Residents of a home on the 400 Block of Glosser Street in East Pittsburgh can thank their lucky stars that they weren’t home when three armed burglars arrived to rob them. Authorities arrived promptly on the scene, attesting to the importance of well-informed police force as well as neighborhood watch. But when no one’s around to catch criminals, surveillance cameras can be your eyes and ears and protect you and your family from harm.
These women took their lives into their own hands when they fought back against the criminals who attempted to rob their home. One of the criminals was armed and dangerous. If an alarm system had alerted authorities when their property was first invaded, this entire situation could have been avoided as the suspects were all outside. Don’t wait for something like this to happen to you.
This is a dangerous situation that could have escalated quickly. You never know if and when someone is casing your home, though there are several steps you can take to detect them from considering you for a crime. Well-placed—particularly motion-activated—lighting goes a long way, alerting would-be burglars that you’re home and your house is well-secured. Wireless systems with the latest sensor technology put you on the early alert as well. Plan for the unexpected ahead of time and you’ll be glad you did.
It’s a fact that the world we live in is oftentimes cruel and unfair. Home security companies are aware that seniors need different services, and are prepared with special products that add an extra layer of safety. From fall alerts to timed light systems, step-by-step instructions and custom installations make security convenient for your older loved ones.
