Home Security in Florida

Home security companies in Florida offer residents' peace of mind amid state crime rates: more than 138,000 burglaries are reported in a typical year, with the chances of becoming a victim of burglary or other property crime at 1 in 32.

Most burglaries happen during the day when apartments and homes are empty, as residents are working or attending school. Even though nearly three-fourths of burglaries involve forced entry, windows and doors left open or unlocked often give criminals easy access. Home security systems offer Floridians a means of protecting themselves from such invasion of their privacy and safety.

Both renters and homeowners can obtain home security packages that include 24/7 monitoring at reasonable prices, and that use the most current technology available.

Remotely-controlled home security systems are one popular modern technology: offering the ability to use a cell phone or iPad to get real-time status updates, set alarms, control thermostats, and even lock doors. Also, Florida renters are increasing the popularity of wireless home security systems; the ease-of-installation and convenience let residents control their protection needs without needing input from their landlords.

Putting basic strategies for home security in place is another way for Floridians to protect their loved ones and belongings against home-based crime. For instance, an apartment or home that is hard to enter can deter burglars from the start. Doors can be secured with heavy-duty, quality deadbolt locks and strike plates, and windows should not be left unlocked or open. Windows can also be less likely to be used as a point of entry when they are reinforced with blocking devices like sticks or dowels in the tracks of windows that slide horizontally, or through-the-frame pins in those that open vertically.

Florida residents have a wide range of home security companies and easy-to-implement improvements that can offer them greater peace of mind.
