    Default Anybody have a home alarm in So Cal

    I am thinking of having a home alarm installed at my house in OC. We are in Needles at our river house every other weekend and there has been 3 break-ins in my neighborhood in the last couple of weeks. Does anybody recommend a particular company or system?

    With the economy in the state its in I think theft is on the rise.

    Hey, now there's a thought. Maybe I can leave a window open and someone will steal my "owe more than it's worth" house?

    Where in So. Cal are you? I use United Security in Rancho Cucamonga for my home and business and have been very happy for 13 years, I have both monitored. Where are you in Needles?

    We used Edison for awhile but when we did some remodeling the contractor cut the phone line accidently to the alarm box, we were busy and forgot all about it 3 months later we are like WTF nobody has called us to tell us the system isn't working. That was several years ago and not sure if different companies do it differently now but make sure if your system uses the phone line for notification of a breach to the alarm company that something is gonna be triggered if the land line is cut.

    I think the guy that owns Mijac is a boater and participates in the shootouts.

    Departments: Patrol Response ToFalse Burglar Alarms
    The cost of accidental burglar alarm activations is enormous, impacting the individual police officer, his or her agency, and the community.
    by Joseph Petrocelli

    The majority of burglar alarm activations are not by bad guys. False alarms account for 10 to 25 percent of all calls to the police. Each call usually requires the response of two officers for 20 minutes. In 2002, American police responded to 36 million alarm calls, costing $1.8 billion.

    The cost is not only financial. An officer's time on duty is a finite resource; false burglar alarms lead to a misallocation of police capital. Most of the burglar alarms are installed in affluent neighborhoods, but burglary rates are much higher in lower income areas. With the police clearing so many false alarms in suburban areas, urban areas are vulnerable to actual burglaries. Police spend their time where there is a high density of burglar alarms, not where there are a lot of burglars. This may be why, despite a huge up-tick in the installation of burglar alarms, the clearance rate for burglaries remains under 15 percent.

    The problem is bad and is likely to get worse. Research into false burglar alarms is based on the approximately 32 million security alarm systems already installed in the United States. But every year another 3 million alarm systems are installed. A recent trend is the marketing of mobile alarm systems, which can be worn on clothing, handheld, or carried in a car. Some departments are already experiencing astronomical rises in their workloads. From 1985 to 2001, the Arlington (Texas) Police Department experienced a 494 percent increase in residential alarms and a 186 percent rise in commercial alarms. Ninety-nine percent of these alarms were false........
