If your home does not have a security system it is more likely to be targeted. Lately we have noticed that criminals are getting more desperate and breaking into places with older or no security systems more often.
Protecting your home and family is a priority and these days it seems as though it’s only a matter of time before a security issue arises. An article in ‘The Australian’ on the 22nd Nov states that unemployment in some Melbourne suburbs is resulting in higher crime rates and more gang activity. It also says that some unemployed youths have been seduced by drugs so they are committing crimes to support their drug habits.
This news is extremely concerning to families and especially the elderly in these areas and it’s why we recommend getting a security system for your home. It will make your home less of a target and give you and your family that extra piece of mind whether you are home or away. Just knowing that you can press a duress alarm button on your keypad or keychain if there’s an issue can be a huge reassurance to many of our customers.
With recent advancements in security technology our alarm systems have become a lot more affordable. These days they are extremely reliable, easy to use and can be customized to suit any situation or budget. Even your basic security system can be expanded in the future with more sensors, smoke detectors, door and window sensors or HD CCTV cameras making it more affordable to start with the basics and upgrade over time. And don’t forget back-to-base monitoring of your security system can often reduce the home insurance premiums quite substantially.
