I am thinking about getting a security system installed in the near future, but I will need to know more about my options, before I actually make a decision. I want to make sure that the security system will function well, and will protect my family from a wide range of potential problems. I am looking into adt security in ankeny at the moment, because ADT was recommended to me by one of my friends, and I figure that I will look into them some.
I want to have a security system that is monitored on a constant basis. I hope to have alerts sent to my smart phone, in the case of an alarm being triggered in my house. At the same time, I would like the police, or fire department, to be alerted immediately as well. That seems like the safest way to go. In addition, I know my house is at some risk for carbon monoxide issues, so it would be ideal, if the security system came with sensors that could detect concentrations of carbon monoxide in the house. I do not know if that is a standard feature for security systems, but it would definitely make me feel better.
I am hoping to get the security system installed fairly soon, because my wife has been hounding me about this for along time. She really thinks that it will make a world of difference, in the relative level of safety of my family. I know that it will be an improvement, but I think she might be exaggerating a little bit. Either way, it is something that i am probably going to do. But I want to learn as much as I can about the different available security features, before making a decision on what type of security system I will get.
