Ever since I moved out to this area, I have realized the importance of having a good security system for my home and to have some good security anywhere that I am in general. There is a lot more crime in this area and I am not used to having to make sure my doors are locked at all times and that I don’t have any valuables left seen in the car.
I grew up in a college town in a pretty safe area in the Midwest and no crime really ever happened there. My parents live in a house there and our neighbors would always leave their front doors unlocked and packages on their doorsteps and they would even leave their garage doors wide open with all kinds of bikes and equipment just sitting there unattended.
Now that I live in a much larger city, I no longer can get away with some of these habits. Packages here get stolen if they are left on a doorstep, for example, and so do bikes that are just sitting near a home. My wireless security alarm system has made it easy for me to keep my home secure so that I don’t have to worry about what is going on at my home when I am not there.
