Your safety increases with the installation of an entrance alarm in your home or business. If someone comes through your door without letting you know, the entry alert will go off. No one should enter your home without announcing his or her presence. If they do, it could be someone intent on criminal activity. An alert system properly installed can be the thing that gives you the time you need to secure your families safety. An entrance alert can be deterrence to a break in. If someone of questionable character enters your home to do repairs, or for other reasons, seeing an alarm may convince them to skip your home for a possible future theft.
Whether you are in the back yard, garage, or in the back of the house, an entry alarm lets you know that someone else is in your home. This can give you enough time to leave the premises or make a phone call. In the mean time, the alarm company is already responding to the entrance alert from your home. A plan of action is in place if the alarm goes off. Some will have a neighbor called first while others will want the police called the minute the alarm goes off. The police will be at your home before you are fully awake.
Even if you are aware through out the day of who comes in and out of your home, night is a different scenario. Some people sleep sound enough that they may not be aware of an intruder until it is too late to respond. Having an entry alert that goes off will wake you the second your home is breached giving you time react to the intrusion while the alarm company makes the proper contacts.
Entrance alarms may have different features and different prices, but most work on the same principle. An entry alarm is just as important as a smoke alarm or carbon monoxide detector. An alarm system is put in place to protect you and your family from an uninvited guest. Most entrance alerts are turned on and off with a code entered into a keypad. You can give your code to anyone you want to have free access to your home. If anyone enters that sets off the alarm, you will know they should not be in your home. The purpose of an entrance alarm is your safety
