Once again the front page of the Local South Bend Tribune states, “Burglars hit area hard.” There has been a recent surge of burglaries on the cities northwest side and South Bend - like other cities - only has so many police officers who can handle these crimes.  Burglars know this and are out in force!

During the past few months I have been saying that there would be a dramatic increase over the holidays in home burglary crimes.  Criminals are desperate and don’t care one bit whether they violate your property or your rights!  So what do you do?  Fight Back!!

Homeowners this message is for YOU! Take action to protect your home and family.  Stop being complacent and thinking this type of crime won’t happen to you. Here are steps you can take to fight back by implementing optimum protection strategies to target harden your home against intruders!!

7-Steps To Fight Back Against Home Burglary/Home Invasion Robbery Crimes

1. Install a good quality home security system with 24/7 alarm monitoring. This should be your #1 “To Do” in order to protect your home.  Set up your security protection to deter intruders.  Make them think twice before selecting your home by initially placing visible alarm yard signs in the front and back areas of your home and put alarm decals on windows.  Your alarm company will be alerted to any type of home intrusion, burglary or emergency and can immediately dispatch the local police.  There really is no excuse not to protect your home and family with a security system.  Remember the police can’t be everywhere and the security and safety of your home and family is your responsibility.  Be proactive and protect your home.  (Get an ADT Security system installed and start your peace of mind today.  Call 800-699-9238 and use Promotion Code A51539 and get a $200 mail-in Rebate. Be sure to give the Promo Code A51539 for full credit).

2. Harden the perimeter of your home.  Evaluate perimeter doors, windows, and locks.  Make sure to have solid core wood or metal doors for the main entry doors.  Reinforce frames around doors that are older or outdated. Consider upgrading deadbolts and locks to ensure they can provide solid protection in case of a forced intrusion.  If your door gets kicked in with the forced kick of a 250 lb intruder, you want to ensure your deadbolt lock will hold the door in place.  Check our security partners at www.theultimatelock.com to see how effective this locking system can be.  Windows and glass slider doors that are especially vulnerable can have a security window film applied on the inside glass to make it virtually  impenetrable to be broken through in an attack.  Check our security partners at www.shattergard.com.

3. Install an Early Alert Warning System for your home.  The Voice Alert System will let you know when someone is approaching or on your property within a specific radius of your home.  Outdoor sensors transmit an alert warning to a voice annunciator inside your home to let you know what area of your property is being breached by potential intruders.  Wouldn’t you like to know well ahead of time that someone is trying to enter your home or break into your car in the driveway?  The Voice Alert System lets you know giving you time to respond and alert 911.  Go to www.VoiceAlert911.com for details.

4. When you are at home, be sure to keep all doors and windows locked. If a stranger comes to your door, DO NOT open your door unless you know precisely who it is.  The majority of home invasion robberies happen right through the front door.  A homeowner automatically opens the front door without thinking and is confronted by a violent home intruder.  Make it a habit to ask who is at the front door before opening.  You can always communicate through a closed door. You are under no obligation to open your door to anyone - especially strangers.  Ask for identification if it is someone claiming to be from a utility or delivery service company.  Carry your phone and call to confirm their identity or call 911.  We hope to be to provide the Chain Reaction Home System in the near future.

5. Be sure to keep trees and shrubs trimmed around your home so you don’t give home intruders an easy place to hide.  Keep shrubs, bushes and trees well-trimmed - especially around ground level windows - so they do not block out light or serve as a hiding place.  Also  adding motion sensor lights around the home can provide a strong deterrent.  The best place to install motion sensor lights would be in the front, sides, back, and garage side of the house.  A suggestion would be to have the motion lights connected to a light or lamp inside the home.  That way if the outdoor motion light is activated it also turns a light on inside the house.  This gives the real impression to the burglar that someone may actually be at home.

6. When you pull into your driveway keep your car doors locked and observe if there are strangers around as you pull into the garage.  While still in your car, close the garage door and make sure it if fully closed as you exit your vehicle.  It is easy to become overwhelmed with groceries, packages, and work-related items to the point we aren’t paying close attention to what is going on in and around the garage area.  If you must park your car in the driveway or along the street in front of your home, take any valuables inside your home or place in the trunk.  Leaving valuables in plain view of a car burglar will make your vehicle extremely vulnerable.  Always lock doors, roll up windows, and if you have a door opener, take it inside.  Remember in a car break in the burglar can likely get inside your glove compartment and steal personal information such as car registration, etc.  Consider investing in a quality car alarm.  Also the Voice Alert System is another option letting you know when someone is near your car.

7. Keep some type of personal protection like pepper spray or mace near the front door - easily within reach in case of a forced intrusion. If you have small children, keep it out of reach and away from them.  Some homeowners resort to other non-lethal protection like a TASER or Stun Gun, other homeowners use lethal firearms for their family personal protection.  Be sure to follow local, city, and state laws regarding this protection and always make sure you know how to properly use the personal protection you select.  Keep in mind that the intruder may be armed so use your best judgment on how you will defend yourself. (www.thepersonalsecuritystore.com).

