My adt home security system is a necessity in my house. Although we live in a fairly safe neighborhood, we’ve had our fair share of break-ins in recent months. I’m a stay at home mom, and my husband travels a lot. Therefore, I feel much safer when I’m able to set my alarm. I know something would be wrong if I ever came back to the house and I didn’t hear that alarm as I entered the front door. That simple fact alone gives me peace of mind.
In addition, it makes me feel better to set the alarm at night, particularly if my husband isn’t home. If anyone ever did try and get in, the alarm would serve as my warning, and I could try and get myself and my son to safety. It may sound a little crazy, but I’ve always had a nervous personality. The alarm just helps me to feel better, and I can lay my head down and sleep soundly at night.
I recently discovered another benefit to the system as well. We set it so that the system chimes as a door is opened or closed. It also announces which door has been opened. My little guy recently discovered that he could open and shut the doors in our house. The other day, I was in the kitchen and he tried to get out the front door. You would think I would have heard him as he tried to open it, but I didn’t; the alarm alerted me, however, and I was able to grab him, shut the door and lock it.
We have been talking about moving recently, and I’m on board with the idea. However, I have one condition; the new house absolutely must have a security system installed in it as well.
