I honestly never felt the need to have a security system installed in my home. I thought that my community was safe and that my home would never be a target for a burglary. Unfortunately, last year, I took my family on a wonderful 2 week vacation and came home to a disaster. Someone had broken into our home and went through everything and damaged almost everything that they didn't take. That was when I had a security system installed. If you think that you are safe from this type of crime, take it from me - it can happen. Use the tips on my blog to find a home security system that will help decrease the chances of home burglaries and help to identify the thieves if it does happen.
