Home Security: Do it Yourself with Home Security Products
There is no doubt among professionals in the law enforcement community that having some kind of home security system or security product is almost an absolute must in today’s society. It is not just your imagination that crime is on the increase. Property crime continues to be one of the most commonly perpetrated crimes in the country.
That industry generates over $60 billion a year in sales.
There are a few reasons why the industry is so big. One of the major reasons is because burglary is relatively easy to commit and there is not much punishment if you get caught. It is a high-reward low-risk crime. Just recently two men were caught red-handed at 2:30 in the morning with a bunch of stolen goods in their truck. The police caught them without a struggle and brought them to jail. The next day they were released on $1,000 bail. They had stolen over $10,000 worth of goods.
That’s not much of a deterrent if you ask me. But we digress. Home security products can get a little pricey. Here we are going to discuss some things you can do on your own; a do-it-yourself home security program.
You probably already know about all the basics about locking your doors and windows and trimming areas around lower-level doors and windows to eliminate hiding places. Well over half of all home burglaries occur through unlocked windows and doors. And as inexpensive as home burglar alarms are, starting at less than $10, under 10% of all homes are protected by this simple product.
But one of the best ways to stop a home burglary is to put some security cameras outside your home. Security cameras can act as a way to prevent a burglary in one way and another to catch the bad guys if they do break in.
Then to further the security of your home from burglars and burglaries how about putting up some signs in your front yard-signs warning of security cameras at the home?
Believe it or not, burglars pay attention to visual aids such as home security signs and and security cameras. They are two of the most successful tools you can use in your home security products toolbox.
Do the free things first and then spend some money to fortify your security with some signs and security cameras. Most important is you can do-it-yourself!
