    Why Are Alarms So Important?

    Statistics show that significantly more break-ins happen during the last 2 weeks of the year, specifically the weeks leading up to Christmas and New Year's, than any other time of the year. These two weeks provide some of the first really cold weather of the season and create empty streets with plentiful stock available in stores.

Valuables and Opportunities Lead to Thievery It's that simple.
