Home security alarm systems can seem a bit confusing and overwhelming when you start doing your research, especially with all the choices and equipment that you often see marketed. In fact, most residential clients don’t need half of what is pitched to them. Rather than focusing on the equipment, we at Alarms R Us think that the best way to choose an alarm system is to identify what you need based on your living situation.


Most NYC renters don’t plan to stay in one place for 10 years or more, so they often don’t consider their security alarm system options. However, renting a home doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t protect your belongings. With the latest security alarm system technology available, you can find alarm systems that are both flexible and portable.

For the renter, wireless alarm systems are particularly helpful, because they do not require any hardware installation in the residence’s electrical system (likely off limits for a renter). Because these systems are tailored for rental properties, wireless alarm systems offer an advantage for customers who may want to relocate their place of living and their alarm equipment in a few years.


Homeowners, on the other hand, are far more stable and static in terms of their New York residence. You can enjoy the use of security equipment that is far more integrated with your home, such as landline and wireless communication, security cameras, automated locking systems, more durable equipment that can last years, and ongoing support for additional coverage as a house is remodeled or renovated.
