HOW TO INSTALL A SOUTHERN HOME SECURITY SYSTEM
1. Go to Goodwill and buy a pair of size 14-16 men's work boots.
2. Place them on YOUR front porch, along with a copy of Guns & Ammo Magazine.
3. Put four giant DOG DISHES next to the boots and magazines.
4. Leave a note on your door that reads ......
Me and Marcel, Donnie Ray and Jimmy Earl went for more ammo and beer. Be back in an hour. Don't mess with the pit bulls. They got the mailman this morning and messed him up bad. I don't think Killer took part, but it was hard to tell from all the blood. Anyway, I locked all four of 'em in the house. Better wait outside. Be right back.
Where do you live? Agreed on ADT, can't stand them. I went with Bay Alarm in the SF Bay Area and couldn't be happier.
I'm in Florida. Palm Beach area.
http://www.homesecuritystore.com sells systems up front that you or someone you know can install then have monitored through another company for around 8 bucks a month. Wireless systems are easy as fuck to install and can be done by a handy person. They have decent forums too.
You'll get a significant cut on your homeowners insurance once a system is monitored. Keep that in mind when you are pricing the systems.
In one. Doesn't do much to stop smash and grab kids.
Our neighborhood hasn't had any break ins yet that I've heard of, but another one nearby has had a few. One house had cameras and it was young, suburban looking white kids breaking in.
The monitoring is the biggest reason I hate ADT. They don't do a damned thing.
Something tripped our alarm and I didn't find out till a neighbor called me to let me know. He said it was already on when he got home from work and even waited 15 minutes to call me. Never heard a word from ADT until I called them.
An attack dog, of course.
Home security systems are a waste. When they work they're just a signal for the police to come and take a burglary report. When they don't you get false alarms that the police will start charging you for.
You can set some of the newer systems up to text or email or call your phone as soon as the alarm trips.
My parent's get a text if their fridge is open. It's crazy.
