As the summer winds down and the kids go back to school, now may be the time for a home security checkup.
The best way to secure your home is with an alarm system. Anytime you leave your house empty – to go to work, go on vacation or even run errands – it makes it an easy target for burglars. Law enforcement authorities will tell you a home with an alarm system is much less likely to be hit by would-be criminals. Most bad guys will pass by a home that has an alarm system. An unprotected house nearby is an easier target. Burglars don’t want to get caught. Their goal is to get in and out quickly without being noticed.
While some people believe that most home break-ins occur when it’s dark, burglaries are more common during the day. Anyone trying to get ready for work and get your children off to school knows how hectic mornings can be. Make sure you don’t forget to take steps to secure your home before you leave for the day. Arm your system and lock up when you leave for the day. Check your windows as well. It does no good to arm your system then leave a window open. It’s also wise to make sure that everyone in your home knows how to secure the alarm system when they leave. Delco Alarm specialists can assist you in installing an effective security system, even for busy families with a variety of schedules.
Monitor Your System
Cameras provide another layer of security creating a safe environment for your family. Today’s smart camera systems are easy to use and give you the ability to monitor them from anywhere using your smartphone. You can also keep an eye on children who are old enough to be at home alone for a bit. As a parent, it’s comforting to know that your children arrive home safely. You can also make sure the doors to your home are locked behind them using an app on your smartphone. Most bad guys don’t want to end up on someone’s video surveillance at the scene of the crime.
