One of the most useful services at your disposal as a homeowner is a residential security service, mostly because of the many ways in which it can help to keep you, your family, and your home as safe as possible. Listed below are two reasons to hire a residential security service.


The best reason to consider utilizing a residential security service is the fact that they will follow up on anything that sets off your alarm. For example, if your alarm goes off, an employee at the security service's monitoring center will attempt to contact you to verify that there is indeed an emergency. If you confirm that there is an emergency or if the employee cannot reach you, then he or she will contact the most appropriate emergency response agency to help you. 

In some cases, these services will even have individuals patrolling your neighborhood that will actually follow up on an alarm from  your home in person in order to verify that everyone is alright. These follow-up services are not confined to intruder alerts either, but can follow up on everything from a fire alarm going off to moisture detectors detecting flooding in your basement depending on the type of alarm system that you have installed. 

Effective Component Placement

Another reason to consider hiring a residential security service is in order to take advantage of their research and experience when it comes to installing the security system components around your home. Security companies have spent a lot of time and money determining the most effective places to place their sensors, lights, and cameras in order to deter potential intruders from the weak points in your property, such as your backyard, side yards, and areas of your property that are blocked from view by shrubbery or other types of foliage. 

These services will also work to make sure that their components are placed in areas where they will not experience signal interference between wireless components and the central alarm system. This is vital as signal interference could make your system completely pointless by preventing a signal from a motion tracker from reaching your alarm system and alerting you and the security service. The service will attempt to avoid this by placing wireless components in areas where the wireless signals do not have to pass through attenuating materials, such as metal, water, or concrete.

Contact a residential security service like Tele-Plus in order to discuss how they can make you and your family safer by making your home more secure. These services can provide effective follow-up services after an alarm is triggered and install the alarm components in the most effective places possible to cover any potential intruder's access points to your home.
