When it comes to issues dealing with safety I do not take this topic lightly. A family should be able to feel safe in their home and not threatened in any manner. This is one of the main reasons why I have decided to create a website dedicated to home security. I was the victim of a home invasion and I strongly believe that my home security systems played a role in saving my family and myself. I am a divorced women and live alone with my children. I want people to know how important it is that they protect themselves and the different options that are available to them.
About a year ago I was going to be on a weekend night. I have too small children in the home and they had been asleep for hours at this time. I was getting comfortable and was just about to doze off when I say my security lights turning on outside. This did get my attention but I did not think too much of it right away. The next thing I know I hear the sound of breaking glass. Then I hear the sound of my alarm going off. At this point I was scared. I grabbed my phone and went into the children’s room. We got down on the floor. It seemed like an eternity but within a couple of minutes I heard sirens from the police. They entered the home and verified that everyone was okay. I told them about what I heard and they looked around the home for more information.
Another office came in and said they caught the potential robber a couple of blocks away. He had on dark clothing. When they further searched him they said they found a knife and some rope in his possession. I do not even want to think about what may have happened to my family if it had not been for my alarm system.
