Why Are Home Security Systems Becoming a Must? Las Vegas Nevada

A few decades ago home security systems where a luxury. Something only the wealthy really needed or could afford, today that has changed. With crime rates on the rise and no relief in sight, we are all well advised to have a home security system installed. Even if you’re living in an area where you feel safe, there’s no guarantee that you and your family won’t become victims. That’s why it is so important to do all you can to prevent this.

What does a Home Security System Protect?

Home Security Systems have become more affordable and are no longer limited to sounding an alarm to deter burglars from their dirty deeds; they have become much more sophisticated and therefore, more effective. Of course, you will still have the alarm sounding and that’s a good thing, after all studies have shown that thieves will spend less time gathering your belongings if an alarm should go off.

Another good reason for a home security system is that burglars usually canvas the house they plan on breaking into and they much prefer it to be one without an alarm system so they can go about their business undeterred.

The System I had installed by ADT Security Las Vegas, Nevada is monitored and, in case of a security breach, they contact the police and my family making the reaction time much quicker. But it’s not limited to burglary; the system also monitors the smoke, CO2 and fire detectors, alarming the fire department, and my family, in case of an emergency. Because, let’s face it, there isn’t always going to be someone home when things go wrong, and it’s good to know someone has your back. If you follow the ADT link above you can also get a very up to date and helpful crime breakdown for Las Vegas.

Watch Out What You Talk About on Social Media
Telling friends you’re going on vacation is something you should do in person; face to face. If you or one of your family members posts something like this on Facebook you can never be sure where your information ends up. It might be passed on to someone that’s just waiting for this kind of Intel. Make sure your children are aware of the dangers. It’s important to explain to them why posting personal information can have dire consequences.

Getting that new large screen 3D TV for your renovated living room is just so exciting you had to take a picture and post it on your Myspace page. This is also a no-no. The more you show what you have, the higher the risk you run of waking interest in the undesirables, that want nothing more than to relieve you of your possessions. Your husband gave you a diamond pendant for your anniversary and that’s great just don’t share it online. Your friends will see it when they come to visit, just like that new TV.

Your family and their safety are your top priority and, as you can see, you can do quite a bit to make that happen. The most important thing is being aware of your surroundings and of what is going on in the world. After that it’s mostly applied common sense. One of my favorite quotes by an unknown author: “The door to safety swings on the hinges of common sense. “ Stay safe my friends!
