Alarm and Security companies are quick to get you signed up on their monthly monitoring contract. These contracts are self-renewing and difficult to get out of with all kinds of catches and hooks. Does that alarm system really "protect" you in the same context it was sold to you?
Below are Texas Department of Public Safety 2010 Crime Report Statistics covering Successful Arrest/Clearance Rates.
As per Chapter 2 Page 8 & 10 - Index Crime By Volume and Index Crime Clearance Rates
Murder - 1,248 Offenses, 78% Cleared
Rape - 7,626 Offenses, 44% Cleared
Robbery - 32,865 Offenses, 27% Cleared
Aggravated Assault - 71,561 Offenses, 56% Cleared
Burglary - 229,269 Offenses, 10% Cleared
Larceny/Theft - 654,483 Offenses, 18% Cleared
Motor Vehicle Theft - 68,219 Offenses, 12% Cleared
These rates are not very promising. We know that Law Enforcement is working as hard as they can with the tools and information provided to them. Most businesses don't have quality reliable High Definition Video Systems, but older end-of-life Analog Video Systems poorly designed and poorly installed with the standard Alarm/Security System. Below are a few important questions you should consider asking yourself about your Alarm/Security System.
1. Will your Alarm/Security System provide you with a High Definition picture or video of who or what happened?
2. Will your Alarm/Security System tell you what happened before, during, or after the alarm was triggered?
3. Will your Alarm/Security System provide any real evidence that can used by Law Enforcement agencies?
4. Will your Alarm/Security System allow you see any event on or around your premises in HD?
5. Will your Alarm/Security System prove or disprove any claim of liability, negligence, or fault?
6. Will your Alarm/Security System help with employee theft or product or company time?
7. Will your Alarm/Security System allow you to remotely view your business in HD on just about any digital platform?
