one of our team members contacts to check on you after a false alarm. We know you are busy and want to follow up to if we can help you in any way. If you have any questions or concerns, call and talk to one of our team members 24/7 at 410-546-2210.
