Why a home security system is all you need for Christmas!

TAGS: , , ,
Santa isn’t the only person looking to visit our homes in the wee hours of the night – the holiday season is also a prime time for burglars. Christmas time is a busy time in Australia. People usually leave their homes unattended for longer periods of time than normal. Everybody’s out shopping for food, buying Christmas presents, visiting families and even taking a holiday. Unfortunately for us, intruders see this busy time as a perfect opportunity to find something valuable by breaking into an unsuspecting home. According to a report by the Australian Institute of Criminology (AIC), break-ins are one of the most common crimes in Australia with around 335,700 burglaries recorded annually. It should be understood that although nothing in this world is completely secure, you can greatly reduce the risk to you and your family by taking a few necessary measures. Within the world of security, appearance plays an important role as a good deterrence. When it comes to your home environment, make sure you remember the basics such as keeping your windows and doors locked. This may seem obvious, but sometimes the holiday cheer can make people a bit more relaxed about the primary line of defense against intruders, i.e. locks. The second line of defense is a home security system. If your house is the only one on the street without a home security system, you automatically make yourself an easy target. Think like a burglar. On a street of 30 houses where all the houses except for one or two have a home security system, would you try and break into the secured houses...

Keep your plans private, and wait until you return to share the details. Plus you should also avoid posting/tweeting about where you are going and checking into places on Facebook and/or Twitter. Keri McMullen was still feeling the afterglow of success for accomplishing a 10K race earlier in the day when she posted an update on her Facebook account at around 6 p.m. It read: “Heading to the Hill with Kurt…to see Fire Department.” Kurt – her fiancé – and four of her friends went with her 2-and-a-half hours later to see a local group, Fire Department Band, perform at a bar just 10 minutes away from home. While they were enjoying the music, 2 men in hooded sweatshirts were in their home helping themselves to whatever valuables they could find. When Keri and Kurt finally returned home at about midnight, they immediately noticed the absence of their plasma TV. Next observation involved the laptops, which were now gone from the kitchen table where they last left them. When Kurt checked the surveillance footage from the CCTV camera he himself had installed, he confirmed what had just happened. The couple lost around $10,000 worth of property. Keri then posted another update on her Facebook – this time, about the burglary the night before. She included images of the perpetrators, taken from the video footage. What she got out of this was the confirmation that one of the suspects involved used...
