Approximately five million homes, or nearly one out of every twenty, are burglarized each year. In addition to that staggering figure, nationwide attention on the importance of personal safety has been heightened by the 350,000 abductions that occur each year. The media attention surrounding these home invasions, kidnappings and burglaries has caused many families to enhance the safety of their homes. Industry studies show that homes with security systems are about three times less likely to be broken into than homes without security systems. Moreover, losses due to burglaries average $400.00 less in homes with security systems compared to homes without security systems.

Alarm monitoring is like a utility bill and comes every month/year no matter what...offering no break in the ongoing payment. Due to the cost of living...most utility bills will increase their monthly/yearly rates over time.
The Monitoring Center has made a conscious decision to NEVER INCREASE our rates on its' senior customers because they are on fixed income.
When you activate your alarm monitoring service with TMC, you will specify a list of Emergency Response Procedures, which may vary based on whether a burglary, fire or medical alarm is triggered. Regardless of what type of alarm is triggered, we will respond to the situation as directed by your Emergency Response Procedures. At TMC we understand that every family and/or business is unique and we will follow your specific instructions in response to an alarm signal. The illustration below demonstrates hypothetical Emergency Response Procedures designated by John & Mary Smith that TMC would follow in the event that a security alarm were triggered at their home.
Crime Prevention Tips
Home Security System
- Always arm your security system (if you have invested in one) when you leave your residence, even if you will be away for a short time
- Properly display your alarm window stickers and lawn signs provided by your security provider
Basic Home Security Tips
- Always make sure that all doors and windows are properly closed and locked at night and when you're away from home.
- All doors should have a deadbolt...strike plate is also advisable. Secure your sliding doors with a metal rod or piece of plywood in the track.
- Timers work in creating the illusion that you are home
- Use outdoor lights with timers or motion activated lights. Light is a burglar's worst enemy
- Do NOT allow overgrown trees and shrubs to conceal a burglar while he is trying to break into your home
- Tree branches near your home can provide a "ladder" to the upper-level windows of your home
Going on Vacation
- Try to have a neighbor or friend collect your mail and newspapers
- Never leave any details on your answering machine about where you have gone and/or how long you will be there
- Neighborhood Watch really works...so if you have one...advise them you will not be home
- Notify your monitoring center that you are going on vacation
More Preventative Measures
A few more hints
- Install fences, screen doors, and window screens
- Peepholes and door chains where appropriate around your home
- Never open the door to any strangers.
