When I bought my house a few years ago, I didn’t even consider getting a home security system. I didn’t research home security prices then, but I just felt that it was going to be something that I simply could not afford. When my neighbor’s house was broken into a few months ago, I knew that it was time to finally look into it though. When I first moved in, it was just me, and I felt that I could take care of myself. Now though, I have a wife and a set of one year old twins, and I will do everything within my power to make sure they are protected.
I didn’t waste my time by looking into a bunch of different companies. I already knew that I wanted ADT Security because they have a reputation that I admire. They are the first name I thought of when I started thinking about security systems, so I know that is probably the mindset of most others too. I knew that I would have a yard sign announcing to everyone that I have an ADT security system in place at my house, and that is something I wanted advertised to anyone wanting to cause me, my family or my home harm.
I knew that sign would be enough to deter even a hardened criminal because they want an easy mark. They would rather go to a home that does not have a security system in place, like my neighbor’s house a few months ago. If someone sees that sign in my yard, they are going to move on to an easier target where they will be able to avoid detection. After the system was installed, I realized that it was something I could have afforded all along. It’s better late than never though, and we do feel a lot safer now.
