Yale Alarm is one of the best in the market, which offers peace of mind protection for your home when you are away. In this post, I tell my story why I have chosen Yale Alarm as my preferred choice.
In 2006, I bought a home alarm system for my house. It worked for a few months then started to receive false alarm activation for no reason. It frustrated my neighbours and my family.
It was a budget alarm system which I bought from an independent shop. I started to realise that it is not worth the money I spent on it.
This experience has taught me a lesson that made me invest in an alarm system with a reputable company brand.
