As professionals, we’re busier than ever and devoting more and more time to work. This means we are at home less, and our property and families could be vulnerable to thieves looking for an easy, untended mark. Your absence also leaves your home vulnerable to fire, flood, or other environmental events.
A lot of us are very busy, driving, working, emailing, texting, and on and on. In fact, according to a poll, American adults working full time put in, on average, 47 hours per week at their jobs. If you factor in commuting and errands, this means many adults are away from their houses 10–12 hours a day.
That doesn’t cover the times when we work overtime, on weekends, or travel out of town. Sometimes we don’t have any time to plan to cover security in advance. If you own your business, you may be out day and night, at unpredictable times, and virtually living out of your office or workspace.
Professional Solution to Security Challenges
One way to do this is to outsource the management and monitoring of your home to certified, proven professionals. Remember: there are such things as efficient, professional thieves who are looking for vulnerable homes to ransack.
Security professionals often work out of state of the art, industry-certified, high-tech enabled control rooms and are alerted to intruders in your home or the presence of heat or water. They can view the affected portion of your home via high resolution cameras and, if need be, contact first responders — and you. You can even watch your house via mobile phone video streaming, in real time. Don’t have time to be a professional security expert for your own property? No worries. You don’t have to be.
During work hours, do you often worry:
|“Did I remember to lock the garage door?”|
|“Am I wasting money right now by forgetting to turn off the heat and lights again?”|
|“Is the key I left for the house cleaner really secure under the doormat?”|
|“I need to replace the battery in the smoke detector! It was chirping all night!”|
If you can’t answer these questions, you have to either turn around and return home or live with uncertainty for the rest of the day. No one needs another distraction. Ideally, you want to just focus on your work and know your house and property are secure.
