| Many years ago, way back in college, my best friend went through something no one should ever have to endure. The one thing every girl fears, every father dreads: an attack. She was living in a campus dorm. She put her personal security and safety in the hands of the Resident Advisors and her fellow class mates. That night she went to bed with the dorm room door locked. The outside doors were locked and only those students who live in that dorm were supposed to have access. What she didn’t know was that someone in the building was throwing a party and had propped open a fire door to let friends in the building past the security guards. Her roommate left in the night to go to the party and left the room unlocked. The rest can be imagined and sadly couldn’t leave her mind for years.

After the attack, she moved off campus to an apartment. One stipulation in her lease was that she could add locks to her doors. She never felt safe after that night. She couldn’t sleep, and when she would, she’d have nightmares. She felt helpless and we felt helpless as her friends to help her. No amount of counseling or support could help her feel more secure. For her birthday I bought her a puppy. I thought it would give her company and, if nothing else, give her an extra layer of defense.
Home Security System - Installs
As we got older, and got better jobs, she bought an amazing house. It was what she had always wanted. A two story house that reminded her of a fairytale cottage with a fenced in back yard for the dog. The biggest investment she added was a home security system. She really did her research. She installed a home security system that monitored her doors, her windows, even her yard. It was way cool. She had home security system control panels installed at both doors and even the bedrooms so she could control the system. The home security system saved her 20% on her homeowner’s insurance and best of all, it gave her peace of mind. For the first time in almost ten years, she can sleep through the night knowing that she is safe. If someone were to try to break in, there is no way they’d be able to attack her again.

Even though the rest of us in this circle of friends never had to live through all that she has gone through, we followed her example and had home security systems installed in our own homes. Now, no matter who hosts the party, we all know that we are safe from someone attacking us. If an home security system alarm sounds, help is on the way in minutes, even if we can’t call for help.
