Security Alarms & Camera Blog

Alarm sensors are specifically designed to detect movement in your home when no one should be there. Set up correctly motion detection sensors will react instantly if someone walks into the room activating the alarm and notifying neighbours or your alarm monitoring centre. This process which provides top-notch security for most houses can create big issues for homes with even the most sleepy inactive dogs, cats, or other indoor pets. The solution to this problem is actually really simple, install pet immune motion sensors. 

Did you know that there are over 200,000 burglaries recorded every year across Australia? 40,000 of the burgled homes are broken into more than once. That means that 20% of the 200,000 homes have the potential to be broken into again. With these statistics alone it is astonishing just how many houses still do not have home security alarms or devices. 

It can affect your insurance premiums, the property prices, what the shopping strip down the road looks like (security grills and roller doors or pot plants and picture windows) and so much more. The frequency of break-ins or general crime in the area you live can affect your lifestyle as well, but should we all be locking the doors, bolting the windows and hiding under the bed? 

Planning your home security system correctly could mean the difference between complete protection and allowing a thief to get into your home undetected. The good news is it's not hard to get it right. 

We are all at risk of break-ins, however, some have worked to reduce their risk and others have left it up to the deity of their choice, karma, or the universe for protection. A secure environment is essential for seniors to feel comfortable and safe in their homes, but doesn't need to mean bars on the windows, a mammoth rottweiler patrolling the garden, or a watch tower at your gate. 

Kevin McCallister (Home Alone) did a great job at keeping his home safe from unwelcome intruders but perhaps he could have been saved a lot of angst if there were more plants protecting his house from the outside 

Home security monitoring or back to base monitoring provides your home with an added level of protection, ensuring your family, home, and possessions are safeguarded 24/7 regardless of what you're doing or where you are. 

One man's trash is another man's treasure, or it's not what you have but the value you place on it. To one person grandad's old motorbike gathering dust in the back shed is worth little, to another, it's a vintage classic worthy of hours of loving restoration. When we value our possessions we take care of them, spend money and time on maintenance, and keep them in a safe, secure place. 

In the past, you had to hope the security screen was locked to provide a safeguard when strangers knocked on the front door. Simply opening the door, at worst involved taking a huge risk, or at best made you an easy target for door-to-door marketers. Simply installing an intercom system next to your front door or gate can avoid exposing your family or home to unwanted visitors unnecessarily. 

There is a huge range of dummy security cameras on the market. For a couple of dollars (or a little bit more), you can purchase a very realistic fake camera which can be easily positioned around your home or business to deter thieves, vandals or intruders.
