27 Sep The Best Home Security In Bakersfield
EyeWitness News reported a home invasion on Thursday, September 22, 2016 in Bakersfield, CA.
During the robbery, the criminals held the homeowner and his grandson at gunpoint, tied them up, and robbed them.
Luckily no one was injured during the incident. And thanks to a good Samaritan neighbor, photos were snapped of the getaway car, which helped lead to arrests.
A couple months previously, another home invasion occurred in Bakersfield, in which an 80-year old woman was beaten, shot, and robbed.
Fortunately, the victims of these home invasions survived.
It may be easy to reason with yourself that “these kinds of things just don’t happen to me,” but let’s be honest for a second: these victims of home invasion likely thought same exact thing.
Fall season is upon us and the start of the holiday season just around the corner. That means home invasions in California and across the nation will unfortunately and inevitably be on the rise.
While it’s true that not every home invasion can be completely prevented, there are several things you can do to protect your home and both reduce and deter potential break-ins.
With ADT installed in your home, you can have the best home security in Bakersfield. Let’s run through exactly what an alarm system can do for you.
Home Security Systems and Burglars: The Facts
An ADT home security system can make all the difference when it comes to protecting your home.
During a study by University of North Carolina at Charlotte’s Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology, 422 convicted burglars were chosen at random across 3 states and asked several questions regarding their decision-making process when deciding to burglarize a home:
- 60% of convicted burglars admitted that if a house had a security system, the burglars chose a different residence.
- Most burglars would try to find out if the home they were targeting had a home security system previous to breaking in. If the home did have a security system, roughly half would end their attempts altogether.
- A majority of the burglars in the study indicated they entered homes through open windows and doors, or forced them open.
So let’s run through several ways an ADT security system can help protect your residence. That way, you can live comfortably and enjoy life to the fullest!
Displaying an ADT Sign In Your Yard and Decals On Your Windows
According to the statistics of the study above, simply displaying an ADT Security Yard sign in your front yard and putting window decals around your home is one easy way to deter potential burglars.
It lets passers-by know that your home has a top-of-the-line ADT security system.
We at Zions Security Alarms make it our priority to protect your place of residence and the ones you love.
That’s why when you buy an ADT security system from us, we will give you several free pieces of equipment, like a wireless door sensor, a wireless motion detector, a high decibel interior siren, an ADT yard sign and decals, and much more.

Window and Door Sensors
One of the best ways to keep your home protected is to place sensors on your windows and doors.
Placing sensors on these entrances into your home will allow you to know if they are open/left open.
Your system will emit a chime (or a voice alert) every time someone opens a door or window with a sensor.
Electronically monitoring your windows and doors isn’t just a huge benefit for protecting your home against break ins.
For those with younger kids, this is a great way to keep tabs on your children. They open and use your windows and doors a lot more than you might think!
With ADT Pulse, which lets you secure your home from wherever you may be (all you need is an internet connection and the app on your smartphone), you can use a monitored deadbolt.
This means with an internet connection, you can check the unlocked/locked status of the door at any time, whether you’re on-the-go, on vacation, at work, running errands, etc.
With an electronic deadbolt like the Kwikset Z-Wave Deadbolt, you can open the deadbolt with a key or have a special security code set up so you can go keyless and unlock it by typing in the code on the deadbolt or opening/locking the door from the application on your smart phone.
You can also set up “text message” alerts to notify you when someone opens the electronic deadbolt.
For even better home security, you can have security cameras installed.
Depending on where you install your security cameras, not only would you be able to see who is knocking at your door or on your property, but you can also keep tabs on your family inside, too.
With both indoor and outdoor cameras, you can literally see exactly what is going on at your home, and with an ADT Pulse System, you can view it all from the palm of your hand with your smart phone.
Additional Keypad and Panel Features
Installing a top-of-the-line keypad and panel in your home allows you to take your home protection to the next level for even better home security in Bakersfield.
For instance, with the ADT Lynx Plus Keypad and Panel, one of our top-selling keypads, you can have access to several amazing protective features like:
- A panic button.
- “Stay” and “away” arming modes.
- Video camera control.
Just by pressing a special button on the keypad, you can signal a fire or medical emergency to officials. You can even silently alert police authorities.
If you are at home, by activating the “stay mode,” you can alarm the perimeter of your home and move freely about inside. When you leave your residence, you can activate “away” mode, which will secure the entire premises.
With the ADT Pulse Keypad and Panel, you can support up to 10 ADT Pulse video cameras. You can also access and view the cameras you have installed at any time of the day.
