What is your Security Awareness  IQ?

Your awareness of the need for security could be more important than all of the locks and security systems you employ!

Security Awareness

Your awareness of the need for security, is the best place to begin a discussion on physical property security.

What is security awareness? Our definition is multi-faceted, and includes the ability to identify known and unknown threats, being aware of the technologies, products and services that can defuse those threats, knowing how to operate the products and systems you have, and most importantly the awareness that these systems must be used, and must be used all of the time.

This security awareness may be more important to the security of your home and business than any of the security hardware or systems you install. Why is this? Any lock or security system, will not do you any good unless, You use it!

An old adage states that “locks only keep honest people honest”, and is possibly very true. If the “bad guys” really want to get in, all we can really hope for is to slow them down. If you, with our help, choose and have installed the correct hardware and/or systems, we CAN slow them down – or at least discourage them from threatening your loved ones and your property.

We’ve all heard the stories, usually from older relatives, about never having to lock our doors or cars, because the town was so safe, and they knew everyone. Well it is sad to say, but those days are gone.

When people choose not to secure their property, they are not  doing only themselves a disservice, they are also hurting their community. If any one of us makes it easier for the “bad guys” to prosper, they will multiply, our communities become less safe, our property values decline, and our quality of life suffers.

Yes that’s right, if a lock is not locked, it’s only a decoration. You need to be aware of using your locks every time you leave as the “bad guys” don’t advertise what day they are coming!

In medieval times security was easy; the property owner built a castle, dug a moat, and erected a drawbridge. Today these measures are not practical, or even desired. In today’s society, if you lived in a castle, and made all of your decisions based on safety and security, you would at the very least be labeled as paranoid.

It is important that you balance the level of security you install, and how it operates, with your unique situation. You and any other persons need to fully understand how your systems operate – does it require you to lock it manually or will it fortify your property automatically. If you have too much security, you will not use it; too little security, and it will not do the job.
