Advances in Technology Combat Potential Increase in Crime

Security Choice, a leader in home security, announces technology to lessen the potential for crime during the increased daylight hours that summer brings.

According to the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report (UCR), most residential burglaries occur during daylight hours. With the summer months fast approaching, that means longer days and the potential for an increase in crime over winter months. Burglaries already occur in the United States at the rate of one every 14.6 seconds, so the potential for an increase in this statistic has home security professionals introducing technology that combats that possibility.

Cellular phone service and wireless internet providers have been promoting their rapid 4G technologies to the point that equal advances in home security might have gone unnoticed in the fanfare. For example, Security Choice, an electronic security service provider now offers advances in security technology that rival their cellular and internet counterparts when it comes to making lives more convenient.

With such advances in technology it seems that lives are getting increasingly hectic. This means the potential to dash out of the house in the morning forgetting to set the burglar alarm is a likely probability. Rather than fretting all day or making a trip back home, home security alarm providers including make it possible to remotely arm and disarm a home alarm system with the use of a cell phone or by using an app for iPhone users.

Should homeowners inadvertently leave their cell phone at home during their rush to get out the door in the morning as well as forgetting to set the alarm, that’s not a problem since advances also allow web-enabled access. This means a few keystrokes from an office computer will have a residence armed as though it was done from home.

Another step forward with regard to home security technology is the ability for security providers to send text alerts and email notifications when anything expected – or unexpected – happens at a residence so homeowners will know what’s happening without having to be there in person.

Between children being home alone for longer hours during the summer months, coupled with FBI statistics that the majority of home break-ins occur during daylight hours, these new technologies add peace of mind that previous generations of home alarms could not.

With so much emphasis being placed on upgrading cell phones and internet processing speeds, it seems that to not also take advantage of advancements in home security by either upgrading or installing a tech-savvy system might keep homeowners behind the curve when it comes to prioritizing home safety.
