Home security has become one of the top things people look for in a property. Along with lot size, square footage, and location, the kind of home security system a house has in place is now truly a deciding factor for buyers. Due to this trend, having a security alarm is not only important when living in a house, but when selling one, as well.
Security monitoring is a service that homeowners with a home alarm system installed can subscribe to, for a monthly fee that provides continuous monitoring of the security system by a company. This is a relatively inexpensive and cost-efficient method of protecting a home, especially when compared to other options such as hiring a security guard.
