The monitoring supplier would make sure the respected authorities were dispatched right away
My hubby and I were able to afford our first house because the neighborhood is right on the cusp of a high crime area. We got a good price on a good sized lot and a three kitchen, two bathroom home with a connected garage! Our plan was to spend three years fixing up the locale and then sell it at a profit. We saw that there were numerous properties in the area getting flipped. The neighborhood was honestly increasing in value, but I felt a bit unsafe in the house. My hubby 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 recommended a house security system. Although we didn’t intend to remain in the apartment long-term, I knew that an up-to-date security system would be a beneficial selling point. I was willing to pay the weekly fee for a monitoring supplier. I liked having the signs advertising the security supplier 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 troubles. 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 phone. If anyone entered without permission, the alarm would sound. The monitoring supplier would make sure the respected authorities were dispatched right away. My hubby and I have since sold the apartment and moved to a much safer city. After buying a new house, one of my first improvements was to have a security system installed.
