Fight Back Against Violent Home Intruders Who Kill Dogs!!

Another family dog gets killed in a violent home burglary in South Bend, Indiana.  Homeowners please don’t rely upon your dog(s) to provide the security protection for your home.  This new wave of home burglars and home invasion intruders are violent - and they are carrying guns. They also have NO QUALMS ABOUT KILLING YOUR DOG - and that might even include YOU if you get in their way!!

Protect Your Home With Impenetrable Home Protection

Set up a home security plan and begin protecting your home and family with top level protection that includes a security system.  Build an impenetrable level of protection around your home so intruders aren’t able to come right the front door or one of your windows!!

Do it now!! There is absolutely no excuse for not having a security system in our current economy.  Many people don’t realize it doesn’t take thousands of dollars for a good quality home security system.  Right now you can setup some simple common-sense protection around your home by going to your local hardware store. (Click simple common-sense link for info).

Fight back and protect your home, family and your pets.  These criminals are CRAZY VIOLENT and it doesn’t appear that crime is slowing down - especially as we head into the holidays.  (A time when it usually gets worse). Remember, desperate people do desperate things - however, I think these criminals actually enjoy what they are doing.  HEARTLESS DIRTBAG PUNKS!!

I  wrote an article on Friday the 13th about a sheepdog who was killedpet-sheepdogr2 when burglars broken into a home in South Bend, Indiana.  After these punks ransacked the home and ripped off the homeowner’s electronics and other valuables, they shot and killed the crippled sheepdog.

Then a few days later two family dogs were shot and killed during another burglary in South Bend.  Imagine coming home to find out your home has been broken into and all your valuables stolen.  That would be hard enough to fathem.  But on top of that the burglars shot your dogs as they made a clean break!  Heartless criminals!!

Home burglary and home invasion robbery crimes are plaguing neighborhoods all across the country.  Law enforcement officials can’t be everywhere so we need to personally take action to ensure our home and family are safe 24/7.  You can do that!!  There are effective steps and actions you can implement that will give you tremendous peace of mind. 

Be proactive and start today by implementing these actions!!

Burglars Ransack Home & Kill Family Dog

November 13, 2009 by admin  
Filed under Home Security Headline News

The morning South Bend Tribune headline news reads - BURGLARS KILL SHEEPDOG.  The homeowner came home in the mid-afternoon on Monday only to find his home totally ransacked by burglars and his beloved eight year old sheepdog had been shot and killed.

These are the lowest of the low-life criminals who would kill a dog - especially one who was not considered an aggressive animal.  The homeowner stated that his dog was not aggressive and when he sensed aggression in people, he would get a toy to play together with. (Picture courtesy of South Bend Tribune).

Don’t think just because you have a pet dog that you are totally secure.  A good barking dog is definately a part of the deterrent value, but don’t rely solely on your pet.  Violent home intruders can easily disgard your pet with one swift kick or with a single shot. During my 20 years as a security consultant I told many homeowners that a pet dog and an alarm system is actually pretty good protection.

If you haven’t started your security protection, start now before the holiday season begins.  Protect your home by installing a security system and implementing protection strategies that will make your home impenetrable to these violent home burglars and criminal intruders. 

When we leave home, our dog Rocky is always well-protected.  The security system is for him as much as it is for protecting our home.  These criminals are rotten, maniacal low-lifes who don’t care who or what gets in their way. They will use whatever force it takes to do their job and that is usually with a lethal weapon.

If you haven’t installed a security system already, be proactive and protect your home and family starting today.

Does Your Home Security Plan Include A Safe Room? Part I

November 7, 2009 by admin  
Filed under Home Security Headline News

pic-of-action-plan-8-19-08rDo you have a plan of action in the event you are a victim of a home burglary or violent home invasion robbery while at home?  I would venture to say that most people don’t!  It is a good idea to have a Home Security Plan that includes a Safe Room in case someone forcibly enters your home while you and your family are there.  The general intent of a safe room is to provide short-term protection for you and family members until the police arrive or the attackers leave your home.

It is a fact of life today that burglaries, home intrusions, home invasions, and kidnappings are happening at an alarming rate.  We are all encouraged to have a Personal Plan of Action in case we are attacked on the street but we sometimes forget to have a well-thought out plan for some sort of attack in our home.

Home intruders want what you have - MONEY!

Right now times are tough.  The economy is in the tank and people are out of work, losing jobs each and every day, and drug-related crimes are on the rise.  Flat out – CRIMINALS WANT WHAT YOU HAVE – and that’s your MONEY!!  And criminals will take it from you easily or with violent force if they have to.  You need to be prepared and make sure that you aren’t the recipient of this violent force.

