There have not been any burglaries in our neighborhood. Just a couple of blocks over, the story is a bit different. I think the reason our neighborhood is ignored for burglaries is because we all have alarm systems on our homes. ADT in Denver is pretty popular. I don't think you have to drive far to see the yard signs and the door and window decals. I think they act as a deterrent. Think about it for a moment. If you were a criminal casing houses to break into, would you pick ones that have alarm systems or ones without?
It really is a no-brainer as far as I'm concerned. We do not have to know all the intricacies of being a thief whether petty or professional. We just need to think it through. No crook is going to increase his or her risk of getting caught and ending up in jail. The smart thing is to hit houses without alarm systems or cameras. The new ADT systems have battery backups and work over the cellular network. There is no cutting wires or getting around the fact that breaking in will call out the police. The nice thing is that ADT Denver alarm systems are very affordable. Basic systems can be had for a very low cost, and the monitoring is affordable too.
I look at it as an investment in the safety and protection of my home and family. We have had a system here since the first day we moved in. I actually had the alarm company come out and install the system before we began to move in our belongings. We have a routine of using the alarm system that works for us. It has never been an issue, and we get fire and carbon monoxide protection too.
