Home Security and Peace Of Mind

It was really fun and exciting when we moved into our new house two years ago. We had our new flat screen television attached to the wall, our new couch, refrigerator and washer and dryer delivered and set up. It felt like a dream come true that we finally had our new home.

One day, a door bell noise woke me up from an afternoon nap. I looked to our window and I saw a stranger standing and waiting by the door. Usually, I don't open the door for a complete stranger. I did not open the door. I ignored the ringing.

Because our neighborhood was new and there were only a few houses built nearby, I asked my husband if we could call a Home Security Team. I told him what had happened that afternoon and what I felt. He used to work nights and I'd be left alone with my little boy. I said that I didn't like the idea of us (my son and I) left in the house at nights. It was too scary for me. So, he told me to research about home security products, read consumer reports and decide which one to purchase. And that's what I did.

I read reviews, compared prices and just read some articles about the good things of having home security system. My husband and I finally decided to have ADT Security Systems set up in our house.

I actually felt better after they were done setting the system up. It was like it gave me a peace of mind. The ADT guys then gave us some ADT stickers for our windows and a sign for the front of our house. One day, I accidentally opened our back door when the security system was armed, and oh boy, the alarm was so loud I panicked. I was sure that our neighbors heard that very loud alarm noise.

The ADT guys also told us that if we had an emergency, we could call the police or the EMS right away by pressing the buttons on the ADT system equipment. If the alarm had been ringing for a minute, the ADT people would call our phone numbers and if no one answered, they would dispatch a police officer. It actually happened to us once when my husband did not close our door tight enough. It eventually opened triggering the alarm. They called my husband's cellphone and then mine. My husband was sure that it was just a false alarm so he told ADT not to send a police officer to our house. He went back to the house and found out what had happened.

I really like ADT because it makes me feel safer at home especially now that I have two little ones. If you are curious what ADT has to offer, just check their website (Broadview Security is part of ADT security).
