So, you’ve done the research, you’ve chosen your alarm system, and everything is now installed. Congratulations! Your home is now that much safer from theft, damage, and loss. Now that it’s set up, it’s time to start thinking about how you can ensure that you’re working alongside the system to reap the most benefits.

If you’ve invested in a system to keep your home safe, now is the time to starting considering the best practices for using your Sonitrol Home Security System.

Always Set the Alarm

Even when you’re home, it’s a great idea to set your alarm. There are options for “Stay” settings, which will alert you if any doors or windows are opened while you’re at home. This kind of option is ideal at night, but it doesn’t hurt to have it on during the day when you’re not expecting anyone. This is especially important since the most common time for burglaries takes place between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. when most people are at work.
