It’s the most wonderful time of the year, but the holiday season also witnesses a marked increase in home burglaries and fires. Fortunately, there are many ways to protect your family and your home, and Crime Intervention Alarm is happy to help.

Experts agree that criminals often seek homes that are easy to break in, so if your house is difficult to burglarize, criminals will move on to the next location.

Simple precautionary measures like locking your doors at all times and keeping your travel plans off of social media are helpful, but a home security system may be exactly what you need for peace of mind this holiday season. Crime Intervention Alarm offers home security systems that feature window and door contacts, as well as motion detectors, glass break detectors and much, much more.

Video surveillance cameras are another effective way to safeguard your home and protect your valuables. With the holiday season well underway, stories of package theft from home porches are pervading the news.
