Personal Security Guards:
For those with a home or asset that is very valuable, you may look to hire the services of a security guard. Generally, cameras, alarms and deadbolts will do the trick against unwanted intruders, but if you are looking for additional peace of mind, a patrol guard could be for you. Even if you are only going out of town for a night and have really valuable contents you need protected. They can also assist with alarm activations. Places we recommend to hire security guards include:
Door locks and deadbolts
Locking your door is the best way to prevent people from coming into your house against your will. And a deadbolt is the only way to "really" lock your door.
