The monitoring corporation would make sure the correct authorities were dispatched immediately
My fiance and I were able to afford our first home because the neighborhood is right on the cusp of a high crime area. We got a good price on a fine sized lot and a three family room, two bathroom home with a connected garage, our plan was to spend three years fixing up the place and then sell it at a profit. We saw that there were multiple properties in the part getting flipped. The neighborhood was unquestionably increasing in value, but I felt a bit unsafe in the house. My fiance and I both work long hours. I often return home to an empty house. We considered getting a dog, but we weren’t home enough to handle the necessary care. I advocated a home security system. Although we didn’t intend to remain in the condo long-term, I knew that a new security system would be a beneficial selling point. I was willing to pay the weekly fee for a monitoring corporation. I liked having the signs advertising the security corporation visible in the yard. Those signs, along with motion activated lights, helped to deter vandalism and break-ins, and anyone approaching the home could clearly see the video cameras mounted on every side. While several properties on our street experienced theft, we had no problems. Anytime anyone knocked on the door, we could check the video feed and see who it was. We had the ability to lock and unlock the doors and turn lights on and off through an app on our cell phone. If anyone entered without permission, the alarm would sound. The monitoring corporation would make sure the correct authorities were dispatched immediately. My fiance and I have since sold the home and moved to a much safer neighborhood. After buying a new house, one of my first improvements was to have a security system installed.
