Why You Need to Level Up Your Security
Did you know that 30 per cent of burglaries in the United States happen because of an open window or a door left unlocked? According to statistics, more than half off the burglaries happen at residential properties. This crime is labelled as the most common threat to homeowners, and households without advanced security systems are three times more likely to be a target for burglars roaming around sneaking, looking for a good house.
We know that installing security systems would cost you a sum of money, but learning how useful this system is would put your worries to rest! Peace of mind that is something you cannot usually pay for. In Singapore, CCTV installation has been a popular safety measure both for businesses and residential areas.
How Safe Is Safe?
Most break-ins occur during office or school hours when the parents are already on the road to come in for work and the kids have gone to school. Burglars eye these unoccupied houses, especially if these houses are along their usual escape routes. In Singapore, however, these gate crashers pass by houses that have an alarm or CCTV installed.
Because Anyone Can Own a Set of Lock Picks
Also, intruders choose houses that do not require too much tools or equipment to get inside. Backyards and backdoors that only use traditional locks are to easier to pick than you think! Since owning a set of lock picks are legal, it is so handy to buy one, carry it around, and use it for illegal purposes.
In fact, lock picking has been considered as a cool hobby. Some people have picked their first lock in less than three minutes!
Top 5 Reasons Why You Need an Added Security
1. So you make it hard for thieves to easily break in and steal.
Apart from metal doors, heavy-duty deadbolts, strike plates, and high-quality door locks, you may use an advance home alarm systems. This way, you do not just prevent burglars from stealing or doing something malicious inside your homes, you increases the chances of getting them caught.
2. So You Protect Your Household from Fire
Home alarm systems do more than just spot break-ins. These devices allow you to monitor other threats like smoke, fire, and flood. Receiving these alarm notifications can help you think what to do early on so you can prevent or alleviate the damage these environmental threats might do to your properties.
Home alarms can also warn your family inside (and the authorities) when there is heavy smoke. It is so smart it can detect the smoke’s source!
3. So You Avoid Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
Cooking stoves, charcoal or burning wood, home heating systems, and gas ranges release a chemical called carbon monoxide. It is a toxic chemical that comes from a colorless and odorless gas. Hence, it cannot be noticed by human senses.
5. So You Can Continuously Monitor Your House
Of course we cannot watch over our house every day and go around inspecting every nook and cranny for smokes and fire. In Singapore, HD CCTV and alarm systems take care of this tedious task when we cannot do it our own. It is like buying our relief when we have to go on a vacation with no one manning the house!
