Website review home security systems to come up with list of best systems that could also lead to fewer false alarms
Home security system false alarms are a growing problem across the country. In fact, according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), fire departments in the U.S. responded to more than 2.2 million false alarms. In vacation areas, such as McCall, where homes are only used for part of the year home security systems are relied upon to notify dispatch/fire/police when something out of the ordinary is happening. A company that worked with police and fire departments and home security experts contacted McCall Fire & EMS recently to share a website that could help you find the right security system for your home. The information residents garner from this reviews website could also lead to fewer false alarms.
Their work can be found here:
The company looked at 40 different security systems. Their research revealed nine home security systems that were superior to the rest. The results were data-driven and non-biased for each of those home security companies. The site could help you decide which home security system to choose.