These are also important steps that should be included in your overall home protection.

  • Have a Home Security Plan of Action that states exactly what you will do to maintain the safety of your home and family.  This plan should outline some specific strategies that will help to strengthen the perimeter of your home and outline things that you can do to help provide additional protection for family members if you are involved in a home invasion attack.  The plan may also encourage taking a self-defense and/or personal safety awareness training class.  By learning safety awareness and self-defense techniques and tactics, you will know defensive ways to protect yourself against an attacker whether at home or on the street. (http://letstalkhomesecurity.com/?p=1310).
  • Join or form a Neighborhood Watch Group where neighbors know each other in the immediate vicinity. Get to know the neighbors across from you. Have a form and get to know your neighbors so you can all watch out for each other.  Go across the street 5 houses to the left and 5 houses to the right and do the same on your side 5-houses to the left and 5-houses to the right.  Then exchange names, phone numbers, addresses, and vehicle types.  Recognize any unfamiliar vehicles especially those driving slowly looking at individual homes.  When you arrive home, if there is an unfamiliar vehicle parked in front of your home with people inside, you should drive on especially if you are the least bit in doubt or have a “gut feeling” that says drive on. (Form attached at the end the FREE Report for neighbor names/addresses).
  • Always be alert and aware of your surroundings. Sometimes your intuition or instincts will let you know when something isn’t right.  Listen!  When you are out and about be aware if someone - perhaps a stranger - seems to be watching you too closely, seems overly friendly, or way too interested in your personal affairs.  Be aware of any vehicle that you feel is following you a little too closely as you drive home.

Do Burglars Have It Way Too Easy?

November 23, 2009 by admin  
Filed under Home Security Solutions

There was an article in Sunday’s South Bend Tribune Voice of the People section entitled “burglars have it way too easy in her neighborhood.”  The writer asked “who’s going to do something about it?”

cw-pic-burglar-break-inr3My response is that the police need to CLEAN UP the crime mess, but like every other city throughout the U.S. crime is like a cancer that no matter how much chemo or radiation you throw at it – it just continues to grow. 

Therefore, my suggestion is to “fight back against crime” and if the burglars have it way too easy it’s because homeowners have NOT done everything they can to make their homes more difficult to get into. 

Homeowners need to take responsibility to ensure their homes are well-protected, secure, and safe 24/7.  People cannot rely soley upon the police because there just aren’t enough of them.  Crime is increasing every day and with the holidays coming on – there will be a tremendous spike in all types of crime.

We all need to take proactive action and begin implementing optimum protection strategies for both your home security and personal safety.

4. When you are home, keep all doors and windows locked.  Also keep your garage down closed if you are not using the garage.  It’s an open invitation to criminals and such an easy way to get into your home.  If a stranger comes to your door, DO NOT open your door unless you know precisely who it is.  The majority of home invasion robberies happen right through the front door.  A homeowner automatically opens the front door without thinking and is confronted by a violent home intruder.  Make it a habit to ask who is at the front door before opening.  You can always communicate through a closed door.

My guest on Lets Talk Home Security radio, Tuesday, 11-24-09, will bepolice-siren-911r-11-18 Captain Dan Gebo, Mishawaka Police Department, Mishawaka, IN.  With the holiday season officially kicking off on Black Friday, November 27th, the discussion will center on personal safety while shopping at the mall, safety & security while out and about this holiday season, and making your home less of a target for holiday Grinch home burglars.

Captain Gebo has been a police officer for 17 years spending five of those years with the St. Joseph County Police Department, South Bend, IN working in the jail division and the narcotics bureau.  As a Captain with the Mishawaka PD, he has been a patrol officer and is currently in charge of community relations and the Street Crime Unit (SCU).   Before starting his law enforcement career Capt. Gebo served 4+ years in the US Army - 82nd Airborne Division, Ft. Bragg, NC.  During that time he served one tour in the Gulf War.

Capt Gebo states that one of the main reasons he became a police officer is to help people and serve the community he lives in.  And he enjoys his job!!  (This is the type of officer we hope every city has).   Be sure to check out his recommended site to keep you updated on crime within your neighborhoods - www.nixle.com.

When I contacted Capt Gebo about the interview and told him the topic I wanted to discuss, he indicated he was doing a presentation early Friday morning with local businesses of the shopping mall discussing the same topic - Holiday Shopping Personal Safety.  This interview will reiterate the need for all of us to be more proactive about our personal safety and home security - especially during the holiday season.

