Alarm Systems

There are several factors involved in the selection of a burglar alarm. They include your budget, where you live, which type of alarm system you are most interested in and what other home security devices you already have in place. Read More…

Diversion Safes

Diversion safes are one of the most efficient products for keeping your prized possessions well protected at all times. They are small safes that are designed to look exactly like common household products. Each one is also made to feel exactly like the real thing, so if a criminal were to pick one up they would never know the difference.

Law enforcement statistics have proven conclusively that burglars only spend a few minutes in any home they break into. In most cases they will be in and out of a targeted house in less than ten minutes. They know that the longer they spend inside, the greater the chances will be that someone will come home or a neighbor will notice something is wrong and call the police. For his or her own self preservation, a thief will have to move quickly!

Because a burglar only has a short time to look around, they will generally check out a few areas that are well known for being hiding spots for cash, jewelry and other valuables. The law breakers may know all about diversion safes, but they won’t have time to look through every product in your home just in case you have one. You might have a safe that is a replica of a soda can, shaving cream, book or even a wall outlet. There is just no way for the scofflaw to look through every item in your home, so you can hide your most cherished items right under their noses.

Burglar Proof Doors

Burglars break into your home when they believe no one is around so they can take your most valuable possessions.

There are several ways to do this. Read More…

Lethal Weapons

Picture this. It’s late at night and you hear a noise at the back door or a window inside your home. You get up to investigate and find an intruder breaking into your home. What would you do?