Are you a “high risk” individual who may become a potential target of a home invasion robbery, a kidnapping, or a home burglary?  There are many professional criminals, thug gangs, or desperate home intruders who may find it “easy” to target a bank executive or manager, high profile personalities, or executives of local businesses.  If you fall into a high risk category or profile, one of your first priorities should be to ensure you have a well-protected home with a quality security system and a designated Safe Room within your home to retreat to.   

The very thought that someone would forcibly enter your home while you and your family members are there means the intruder(s) is serious about robbing your home either of your possessions, valuables, money, or worse yet - kidnapping.   When you are face to face with the intruders and can identify them means there is a possibility you may be harmed or even killed. 

The typical way criminal intruders will enter a home is violently right through the front door in teams of 2/3/4 at a time may.  Once inside and after apprehending family members some intruders have been known to take an adult family member to the local ATM machine and have them withdraw money from a credit card and/or a bank account.
 
Hopefully this situation will never happen to you, but in today’s violent crime ridden society my suggestion would be to take every precaution you can to prevent this crime from ever happening to your family.  Be proactive by having and following a home security plan of action.

You may want to implement optimum perimeter protection strategies for the perimeter of your home - i.e. stronger doors, ultimate deadbolts, solid door frames, windows, etc.  This will make it much more difficult for just a swift kick or a 250 lb shoulder to force in your front door.  

Do you have an Early Alert Warning System covering your outside perimeter?  Wouldn’t you want to know ahead of time that you have unwanted visitors at your front door, back door, or garage entry area?  A   Voice Alert System will let you know when someone is within a certain radius of your home where you have designated outdoor sensors set up.   You might also include an outdoor video surveillance cameras and monitor these cameras with an indoor monitor or via your cell phone or computer.
 
Where is the best location for your Safe Room?

The Safe Room that is part of your home security plan is a defensive core area of your home that is most likely the safest place for you and other family members to escape to in a home break-in or home invasion.  It is vital that you plan ahead of time what you and other family members will do in this situation.  If a break-in occurs while you and your family are home try to remain calm and retreat to your safe room, lock the door, and call the police for help.

The room you select may be the main bedroom in your home.  (Or it couldcw-solid-core-door-safe-roomr be a main bathroom or closet location).  Whatever location you decide, check the doors to this room for strength and ability to withstand a major kick or forced entry.  Believe me it will be the intent of the intruders to find you.  These doors, like your main entry door, should be solid hardwood or metal core doors and should be hung so they open outward.  Replace the wooden doorjamb with a steel one or reinforce the door trim with steel angle iron to prevent the door from being kicked open.  On wood door jams, install three-inch screws in the door hinges and in the heavy-duty, four-screw, lock strike plates that cut deep into the doorframe studs.

The interior doors in most homes are flimsy, hollow-core wood doors so you will most likely need to upgrade these doors.  You will also want to install quality deadbolt locks on the doors to your safe room.

If you have young children, infants or toddlers you may want to make their room the safe room.  It will be easier for you or other adults to retreat to the children’s room rather than to get the children out of their room and into yours.  You should follow the same instructions on their doors if you select your child’s room as the safe room.

If you are in the process of building your home and want to include a professionally designed Safe Room, you may want to check with companies who specialize in “Safe Room” construction.  Depending upon your level of safe room protection they can provide a solid construction with reinforced walls and doors that can effectively stop bullets, incorporate a ventilation system, and provide a much more detailed and indepth level of protection.

Target Harden Your Home

October 29, 2009 by admin  
Filed under Home Security Solutions

home-pic-for-website-8-6-08rStrengthen The Perimeter Of Your Home With A Quality Security System And Common-Sense Products From Local Hardware Stores

Here is a list of simple but effective products that can be used to upgrade and give your home a stronger more impenetrable level of protection. These products will work exceptionally well with your home security system and make your home a less vulnerable target of a home invasion or home burglary.

 

These products can be purchased from your local Lowes, Home Depot, or Menard’s hardware store, and are excellent common-sense products that  help build layers of protection to an existing security system or one that you are planning to have installed.

1.   Solid core wood or metal doors for main entry and perimeter doors.  Reinforce frames around doors that are older or weaker.

2.   Upgraded solid, multi-strong locks for both doors and windows.  Deadbolts should have a minimum of 2-3″ bolt with reinforced strike plates. The Ultimate Lock is an exceptional lock for main entry doors. This lock can also be used on a designated Safe Room door and glass slider doors as well.  Make sure you have strong upgraded locks.

