American Alarm’s featured home security system in Weston, MA
Last winter, while out of town, one of our home security customers in Weston suffered property damage due to frozen pipes. The water pipes burst, flooded the basement and caused significant damage that required extensive and costly repairs. This pipe problem was caused by the failure of a newly installed furnace. These kinds of damages can be mitigated as a part of a home security system offered by American Alarm.
Unfortunately, at the time the furnace failed, American Alarm was only contracted to monitor the customer’s burglar alarm system and did not have the home security system components in place to identify or notify the customer of the problem. After the clean up and repairs, American Alarm was called in to install low temperature sensors and pre-flood sensors to alleviate this situation in the future. Now, when out of town, our Weston customers can relax because they don’t have to worry about frozen pipes or flooding.
Insurance companies are now giving discounts for low temperature sensors, flood sensors, and back up radio for telephone failure.
