Where I live it has never really been thought of to ensure that your home is safe, per say. Back in the days of growing up, I recall the door of our home being left unlocked all of the time, windows were unlocked and it was simply a trust thing around that time in my world. Since growing up and becoming a parent of my own three children, I have become a bit more paranoid or OCD to be exact about ensuring my home, my children, my dog and my belongings are as safe as I feel them to be.

Some things that people pick on me about is that I have to check all doors and windows frequently in my home to ensure they are locked tight, this usually occurs at end of day or prior to leaving my home. The kids roll their eyes and want me to hurry but I can not leave without knowing I have locked down my home, every single time.

There are other ways to keep your home safe while you are away, sleeping or working in your home office, shut off from the real world. One could use a home security system.  There are so many options available these days to the average home owner to ensure they can find a home security system that works for their needs and budget. From wired to a wireless surveillance camera system, there is a choice for every type of person and family.  Knowing that my home is secured by a device I can access from outside of the home and monitors not only my home but maybe windows being opened or broken really helps me to feel safer.

It is so funny that I grew up in an era where people were still leaving cars and houses unlocked yet now, in this day and age, it seems everyone has become more paranoid, locked down and the sense of community trust has been lost due to the financial struggles of those who have turned to being thieves to support their families or those who simply are just criminals who don’t seem to know better than to be thieving from others.  No matter who you are, where you live and what type of community that you live in, rest assured that there are many home security camera system options out there to make you feel a bit more at ease when leaving your home unattended.

Tell me, have any of you used a home security system before, how did that work out for you? Did you choose a wired or wireless setup?

    We had one when we first moved into the house, then we disconnected it, but ended up activating it again with a different provider. I’d rather be safe than sorry.
