If you take the time and spend the money to install a home alarm system in your home, be sure not to overlook one of the most powerful things you can do to protect your family:
Install yard signs and window decals that say “Protected by…”
You might be surprised at how effective the simple window sticker and yard sign that you see at many homes are. If the “bad guys” know that your home is protected by a home alarm system, they are going to be much more willing to go on to the next home that isn’t protected.
Police departments and home alarm system companies generally all agree that it is far better for you to advertise that your home is protected because advertising acts as a deterrent from the random break ins. If you have a home alarm, it is well worth the small investment to be sure that you have installed the right home alarm system yard signs and window decals.
So the bad guys know that you and your family are protected by a home alarm system.
