Nothing is more important than a safe and secure family.
At Armet Alarm & Electronics, Inc. your security is our first priority. We recommend the following tips for a secure home:
Always be aware of usual and unusual activities in your neighborhood; immediately report suspicious behavior
Remember, an open or unlocked window or door invites burglars. Secure all windows and doors that are accessible from the outside, including those upstairs
Always leave a few inner lights burning at night. Automatic timers can be used to vary the on/off pattern of interior lights when you are away.
Never leave a spare key hidden outside
Install peepholes so you can screen your visitors
Make a habit of keeping garage doors closed and locked
Ask for identification from service and delivery people before letting them into your home
Install deadbolt locks on all exterior entrances
Make sure smoke detectors are working and up to code, or consider adding a monitored smoke or heat detector
Post emergency phone numbers by the telephone (including your cellular phone or pager numbers) for your children or babysitter to use when you are not at home
Make sure visitors staying at your home also know your address and where emergency numbers are located
When leaving for an extended period, such as during a vacation, you should take several additional precautions:
Ask a neighbor to keep an eye on your home
Stop newspaper deliveries
Ask a neighbor to pick up your mail
If necessary, arrange for lawn care
Notify your local law enforcement agency that you plan to be away. Most agencies will schedule periodic checks of your home once having been alerted of your absence and of the need for extra attention.
