Let’s face it, everyone in the security business is really trying to sell clients the same thing—peace of mind. Sadly, we need that now more than ever before. Violent crime is up in US cities for 2016. A recent report noted that crimes such as homicide, rape, robbery, assault, and shootings are all ahead of pace to pass last year’s statistics. Major US cities have seen more than 1,000 robberies at the midway point of 2015 as they did at the midway point of 2016. People truly need peace of mind.
How Home Security Provides What People Need
Security is a two-way street for families, especially if both parents work and kids get off the bus by themselves. Kids need to feel the sense of security that comes from the automated system letting them know that the alarm is armed. Parents need the security that comes from getting a text message that says the alarm system was briefly turned off and back on right at about the time the kids should be getting off the bus.
Video Surveillance Improves Peace of Mind
For some, that may not be enough. Mom may want to access the home’s security cameras from a smartphone and make sure it was the children who entered the home and only the children. The family may enjoy vacation more if regular checks can be made to ensure the home is okay and the alarm system being deactivated and reactivated is just a family friend feeding the pets.
Comprehensive Security and Monitoring Is Growing Necessary
Whether we want to admit it or not, no one’s home is safe from invasion. The best thing we can do is be prepared and to make it as uninviting as possible for burglars and other criminals to choose our homes. Surveillance and monitoring systems tell criminals to try the next house down and make sure they pay the price if they choose a secure home anyway.