Home Security Safe Room-Part II

November 7, 2009 by admin  
Filed under Home Security Solutions

cw-safe-room-equipment11Do you want a Safe Room that can withstand bullets, an explosion, or  possible gas attack?  Or do you just want a Safe Room that can provide a secure and safe place for your family to escape from home intruders until police authorities or help arrives?  Here are simple things you can do to prepare a Safe Room in your home.  CLICK HERE to read Part I - Do You Have a Home Security Plan That Includes A Safe Room?

Here are some suggestions for your Safe Room:

1.  Reinforced frame around the door to the Safe Room.  Have a solid core metal or wood door to the safe room and a deadbolt locking system on the door leading to the safe room.  You may want to consider the Ultimate Lock deadbolt locking system as it can withstand 4,000+ lbs of force, has a lockout mechanism, and is a perfect solution for the safe room door whether it be the master bedroom, kids room, or the master bedroom closet.  To learn about the Ultimate Lock CLICK HERE.

2.  A security keypad or wireless remote emergency button that is part of your home security system.  The RF remote can send an emergency alert signal to your alarm company which will indicate that you need immediate help.  The police authorities are usually dispatched immediately.  You can also have this alert to trigger both an interior and exterior siren.  Noise is a big deterrent and most intruders aren’t going to stick around if they know the police are on the way.

3.  Have several forms of communications to alert police or to get help. You may want to have both a cordless telephone and a cell phone.  Even a radio communication would be good to have in case the intruders used a cell phone jamming device.  If you’re dealing with professional intruders, they may try to disable standard wired phones and cordless phones simply by cutting the phone line to your home or taking on extension off the hook.  When you call 911, your billing address is displayed on the 911 screen, so remember to give your home address just in case it’s different from your billing address.

Remember that a cordless phone requires the base unit to be plugged into the standard phone line in your home.  If the phone line is cut or unplugged, your cordless phone is dead.  That’s why it is important to have a cell phone or radio communication.  You will just need to make sure it is always charged and ready for use.

4. A quality flashlight.  You may need a flashlight if the intruder cuts the power to your house.  Also, if it’s late at night you may want to leave the lights off anyway.  Ensure you have extra batteries or a fully charged flashlight.  Consider adding a backup battery system or backup power generator to your home electricity in case someone cuts your power in an attempted home invasion.  It’s also a good idea to have in case of storms or normal power outages

5. If there is a window in your safe room, keep an extra set of house and car keys* in that room.  When the police arrive, you can throw your house keys to the police from the window of your safe room.  (You may even want to have a “pet blinky” attached to your keychain in case you have to toss the keys out a night).  These keys will allow the police to quickly enter your home while you remain secure in your safe room.  Additionally, if you are able to escape, you will have your car keys available.  If your safe room is on the second level, make sure you have an Escape Ladder that can be used.

6.  Bottled water and a first aid kit.  The time you will be spending in the safe room should be short - possibly 30 minutes or less.  Just long enough for help to arrive.  This will be a stressful situation and you will want to make sure you’ve considered even minor things.

7.  Personal Protection to save yours and your families’ life.  If all else fails and you have home intruders who have made it to your Safe Room, your life and the lives of your family may be in grave danger.  You need to decide if having something like pepper spray/mace, Advanced TASER, C2 TASER protection will be effective if confronted by violent intruders who have come with lethal weapons.  Do you need to have lethal firearms to protect your family?  The answer may be obvious for some people.  Only you can make the decision of what will work best for you!  But realize that if someone is intent on hurting or killing you and your family, time will be of the essence in getting the police or help to your home.  Whatever personal protection you use, be sure you are properly trained and know how to use it.

* If your car keys have an alarm button, you could activate the car alarm from your safe room. Noise is a deterrent and an audible alarm may alert the intruder/s to the fact that the situation is known to others.

Make sure each family member knows what to do if forced to retreat to the Safe Room.  From time to time set up family meetings to remind everyone of the process and why you have the safe room.  Let them know they are to refuse to come out of the safe room until they are absolutely certain it is by the request of police or law enforcement authority.

It is my hope that you never have to use your safe room, but it is best to be proactive and be prepared!

Stay safe and protect your home and family!

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

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!

Top 25 Most Dangerous Cities In The United States

Filed under Home Security Headline News

Is your city one of the top 25 most dangerous cities in the United States?  Crime is increasing in almost every city throughout the country but in some areas it is infecting the entire fiber of the community.

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. 

Having been a security consultant for a large alarm company for twenty years I saw crime on a daily basis.  Never have I seen crime exploding as it is today!  People need to be more proactive and take responsibility for setting up their home security protection.  By target hardening your home - both the perimeter and interior - you can make your home a less likely target of a violent home invasion or home burglary crime. 

As we approach the holiday season this has always been a time for giving and a time for “increased crime.”  We don’t need an increase in crime!  My recommendation is to start today by implementing optimum protection strategies -building layers of protection - for your home.  Refuse to become a victim of a senseless and violent home burglary - home invasion robbery crime.

Click this link and review the steps you can take to provide a solid and secure home for you and your family.
