HomeSecuritySystems HQ has produced an article providing valuable advice on personal security for single women living alone.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) December 24, 2012
More women than ever are living alone. Therefore, more women than ever are potentially at risk. A recent survey article by HomeSecuritySystems HQ covered this topic in detail outlining the steps that can be taken to make a home more safe.
A home occupied by a single woman is often a target for burglaries due to two primary reasons. First, forced entry might be easier due to lax security. Secondly, women often possess valuables worth a considerable amount of money.
The primary idea for securing any home is to install a reliable home alarm system. With the present technology, home alarms can be high tech and accompanied by motion sensors or merely comprised of wireless components working together.
In this recently published article, customers, especially women, are advised to go with a wireless system for ease of mind and added security. Wireless systems offer top of the line security and exciting features such as live monitoring for the Android, iPhone and Blackberry and instant security text alerts. But, merely having a wireless security system is not enough. Users should also always search for home security reviews online prior to making any purchase.
Another way to further deter burglars is to hang signs around the house stating that automatic detection systems are in operation. Windows and doors should also be secured. Making windows unbreakable or door locks impenetrable is very simple for a nut and bolt expert. Homeowners should always inspect their house for possible entry points and ensure that these are adequately protected.
But it´s not only the entry points which need to be secured. When burglars find reinforced doors and windows, they often try alternate paths leading into the house, for example, a garage or a basement, which is usually connected to the rest of the house in some way. Readers are advised to keep in mind that these can become potential vulnerabilities in the security arrangements and take adequate measures to ensure this does not happen. As the article by HomeSecuritySystems HQ points out, even putting up a perimeter fence or other barrier around the house can help lessen the chances of an incident.
A final tip is to always keep a one-touch access to the required authorities in case of need. During an incident, it might not be possible to dig out the phonebook, find a number and alert them. Always keep a shortcut to contact them in the least time possible. Last but not least, always keep a control mechanism handy. As the article points out, it never hurts to keep a pepper spray nearby.
