Many users had compaint about the security system is not as secure as we think, somehow the malfunctioning of security system, false alarms from animal, such as dogs and cats, etc., had bring a lot of trouble to the users. Of course if you go through the expense and inconvenience of having a security system installed in your home or business, you will want it to be as reliable as possible for obvious reasons. 

Security System - Home & Family Protection
To start with, you want it to do what it is supposed to do and if there is any weakness in the system, you don't want to be the last one to find out about it. You also don't want to have a false sense of security, that is going to leave you even more vulnerable to being victimized then you already are.
Can it really be as easy to disarm a security systems as they make it look in those TV crime thrillers where the bad guy simply cuts a wire to bypass the security system? The true answer is that with older systems it can be even easier then that, because many dated systems can be bypassed by simply cutting the phone line of turning off the homes power at the fuse box.
The good news is the a modern, up to date security system, is almost virtually impossible to bypass and in fact has multiple layers of security just in case one layer is bypassed. With the advent of newer state of the art technology, your security system can begin to protect you and your family outside, along the perimeter of your home, with a security zone that wraps completely around your residence. It's manned by super-high tech infrared and motion detectors that can pick up a persons body heat and movements from thirty-five feet out and won't give false alarms.
These sensors are impossible to see when they are hidden and function in any type of weather, day or night. So that is the first layer of security and the second one is on the windows and doors of your home. New technological improvements in trigger sensors for windows and doors have made them far more secure, with wireless technology. They transmit signals to the control panel by radio waves, so there simply is no longer any wires to cut like you saw in the movies. 
Their batteries last up to three years and they will automatically signal the control panel when they run low, so there is never a chance of a dead battery. Then there is yet a third layer of high tech security on the interior of the home or business that is made up of the same type of wireless sensors that make up the first layer on the outside of the home or business.
For many types of commercial businesses and also for some home owners, there is always the concern that someone my hide out inside during the day with a plan to do their nefarious work at night after the alarm has been set. With infrared and motion sensors located inside of the building, anyone that is there will instantly trip the system and sound the alarm. All of this has a back-up battery powers source that can run the entire security system for weeks if the main power is ever shut off.
Before you spend a penny on a new security system, think about what you need, and what you will be getting. Are you getting the best products, monitoring and customer service? Do you really trust the company you are buying from? Protecting your home is your biggest responsibility, and you should make sure you choose a company you can trust, not the one with the biggest advertising budget.

Crime is a pandemic that is fast taking over the world. With the recession in the world's economy; fraud, corruption, theft, falsehood and violent crime is rampant. In realizing that hurt people hurt others, one should understand that the chances of one becoming a victim of crime is no longer a mere possibility, but a reality. The purpose of this article is to advise people on how to close up some of the loopholes in their private lives that may enable potential criminals the opportunity to penetrate.

Remember, a fort with weak cornerstones is no fort at all and a castle built on sand will come crumbling down in no time. Naivety is a thing of the past and society should rather be acquiring skills in risk management, strategic living and be seeking wisdom above all else. It is not the intent of this article to raise fear amongst its readers, but to rather serve as a practical preventative survival methodology.

Keep life in perspective. One can elevate one thing (often an unimportant thing) over what matters in life in no time. This could be money, a relationship, an asset, a job or a person. Conduct a priority check on a regular basis to ensure you have life in perspective and that nothing that you value has become out of sync in relation to the rest of life. This could place you at a risk of becoming a victim of crime. Potential criminals often study their victims and view areas where the victim is highly emotionally invested as a possible weak link for penetration.

Protect your vulnerability. Vulnerability is beneficial as it keeps you connected with your 'humanness'. In current society, vulnerability should be run through a sieve of wisdom before being expressed. The reasons for this suggestion ties in with the point mentioned above.

Carefully chose the company you keep. It has been said that 'bad company corrupts good character'. This is true. People also judge you on the company you keep. Often however, the seemingly most innocent person can turn out to be the most vicious at heart when provoked. This is therefore not a foolproof methodology, but one should keep a smaller circle of close friends whose actions and lifestyle you have observed in a variety of circumstances as opposed to exposing yourself to a large community of people without applying good judgement.

Avoid allowing strangers into your home or closed living space. Communes and buddy-living are fast becoming a thing of the past. Bachelor apartments are in for those who prefer to go solo and families are even fast reducing their living space. This simple living concept is supported by those encouraging the prevention of crime. The reason for suggesting this is that you can easily invite a vicious criminal into your home or onto your property without being aware of it. Don't pick up strangers and invite them into your home. Don't easily go home with strangers either.

