Home security should be a top priority in our lives, unfortunately most of us pay little attention until it's too late. We live in a society were most of us are overworked, underpaid, and sleep deprived. How could we possibly have the time to worry out home security? Here are some eye opening statistics that emphasize why we can't afford not to take some security seriously.

  • A home burglary occurs about every fifteen seconds or over 5700 times each day!
  • The majority of home break-ins take place during the day (63%).

If you don't take measures to protect your home you are asking for trouble. The good news is there are home security products that are affordable, reliable, and extremely effective. Until recently consumers had little to choose from when it came to protecting their residences. Now the products are plentiful and excellent alternatives to expensive wired security systems. You can purchase a wireless security system with new emergency automatic dialing built in. This feature takes the place of expensive monthly monitoring fees. With automatic dialing, once the alarm is activated the system begins calling your pre-programmed emergency numbers. When the phone is answered on the other end they hear your pre-recorded emergency message. Most systems allow for up to five phone numbers and you can choose up to five different messages. You can customize your system by adding extra motion sensors and/or door and window sensors. Many of us live in apartments, town homes, dorms, or small homes and really don't need a large security system. In that case you should take a look at door and window alarms, mini motion sensors, glass breakage or vibration alarms, and steel door braces. These products are cost effective ways to secure smaller residences or even a small business. The technology they utilize is simple, but the bottom line is these products work to alert you of potential trouble while making the noise necessary to scare off most attackers. Take time today to secure the widows and doors within your home with a home security device. You will provide yourself and family with added peace of mind and greatly improve your chances of deterring a would be burglar.
