We are currently in the midst of hurricane season, which, in the sunbelt of the U.S., typically lasts from the beginning of June to the end of November. The southern states have experienced their fair share of hurricanes over the last few years, and unfortunately, Greenville, SC, is no exception. Though the city is more inland than other South Carolina cities, this does not always completely protect our community from the impacts of these storms. And while you can’t stop a hurricane from touching down near your home or community, you can take crucial steps in protecting your home and property in the event that one does strike.
Often during hurricanes, the best way to ensure the safety of you and your loved ones is to evacuate the affected area. This decision, however, can lead to unintended consequences. Looters can view an unattended home during a hurricane as an opportunity to invade and carry off valuable items, like electronics, jewelry, and other precious family property.
To protect your home and the valuables within it, consider adding an intrusion detection system. Homes with security systems are much less likely to be broken into than those without them, as intruders know the risks that come with entering a protected home. In addition, if an intruder does decide to enter your home, an alarm can be triggered so that the authorities are alerted. Thus, even if you are away during a hurricane, an authority figure could quickly be on the scene to protect your home and stand between the intruder and your property.
During hurricane season, sometimes the only way to protect your home from afar is via an intrusion detection system. Protect your home and your valuables by adding one to your home today. To find out more about the different types of home security systems that are available, please contact us.
