Common Myths About Residential Security

Home > Security Solutions Blog > Common Myths About Residential Security

Here at Safe N Sound Inc., we have extensive experience in both commercial and residential security, and we have encountered our fair share of misinformation about both. In this article, we will focus on home security, going over a few of the most common myths we have come across about the topic and replacing them with accurate information.

Common Myths About Residential Security

  • Myth: It won’t happen to me. The most common mistaken belief that people hold about residential security is that they don’t need to worry about it, as nothing bad could ever happen to them. Most people like to think that they take reasonable precautions to keep themselves and their homes safe, but many nevertheless hold this unconscious belief that they will be safe no matter what. We encourage you to challenge this belief and invest in a high-quality security system to replace the illusion of safety with the real thing.
  • Myth: A dog is as good as a security system.  While many dogs will try to protect their humans from intruders, they require specialized training in order to deter burglars effectively, and they are not an adequate security measure in and of themselves. For best results, we recommend using a security system that incorporates a variety of strategies to keep your home safe, rather than relying on just one.
  • Myth: My home is too remote to be a target. While you may think that living far away from your neighbors makes potential burglars less likely to target your home—with the idea being that it’s too much work to get to your home to be worth their while—the reality is that rural homes are just as likely to be burglarized as urban ones. The distance from other houses means that your neighbors are less likely to be alerted, which can make your home an attractive mark.
