About every 13 seconds, a home intrusion is commited. Each year 2 million home
burglaries are reported in the United States.1 Unfortunately, home burglary is
something everyone has or will need to think about whether if they rent or own
To safeguard your home there are many things you can do from purchasing a
security system to enlisting the help of a dog. Some individuals take comfort in
being cautious, never leaving certain things lying around their yard in plain sight or
broadcasting that they’ve bought something new like a 70-inch television or
surround sound system. I’ve even heard of individuals that don’t post on social
media when they are on vacation, if you are lounging on a beach in Hawaii then you
are definitely not at home...
Another idea that may help you deter a home burglary is to make it seem like
someone is always home. One way of achieving this effect is to use motorized
blinds. Motorized blinds can be set to a timer so that your blinds open and close
automatically at your preferred time of day. Make burglaries second guess entering
your home with motorized blinds set to give the impression that the normal daily
routine is in progress even when you are away from your home.
