Summer Time Security – 4 Tips to Secure You Home This Summer

In Economics, a popular example of “correlation is not causation” is the strange relationship between ice cream sales and crime rates.

You read that correctly, ice cream sales and crime rates.

While ice cream sales and crime rates do increase around the same time every year, this examples serves as a reminder that just because two trends regularly occur around the same time, they do not have to be directly related in any way.

In short, ice cream sales have nothing to do with increased crime rates.

It turns out the reason for these two trends is really quite simple: it’s hot in the summer.

When it is hot, people want ice cream, which is obvious.

In turn, it has been discovered that the extreme heat of the summer months makes people more ornery and less patient, hence the rise in crime rates.

See? No relation.

Temperatures and Tempers Rising

The truth is that we are cranky in the sweltering heat, especially in the unforgiving Middle Tennessee inferno. Unfortunate as it may be, some people have less-than-favorable ways of dealing with heat-induced anger, putting your home at a higher risk of an invasion.

You need to be prepared for this volatile time of year, and you can start by following this tips:

Let Your Security System Do Its Job

If you have a security system, use it. It is not enough to just have a yard sign, and it is downright surprising how many people believe the mere presence of a security system is enough to ward off potential invaders. In basic terms, an unarmed is useless if it fails as a visual deterrent. Let the system that you paid for do its job and keep you and your family safe.

Look Into a Security System

Don’t have a security system? It might be time to arm your home 24/7 with professional level protection from break-ins.

As mentioned earlier, the old “yard sign trick” is basically setting yourself up for disaster. There are countless benefits to a home security system, and statistics prove that they really do work (I know, who would have thought?).

If you are looking for a trusted professional to install your new home security system, be sure to contact Powerlink, LLC in Murfreesboro, TN today.

Keep Vacation Plans Quiet

You will have plenty of time to share photos and stories of your summer vacation when you return, so it is best not to broadcast that you will be leaving your home unattended for any length of time. Keep in mind all the people that you don’t know on social media that could see your potential travel plans. Burglars know that people vacation in the summer and they know the signs to look for. Take steps to make your home appear “lived in” while you are on vacation, and again, arm your system!

Always Choose a Professional

When it comes to your home security system, always choose a proven professional with a history of protecting homes. Ask around, read reviews, do your research – your safety is worth the time it takes to find the right installer.
