You are finally home from a long day. You disarm your system and throw your uncomfortable shoes off of your feet, with full intentions to plant yourself directly in bed with Netflix and a bag of popcorn. You know you will probably fall asleep and sleep through the night… should you arm your security system even though you are home? We think that not arming your system is similar to having a sleeping security guard.Security systems are the best way to protect your home and yourself from dangers you may not even be aware of. Here are 3 reasons why you should get into the habit of arming your security system while you are home:
1. We Can’t Do Everything.
We always hope that our home is our safest haven, but if a time comes where it becomes a jail to you, you would have wished you had remembered to set your security system. Being on high-alert while you are trying to squeeze 8 hours of sleep into your hectic schedule is not the best way to get a good night’s rest. Security systems are here for a reason, to protect you. Let the professional’s do the job while you are trying to unwind.
2. Habits Are Hard to Break.
Did you know that some people can form a habit in as little as 16 days? Forming a habit that you stick to (one that literally could save your life), is certainly motivation to begin. If you get into the habit of arming your security system when you are home, you are increasing your safety and allowing you to put your guard down and truly relax in your home.
3. You’ll Be In Control.
Have you ever heard about the teenaged boy who got home from school and took a nap? At one point, he woke up due to hearing some commotion downstairs, but quickly fell back asleep, assuming his family had arrived. Hours later, he awoke to find his family’s flat screen TV missing and no one in sight. If he had set his security system, he would have quickly realized that there was, in fact, an intruder and the system probably would have scared them away.The whole point of having a security system is to feel secure, whether you are home or not.
