Importance of home security:

Our country South Africa, has the highest crime rate in the world. The annual quantity of murders in South Africa constantly surpasses the quantity of deaths in war ridden countries worldwide. Worst of all, our government seems unable to improve the state of affairs. No wonder that security of property is paramount in the mind of any prospective buyer of residential, commercial, industrial or vacation properties in South Africa.

Deficiencies in security can lower property values.

As animals do various things to provide security of their home, man being an animal is no different. He does a lot towards the improvement and security of his home. History shows that man from the beginning of time covered the entrance to their caves with large boulders, preventing any animal or rain, snow or any other severe effects of climate.

As time moved forward and he was able to train animals like dogs, he found a guard for his home. After the invention of doors, locks and keys, it made his home safer. But with the passage of the time, with the evolution of the human brain, there also came an increase in crime. A simple lock was not enough to protect his home. With the enhancement in technology, various new means of home protection was introduced.

According to a survey, forty percent of home burglars were able to enter houses due to the lack of secure locks and doors. Electronic locks with some sophisticated software provided the ability to track and access the locks. The user can open the lock connected to the network just by the click of a button. This kind of technology is widely used in offices and commercial areas.

Another outstanding progress made was the invention of the fingerprint door lock. These locks are designed to attain a very high level of security. Their sensors have the ability to recognize fingerprints. Biometric fingerprint Internet banking USB key, Biometric fingerprint time and attendance and Biometric fingerprint embedded modules are some of the stunning examples of fingerprint locks.

Grade 1 ANSI (American National Standard Institute) launched a wide variety in deadbolt locks for exterior usage such as the outer door or the door of the garage. Due to the increasing demand for ANSI locks, their replica products are also widely available in market. It is very difficult to distinguish between the real product and the duplicate, but they cannot provide a quality as that provided by ANSI locks.

Regardless of the type of lock, the quality of the door is very important. Its thickness, texture and lock selection play a key role in home security. The simplest and the most insecure lock is the knob lock. Deadbolts are of two kinds: internal and external. To secure the home with the best lock on the door is the cheapest way compared to other home security items such as alarms, cameras and security networking.

The Internet helps in the selection of an appropriate door along with the right lock for their homes. Many websites introduce the complete range of products in conjunction with their prices for any particular company. Many companies provide special offers to motivate people by fulfilling its demand with top quality products.

Statistics by the US bureau of Justice have revealed that thefts on property were at a staggering fourteen million and eighty three percent of these attempts were successful with the thieves entering the building or house located on the property.

The importance of a reliable home security system:

We live in a very insecure world, dominated by robbery and crime. Due to the pronounced differences between the classes of society, cultural conflicts and various other factors, worldwide crime rates have known an exacerbated increase in the last decades, rendering modern society a very unstable and unsafe environment. Every day we hear about all sorts of crimes, robberies and thefts, making us doubt the safety of our homes, possessions and even our lives!

People are feeling more and more insecure inside their homes these days and they reinforce their doors and windows, install extra door locks, and even buy guard dogs to provide them protection. However, it is very important to note that experienced robbers can easily break through to a wide range of home defences, the previously mentioned precautions only providing a false sense of security. In addition, recently conducted research has revealed that most burglaries and robberies take place while the owners are at home, exposing the home owners and their families to a serious risk!

In present, the only effective means to protect your home against robbers is to install a reliable home security system. Only after you have equipped your home with an efficient alarm system you can actually feel 100 percent safe inside your home. A house equipped with a modern, solid security system is definitely not an easy target for robbers. Even the most experienced robbers will think twice before breaking inside a house equipped with a modern security system. However, even if they break inside a house with a security system installed, robbers will trigger the alarm, alerting the local monitoring station and the police.

As soon as you order a home security system, a team will promptly deliver and install it for you. Home security systems are easy to use, allowing users to control a series of features via keypad. The security system is password-protected, requiring you to type in the previously established password before you can change the settings of the alarm system. After you have typed in your password, you can easily arm or disarm the alarm system, or change various specific settings. Once armed, the alarm will be triggered by any attempt of breaching inside the house. In order to ensure that your home is effectively protected, you should install motion detectors to every door and window of your house.

Home security systems are monitored non-stop by a local monitoring station. When the alarm is triggered, the security system will promptly signal the monitoring station and you will be immediately contacted on the phone by a member of the security team, in order to confirm whether your house has been breached or the signal has been triggered by accident. If you don’t answer the phone or give the incorrect password, the monitoring station will quickly alert the police.

A reliable home security system is a very effective means of protecting your home. As soon as you equip your house with a modern, effective security system, you are guaranteed maximum protection and ongoing monitoring for your home.
