Long gone are the days when you could leave the key in the front door of your house or you could pop up 10 minutes and you could leave a sign on the door saying ‘back in 10 minutes.’ We need to be much more aware of our surroundings nowadays because there is always someone who is trying to find an easy Mark and who doesn’t want to do a full day’s work like you and your family do every single day. There are opportunist thieves everywhere and all they need is an inch so they can take a mile.
It is unfortunate but many households and many businesses have had to increase the security around our properties in order to protect what is rightfully theirs. To find out what is currently available to you, your employees and your family, you should really reach out to your local security company (known as บริษัท รักษาความปลอดภัย in Thai) to get a broad idea of the services that are currently available. The following are just some of those.
- Security guards – You might have the best alarm system in the world and the best camera system, but it’s hard to beat a real life person guarding your property round-the-clock. People can easily avoid cameras and alarm systems, but there is no way to get past the security guard without them seen or hearing them. This doesn’t take away from an alarm system or security cameras because they do an excellent job.
- Neighborhood watch – Many people constantly complain that their neighbors are incredibly nosy, but in this situation, it may work in your favor. Setting up a neighborhood watch program might be what is required and the wonderful thing is that everyone is looking out for everyone else. Alongside your security guard, this is a surefire way to keep opportunist thieves out of your housing development.
- Get a dog – Your dog will always have your back and when you and your family are sleeping sound in your beds, your dog will be constantly on patrol securing the perimeter and reacting to any noise around your property. They have an excellent sense of hearing and smell, so if any strangers are around, they will chase them away immediately.
These are just three ideas that you could use to provide better security around your home and there are numerous more. It is unfortunate that you have to consider these plans but it is the world we live in and so we need to accept it.
