The main thing you as a Nevadan must do to help prevent burglary is to limit access vulnerability as much as possible. Easy access is what burglars look for most when casing a street or neighborhood. Here are some tips:
Nevadans from every walk of life are finding out for themselves just how effective and affordable ADT monitored home security systems can be. ADT monitored home security system alert a 24-hour monitoring center automatically whenever a break-in, fire, or smoke is detected. Homeowners are notified immediately, and the appropriate emergency responders are summoned.
The home security systems of today install quickly and won't disrupt your décor. You'll get an intuitive LCD control panel that you can use to arm or disarm the system or to have instant two-way communication with the professionals in the monitoring center.
One feature that many people love about their home security system is the inclusion of a wireless keychain remote. It can be used to arm or disarm the system, and has a "panic alert" button for instant communication with the monitoring system. Older Nevadans in particular like this feature because it helps them enjoy their independence with greater peace of mind.
