Keeping Home Owners Safe from Crime

I began working in home security after a friend of mine was a victim of a home invasion that left them psychologically scarred and unable to leave their own home for fear of the outside world. After that horrible occurrence I came to a startling realization, a burning need that was stoked by my anger at my friend’s situation, that I wanted to help protect people. I didn’t want to become a police officer but I did want to do something that mattered. Another close friend who worked for ADT home security systems in Augusta inspired me to go into the home security business.

I’ve learned quite a bit in the two years that I have started working in the industry but one thing that I’ve learned which has struck me powerfully is the feeling of vulnerability that many victims of home robberies have. It’s a traumatic experience that leaves them shaken to the core as the very sanctity of the place that they call home has been utterly violated. The anger that I feel for what has been done to these people leaves me feeling helpless as I wish I could do more to help put their minds at ease.

I can’t believe we still live in a society where there are men and women eagerly waiting to take advantage of someone else. They wait within the cracks of our culture lurking in the shadows until the moment to strike presents itself. The majority of the time they break into our homes when we’re not even there to protect it – which is where ADT and myself come into the picture. I want to make sure that even if they do manage to break through the security that will guard your home that they will be caught thanks to the cameras we always encourage clients to install.
