Security environment in Florida and California
I have heard that the security environment in Florida and California is deteriorating with more petty crimes and more serious house break-in's happening everyday. Being concerned with the safety of my family, if I ever move my whole family over to US, I am seriously considering installing home security or alarm to protect our home. Now I have seen the logo of ADT home security
on the facade of houses saying "This house is protected by ADT" or something to that effect, in my home country and is wondering if this little signboard is effective in deterring break-ins. I am not familiar with the security situation in Florida and California would like to find out if ADT in Florida and ADT in California are reliable providers of home security systems and if like in my home country, they not only provide the hardware for home security, they also have a central monitoring system by subscription whereby any alarm will trigger a call to their central monitoring system. Does these 2 providers of alarm systems also stick the "Secured by ADT" signboard on facades of houses to deter burglars from breaking into the house there too?
The economical and political situation in my home country is fast deteriorating with a horribly corrupt and power abusing Federal Government using patronage to stay in power and with practically all the key institutions like the judiciary, the police, the Anti-Corruption Agency, the Election Commission and many other government agencies compromised and not looking after the true interest of the general public. Many are thus seriously considering emigration while a huge chunk of the skilled and professional class have already being lost to our unfortunate country.
California and Florida are states with a climate similar to our country is also a popular destinations of emigrants. Like anyone else, we would like our family to be safe and protected. If you are from Florida or California, I hope you will tell us your truthful opinion of ADT in CA and ADT in FL and if you think ADT is a home security provider that you would recommend to emigrants by leaving a comment.
