On television we see savvy criminals. These are high-tech villains with black turtlenecks, fancy cars, and complicated software on incredible computers. In the real world, criminals who can cause the most harm to your family are common burglars looking to take your property.
Most criminals are not savvy. In fact, 34% of burglars enter through the front door! Burglars are looking to get in to your house and out with your belongings as quickly as possible.
Statistically speaking, a burglar will be in a house for less than ten minutes, so the front door is often the path of least resistance.
To avoid being a part of these burglary statistics, consider these simple front door upgrades to compliment what we already believe is the best DIY security system from Honeywell.
The SkyBell® Wifi Doorbell is an incredible new technology that allows homeowners to have a full, two-way conversation with visitors to their front door.
If a neighbor, family member, or delivery person stops by and rings the bell when you’re not home, you’ll still be able to speak with them on your smartphone or tablet!
The wireless security system never turns off so you can start a live video stream at anytime, whether you’re at home or away.
The SkyBell® Wifi Doorbell will also alert you when visitors are in front of your door, whether or not the doorbell button is pressed. If a burglar is at your front door trying to pick your lock or is trying to assess whether anyone is home, you’ll know and can speak to them before they have a chance to break in.
Additionally, when your Honeywell security system is combined with 24/7 security monitoring through Alarm New England, law enforcement can be at your home in minutes.
