McLean, Va. (Vocus) February 4, 2010
Like the Indianapolis Colts and New Orleans Saints counting down to kickoff, countless criminals are also looking for that big score on Super Bowl Sunday. But they’re not going to be on the biggest stage in sports; rather, these opportunistic criminals will take advantage of the millions of homes left empty during the big game.
If you’re traveling to a friend’s house or your local bar to watch the Super Bowl, be sure to take a page from the FrontPoint Security playbook. FrontPoint Security, the leader in DIY alarms and wireless security systems, offers the following tips to help all sports fans keep their homes safer from burglars.
Game Plan –Fundamentals – Locks and Lights
Football players watch hours of film to pinpoint their weaknesses and counter the strengths of their opponents. Before kickoff, take a good look at how you protect your home and whether your current home security game plan measures up. Like the fundamentals of blocking and tackling, be sure to follow home security fundamentals – lock your doors and leave interior and exterior lights on to discourage burglars, Once you’ve evaluated, see what areas of your home could use the added protection of a security system.
Offense – Don’t broadcast the play (especially via social media)
These days, many athletes share inside information via Facebook and Twitter; don’t do the same. When quarterbacks telegraph a play or a throw, aggressive defenders take advantage by disrupting the play, or even ‘stealing’ the ball. So don’t telegraph your play, or that you and your entire family will be away during the game (by posting on Facebook, Twitter, or other social media). It might as well be an invitation for those burglars.
Defense – Protect the End zone – Protect your home
Every player knows, defense wins championships. And it’s no different with home protection. While, a winning defense features pro-bowl linemen, linebackers, and cornerbacks, FrontPoint offers championship level protection through wireless sensors, cellular monitoring, and next generation features. And like the coach of any super bowl team, FrontPoint has a deep bench of expert security ‘coaches’ who can help you create the perfect security game plan for your home.
So don’t leave your home without a strong security game plan.
