I’ve lived my whole life in a small farming community in the northeastern part of the country, and my partner as well as I own as well as work the same grape vineyards that belonged to his wonderful Grandfather, then growing up in our rural area, no one ever upset about locking the doors to their house, but both of us tended to leave our cars unlocked with the keys dangling from the ignition, then kids walked to each other’s houses as well as we often held neighborhood barbecues, however over the years the safety of our small town has deteriorated, there are frequently stories of tools being stolen out of garages. A neighbor of ours had a dirt bike stolen, as well as we know several people who’ve had their cars broken into as well as vandalized. About a year ago, there was a series of home invasions, however during the middle of the day, while most people are at work, the robbers kicked in the doors of these houses as well as grabbed anything of value that was simple to carry. They stole currency, jewelry, iPads, blu ray players, Ipods as well as all sorts of things. My home was one of those that was targeted, then coming home to find the front door wide open, dirty footprints across the carpet as well as several of our possessions missing was devastating, i no longer felt safe in the house. My partner as well as I right away invested into a home security system. Both of us now have surveillance cameras, outdoor lighting, window sensors as well as automated door locks. If anyone tries to get into the locked house without the proper code, the alarm sounds. The local authorities are notified, as well as my partner as well as I acquire a SMS message alert on our iphones. Both of us also have real time footage of every angle of the property through the cameras.
