10 Realities Of Home Security Systems That Prove You're Better Off Dead Than Owning One
10. Alarm System Technology Is Older Than Dirt
Consumers install alarm systems hoping the equipment will turn their homes into Fort Knox. Too bad they will be gravely disappointed to find out that most alarm technology is old and outdated. Like, real old and outdated. To give an analogy, alarm systems compared to many other outlets of consumer technology is like comparing a Bluetooth headset to the power of a smartphone. Even the concept of the average system is old. They are really just uncomplicated noise makers. The alarm company technician will install a small sensor on doors and windows, and if that door or window gets opened the siren will go off about a minute later. This initial design was created by Augustus Russell Pope in 1857. In fact, many of the common systems found in today's households date back to the 90s.
