Now that summer is slowly winding down (it is, I’m a little in denial too, but it is!), families are getting back into the routine of day-to-day life with school, work, activities and gatherings. Our routines start to form in September for the rest of the new school year.
While we go on with our day-to-day lives, others may sometimes be aware as well. Did you know that most burglaries take place between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.? Contrary to popular belief, the majority of home burglaries take place during daylight hours, not at night. That’s because most people are at work or school—which reduces the chance the burglar will be noticed. Just last weekend on my neighbourhood Facebook group, a member shared that his camera equipment was taken from his vehicle at 9:30 on Sunday morning, just as he went back in his house for a few minutes. It’s infuriating to hear stories like this. My first comment was, “Do you or your neighbours have security cameras installed?” It’s a great way to hopefully find some information on a potential thief.
We have had our Alarm Force home security system in our household since April, and it’s been so nice knowing that our home has that extra level of protection, whether I’m in the backyard with the girls in the afternoon or we’re away in Alberta visiting family. We’ve never had a home security system before, and now after having one we won’t ever go back to being unprotected.
If you’ve been curious about home security systems in general, or are looking to change things up with your current system, join me for the Alarm Force Twitter Party on Sunday night at 9 p.m. ET (7 p.m. Central). We’ll be sharing a wealth of information on Alarm Force, home security, and their products as well as some great giveaways just for attending and chatting with us! I have $600 in Visa Gift Cards total to give away, along with our grand prize of a one year monitored subscription to Alarm Force with a CONNECT Bundle (value $500+)!
No RSVP necessary, just pop on by and join in the conversation! Follow myself @RealTenille, our awesome moderator Rossana @RossanaWyatt and of course @AlarmForceInc and note our hashtag #AFcommunity so you don’t miss out on any of the conversation. See you there for our 1 hour chat Sunday night!
*Open to Canadian residents only, please see official Twitter Party rules here.
