If someone were to ask you what you care about most in life, what comes to mind first? Are you thinking about your car or your job, or do you picture your family, friends, and pets?
For most of us, our loved ones mean more than anything. The people in our lives are often what we hold most dear because they are irreplaceable. They shape us and make us who we are.
Recently, the tragic news of Kobe Bryant’s untimely death sent shock waves through the country. Whether you are a sports fan or not, you can resonate with the pain of losing a friend, a father, a husband, an idol. It really puts in perspective that our lives are fragile.
When we talk about home security, we often mention your house or your valuables, but really it’s the lives of those inside the home that need the most protection. Home security is about protecting you when you’re sleeping, feeling ease when the kids are home alone, and alerting first responders of your pets in case of fire.
Think of Home Security Like Insurance
Most people are aware of the risks of everyday life, which is why they purchase insurance for their lives, their health, and their homes.
Security is like an extension of insurance for your life. A home security system is an investment in your protection, your health, and your safety, as well as your family’s and your pet’s.
We’ve spoken with many people before who want to install a home security system after their house has been burglarized. While they are upset about the theft of their items, what scares them most is the thought of someone inside their home.
Your house is supposed to be your safe space, for you and your loved ones. It should feel comforting and relaxing. But those who have suffered by the hands of an intruder are no longer relaxed, they are on high alert. Their privacy has been invaded and now they feel susceptible.
So often SEi mentions that a home security system can bring peace of mind, because it does. Our team becomes a vital component in the safety of your life. We are an immediate connection to emergency services like the police, paramedics, EMTs, and firefighters.
In many ways, we are your eyes and ears of your home. We are continuously monitoring for signs of theft, fire or flooding. When you’re not home, we’re still safeguarding your house and anyone inside. Even when you are home, we protect you from the unknown or unseen, like carbon monoxide or motion detected outside your house.
Having a monitored security system is like always having someone watching your back, no matter the day or the time.
A Life-Changing Event Can Happen to Anyone
Unfortunately, everyone is susceptible to actions like theft, fire, and carbon monoxide. You may be saying to yourself, “But I live in a safe neighborhood. I don’t need a security system.” The unfortunate fact of the matter is, living in a low-crime area doesn’t eliminate your risk for break-ins.
Actually some sources, such as consumeradvocate.org, report that suburban homes are 50% more likely to be burglarized. This is due to factors such as fewer witnesses and fewer security systems.
Even in Omaha, where our headquarters are located, there are some of the highest percentages of crimes, including burglary, theft, and motor vehicle theft, in the United States. According to Neighborhood Scout, your chances of becoming a victim of property crime in Omaha are 1 in 29.
No matter how safe your neighborhood may be, fire and carbon monoxide are still threats to every home. You may not believe your home is in danger of being burglarized, but there isn’t a house that can’t catch fire, flood, or suffer from a carbon monoxide leak.
