How to Prevent Theft
Use Common Sense!
- If you lose a key, get the locks changed.
- Ask all strangers for identification.
- Never hide an extra key outdoor - especially underneath a mat or on top of a light fixture. This is the first place the bad guys look. Leave an extra house key with a friend or a neighbour.
- DO NOT advertise on Facebook or other social media that you are on vacation.
- For insurance purposes take photos of the contents of your home.
- Keep all receipts in a safe and easy to find location.
- Write down the model and the serial number of all electronics.
- Make it Difficult
- Door chains are easy to bypass. Install deadbolts.
- Install a stopper or stick on all sliding doors and windows.
- Install window bars on all basement windows.
- Make sure all doors and windows are properly locked.
- Keep your premises well lit at night.
- Install timers that turn lights on at different times. This gives the appearance that someone is home.
Install a monitored Home Security system and you are 400% less likely to have a break-in.
You will receive up to 25% insurance discount. and optional ALARM.COM with automatic lights.
In case you do have a break-in:
If it looks like a door or window was forced open, DO NOT go inside. The burglar may still be on site.
Call the Police from your cellular phone or from a neighbour's house and wait.

Every year we head to Vegas to attend ISCWest. With 1000 exhibitors and 30,000 security geeks it's the largest Security Expo in North America.
The near future is all about smart security cameras and video management software with Artificial Intelligence (AI). It's getting close to what you see on TV shows like CSI. One example is Face Appearance Search by Avigilon. The software is so smart it can quickly search for the Face of a Person at a site. In the example below the Avigilon representative chooses a thumbnail image of the person he wants to find and the recorded video with the persons face displays immediately. If you look closely, the person he is looking for is on the far right and has an identification box. This is ideal for high traffic locations such as schools, airports, hospitals, government and office buildings.
