You feel as if you have been violated in the deepest sense. Who could have done this to you and why? What did you ever do to them? What caused them to pick your house instead of the neighbor’s house that has been sitting empty for the last month since old Ms. Maple went to live in the nursing home? And now, that sinking, sickening feeling in your stomach is about to boil over to sheer anger and rage. Yes, the burglar who entered your home and ransacked your house has caused upheaval, turmoil and anxiety in your little world.
Is there anything you can do to prevent this? Will it happen again? What were they after? What did they take and will you ever get it back again? You’ve called the police and they will be coming shortly, but there’s a good chance that they won’t have a clue as to who has caused this chaos. Oh, they’ll lift prints and process them with the slim possibility that it may turn up a name but then there’s the prosecution and the one in a million chance of sentencing. In all reality the likelihood of getting your treasured items back is about slim to none.
You’re scared and you’re angry. You swear to yourself that number one, if you ever find out who did this, you’ll kill him yourself; and number two, you are going to have an alarm system installed. But wait; remember when you priced the alarm company monitoring system a couple of years back? It was outrageous for them to just sit around and wait for an alarm to go off just so that they could delay in calling the cops and then have them respond only to find out that you forgot to close the garage door on your way out the door in a rush this morning. Oh and by the way, the police are going to leave you with a fine for responding to a false alarm courtesy of your local county commissioners . . . such sweet people they are.
Is there an answer to this vicious cycle? Can something be done to be an effective deterrent? The Home Automation Store thinks there can. They offer a wide variety of electronics that should deter even the keenest of burglars such as X10 Eagle Eye Motion Sensor, the X10 Surveillance Cameras, the X10 Door Window Sensor and a whole lot of other cool gadgets.
Take a look at what they have to offer. Consider what you may need to protect your home, family and valuables. Do the math. Can the cost of the items from The Home Automation Store amount to more than you spending the hundreds of dollars to have the big alarm companies come in and install a system and then charge you that $50 – $60 a month monitoring fee? Make the wise choice – get your protection at a rate you can afford.
