Home Security in New York

Even though the statewide rate of property crime - one in every 55 residents - is considerably lower than the national median, for the 56,442 New Yorkers who were the victims of burglary in a recent year, home security is a very real issue. What options are available in New York to better protect people and property?

The first logical option is to use an electronic home security system. Any New Yorker could benefit from having round-the-clock monitoring of doors and windows, smoke detectors, and intruder alarms. Even renters can make use of wireless security systems, which can be put in place and removed easily and require no connection to existing wiring; in this way, tenants can have the peace of mind of a home security system without needing it to be provided or approved by a landlord.

For New York residents who travel regularly, today's technology has made it possible for home security system customers to check the status of their homes from a laptop, iPad, or any other device with a connection to the Internet, anywhere on the planet. This remote-control capability even allows users to arm and disarm the system, lock or unlock doors, or see a live camera feed at their convenience.

However, it goes without saying that common sense has an important role in home security. Burglars and other intruders look for residences that are easy to enter and exit undetected, so it is important for New York homeowners and renters alike to lock doors and windows, use bright exterior lighting where appropriate, and make it obvious that their residences are occupied (even when they are not). Having a good relationship with neighbors can provide protection within entire communities, as people look out for each other, bringing in mail and newspapers when someone is gone for an extended period of time and even reporting any suspicious activity to the landlord or police.

New Yorkers can choose from a wide range of home security providers and implement their own easy, inexpensive solutions in order to keep their families and belongings safe and sound.
