Safety is something you can never assume. You can’t assume that you’re safe or that your home is always secure. You can’t assume that your loved ones are safe back home. You can’t leave security to chance, you have to find ways to ensure that your home and family are indeed safe.
One way to do that is to install and operate a reliable home security system. Various studies have established the correlation between burglary and the presence of an alarm system. In a recent research by the news agency KTVB, 86 convicted burglars were interviewed on how they break into a home and what they consider as major deterrents. Generally, burglars agreed that home security devices were a deterrent and that when an alarm goes off, they would leave immediately.
