07.04.2016 - YouGov Research reveals what people think of Alarm Systems
A recent study carried out by YouGov revealed only 32% of households are protected by an alarm system. Nearly one in four questioned (23%) said that the expense put them off installing a system. Of those who have an alarm the survey revealed that less than half (49%) switch it on when they leave the house. Why? 20% forget. 13% fear false (nuisance) alarms and 13% say because its 'too complicated'. Suprisingly few people (11%) install an alarm because of a previous break-in or theft in their local area. The majority (53%) install an alarm for peace of mind with others (48%) also citing the deterrent value.
What can we learn. Your alarm needs to be affordable, reliable and simple to use. That's what we do ... give us a call to discuss your home security.
