Effective Home Defense Products
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

The demand for home defense products is rising and according to the media this has to do with the high unemployment rates.

In a recession, when jobs are lost, most of the time the crime rates will go up.

This makes is more and more useful to have a look at our house as a possible subject for a break in, or even a home invasion.

When you start looking for the most effective home security products most of the time the advice is to buy yourself a gun.

Although I have nothing against guns and own a few myself I think they are the last home defense product to use.

Besides the fact that there are all kind of legal problems you can run into by shooting a burglar, it is my personal opinion that there are other home protection products we can use before reaching for a gun.

The disadvantage of a gun is that it is only effective if you wear it all the time.

It does not make sense to keep it in the bedroom and hopefully you have time to grab it on time.

home defense products are available in all sorts and price ranges.

From a sophisticated multiple camera system with DVR recording to a simple door alarm on the front door.

That means that the answer to the question what the most effective home defense product is, can not be answered by choosing for one single products.

We have to find out what the product is for our specific situation.

My advise most of the time is to take a walk around your house, business or other property you think needs any form of home security products.

By walking around you should try to look through the eyes of a possible burglar and decide what the easiest way is to get inside your property.

Taking into consideration that in most cases a burglar does not want to be seen or heard.

Thinking like a burglar, makes it understandable that the backdoor and the garage door are the favorite spots to enter a house for a burglar.

Most of the time the back door can not be seen from the road and the garage door is easy to open.

Once in the garage they are out of sight and if there is any noise to make to get inside, people can still not see them.

This means that it makes sense that one of the most effective home protection products probably is a door or window alarm.

After all they have to use a door or window to get in

Like mentioned before it all depends on you specific situation.

And the only one who can decide is you and maybe a safety adviser you can hire.

Common sense is sometimes all you need to make the right decision.

If you have a house that is far away from the road you might need an alarm that is connected to an alarm company.

On the other hand if you live in town, maybe the only home defense products you need is a door or window alarm, to make it less attractive for a burglar.

Look at your house or business and make sure it is has some form of home defense products installed. Make it harder for a burglar to get in without being noticed.
