Burglary is one of the most common crimes across the country, but there are many things that homeowners can do to help reduce their risk of being victimized by a burglar.
Burglaries are often crimes of opportunity: in general, burglars target homes that are easy to get into. If it looks like they'll have a difficult time gaining access, they'll usually go somewhere else.

Montana residents are installing ADT monitored home security systems in increasing numbers because these security systems are affordable and effective. The home security system of today is easy to operate and mostly wireless, so that you don't have to disrupt your home décor to have a system installed
Whenever a break-in or fire is detected, the system automatically notifies monitoring center personnel, who then contact the homeowner. Emergency services are summoned if necessary.
Standard features on the latest home security systems include an easy-to-use LCD control panel that allows two-way communication with the monitoring center, as well as easy arming or disarming of the system. Security systems also come with wireless window and door chimes that sound whenever the window or door is opened.
A passive infrared motion detector is included, as is a wireless keychain remote with a "panic alert" button that notifies the monitoring center immediately when pressed.
