Home Security in Utah

Utah MapUtahans might be surprised to find out that they face a higher-than-average likelihood of becoming a victim of property crime: 1 in every 34 residents of the state will experience burglary or other related violations of their home security and safety. Fortunately, there are a number of ways they can better protect themselves against such intrusions.

A good home security system is the best defense against home invasion and burglary in Utah. While most systems have 24/7 monitoring of all components (e.g. door and window sensors, alarms, and smoke detectors), many people are choosing affordable packages that have remote technology included. Using their smartphones, tablets, laptops, or other devices with Internet connectivity, customers can disarm home security systems, change thermostat settings, lock and unlock doors, or even see a live video feed from cameras in their homes' systems. This is especially popular for Utah residents who are regularly away from home and want the peace of mind that comes from having on-demand proof that everything at home is safe and secure.

When planning to leave homes unoccupied for longer periods of time, Utahans should make it as unlikely as possible that their residences will become a target of burglary by maintaining the impression of occupancy. For example, mail, newspapers, and other packages should either be held until owners return or collected by a willing neighbor at the end of the day. Also, arrangements should be made to maintain the exterior of the property, particularly with respect to snow removal and lawn care. Finally, some Utahans make the mistake of announcing upcoming absences on Twitter, Facebook, or other social media, letting friends and criminals alike know that their homes will be unoccupied in the near future and thus a great candidate for criminal activity.

Nonetheless, residents of Utah have many ways they can make sure that their loved ones and their belongings have as much protection as possible by choosing a good home security company and making wise decisions when leaving their homes unoccupied for a time.
