The Federal Bureau of Investigation last month released its annual list of violent crimes in communities around the country. Include in this report was offense and arrest data, which was reported to them by participating law enforcement agencies. The publication, called Crime In The United States, breaks down individual offenses, such as forcible rape, murder, aggravated assault, robberies, larceny, and theft, by community, for the entire 2012 calendar year.
According to the FBI's roundup, a total of 18,290 city, county, state, university, college, and federal agencies participated in the UCR program last year. Based on that information, officials were able to determine that, on a national level, violent crime increased for the first time in six years by an estimated 0.7 percent. Miami, Florida has seen the effects of this increase by way of an increase in home invasions and home burglaries. Law enforcement authorities in Miami and across the Nation agree that a home security system significantly reduces your chances of being a victim.
The question then remains as to what type of home security system to get and just as importantly, what alarm company to use. The latter question is easier to answer because there is one name in home security that stands above the rest. That name is ADT Security. ADT Security has long been the number one name in home security for several reasons. First of all, ADT Security is the pioneer in home security. With more than 100 years of experience, ADT Security is the oldest and most respected home security alarm company. ADT Security is also the only alarm company that has multiple central stations across the Nation offering redundant reporting in the event of a natural disaster. ADT Security also has a money back guarantee that no other alarm company offers to their subscribers.
After determining that the best choice for home security is ADT Security then the only question left to answer is, what kind of alarm system do I need. The choices are endless as far as manufacturers of alarm equipment are concerned. The type of equipment is based on your specific needs, but there are several things that are essential in all home security systems. The following items will help explain the different options there are out there to help protect your home.

The following list will describe the essentials of any home security system.
ADT Security Basic MonitoringFor those ADT Security clients that want an affordable way to have their ADT Security system monitored, ADT Basic Monitoring is the best option. ADT Security basic alarm monitoring utilizes your existing home phone line to transmit alarm signals to the ADT Security monitoring station. Whenever your ADT Security system is activated, it instantly picks up dial tone from your existing landline and transmits signals alerting the ADT Security central station.
ADT Security Cellular MonitoringFor those ADT Security clients that do not have an active home phone line, ADT Security cellular monitoring is for you. Thru the use of GSM cellular service, ADT Security provides effective fast alarm signal communication. When your ADT Security system is armed and is activated, the alarm signals are transmitted to the ADT Security central station thru a cellular communicator installed inside the ADT Security system control panel. Once the ADT Security central station receives the alarm signal they them proceed to notify the subscriber on their designated cell or landline phone numbers to advise them of the alarm condition.
ADT Security Two Way Voice MonitoringAnother level of ADT Security monitoring comes in the way of what is referred to as ADT Security two way voice alarm monitoring. This level of ADT Security alarm monitoring works in the same way that regular ADT Security alarm monitoring works with the exception that the ADT Security alarm central station operator has the ability to listen into the protected premises thru a microphone located on the arming keypad. This may not seem like a great benefit, but it actually brings alarm monitoring to a whole new level. By ADT Security alarm monitoring operator having the ability to listen into the protected premises, the ADT Security operator can now advise the local authorities whether or not the alarm activation is a real or false alarm. When an alarm dispatch is made as a verified true alarm condition, the level of dispatch goes up to the same as an actual live break in.
