How many times have you heard that, a family leaves their home unattended and they get robbed? Well, doesn't it seem too often a case to hear of? If you ever wonder whether this can happen to you or not, well the frank answer would be YES, It can and no amount of insurance (if you actually have one) money can cover for all the objects of sentimental value that the thieves took. Even if you have insurance it will not pay for all your damages and if you don't have a receipt, you will never get coverage for those sentimental or even expensive gifts.
Burglaries and thefts are now slowly on the increase mostly due to new companies, who pay by mail for mailing in your surplus (stolen I mean) jewellery and unlike pawn shops the burglar is never caught on a surveillance camera and thus never actually caught. After breaking and entering the house, usually it is at the mercy of the burglar to take whatever he or she (yes, there are female burglars) likes, including cash, laptops, collectible items, antiques, electronics, etc. and with sites like eBay selling them becomes even more easy.
Having said all that, what happens when the breaking and entering happens when you are alone in your home? Or even your wife is alone at home? The fear of getting caught can easily provoke a burglar to cause bodily harm to the occupants and no amount of insurance money can cover those emotional scars.
From the above, it is more than clear by now that one's home needs to be protected against intrusions and burglary. The best and safest way to achieve this is to install a residential alarm system, as getting a dog for the problem may not be that safe either just because the dog can be neutralized with a doggy treats or even a tranquilizer. As it is not very uncommon for intruders to carry weapons you just don't want your guard dog to get hurt, do you?
Residential alarm systems work with wired or wireless signals to be sent to the alarm company to contact the police in case of any break-ins detected by the alarms. These alarms also create a lot of noise to confuse and disorient the intruder. Amidst the confusion and disorientation the burglar may just become afraid and leave. This alarm come in a lot of variety and fits every home and every budget nearly providing the same level of security to the home and its occupants.