Spend a little extra money on home security. This depends on the area you live in. Some areas are more prone to crime than others and therefore this needs to be placed into perspective. Comply with your Insurance Companies' minimum security requirements. Insurance Companies have a large database of losses per area that are made available to them. The better Companies make security suggestions to their clients based on loss history specific to the area they reside in. Although not foolproof, precautionary measures are recommended for a reason. Try and have a little more security fitted than your neighbours. The reason for this is their house may seem more attractive to an opportunist potential thief or armed robber at crunch time.

Home security systems: should you have one?

Home safety and security is a top concern for most consumers, so it's no surprise the home security industry is booming in this time of economic uncertainty and rising crime statistics. But while new technologies have made home security systems smarter and easier to use, how much protection do you really get for your money?

The answer is: it depends. Costs, services and benefits are as varied as the ways burglars try to break into a house. If you're monitoring the home security market for the right system to protect your family and your property, here are answers to the big questions about home security alarm systems.

On the beginning of this month, we have touched a little regarding the Autogate System (Automatic Gate). By understanding the difference types of Autogate in the market, perhaps, someone might asking, why do we need Autogate?

Why Install an Autogate System?

Security: Security is playing a large part in choosing to install an electric auto gate system at either your home or business premises. Electrically controlled gates (swing arm, sliding gate) are a serious deterrent to the opportunist, car thief or vandal. In conjunction with a video or audio intercom, you can control who has access to your premises from the safety of your home or office. You can effectively move your first line of defense to your gateway rather than your front door.

Convenience: Look at driveways with wrought iron or wooden gates. How many are left open? If one of your reasons for installing autogates was for security, you've wasted your money if you can't be bothered to get out of the car to close them every day. Both metal and wooden gates can be very heavy and difficult to open and close so automating them may be a necessity for some. Freeing yourself from this chore has to be by far the most common reason for installing automatic gates. Imagine coming home on a dark, stormy night. Now imagine being able to open the gates from the comfort, warmth and safety of your car and then close them safely behind you.

Practicality:  Talking of busy roads, do motorists use your driveway to turn their cars around or worse park? Do you have children and would you prefer to keep them safely behind your auto gate and away from the road or people passing by? What about your dog? You can have your gates close automatically behind you so that you don't have to remember to close them and jeopardise your children or pets' safety.

Besides being used as a storage space for valuables or vehicles, your garage is also an entrance to your home. And it can be a popular entry point for burglars because neighbors won’t think much of an open garage with a truck or van pulled inside.

Never leave the garage door open – How many times have you driven down your street and seen open garage doors? We have even observed garage doors left open all day. Even if you think your neighborhood is “safe,” this is not a good idea as it invites burglars. Take the first step to secure your garage by keeping the door shut.

Never leave the garage door open
Change your door access code – Older garage door openers all came with the same garage door remote code. That means a burglar could gain access to your home by simply driving through the neighborhood and pressing a generic remote, looking for doors that open. While newer models have “rolling-code” technology that changes the code every time the door is opened, many homes still have the old openers. Protect your home and prevent burglaries by changing that code.

Change your door access code
Do not leave the opener in your car – Leaving your garage door opener in your car is like leaving your house key in your car. Someone could simply break into your vehicle and use the remote to open your garage and access your home. You can secure your garage by upgrading to a remote that attaches to your car keys so you can take it with you. 

Never leave the opener in your car
Tint, frost, or cover the windows – If your garage door has windows, you can protect your home and prevent burglaries by covering them or tinting them so a thief cannot see when your vehicle is gone. It is an even better idea to switch the door out for one without windows to avoid the chance the burglars smash the windows to gain access.

Have your window tinted, forst, or cover.
Secure the door to your home – The door between your garage and your home should be treated like your front door. Protect your home from burglaries and secure your garage by using a heavy-duty exterior door with a quality deadbolt and keeping it locked at all times. You can also install a peephole, which will allow you to check on noises in the garage without opening the door.

Secure the door to your home
Extend the perimeter of your security system – Many Atlanta and D.C. area homeowners’ security systems only extend to the door between the garage and the home. By extending your security system and including the garage as an interior space, you can protect your home and secure your garage.

Extend the perimeter of your security systems
Install motion-sensor lights – Motion-sensitive lights help deter nighttime break-ins and prevent burglaries because thieves do not like to commit their crimes while under a spotlight. 

Install motion-sensor lights
