Did you know that according to the FBI, a burglary occurs every 15 seconds. Are you surprised to learn that most intruders will enter the front door of your home? According to the FBI Crime Report, 34% will use the front door, 23% of intruders will enter through a first floor window. 22% will use the back door and 9% the garage entrances. Are you protected?
Growing up in the 1970′s we would have thought nothing about leaving the door unlocked when we left home or even when we went to sleep. We felt secure in our neighborhood, but the twenty-first century is a lot different then back in the 70′s and with crime on the rise, friends and families are turning to Home Security Products to protect their loved ones and their property.
I started thinking about Home Security products when I moved to my new home in 2006. I was downsizing from a large home in the country that I had lived in for 16 years to a home in town. Within 1 week of moving in, my home was burglarized. It turned out to be a 15-year-old neighbor who was eventually prosecuted, but ever since I have been using Home Security products to protect my family and property.
One of the things I immediately installed was a door alarm on the front and back. Now mind you, it wasn’t a real expensive unit, but it has done the job. Lately, I’ve been thinking about installing additional home security products, so when I had the opportunity to check out the Home Security Store online, I discovered some products that were one affordable, two easy to install and three come with excellent customer/technical service support.
At the Home Security Store you will find Home Security products to meet your every need, like window and door alarms, security surveillance cameras, motion detectors, driveway alarms, security lights, home automation products, environmental controls, video baby monitors, and they even carry child locator’s if God forbid your child goes missing. And one thing I was surprised to see that they carried are survival kits. These survival kits are perfect if you live in an area with hurricanes, tornadoes or just want to be prepared for a disaster situation no matter where you live.
While browsing the Home Security Store for a while, I ran across something I’ve been meaning to purchase since I’ve moved to my new home six years ago and I hate to admit, just plain forgot about. An emergency ladder for my second story window. I found the First Alert Fire Escape Ladder for $49.99. A small price to pay for something that could save my family’s life. I especially need it now more than ever since my daughter is having a baby and will be living in the upstairs bedroom.
And mentioning the baby, I checked out the Baby Monitors. They carry some with video monitoring and some without. I’m adding the Levana one to my wish list. (LV-TW501 Levana Advanced Digital Wireless Video Baby Monitor). This baby is the BMW of baby monitors. Some of its features include:
- ClearVu(R) Digital Wireless Technology
- Temperature Monitoring to Ensure Safety
- Talk-to-Baby Intercom
- 5 Soothing Lullabies
- Night Vision
- Relaxing Night Light
- Sound Activated Vibration
