Improving home security

I’ve lived our whole life in a small farming community in the northeastern section of the country, and my husband plus I own plus work the same grape vineyards that belonged to his fantastic Grandpa.

  • Growing up in our rural area, no 1 ever sad about locking the doors to their house; The people I was with and I tended to leave our cars unlocked with the keys dangling from the ignition! Kids walked to each other’s houses plus we often held town barbecues, however over the years the safety of our small neighborhood has deteriorated.

There are frequently stories of tools being stolen out of garages, but a friend of ours had a dirt bike stolen, plus we believe various people who’ve had their cars broken into plus vandalized. About a year ago, there was a series of home invasions, however during the middle of the day, while almost everyone are at work, the robbers kicked in the doors of these houses plus grabbed anything of value that was straight-forward to carry. They stole currency, jewelry, ipads, blu ray players, Ipods plus all sorts of things. My home was 1 of those that was targeted, however coming home to find the front door wide open, dirty footprints across the carpet plus various of our possessions missing was devastating, i no longer felt safe in the house. My husband plus I instantly invested into a home security system. The people I was with and I now have surveillance cameras, outdoor lighting, window sensors plus automated door locks. If anyone tries to get into the locked home separate from the proper code, the alarm sounds. The local authorities are notified, plus our husband plus I receive a SMS message alert on our iphones. The people I was with and I also have real time footage of every angle of the property through the cameras.
