It’s common knowledge that the holidays are open season for crime. Law enforcement departments caution that theft and property crimes, including home invasion, greatly increase between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day. Nationally, according to the FBI, burglaries spike during the month of December when families leave their homes unattended for the holidays. What are the odds that your home will be burglarized this year? Data from an FBI crime report indicate that roughly 1 in every 36 homes in the United States will be burglarized. Don’t let your home fall victim; home security should be at the top of your list this holiday season.
So how can you protect yourself? The best preventative tip that we can offer is to get a monitored home security system to help reduce the chance of being targeted. In a report published by the University of North Carolina, roughly 60 percent of convicted burglars said that the presence of a security system influenced their decision to target a home. Be sure to post yard signs and window stickers to alert potential intruders about your security system.
Wireless HD Video Security Cameras
Enter Blink, an effective and easy-to-install new home security option to protect your home. Blink is an ingenious, super affordable, wireless video security and home monitoring system that offers a number of advantages over other home security systems.
The first perk of Blink is the cleverly designed security camera. It’s a small unit that can fit in the palm of your hand, and it’s entirely wireless. This makes installation extra easy: You can simply move and place the camera units anywhere in the house, inside or outside. Multiple camera units can provide video coverage of multiple spaces. The cameras are also waterproof, and the units are energy efficient; they are battery operated, requiring only two AA batteries that last for up to two years.
Another big advantage of the Blink home security system is ease of setup. All you need is an app that you can add to your smartphone in just minutes. You’ll be able to receive motion activated HD video alerts right on your phone. That makes it possible to monitor your home from wherever you happen to be. When the family is away from home, the movement of an intruder will instantly trigger a live video alert. You’ll be able to notify the authorities remotely about any threat alerts that you receive.
The security camera does double duty as an alarm system and a monitoring device. At other times of year, if you’re just interested in monitoring the activity at home, you can stream live video of any room in the house whenever you want. Better yet, there are no monthly contracts required.
Blink Security 1 camera kits start at $99. The more cameras you need the less expensive they become per camera with our system bundles.
The best part is that all plans are monthly with no long-term contracts required.
