I was never big on locking doors, until my college apartment was broken into over Winter break. Having something stolen from you sucks, but the loss of feeling secure is far worse. Living in Chicago has only made me more wary, though I’m far more worried about walking the streets downtown (the situation is completely out of hand these days) than I am about anything happening to me while I’m at home. I’ve never really considered a security system, but the other day I came across a company called Urban Alarm that takes home security to a new level. They’re based in Washington, DC, and that’s the only market that they operate in. They offer the same type of security alarm systems that other vendors offer, but they do it with no long-term contracts, same day service, and a high level of customer service. Moreover, they have additional services like Urban Vacation Watch (they watch your house, water your plants, etc. while you’re gone) and secure airport transfer (so the cab driver doesn’t call his buddy to tell him that your house is now unoccupied). Urban Alarm also has a lot of high-tech offerings (complete system control over the Internet), but it’s the personal touch that really makes their business stand out.
Crime continues to drop across the U.S. One might think that the recent recession would have caused an upswing in property crime, but the data seems to point the other way. A big reason behind this is that high-tech security systems like those offered by Urban Alarm are becoming more cost-effective, and as a result, more prevalent. Urban Alarm serves a customer “mix of commercial, institutional, and property management organizations, and homeowners.” If there’s something worth protecting, they can help you protect it. What I like most about Urban Alarm is that they truly seem invested in making communities feel safer. They’re not just trying to play up your fears so that they can get you locked in to a multi-year subscription. If you want to help make DC area residents safer, take a look at Urban Alarm’s Jobs page. There are two positions that look like good fits for new grads: Field Manager and Associate Account Manager. There’s also a Part Time Community Patrol Officer position.
