Despite the 6,000 burglaries that occur every day, according to Alarm Systems Report, there are ways to make your home or rental less of a target. An alarm system and surveillance cameras may deter burglars from wreaking havoc not only on your home, but on your peace of mind.

Our team at Valor of the Lake Alarms, Inc. is local to Lake Arrowhead and we understand that many of the homes in our area are vacation homes. Our alarm systems and surveillance camera systems allow us to assist you in home and rental protection in several capacities, including company monitoring options for when you are not present, rapid response from local authorities, and immediate alerts sent to your smartphone. 

How Alarm Systems and Surveillance Protect Your Property

Alarms and surveillance cameras allow your home or vacation rental to be protected even if you are not there. They have the option for remote monitoring, for alerts to be sent if there is activity, and for any potential burglars to know that they are on camera-which is a deterrent in itself. Alarm systems provide early warnings and rapid response from local law enforcement, which are invaluable if a burglar enters your home or vacation property when it is occupied. Alarm systems allow our team at Valor of the Lake Alarms, Inc. to monitor your home or vacation rental for you, if you choose, and to provide comprehensive protection for your property. 

Surveillance cameras can warn you of unexpected visitors, help you to monitor your children if they are out front or back while you are inside, and allow you to watch for deliveries or the arrival of rental guests. In addition, surveillance systems not only protect your home or rental itself, but the area in front of the property. This is a great feature if you are concerned about vehicle break-ins or if other properties in your neighborhood have fallen victim to burglaries. Cameras can capture the comings and goings of guests, and if there is a pattern of unwanted attention to your property, you have the foresight that can help you to better protect your home. Quite often, burglars will stake out properties or vehicles prior to the actual break-in. A surveillance system is an early warning system when such activity is captured.

Alarms, Surveillance and Other Burglar Deterrents

Cameras and effective alarms are one way to protect your home and vacation rental, but using these with a combination of other things is even more effective.

There are several things that can help keep your home from being a target, including:

  • Keep your property well lit and consider daytime and nighttime lighting timers. 
  • Vary your schedule so that your home does not have a predictable schedule for people being there.
  • Keep your home from being covered by tall trees, shrubs, and fencing. This allows neighbors to keep an eye on the coming and going of visitors.
  • Consider pets; a big dog, or just a loud dog, is a deterrent in itself. 
  • If you are securing a vacation rental, be sure to discuss sharing responsibility for your neighbors, so that you can look out for each other’s property when the other is not there.
