BOTTOM LINE:Overwhelmingly, by the overwhelming amount of data accumulated by the expertresearchers of this New York investigative office, the almost conclusive finding of the researchersis that the mere fact of just having a good, professionally installed and monitored ELECTRONICHOME SECURITY SYSTEM ALONE, DRASTICALLY REDUCES the possibility of having aBURGLARY in a home, and hugely DETERS BURGLARS from hitting a home. (Just as it does, aswell, in respect to other important risk andemergency situations). KEY: THE MONITORED ELECTRONIC SECURITY SYSTEM MUST BE THE RIGHT ONE &QUALITY ONE OTHER CRITICAL FINDING OF THESE RESEARCHERS, THOUGH IS THIS: That, what isprobably of the most critical importance of all, however, is that you choose an electronic systemthat is of THE RIGHT brand from a quality company. Like any other industry, there are goodbrands and companies, and there are bad brands and companies. In deed, according to this finding, as a homeowner or consumer if you choose the improper orwrong home security system, or, even worse than that, the wrong or unreliable company whichprovides or installs the system for you, you stand a serious chance of sustaining serious break ins,and even risk to life, that is just primarily attributable to that specific factor alone! And, furthermore, that you may, in stead, possibly find yourself in even worse shape than you were before youfirst went for the home security system. So, for the homeowner interested in getting that GOOD home electronic home security systemthat you must have, how do you know or find it? This, in deed, is the critical task and test thatconfronts such a home owner. Choosing a home security and burglar alarm system, especially ahigh quality one that is the most proper and fitting type for you, and which will be unfailing anddependable, can be one of the toughest and most difficult things for any homeowner ever. Why? This is primarily due to the fact that there's such a great multitude and wide variety of housesecurity and alarm systems and security companies in the market. Just perusing local telephonedirectories or Internet searches, will quickly yield you a large number of home security companiesin any one of the major cities, which can often be most confusing for almost all but the most expertof security eyes. In fact, there are, by the same recent study, some moderate to major 2,500 to 3,400 outfits thatpresent themselves as security companies or marketers of such items across America. And out ofthese, a consumer or home owner is supposed to pick out just ONE to secure his or her home orproperty. Furthermore, just as importantly, in trying to compare the various security systems topick out the best and proper one for you, you must also be able to have a pretty good idea andunderstanding of exactly which types of important security features are offered by each option. A 1997 market research report, for example, by STAT Resources, Inc., a Newton Mass full servicemarket research organization, found there was an average of 13,100 businesses nationwide thatwere classified as "alarm installing entities."
