“We test everything. We do a lot of analytics. ”That testing extends to almost every aspect of the company, from sales and marketing including how to handle in bound calls and its sales pitch to product offerings and customer service. That approach “assures we never under protect a family or never oversell a system people don’t need,” he said. While the future is bright, Boyce admitted Defenders’ 20 percent year over year growth rate could be difficult to maintain. “That’s not because the business isn’t healthy; it’s just that the number gets so big,” he said. He’s confident Defenders will continue to grow faster than the industry average. To meet growing demand, Defenders—which has 2,840 employees overall, including nearly 900 in Indiana—has doubled its number of installers and at home consultants in the last year to 1,755, Boyce said. The sky is falling?Defenders exclusively uses equipment made by ADT Inc.

home alarm systems

For the burglar who enters the home expecting it to be empty, finding members of the family inside can cause enough shock and panic to facilitate aggressive behavior. Having a security system in place often provides family members with enough warning to get to a safe location in our outside the home while the alarm system dispatches local authorities. For burglars that enter a home knowing that family members are inside, their intentions are often much more malicious and the home alarm system again serves as an early warning system and calls the authorities. According to the U. S. Fire Administration, in just thirty seconds a small flame can turn in to a full blown fire. In just minutes of a fire breaking out, the home will be filled with thick black smoke that makes it impossible for family members to breathe. These two facts alone are enough to reinforce the importance of having a home security system that will signal authorities to respond to a house fire. Time is the biggest factor in any emergency, but in the case of fire, time is of the essence. A few seconds of a fire safety concern could mean death or the complete destruction of a home and all of its contents. The presence of a home security system provides many families with a peace of mind knowing that their home is protected from a variety of devastating scenarios.

condo security system

There’s no option to receive automatic in app alerts. This also means your DIY security system is essentially a local alarm — meaning if a burglar breaks in, your alarm will activate, but the police won’t be alerted. You’ll have to pay for one of the professional monitoring plans to save yourself the task of keeping a constant eye on the video feed. That said, SimpliSafe’s plans are still some of the most cost effective in the industry its most expensive plan is still $10 cheaper than Frontpoint’s least expensive. Whether you choose to monitor yourself or have professionals do it for you, you’ll still be charged. Scout charges $10 per month just for DIY monitoring — there is no free monitoring plan.
