I Had to Take Some Important Steps to Keep My House Safe Each Day

When I bought my first house, I was so excited. I’ve loved everything about having a place that is my own. I didn’t realize that I moved next door to a very bad neighbor at first, though. At some point, I realized I needed to get an ADT alarm system for my own safety. Now that I have it, I do feel more secure. I wish that it didn’t have to be this way, but any time that you think something may be amiss about your own security, it is always the best to take the route of being safe. Taking simple steps can help keep you from being very sorry later on.

When I moved into the neighborhood, nothing seemed amiss at first. All of my neighbors seemed really great. What I did not know is that there is a long pattern of trouble that spans over many year’s time with the guy who lives directly next door to me. I learned this about a year after I moved in and I saw him having trouble with quite a few other people in the neighborhood. He threatened a lot of different people, and I wondered how I was escaping his wrath so easily. That changed just months later when he threatened me as well. I had never dealt with something like this before, and I had no idea what I should do.

I quickly found that I worried about my house each when I went to work. I have to go to work each day, and I felt that made my house and easy to target if my neighbor followed through on his threats. I decided to install some home security cameras, which I knew would be helpful. I also knew those wouldn’t stop someone from breaking in, though. So, the very next week, I had an alarm system installed as well. Between both of those things, I feel that my house is much more safe when I have to leave it each day.
