ANAHEIM, Calif., June 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Summer is here and you may be getting ready to take advantage of the warming weather by going on vacation. However, do you wonder what might happen at your home while you're away?
The last thing anyone should have to worry about while on vacation is the security of their home and personal belongings. Unfortunately, according to the Insurance Information Institute, "There are more than 2.15 million burglaries each year, over 65% of which are residential break-ins, with the majority occurring in the peak vacation months of July and August."
The best way to avoid becoming a statistic is to protect your home before you leave. One option is a security system, which alerts a company if your home has been broken into. However, a security company may fall short if police or a patrol car is unable to respond quick enough to stop a burglary. Also monthly fees and penalties for false alarms can add up.
Another option is a surveillance system, which acts as a deterrent when cameras are spotted by a would-be burglar and it also provides proof to identify and prosecute a burglar. Some surveillance systems now come with remote monitoring so you can see what is happening at anytime from anywhere. Also, if there is unusual activity you can immediately receive text and email notifications so you can see for yourself exactly what is happening and alert authorities or a neighbor.
Surveillance cameras also help you keep an eye on cats or other pets as well as on anyone you have asked to enter your home to water plants or feed animals. The best part is that Q-See provides surveillance systems that are quite affordable and easy to install and operate.
In addition to securing your home with surveillance cameras, check with your insurance company as they often provide useful tips, such as placing valuables in safe deposit box, setting timers for lights, asking a neighbor to keep an eye out for suspicious activity, and more.
