How to Buy a Brinks Yard Sign
For an authentic Brinks yard sign, you’ll need to purchase a Brinks home security system. Each system comes with a yard sign and decals. While there are fake Brinks yard signs that you can find online, it’s better to go with authentic ones. Each additional Brinks yard sign and decal package costs $9.95. You can purchase additional decal sheets for $2.00. There is a limit to the number of yard signs and decals you can purchase in a year: 4 signs and 16 decals respectively.
Does a Brink Yard Sign Deter Burglars?
We can’t guarantee that a Brinks yard sign will deter burglars, but one may help. According to one study conducted with over 400 burglars, “security signs were the 9th most considered security measure.” There are additional measures you can take to make burglars think twice about approaching your home. We don’t, however, recommend using fake yard signs and decals because some burglars are savvy and can tell the difference.
Where Should I Place My Brinks Yard Sign?
For homeowners, you should place your yard sign in the front of your yard at the end of the driveway. For decals, we suggest placing them at eye-level starting on the first floor of your home, preferably in prominent locations like on your front door or a front window.
If you’re a renter, we recommend placing a Brinks decal on your door.
For business owners, we suggest placing the yard sign near your store or office building’s entrance. Add any decals to exterior doors or front windows.
Consider a Complete Brinks Home Security System
While a Brinks yard sign can let passersby and visitors know you’re protected, you’ll still have a gap without a full home security system. With Brinks professional monitoring, a team of specialists will be standing by in event your alarm is triggered so you can be notified and the authorities dispatched if necessary. You can also try out a Brinks system for 30 days to see if their services fit your needs.
