WirelessAlert specializes in Early Warning systems.
Early Warning and Burglar Alarms(?) – what on earth is the difference?
Burglar Alarms need little introduction:
- How Burglar Alarms function; monitoring indoors and triggering sirens & armed response; has barely changed in 30 years – even though crime and criminals are entirely different!
- You have a burglar alarm only because insurance insists on it. And, why wouldn’t insurance insist… burglar alarms are excellent at protecting your insured valuables when you’re out
- Perhaps you’ve invested to upgrade your alarm with outdoor beams; and perhaps you sleep with your burglar alarm armed, but (because of the sirens and armed response) you probably don’t use it between 5pm and midnight – when 58% of robberies, ambushes, and attacks occur
Now, before we discuss Early Warning Systems (and how they differ from Burglar Alarms); What has changed in crime trends?
Miniaturization and the Constitutionto start with.
- 3, 2, and even 1 decade ago; when burglar alarms were conceived and effective, valuables were bulky – the hot items were VCRs, Microwaves, etc – not the kind of thing a robber could stuff in his pockets and flee with
- The legal system and honest citizens had teeth – criminals thought twice about invading homes when residents were home.
Today criminals get away with murder… literally.
In terms of what they want… it is your cell phone, laptop, keys to car and safe, ipod, etc. that attract robbers.
Since you carry that conveniently pocket-sized bounty with you, the only way to get it is to target you when you’re home – preferably during the early evening when alarms are off, doors are unlocked, and normal home noises provide cover.
Let burglar alarms protect your valuables (when you’re out); and put an early warning security system to work for you and your family – to protect you, personally.
You don’t need the drama of sirens and armed response – you need intelligent warnings:
The instant a robber trespasses; You need detailed, specific, pinpoint and customized information about the breach delivered directly to all those who need to know – household members (both inside the house and to their cell phones when they’re out), neighbours and armed response.
WirelessAlert systems are dedicated to this task.
