Why Install a Home Security System?

By on August 4th, 2015

We hear this question ALL THE TIME. Most people familiar with their favorite neighborhoods (and neighbors) ask us because they think they don’t need one … that it’s too expensive, or that it’s “overkill” because a deadbolt seems like enough. Truth be told, we’ve heard every excuse imaginable (some are pretty funny), but we’ve also heard some incredible stories about how a security system prevented total disaster.

Usually, the success stories and testimonials come from families who credit their systems for alerting them to a deadly fire, or scaring off a burglar … very rarely though, do we hear stories about systems that protect from the inside out.

Recently, Damar Security Systems installed a Honeywell Lynx Touch security system in a new home for a young family. On July 21st, just prior to midnight, our signal receiving center received an alarm signal from their mud room door. Damar Security’s professional operators responded by contacting the homeowners and notifying them of the alarm … turns out, the alarm was triggered by their seven year-old daughter who was sleepwalking and opened the door!

Thank goodness the family had armed the alarm before going to bed that evening. The Honeywell Lynx Touch system features a “stay” mode which provides complete perimeter protection … and in this case, kept their daughter safe inside the house. Had the system not been armed, the situation could have been so much worse.

If you’ve been wondering whether or not a security system is right for your home, please remember that 1 in 3 homes that don’t have an alarm monitoring system will fall victim to a burglary as compared to 1 in 250 homes that do.

If you’re interested in learning more about the features available in the Honeywell Lynx Touch system, or if you’d like more information about our other security products and services, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We’re happy to help, and look forward to speaking with you: 877-263-2627

    Wow, I think it’s great that the security system was able to alert that seven-year-old’s parents that the door was open! I wasn’t aware that security systems could work from the inside out like that. My youngest son is also a sleepwalker, so I think that I’m going to have a security system installed in our home to help keep him safe. After all, I wouldn’t want him to wander out in the street while he’s asleep! Thank you for sharing!
