For many people, their home security measures consist of nothing more than locking their doors and windows. Others, however, like to take it a step further and invest in an alarm system. While these systems do offer greater protection than locks alone, if your system is old or outdated, you are probably more vulnerable than you realize. Our experts at Risk Management Development Group want to help you keep your home as safe and secure as possible, which is why we encourage you to upgrade your system to an option with managed security services.
- Why Your Old System May Need Replacing- To start, allow our team at RMDG to go over some of the reasons why alarm systems lose effectiveness as they age. For one, the longer a system has been on the market, the more opportunity that hackers have had to learn its weaknesses, making it more vulnerable. For another, your system may no longer be receiving important updates from its makers, resulting in suboptimal performance. Lastly, your alarm system may lack useful features from more recent models, such as remote access control.
- Why Managed Security Services are Better- If you don’t know, managed security services are a type of security measure in which a third party–in this case, our team at RMDG–constantly monitors your system in order to identify potential concerns or threats. If we detect an intruder or an attempted break-in, we will immediately alert you and advise you on the best way to stay safe, as well as alert the authorities and send them to the location in question. Instead of simply hoping that your alarms will scare the intruder away, you can rest assured that you have a whole team of people working to protect your home 24/7.
