When you consider the different types of security measures that you can employ, the decisions usually come down to alarms and cameras or security doors and gates, maybe there being a combination of the two. Many people with security systems do not want to "make their home look like a prison" with security doors made our of iron, or bars on their windows. What you have to understand first is that the old versions of security doors that were made exclusively of iron bars are a thing of the past, and you can now choose from elegant designs that will actually improve the appearance of your entryway in addition to giving it a higher level of security. The other thing that you must consider is that security alarms are only effective once entry has been made to the home. Once the bugler is inside, there will be a few minutes that go by before the security system will alert the police, and there will be an additional amount of time before the police arrive. Most professional thieves know that time frame well, and are in and out of the house long before the police arrive. Usually you are left with watching the security camera footage, and seeing the person in a mask or hoodie robbing your house while there is nothing done about it. Police rarely catch these bad guys unless they find your property in their house or car, and thieves will usually dispose of the items long before ever getting caught.
If this sounds futile, it actually isn't. The most effective form of home security is entry way doors and gates made from iron. The reason these are so effective at preventing break ins is that they cover the points of entry to the home that are typically the weak points exploited by criminals. The typical entry point is a cheap wooden door that can be kicked in, or a glass window that can be broken. Cover these points of entry with welded and reinforced iron and you make it so that the entry is far more difficult. Almost every criminal is going to simply move on to the next soft target, which is literally the house a few doors down with no iron security doors!
As Las Vegas grows in population, so does our crime rate. There are more break ins happening now than ever before. Protect yourself and your family against crime by installing iron security doors and gates, the most effective measure against crime in residential neighborhoods.
