Establishing a Family Break-In Plan

Posted by Bob Ryan

You think you know what you would do during a break-in, but do you really? Many people who have experienced one say that everything they knew went out the window when it happened to them. To make sure you don’t forget what you’ve learned, we recommend making a family plan. What does that mean?


Protect Your Home from 10 Minute Burglaries

Posted by Bob Ryan

It is true that most burglaries happen during daylight hours; many surveys, news sources and even government statistics confirm this. But does that mean you have to be away at work all day in order for a burglary to happen to your home? Not necessarily.

Do You Need to Replace Your Alarm System?

Posted by Bob Ryan

While the majority of home security companies also sell security cameras and video surveillance services, there are some video surveillance specialty companies (a.k.a. security camera dealers) that don’t offer alarms or alarm monitoring services. Those companies will tell you that this is a good thing – that because they specialize exclusively in video surveillance and don’t offer alarms, it makes them superior to a home security company that does both.