3.   Secure existing windows with new locks and/or replace with upgraded windows. To strengthen single pane glass windows install security film to given an impenetrable shield. If this is not available at the hardware store, ShatterGARD security window film is an exceptional product.

4.   One-way wide angle viewing peephole for front door if you have no sidelights next to door.  Before opening your door you need to KNOW who is there first! Otherwise DON’T OPEN THE DOOR!

5.   Intercom System - install a unit at the front door to talk with whoever is knocking. Gives better communication without having to open the front door. If budget permits, install a video intercom system so you can actually see who is at the front door.

6.   Automatic outdoor lighting system with lights that come on at a pre-set time.  Install motion detector lights in the front, back, and garage side of the house. For best results install lights on all 4-sides of the house.  Also consider having outside lights connected to one or more lamps/lights inside the home that will come on at the same time. This gives the appearance that someone is home. Most burglars don’t want to confront homeowners!

7.   Outdoor surveillance camera at front and garage area and/or interior webcam.  These cameras can send an alert to your cell phone and computer with video viewing.  Great technology!

8.   Make sure your home phone system has a wireless unit that you can carry with you.  Also keep a cell phone handy in case your phone lines are cut.

9.  Dowell rods can be placed inside windows that slide up/down or sideways as well as slider doors making it difficult to open without breaking. These rods come in various diameters and offer excellent strength to windows and slider doors at a reasonable cost.

10. Adding a quality storm door to the front entry can add an extra layer of protection and strength.  This will make it even harder for a home invasion attack on your front door.  You could also do the same to the garage entry door. 

Your first line of defense is having a good quality security system.   Make sure you place a security yard sign in both the front and back of your home as well as putting window decals on all vulnerable windows.   Intruders can see the signs and stickers from the street and will typically move to an easier home (one that doesn’t have a security system).

Intruders also know that people who have made the effort to protect their home with a security system are usually more security conscious and have hardened other areas of the home as well. 

Your goal should be to build layers of protection making your home’s  perimeter stronger and hardened enough to withstand an attack by a home intruder.  When you slow down the home intruder’s progress and make him work hard to get through, he will likely give up and move to an easier home to attack!  (One with NO security system).

Starting today take action and protect your home and family!

You see unemployment dramatically increasing, people are losing their jobs every day, drugs are on the rise, and people are turning to the easiest way to make a buck - through violent home invasion robberies, home burglaries, personal assault robberies, and business burglaries.

Do You Have An Early Alert Warning System For Your Home?

Filed under Home Security Headline News

If you don’t have an early alert warning system for your home, you could become a victim of a 3:00 a.m. home invasion crime.  Wouldn’t you like to know well ahead of time that there are intruders approaching your home to potentially do you and your family harm - especially if it’s in the middle of the night?  Be prepared and be alerted!

Would you like to be alerted when …

Cars are coming up the driveway • Children go inside your tool shed • Intruders approach the front or backyard • Someone enters your garage • Visitors are walking to the front door • Your parked boat or motor home has been boarded • Kids or pets are trampling your flowers…

then you need the Voice Alert System-6.

Ground Shipping is FREE (Continental USA orders only) if you order a minimum of $100.00 from our web site.

Voice alert
Frequently Asked Questions

Voice Alert System-6 is a new annunciator system featuring wireless PIR sensors transmitters and a remote receiver/speaker base unit. Users record their own alert messages and are then notified with their own voice message when activity in a monitored area is detected. Key applications include:
Wireless Driveway Alarm
Residential and Small Business Security
Child Monitoring and Pool Safety
Home Automation

System-6 allows a maximum of six user recorded messages. Each message is specific to one zone. For instance, zone one could be for a driveway alarm -“Car coming up the driveway” while zone two could be for a sensor monitoring the back yard- “Alert! Child by the pool!” Perhaps a third sensor guards a side entrance against intruders. However, when this PIR detects movement, the base unit plays “Intruder on patio” and triggers a floodlight using one of four relays included on the base unit. System-6 can monitor all three zones simultaneously and still have three additional zones available when needed. Users can alter their messages and place the wireless sensors wherever they wish.

Voice Alert System-6 sets up in minutes and can be completely customized to fit their individual needs. The wireless PIRs feature: all weather protection, adjustable mounting and sensitivity, and can send a signal 300 feet through walls and up to 1000 feet in open space.

“Originally I had doubts about a ‘wireless’ product, but not anymore! My wife and I love the Voice Alert. It’s so easy to setup and record our own messages. Sometimes we change them for fun, like last Halloween. Now we are notified when someone is coming up our walkway, enters our garage, or comes around the backyard. This is a great product!” — Kent G., Portland, Oregon

You may add transmitters (VA-6000T) to cover as many areas as you want.
