My house is located right on the river. Flooding has always been an issue, but we have been quite fortunate here. Some of our neighbors get flooded every year, but we only had to go through that twice in all the years we have been here. One of the things that I did recently was look into ADT in Colorado Springs because they have flood monitoring as part of the package deal. Even though I have been fortunate where I live for being right on the river, I knew that any safeguards in place to alert me if there is flooding going on is well worth the price.
That is not the only reason I wanted to get ADT, but it is the reason that motivated me the most. I went to their website to look at all of the information on the flood monitoring as well as the other features of the security systems, and I only had one main thought once I read everything on the site. I should have done this a long time ago! I honestly thought that it was going to cost me more money than what it is, so I just did not look into it any further.
In addition to getting the flood monitoring, which can really be a huge money saver for me should flooding happen again any time soon, I am getting more too. The smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors are tied into the security system, and that makes me feel pretty good about this too. I have never been worried about someone breaking in because we live in a good area, but having an alarm on our doors and windows should that happen does make all of us feel more secure too. It did not take me long to get this up and running once I found out how affordable it is!
