What is the reality of crime in India today? The reality is that crime does happen; although since 1993 there have been nationwide declines in certain types of crimes, as sources such as the National Crime Victimization Survey suggest. However, prison populations have been increasing and it is still believed, statistically speaking, that a violent crime or robbery is committed every 20 minutes. This emphasizes the point that even if crime is decreasing, that still doesn't mean that crime won't affect your household at some point in the future.
The most likely homes to be invaded or burglarized are homes without security systems. A burglar is counting on the possibility that he has found a quiet neighborhood where crime "never happens." This means that he has an easy entrance into his destination. He may decide to spy out the right house and learn at what time the owner leaves. Or he may simply invade the house upon learning that the inhabitant is unarmed.
This is the reality of crime. If you have no defense planned towards burglary or home assault, then you are waiting for disaster. Some homeowners may try to compromise, by adding on a primitive home security system to their property. These could include any means of protection from a growling dog to a siren alarm system. Unfortunately, these methods are not reliable, as both can be easy to silence by an experienced burglar.
The best method of protection is in live monitoring. Practically every competing security company today offers live monitoring services.Live monitoring involves equipping your home with an alarm system that alerts you and local authorities upon intrusion. However, this system is not automated. Rather, experienced operators are standing by in order to respond to a possible emergency. There are panic buttons as well as motion sensors to provide full protection.
In addition, home security systems offer protection from all harmful elements, even ones that could not be identified by motion detection alone. These risks include fire and carbon monoxide poisoning. In addition, your alarm system can be customized to alert you to non-life threatening but still risky emergencies involving computer crashes, extreme temperatures or flooding. Some hospitals and clinics have even arranged for special detection to help in caring for the elderly or for infirm patients.
