It was 0300 for me when the house alarm went off. Oh what a thrill it was. My son was communicating to me as he came down stairs and I came from the master bedroom across the house. At that time the alarm panel was located in the kitchen. A frightfully log way when you hear the alarm. Anyway as I made it to see what set the thing off my son thought he saw something move on the back porch. By the way it was set off by the back door being pulled on. There was wet foot prints coming and going on the sidewalk leading to the door. He went looking into the night for a boogie man but I new whoever it was, was long gone from there.
Now there is a second control in my bedroom so I know instantly what has set the alarm off. There is also a nice new Remington 12 gauge pump sitting by the bed.
