“Police say burglars have been targeting seniors because they’re “easy targets.” ADT responds by offering new customers over $850 in free home security equipment* plus a $100 Visa gift card with $99 Installation and purchase of monthly monitoring service for homeowners ages 50+.”
In an effort to “arm” homeowners and curb the growing home invasion epidemic against seniors, one security company has started a program for homeowners (no renters), saying they will no longer have to pay for home security equipment. This is great news for homeowners who have been waiting to protect their home without breaking the bank.
This program was introduced on the heels of a new census report that shows home invasion has doubled in the US in the past 5 years, but home invasion among homeowners 50 and older has more than tripled. Authorities suggest this is largely due to the lack of home security systems installed within senior homes, combined with their lessened ability to retaliate if confronted.
Experts say your odds of having a home invasion happen to you are much higher without a security system, which is why this leading security company is offering them for FREE* equipment with purchase of alarm monitoring services.
“Seniors have become a target of home invasion because they typically don’t have up to date home security systems, and they’re perceived as having more money,” says home security expert John Morgan. “I think this program is an absolutely necessary step in the right direction and I encourage all seniors to take advantage of the unique opportunity. I’m just glad someone is doing the right thing.”
One of the first residents to qualify and take advantage of the FREE* home security program is 78 year old Joanne Mitchell. This is what she had to say:
“I’ve never really worried about home invasion until last year when my neighborhood started having break-ins every month. My kids pleaded with me to get a new system installed but I couldn’t afford it. A lady I play cards with told me about how she got her $850 security system for FREE* from this big home security company. She only pays $36.99/mo for monitoring, which is less than a cup of coffee a day to feel safe in her own home. She got broken into a couple months prior to her installation and they stole her late husbands wedding ring, and all of her jewelry. It was tragic. I won’t let that happen to me.”
“She sent me the security company’s website and I filled out the form and qualified instantly for a FREE* home security system. They came two days later and installed this high tech but easy to operate equipment all around my house. It only costs me $36.99 a month and I haven’t lost a night of sleep since. Now I know if someone tries to break-in, the system will rain hell down on them, and the police will show up within minutes. I think millions of other seniors can get protection too.”
If you’re over 55, you can be sure that these burglars know where you live. Have you ever seen the same car drive by multiple times that doesn’t live in the neighborhood? It’s could be a burglar doing his research on which houses in your neighborhood have alarms and which ones don’t.
According to an Ex-Police Officer:
“The best way to prevent a home invasion is to simply have a home security system installed. The sign in the front yard alone serves as a warning to any passerby that your home is not an easy target. It would certainly have made my job easier.”
