The likelihood of a break-in is not high, and many people living around the US choose not to install an alarm system at all. However, when it comes to protecting your home from theft, you buy an alarm system as insurance, with the hopes that it will never have to go off. However, in those fringe cases when your alarm system does trigger, you want it to perform its intended purpose. That’s why it is always a good idea to purchase only the best Chicago burglar alarms on the market: not only will your home stay protected during the rare instances of a break-in, you’ll have the peace of mind knowing that you are safe, come what may.

Burglar systems typically fall into one of two camps: hosted or closed. If a burglar alarm is hosted, it means that a “host” company monitors your property, and will be aware whenever suspicious activity is detected. When this happens, the company will contact an authorized user, checking to see if there was a mistake. If the homeowner is unaware of the alarm, or if they cannot be reached, the company will call the police. These systems usually cost a bit more than closed alarms.
On the other hand, a closed alarm system will be “closed” to the house itself, meaning that no external monitoring is involved. Instead, the alarm is wired into the house itself, meaning that if a door or window opens unexpectedly, it will trip the alarm, resulting in the alarm noise and — in some cases — flashing lights. These are meant to scare away a potential intruder and attract attention to those outside the home. These systems tend to cost less than the hosted alarms.
Depending on your situation, one system might be better than the other. However, each presents its own pros and cons.
