There is no doubt that society has changed over the years, as it does not seem that long ago that people grew up in small towns where they knew every face and never worried about crime. Sure there were random robberies from time to time, but for the most part people left their doors unlocked and looked out for each other in a relaxed fashion. Today this is pretty rare, as neighborhoods are packed full and strangers often pass through. It is good to be friendly and somewhat trusting, but using ADT home security for Austin will make sure that nobody ever abuses this trust by trying to get into your house.
Oddly enough, just having the system installed in the first place often deters many of the crimes that it looks to handle. Quite simply when a person is looking for an easy score by breaking into a house, they will prefer a place that has no security instead of risking the cops showing up and catching them. In the rare case that someone continues despite seeing ADT stickers or hearing an alarm, you can focus on staying safe until the cops arrive. There is no reason to fumble over a phone and try to tell the cops what is happening during the heat of the moment, because the ADT staff will be handling this for you.
Ultimately what this means is that you will get a faster response time from the cops, as the staff is trained to give very quick information to cops that can provide valuable insight to what might be happening or who might be in the home. This means you will get more efficient and timely help, which can be the difference between interrupting a crime and having to deal with the potential results of it instead.
