Alarm systems are a great way to alert family members or neighbors of trouble within your home. These systems can cost hundreds of dollars and require a monthly monitoring fee. A more affordable option is to purchase basic door and window alarms & glass break sensors. These items may be purchased on Amazon and we recommend the following items:
