Home Security in Idaho

Idaho MapIdaho residents may be surprised to learn that their chances of becoming a victim of property crimes, such as burglary and automobile theft, are 1 in 54. With these crimes as well as home invasion both presenting a legitimate home security threat to renters and homeowners, what options can Idahoans choose for protection and peace of mind?

The best home security companies have service packages that provide residents with affordable, real-time monitoring with the most current technologies on the market. Many Idahoans with home security systems use remote technology that allows them to lock their doors, turn lights on and off, and get system updates from anywhere they choose using the device of their choice (e.g. iPad, Android smartphone, etc.). This feature is particularly useful, as the majority of burglaries happen during the day when houses are unoccupied, with residents away at school or work. Remote access also offers people more peace of mind while on vacation, with the knowledge that their home's doors really are locked and the lights are on. Finally, for renters, wireless home security systems are easily installed and independent of landlord upkeep or permission.

Idaho residents can take further action to protect their homes, belongings, and loved ones. Burglars often choose homes or apartments with unsecured windows, doors and frames that can be opened by force or with a credit card slipped between the latch and frame, or sliding glass doors that are easily lifted off their tracks. Burglars are also more likely to choose homes that are dimly lit on the outside, that have landscaping that provides good cover upon entry and exit, and that give no appearance of being occupied (e.g. the house has no interior lights turned on at any point during the night or that has mail and newspapers obviously piling up).

Despite the statistics, Idaho residents can protect themselves well by choosing a good home security company and using common sense.
