Part One

A reliable and dependable home alarm system equipped with indoor and outdoor security cameras and alarm monitoring is your best defense against someone who tries to break into your home.  Let’s face it, if a criminal wants to break into your home bad enough, nothing will stop them from trying, which is why a home alarm system and alarm monitoring is so important. That being said, there are strategies you can use to deter some criminals.  Let’s take a look:

Install Deadbolt Locks

While it may sound simple, a deadbolt lock is one of the best ways to keep a criminal from entering through an exterior door. Our smart home systems have options to install smart locks with deadbolts which can be controlled by a mobile app on your smartphone.

See Who is At the Door

Always check to see who is at the front door, even if you are expecting company.  Our smart home automation systems and outdoor security cameras make it easy to monitor people who enter your property and allow you to see who is at your front door without having to look out the window or use the peep hole.

Leave Blinds Closed When Not Home

Keeping your blinds closed when you are not at home makes it more difficult for potential burglars to determine which rooms have valuable items, whether there are any pets in the house, etc.
