As professionals, we’re busier than ever and devoting more and more time to work. This means we are at home less, and our property and families could be vulnerable to thieves looking for an easy, untended mark. Your absence also leaves your home vulnerable to fire, flood, or other environmental events.
A lot of us are very busy, driving, working, emailing, texting, and on and on. In fact, according to a Gallup poll, American adults working full time put in, on average, 47 hours per week at their jobs. If you factor in commuting and errands, this means many adults are away from their houses 10-12 hours a day.
That doesn’t cover the times when we work overtime, on weekends, or travel out of town. Sometimes we don’t have any time to plan to cover security in advance. If you own your business, you may be out day and night, at unpredictable times, and virtually living out of your office or workspace.
One Less Thing To Worry You
Have you ever left the house for a busy workday and suddenly you wonder one of the following:
- Did I lock the garage door?
- Are the lights on?
- Is the thermostat up too high?
- Did I set the alarm?
If you can’t answer these questions, you have to either turn around and return home or live with uncertainty for the rest of the day. No one needs another distraction. Ideally, you want to just focus on your work and know your house and property are secure.
