You Need to Switch it On
You wouldn’t believe how many people buy a security system only to leave it turned off all the time. There is no excuse and if you’re too lazy to turn it on it will be a waste of money. When someone has had one too many false alarms they sometimes decide they would rather take their chances with a locked door. Only buy an alarm system if you’re going to use it.
Everyone will Hate You
We just touched on this, but I think it’s important that you realize how much you will annoy some people. Hate is a strong word so maybe it’s too strong a word to use, but when you’re out and your alarm goes off you won’t be able to do anything until you get home. Your neighbors are going to have sore ears and it’s even worse when your alarm goes off in the middle of the night.
You Should do your Homework
Don’t let someone tell you what to buy for your own home. You can definitely listen to a professional because they will be able to give you good advice, but you need to do your homework so you’ll know what they’re asking you to buy. If you don’t read up on something before spending thousands of dollars you’re a little crazy.
