Using A Home Security System Protects Your Neighborhood Too
October 10th, 2019
According to the most recent FB survey, every 23 seconds a home gets burglarized. One out of every 35 homes will be robbed. These statistics are frightening unless you are prepared. One of the best ways to keep your home and your loved ones safe and secure is installing a home security system.
Many Benefits Of Home Security For You And Your Neighbors
When you install a home security system you experience all the advantages of your investment. Some advantages include decreasing threat of robbery, reduced homeowners' insurance costs and more importantly peace of mind. However, your family is not the only one that benefits from your home security system. Your neighbors will too.
Three Ways Your Neighbors Will Benefit From Your Home Security System
There are several ways that your home security system will benefit your neighbors. Here are just the top three:
1. Increased Awareness:
When you install a home security system, it becomes known throughout the neighborhood. Criminals are known to survey particular neighborhoods to determine the best house and method to break in. If a burglar sees that there is a security system in the neighborhood they tend to not only avoid that particular house but also the rest of the houses in the neighborhood. You may find your neighbors asking about your security system and it may even motivate them to install one of their own.
2. Improved Lighting:
Any dark areas are magnets for intruders. The sensible thing to do is to reduce darkness by increasing your lighting. When you increase the visibility around the perimeter of your home, it also can lighten your neighbor's yard. Motion sensor lights also help uncover any activity outside the home at night. When motion is detected the lights go on, which in turn alerts the homeowners and also can alert the neighbors. If your lights turn on and your neighbors see it, they will know someone is out there.
3. Enhanced Monitoring:
Surveillance equipment such as outdoor cameras can monitor your driveway, backyard or front of your home, and can also capture parts of your neighbor's property. Your outdoor cameras may not just catch what is happening on your property but often overlaps to your neighbors as well. There are many reports all over the United States documenting how one neighbor’s surveillance camera was able to capture footage of a neighbors home being broken into
