Wireless Home Security To Protect You

Jan 30, 2008
Crime is always on the rise and home security has never been more important. Your home is at risk all the time but there is a rise in crime during hotter days as people become more and more careless with their home security. It is unbelievable that people still leave a spare key under the doormat or above the doorframe or even under a plant next to the front door. Thieves do check these obvious places for keys and if one actually saw get a key this way you can guarantee they will be round for a visit the next time you leave you home.

It's hot so you open a few windows but make sure you close them before you go out. Even if you have a burglar alarm system a thief can be in and out before the police get there. You also raise the chances of a false alarm if there is a gust of wind that moves a curtain, which is detected by an internal motion sensor.

Garden furniture and tools cost a lot of money and thieves know this as well. Make sure you keep it out of sight from passers by otherwise you might as well put a big sign on it saying 'I'm expensive come and steal me and don't forget to checkout the valuables inside' Try and give the thieves the impression there is nothing worth stealing and that if they do you have the security systems in place to prevent and catch them.

For simplicity and as a cheap solution a door entry system offers a quick way to protect your home. There are two types of door alarm, one is attached to the door with a small sensor at each side. Every time the door is opened the alarm goes off so you know someone has come in. The other option is a small battery operated motion sensor alarm, which can be placed above or aimed at the door.

This motion sensor can be places in a hallway, at patio doors or even slightly away from the door so that the children can come and go into the kitchen for drinks but if anyone went into another part of the house the alarm would go off.

The motion sensor mini alarm offers the easiest and quickest set up to improve the security in your home or business. Usually the sensors come with two settings so you can have a short chime to let you know someone has entered or continuous alarm so you know someone is somewhere they shouldn't be.

Another great way to use these mini sensors is on vacation so you know someone is not in your room whilst you are asleep. The last thing you want is to wake up with an intruder standing over you.

Most crime is committed by opportunist thief who will take any chance you give them to steal from you. If you do not give them the opportunity to make you a victim they will move on to someone who will. Remember it is better to prevent a crime, so call your local police station for crime prevention advice.
