07 Dec Keep Your Home Safe This Holiday Season
As the holidays swing into full gear and shopping increases, so do burglaries. Statistics show that home and business break-ins occur every 13 seconds, and that statistic greatly increases throughout the holiday months. That is why it is more important than ever to keep your family and home safe. Here are some great examples of ways to ensure your family’s safety over the holiday months:
- Exterior lighting
Exterior lighting is a great way to deter burglars. By installing outdoor flood lights with motion sensors you are illuminating additional lights onto your yard, and hopefully scarring off any unwanted crooks. The Ring Floodlight Camera takes the outdoor lighting system to the next level by incorporating a camera on the flood light; offering the home owner peace of mind to be able to watch the exterior of their home from any smart device.
Cameras may not keep a crook from breaking into your home, but it is an excellent way to record and catch the person. One fairly inexpensive home security camera which is gaining popularity is the Ring Video Doorbell Pro. Much like the Ring Floodlight Camera, the Ring Video Doorbell allows the user to watch the perpetrator from any smart device. So whether you are in your home or down the shore, you can rest assure that you are able to catch any criminal.
- Burglary System
Burglary Systems are an excellent way to protect what matters most during the holiday season and year-round. The 1 Touch AVS Interactive security and home automation system is designed and built to provide a single integrated solution that keeps your most important things – your home and your family – safe. The Interactive Panel combined with Alarm.com mobile applications provide full access and control to your locks, lights, thermostat, and sockets no matter where you are. You can monitor your house from your car, the office, your vacation home, or any other location.
- Smart home technology
Smart home technology is another great way to make sure your home is protected this holiday season. Whether you are installing automatic interior lighting or motorized blinds, making it look like someone is home is key to keep burglars at bay.
