Home security is something applicable to all of us and involves the hardware in place on a property, and personal security practices. The hardware would be the doors, locks, alarm systems, lighting, motion detectors, and cameras systems that is installed on your property. Personal security practices would be ensuring doors are locked, alarms activated, windows closed and many other routine tasks which act to prevent a burglary.


Forecasts suggest the DIY home security market will be a $1.5 billion market by 2020.[1] Data from Alarm System Reports show 2 million homes were burglarized in 2014.[citation needed] In order to protect those entry points, we need to have window and door sensors. Once a burglar gets passed the first line of defense, motion detectors kick in.
