Why It's Worth It - The Benefits of a Security Alarm System

Many people are skeptical about investing in a security alarm system, wondering why they should make the investment. People often feel that if they live in a safer neighborhood, they do not need an alarm system. This is not entirely true however, crime can happen anywhere and there are numerous addtional benefits to having an alarm system. Obviously, the main reason people purchase alarm systems is to protect their homes or businesses, but alarm systems can make entire neighborhoods safer. A recent study done by The School of Criminal Justice at Rutgers University showed that the higher the density of alarm systems in a neighborhood, the lower the crime rate. Burglars tend to avoid areas where they are more likely to get caught. The study was based out of high crime areas in Newark, New Jersey and saw significant drops in burglaries in neighborhoods where alarm systems were installed in greater quantities. Another benefit is lower insurance rates. Many insurance companies offer discounts to businesses and home owners who protect their property with security systems. A third benefit of alarm systems is a significant reduction in loss. Though alarm systems cannot always entirely prevent burglaries, burglars tend to be in and out of homes quicker and end up taking, on average, $2500 less worth of valuables from homes with alarm systems. Burglars know that law enforcement is on their way, and audible alarms attract attention. More advanced alarm systems include additonal benefits including fire and heat detection, keyless entry and the invaluable ability to keep track of elderly loved ones. To summarize, benefits include:
  • Safer Homes + Businesses
  • Safer Neighborhoods
  • Reduced Loss
  • Insurance Discounts
  • Fire + Heat Detection
  • Peace of Mind

Holiday Crime Spree Targets iPad, iPhone And Other Apple Products

Though Apple doesn't discuss it much, their products are a favorite target of robbers, pickpockets and burglars. Law enforcement officials reccommend not putting your iPad or iPhone on display, especially in cities where pickpockets are prevalent. Leave your iPhone in the bag when you're on the subway in New York City, it could save your life. Though it is unfortunate, people have been killed for their smartphones and tablets in metropolitan areas. Even in the suburbs, burglars are getting in on the iPhone theft action, breaking into Apple stores. Crime rates spike during the holiday season and several stores have been broken into over the past month including a store in upscale Greenwich, Connecticut and one in Woodcliff Lakes, New Jersey. Unfortunately for the criminals Apple stores have numerous security featurs including CCTV systems, burglar alarms and anti-shoplifting tethers. In addition, all products in the store have permanent identifiers which can be tracked wirelessly. A final security feature is the ability to remotely erase data, lock and disable the phone. Even individuals have this ability with certain paid downloadable applications. This can be beneficial as oftentimes our i-devices contain personal data, e-mail access and more.

Protect Your Home From Holiday Theft

Though the holidays are often seen as the season for joy and giving, burglary rates significantly increase during the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas. People have their guards down and their homes filled with gifts, so criminals seize the opportunity to snatch up expensive purchases including electronic devices, top of the line toys and jewelry as well as cash and other valuables in the home. Police say that during the chaos of the holiday season people often forget to activate their alarm systems, lock their doors and leave pricey items unsecured in cars. Even though all the shopping, decorating, cooking and planning can get hectic, be mindful of your security. Make sure alarm systems are installed and activated as most burglaries occur between 7:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., when no one is in the home. Consider forming a neighborhood watch group, if only during the holiday season. If you wil be at work, ask a neighbor to bring in any packages left outside your door. Lastly, photograph the serial numbers of personal items in your home. This will help you to not only claim your losses, but aid law enforcement in tracking the items if they are stolen. If you live in the New York, New Jersey area and do not currently have an alarm system, call T&R Alarms at 1-800-486-5019 for a free estimate and assistance in choosing the right security system for your home.

Pennsylvania Burglar Caught After 41 Home Spree

An Allentown, Pennsylvania man was arrested after a five month burglary spree in the Lehigh Valley. He confessed to stealing nearly $100,000 of jewelery, cash, electronics and other property from a total of 41 homes...all while on house arrest. Able to leave his own home for grocery shopping and doctor's appointments, he took advantage of that time. He robbed homes during the day, while owners were at work. The 38 year old said that he avoided homes with alarm systems to reduce his chances of getting caught.  This worked for some time until he was spotted by witnesses. An accurate description was given to the police, making him a suspect. As his location was constantly monitored because he was on house arrest, it was easy to prove he was near the locations of all robbed homes on the date and approximate time they were burglarized. After being questioned, he admitted to commiting the crimes. He faces a possible 40 year jail sentence.  This news item highlights the importance of burglar alarm systems. Not only do alarm systems, particulary those with CCTV features, make it easier to catch burglars, they can actually prevent crime from occurring. To protect your home or business, call T&R Alarm Systems at 1-800-486-5019. We install a variety of security and fire systems in the tri-state area and beyond.
