No matter how prepared you believe you are, have you taken the extra care to protect your most valuable sanctuary – your home? Realizing so many of us work from home now, our office space is part of that sanctuary, and it requires protection too!
Burglars, thugs, and outright thieves have stepped it up a notch and use their expertise in gaining entry to your “retreat” and carry out their evil deeds. Financial loss, albeit bad enough, is not the only thing to cause us to worry. The threat of physical harm to you or a family member from a home invasion certainly gets attention too.
Home invasions are on the rise, and the idea of having a safe neighborhood is becoming rarer and rarer. In many instances, the intruder simply walked through the front door or unlocked garage. Unfortunately, there is a misguided belief that some hold that “a home invasion won’t happen in my neighborhood.
Home invasion Ignites a market for home security systems.
Smart security uses the latest technology for safety to protect homes and businesses. Each day sees an increase over the previous day new customers are using the home security business. These security systems not only offer the ability to see inside and outside with cameras strategically placed, but also provide home automation. In fact, you can adjust your thermostat, turn on lights, TV, Radio, open or close blinds, lock and unlock doors, and many other things to make your life more comfortable.
To hire personal security for yourself and your home is way too expensive. And even if you could afford it, can you really trust the individual entirely? A home security business will do a much better job and the cost is not nearly as much! They will install 24/7 surveillance and HD cameras with day and night views and even come with the ability to “talk” to a would-be home invader, sound a siren, in essence scaring them away.
Many trusted and authorized security businesses work to keep an eye on your security systems. Any unusual motion or threat can be seen and identified with the cameras in place without sacrificing your privacy. movement or threat can be easily identified through cameras without breaching your privacy. Insist that the security business is not outsourcing the surveillance of your home and business.

WE cannot neglect business protection:
Along with the need for security on your computers, which is VERY important for any home business, our homes, and home businesses need protection too.
Our business systems, which most likely would include either paper hard copies or online system storage (computer) must be protected from theft, fire, and destruction.
Some of the business data which we depend on and use almost every day may include:
- A Bill pay system for your bills that need to be paid.
- An Invoicing system for your invoices to the client should you have them.
- An Accounting system for your receipts for purchases, especially of tax credit items
- A Client file system for your client correspondences and emails.
- An Office supply system for your paper and other office supplies.
- A Reference system for your reference pages to look at in the future.
- Usernames, passwords, keys which would be kept on jump drives out of the computers.
- financial records (trade records, purchases of cryptos, etc)
