Electronic Security Specialists & Cabling (ESSC) has released the first four chapters of their highly anticipated new e-Book titled Peace of Mind and Home Security: Make Sure Time is on Your Side. Real Security & Peace of Mind = Perceived Risk + Time + Difficulty. This formula illustrates the different parts of securing a home.
After reading this book, one can assess their own home security needs. The first four chapters cover perceived risk, effective diversions, and types of home security systems.
When considering the best options for securing a home, the perceived risk that the intruder will be caught or harmed is crucial. Knowing that the majority of burglaries occur while no one is home, making visible signs from the outside is important. Things like home security stickers and/or a dog are things that deter burglaries.
Secondly, time is on your side and making it costly to break into the home are important factors in protecting and securing the home. A safe that has a TL 30 classification would take longer to break into, therefore making the potential for the burglar to be caught more likely, especially if the home security system calls and notifies a UL central listing system. The longer it takes to finish the burglary, the less likely the thief will be successful.
Chapter 4 covers security systems. Understanding the terminology such as wireless vs cellular alarm system will help avoid confusion when deciding on an alarm system. Knowing the differences between things like a panic button or an interior siren, which notifies not only the central station, but also allows the burglar to know they have been caught is definitely helpful when choosing the right security system. The book states, “Once the intruder knows he’s been detected, he also knows that his risk of being caught or hurt have increased.” Another thing to take into careful consideration is that these security systems can help to protect people from not just burglaries, but also fires, which are a common source of personal property damage and loss.
