October is Crime Prevention Month – and once again the National Crime Prevention Council is on the case with a great list of timely tips on how to “Take a bite out of crime” – McGruff the dog’s famous tag line. With burglaries on the increase, the need for safe and reliable home security is greater than ever. NCPC’s web site includes the following important advice on having an alarm system: as you can imagine, we agree 100%!
Consider an Alarm
Alarms can be a good investment, especially if you have many valuables in your home, or live in an isolated area or one with a history of break-ins.
Check with several companies before you buy so you can decide what level of security fits your needs. Do business with an established company and check references before signing a contract.
Learn how to use your system properly! Don’t “cry wolf” by setting off false alarms. People [and the police] will stop paying attention, and you’ll probably be fined.

Of course, FrontPoint also believes that the best way to protect your home is with interactive, wireless home security – starting with cellular monitoring. Peace of mind may start with knowing that an intruder cutting your phone line won’t affect your alarm system – or your protection.
FrontPoint strongly encourages you to support the NCPC, and take its advice to heart. By the way, McGruff turned 30 this year!
