Year is 2006. Woman and boyfriend are murdered in her bed while they sleep! Killed by an ex boyfriend who was out on parole after attacking her with a butcher knife. Her expensive alarm system installed weeks prior failed to warn her. If and when you choose to install or have installed an alarm system you must test it as well as know how each component of the system will work. I read the story in my Security Sales & Integration magazine and was mortified. Do not rely on the technician’s word. This story is a wake up call for all of us. No matter how you slice it there is always a way around something but we don’t want to lead the way by allowing poor installations and untested equipment in our homes.
TEST IT WITH THEM AND UNDERSTAND IT! THEN TEST IT AGAIN!
