When you buy an alarm system there are obvious factors that will influence your decision.  After all, you want to ensure the safety of your family and your property.  You will shop and compare based on quality, service, response times, and options such as glass break detection, motion sensors etc.  It is important to understand what is out there and what product as well as service provider will best meet the need of you and your family.  In addition to these very important variables, consumers should also be aware that current alarm technology can offer you many convenient option that you may not have know were available.

A prime example of available options is an automatic paging feature which will page you when an alarm is tripped or when, for example, your family comes home from school.  Not only a sound security measure, but a parent can make sure that the kids are coming home when they are supposed to!

If you have service staff or trades-persons entering your home, you can program a specific alarm code that only works on certain dates and times.  This way, you can rest assured that the code you have issued to the plumber cannot be used any old time.

Many systems offer a "duress code" that you can utilize if you are being forced to enter your home and deactivate the alarm.  While the duress code will disable the alarm system, the monitor will register a panic signal and emergency help will be deployed.

Two way monitoring may be an option for you.  This option involves installing microphones at key locations in your home allowing the monitor to hear what is happening.  Speakers can also be installed so that you can communicate with the monitoring agent even when you are unable to get to a telephone.

A signal from your car as you approach your home after a long day at work can instruct the security system to turn on selected interior and exterior lights.  This is a security enhancement as well as a way to save on energy bills.

People who live alone, particularly seniors with medical concerns, have the option of a security system that is able to recognize when something is out of the ordinary.  The system's motion sensors can alert a neighbor or loved one when there has been no motion detected for a certain period of time.  This option can help to ensure that your loved ones are able to get the help they need should they suffer a medical problem at home.

If there is a specific option that you would like to inquire about, is the premiere resource.  Chances are, you can find what you are looking for.  For example, most alarms chime when the door is opened, but you can also have the same chime sound off when a window is opened.  Think about what options might suit your needs before you begin shopping.  You may be amazed at what's out there!
