New Hampshire Home Security Systems
In 2009, the rate of violent crime in New Hampshire was lower than the national average by nearly 60%, and the property crime rate was lower than the national average by over 25%, according to CityRating.com and Nashuatelegraph.com.*
In fact, New Hampshire had the nation's third lowest rate of violent crime in 2009 and the nation's lowest murder rate. As for property crime, New Hampshire had the country's fourth lowest rate in 2009. That same year, it was the seventh lowest in terms of burglary rate.
There were 4,928 burglaries in New Hampshire in 2009. Although that is considered a low number compared to the majority of the nation, it still averages out to over 13 burglaries per day across the state. Nationwide, an estimated three of every four houses are expected to be broken into over the next 20 years.
Fortunately, there are many simple steps that the typical Granite State resident can do to help protect against home burglary.
Easy access and opportunity are the two ingredients that make a home most vulnerable to burglary. Many burglaries take place during the daytime, when residents are away at work or school. But you can help secure your home with these measures:
Home security systems today are far more advanced than the burglar alarm systems of yesteryear. Today's security systems are mostly wireless and install quickly without a major disruption to your décor or your schedule. Once the system is installed and activated, any time a break-in or fire is detected, personnel at the 24-hour monitoring center are instantly notified. They contact homeowners and call for emergency responders if necessary.
ADT monitored home security systems come standard with an easy to use LCD control panel that allows the system to be quickly armed or disarmed, and that allows the homeowner to have instant two-way communication with the monitoring center. Other standard features include wireless window and door chimes and passive infrared motion detectors.
Your monitored home security system also comes with a wireless keychain remote that allows easy arming or disarming of the system and that has a "panic alert" button for instant contact with the monitoring center when there is immediate danger.
