It is a fact that a home without a security system is 300% more likely to be a target of criminal activity. Having stated this fact, is it also true that security systems are reactive, only responding after a break-in has occurred. In fact,in many cases it takes 15-20 seconds or more for a security system to detect and respond to a break-in.
Mike Miller, president of The Security Association, has said, “The point of a security system is to reduce loss.” However, the aim of Cartell is to eliminate loss, and the best way, ISECOM3 contends, is to inform home occupants before an intruder enters the home.
Law enforcement officials agree that one of the best deterrents to theft and home invasions is making criminals believe the family is home and aware of their presence. With this is mind, Cartell has created a line of products that integrate with any security or home automation system. Adding Cartell to a security system alerts the family when vehicles drive up and Cartell activates lights at night, making the home appear occupied. Criminals are also made aware they have been professionally detected, increasing their desire to scram.
When you add Cartell to a security or home automation system, you optimize the system and put security and home automation at the first place of defense: the driveway. Cartell makes it easy to add professional vehicle detection to existing systems.
