When we first purchased our cabin over 26 years ago in Branch, Michigan, we were not concerned with security. However, over the first 17 years, we suffered three break-ins causing severe damage as well as the loss of many items which we held valuable to us. We became concerned that our insurance company would either cancel our policy or raise our rates which fortunately did not happen. We had no peace of mind as we live over 100 miles from the location and could not keep an eye on our property. Each time we were entered we felt violated and helpless.
Seven years ago we purchased a manufactured home and placed it on the same property. Our builder recommended Brooks Security as a very dependable company so we decided to have Mr. Brooks design a security system for us. We were pleased with the result and contracted him to facilitate the installation. For six years we had no problems. There were a few calls and a deputy was dispatched to ensure the home was secure. This was a tremendous relief to us.
In May, 2013, the alarm system once again sounded and this one was real. Someone attempted an entry but was immediately scared off when the alarm sounded. The alarm went into central dispatch and officers were immediately dispatched. The offender was apprehended within an hour. This apprehension resulted in an end to a string of burglaries which had taken place in the area over the previous few months. The intruder was subsequently sentenced to a lengthy prison term and is currently behind bars in state prison.
We continue to have peace of mind that our property is well cared for with the Brooks Security system. We have friends who recently purchased property in the county and we have urged them to immediately purchase a good security system for safety and peace of mind. We would advocate that any property owner install a system. In summary, we are very pleased with Brooks Security and would recommend Mr. Brooks without reservation. We can now sleep soundly at night.
