I have never been the type of person to worry about home security, mainly because I just didn’t think about it. I have lived in the same neighborhood on the outskirts of Sydney for most of my life, and it has always been a relatively quiet town. I don’t live in a bubble, so I was aware that crime was very much part of our daily life, but I still never thought to look into home security systems in Sydney since the majority of the crime happened a good distance from me.
Being on the outskirts of such a large city meant that everything is going to spread to the surrounding areas though. As new homes and businesses were built closer to us, it also meant that the negatives came along with that, which was mainly an increased crime rate. When there were a few home robberies in homes just a few miles from where my family and I live, I knew that I had to change my way of thinking. Gone were the good old days where I could leave my house unlocked when I was home, and here were the days where I had to start thinking about making my home less of a target for criminals.
I am really glad that I went with the company that I did, because they did a safety audit on my house for free. This was not just a basic audit, as it covered everything that exposed where my family was most vulnerable. They were able to custom design a system that is perfect for our needs. I don’t like that crime has moved into my town, but I am very thankful that we are being protected by a security system that alerts would-be thieves that they should pick an easier target than us!
