Welcome to Direct Alarm's Company Newsletter, every month we will feature a customer spotlight, customer testimonial and company news and updates. Keep an eye out for coupons and discounts for new and existing customers. 
What does home security really cost?
Direct Alarm can offer you home security with our basic plan for as little as .65 cents per day! Our wireless system with the latest technology is cheaper than your daily cup of coffee.

Our security systems are individually customized for each customer and their home security needs, it doesn't have to cost a fortune to keep your home and most valued assets protected. 

The average property dollar loss per burglary is a staggering $2,251.

The price of a home security system pales in comparison to the emotional and monetary cost of a burglary. The FBI reports that burglary victims in 2014 lost a total of $3.9 billion, and nearly 75% of the burgled locations were residential properties.

Tip: Getting a monitored security system may also qualify you for a discount on your homeowners insurance policy.

Direct Alarm's Safety Tip of the Month!
Its summer and hopefully you and your family will have time for a vacation. Please be advised it is not safe to post photos of yourself on social media platforms while long distances away from your home. 

Burglars target social media accounts and look for photos of people on vacation and away from their homes. Burglars will recreate social media accounts pretending to be someone you know. Check your social media platforms for duplicate friends in your friends list. Be advised that friends of friends can see accounts too and that can also make you a susceptible target as well. 

We know its hard not to post, we ALL want to rub it in while were enjoying our time away. Save the photo posting and enjoy your trip, it is definitely worth the wait to post your amazing vacation photos after your trip to ensure your home is protected while you and your family are away.

Direct Alarm's "Guard Dog" Adoption Spotlight!
Say hello to Friskie! Friskie's elderly owner had to move into a nursing home, so SAP took in the female black lab mix in hopes of finding her a new family.

Friskie's only flaw is she’s a bit of a couch potato – she weighs about 85 pounds. However, SAP has a weight loss plan in effect for the lovable four-year-old. She’s exercising, on a diet and doing great.

Friskie is mesmerized by tennis balls. She'll follow you anywhere if you have one. She prefers to just store tennis balls in her mouth for playtime later, but will waddle and chase the green neon spheres if you throw it.
She gets along well with other dogs and has a relaxed, slow-motion personality.

Friskie would make a fantastic pet for any family.
