Dial One Security is seeing continual theft of copper pipes, copper and aluminum wiring, and air conditioning coils. We can not stress how important it is to keep your alarm systems functioning and tested. In my business we get calls everyday due to copper theft in Cincinnati.
Once a building has its copper pipes stolen, and/or its electrical wire, and/or the furnace or air conditioning coils, its can make a building worthless. In our local community of Madisonville we currently have a dilapidated housing problem. Houses that cost more to fix then just tear down.
Newer alarm systems do not even need phone lines and are perfect for buildings that are currently not occupied.
Let us know if you need any information in how to protect your buildings.
