Today’s security system preferences

A guard dog or a well-hidden camera linked to a smartphone?  Security  review website Safehome polled homeowners to see whether traditional methods or high-tech security systems make people feel safer.1

  • A professionally monitored home  security  system was the #1 choice (a score of 4.33 on a scale of 1–5).
  • People who felt safe were two times as likely as those who didn’t to have a home security system that is self-monitored on a smartphone or mobile device.
  • Homeowners in rural areas felt safest with an entry keypad with a  security  code and alarm. Those in suburban and urban areas felt safest with a professionally monitored  security system.

As always‚ it is a pleasure staying in touch.
