Halloween is over but you don’t need a scary costume to keep burglars away. All you need is a smartphone – which most people have – and a smart home security system, which is easy to get and even easier to use. Once you have both, you’re equipped to keep your home safe from trespassers year-round. Here’s what they can do together.
Prevent Crimes of Opportunity
A burglary might seem like a planned event – but most of the time, they are mere crimes of opportunity. A criminal notices small breaches in home security and takes advantage of them, like an open garage door or an unlocked window. But if the homeowner has a smart home security system, then he or she receives a text alert to their phone when those breaches have occurred. They close the door, lock the window, and move on – and, fortunately, so does the burglar.
Provide Long Term Fortification
Your house may only look haunted for Halloween, but a smart home security system keeps it safe from burglars year-round. If they attempt a break-in, the audible alarm will scare them away – if they even make itthat far. Much of the time, a burglar will decide to leave as soon as they see the keyless entry system. And if there’s a doorbell camera, the homeowner can spook them by talking to them through the speaker. He flees, and word spreads that this house is not one to mess with.
