With the price of petrol increasing this month, South Africans are understandably looking for ways to cut costs. Fidelity ADT would like to warn all residents however, that cutting on essentials such as home security would not be an ideal option to consider during these tough economic times.
There is a big difference between cutting on luxuries and cutting on necessities. We would strongly recommend against neglecting the safety and security of your loved ones. If you are looking around for other cheaper options, make sure you do your research properly. In this sector, cheaper is not always better.
It is important to be sure that the private security service provider you intend to appoint is reputable and has the right credentials before placing your trust in them. It is also important to make sure you have an effective perimeter security system in place, to help keep criminals off your property. Sensor-activated outdoor lights and palisade fencing are useful measures to consider.
We would further recommend setting up regular appointments with our security specialists, and ask them to do an audit of your existing security measures. This will enable you to identify where the gaps are. Also remember that your neighbours are often the first people to see if something is wrong at your home, which makes them the ideal partners in the fight against crime. Become involved with their local community safety groups as these voluntary organisations have time-and-again been proven to make a positive difference.
