Prevent Home Break Ins While on Vacation

Summer 2021 Is (Nearly) Here!

As we publish this, summer 2021 is fast approaching. Spring weather has turned into summer weather. Pools are open. School are nearly done for the year. And as the USA is slowly opening back up after a pandemic year, families are most ready than ever to hit the road and take a vacation.

Go on Vacation Without Worry

Homeowners who travel leave behind a huge asset: their home that they love, care for and have invested a ton of money into. This is why protecting the home you love and everything in it is important. A burglary, or break Ins will leave you feeling violated and attacked!

Who doesn’t want to go on vacation this summer, without worry?!

We all want this right?

Reduce the Risks and Make Your Home Less Attractive

In order for a burglar to ‘skip your home’ and move onto the next, you need to be proactive!  Make your home less attractive to a potential criminal.

Reducing the risk of a break ins and making it harder and less attractive for a burglar to target you, is not a difficult task. It does take a bit of planning and action on your part. We are going to give you several actionable ways you can help prevent a home break in while on vacation.

How To Prevent Home Break Ins While on Vacation

In previous blog articles, we’ve shared our best summer security tips. It’s always good to revisit some of these tips and hints as we enter the next summer. We know as you do, that family circumstances changes quickly!

Going on Vacation? Read this Today!

The following 5 action items should be high on your list of things to do to prepare before going on your next family vacation. Whether you go away for the weekend and stay close to home, vacation somewhere for two weeks in South Carolina or take a cross-country trip, these tips apply to you! It takes less than a minute for most burglars to get into your home and only 8-12 minutes to get back out and get away!

1 Make it Look Like Someone is Home

When you leave your home unattended for an extended period of time, make it look like someone is home. Leave a dog toy or two out, a child’s ball, and put your indoor and outdoor lights on timers! Arrange with a neighbor or friend to come pick up mail, packages and return your garbage can back to your home. Alternatively, you can have the USPS hold your mail. Don’t forget to notify your newspaper delivery person too because nothing says ‘we are on vacation’ like a bunch of unread newspaper on your front lawn!

home security going on vacation tip

2 Clear Shrubbery That Is Close to Your Home

Large shrubs and trees that aren’t trimmed, can hide a person (i.e. a criminal) making it easier for them to enter your home undetected. Before going on your next trip, cut back branches and trim that shrubbery!

home security going on vacation tip

3 Activate a Monitored Alarm System

If you have an alarm system, activate it. This might seem one of the ‘silliest’ action items, but you’d be surprised home many homes with alarm systems are broken into undetected because the system wasn’t activated! Make activating your system a habit and a priority! Teach everyone who routinely enters your home to activate your system: it will little room for error!

home security going on vacation tip

4 Install Deadbolts on Front and Back Doors

Making it harder for a determined burglar to breakin usually results in the burglar moving on to the next (read: easier) target! Therefore, investing in new deadbolts might make a lot of sense. The longer it takes for someone to enter the home, the more likely they are to move on to another home.

home security going on vacation tip

5 Utilize Security Cameras and Monitor with an App

We recommend (and install) security cameras for your home. Ideally, your cameras should be strategically placed in and around your home and be connect to your monitored system. While a monitored alarm system should give you the highest level of comfort and security, monitoring your own cameras at the same time, allowes for additional visual queues of potential danger!

Take That Family Trip and Enjoy It!

We wish you and your family a gorgeous summer and a wonderful and memorable trip, no matter where you go. Go with peace of mind, knowing your assets are protected and monitored by the best!

Keeping Kids and Pets Safe and Secure at Home

Families Need to Feel Safe and Secure at Home!

Do you have kids? How about pets? Are you expecting a new addition to your family soon? Many of our blog readers and customers have families. We do too! We have three teenagers and we an adorable dog named Henry: you might have visited our office and met him.

During the pandemic, many families adopted new pets as they had more time to spend at home! Having a new family pet brings joy and laughter, but also new responsibility and safety and security hazards.

While we as adults can certainly have accidents at home, we generally know how to keep ourselves safe and secure. It’s a little different for kids and pets: they love to explore new things, and by nature, are curious about the world around them. It’s even more important to set some safety rules and guidelines when you have both kids and pets!

In honor of National Kids and Pets Day on April 26, 2021, we present this article with tips to keep your kids and pets safe at home.

National Kids and Pets Day is April 26, 2021

From National Day Calendar:

“National Kids and Pets Day on April 26th raises awareness of the importance of picking the right pet for children at the right time. It’s an important decision that can lead to a lifetime of bonding between pet and child.

The day also celebrates the bonds children and pets can share and a day remember safety where our pets and children are concerned. There are many benefits of having a pet in a child’s life. From fostering natural nurturing abilities to developing responsibilities, pets have a lifelong impact on a child’s development.

It is also important to remember that small children as well as the pets may not know their limitations and should not be left alone with each other. They should always be supervised to prevent injury to both the child and the animal.”

Safety Rules and Guidelines To keep Kids and Pets Safe at Home!

Never leave kids and pets alone, unsupervised.

This includes indoor as well as outdoor play time! Kids and pets needs to have an adult nearby to supervise their playtime and while it’s tempting to leave the room to take care of chores, don’t. Pets are unpredictable and they can get triggered by your child’s behavior. Take your child with you when moving from room to room, or separate the child and animal (crate or gate, or even closed room) when you are not able to supervise.

Outdoors, always supervise around pools, and in the yard!

kids and pets need constant supervision

Teach your child to not disturb your pet when the pet is sleeping, eating or chewing a toy.

A pet needs to feel safe and secure and when their sleep, feeding time or playtime is interrupted, they can get annoyed, or even aggressive. To avoid this happening, teach your child to leave the pet alone during these activities.

teach child not to disturb pet

Don’t allow a child to touch (or play with) a pets’ waste as it carries disease

Cat litter boxes look like fun sandboxes to young children. Cat’s waste carries disease and you do not want your child to play with the cat’s waste. At the same time, a dog carries diseases as well: teach a child the proper way to dispose of a dog’s poop.

children should never touch a pet's waste

No rough housing or teasing

While you may play games with your dog or cat that can be labeled ‘roughhousing’, don’t allow your child to play those same games. It is most likely that you as the adult in the home are the alpha. A dog or cat will accept certain dominant behavior from you, the alpha, but not from a child that is smaller. To avoid this happening, avoid playing these types of games in front of the children, as they often emulate what they see! Games to avoid include tug-of-war, picking up the pet and spraying it with a hose.

kids should not tease pets

Dog Bite Statistics To Wrap your Head Around!

It’s hard not to mention dog bites when we talk about kids, pets and safety. Prevention is so very important and that is why supervision of kids and pets at all times is THE MOST important rule to stick to!

Here are some crazy statistic to wrap you head around.

  • According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Humane Society of the United States, there are about 4.7 million dog bites every year in the U.S. These bites result in approximately 16 fatalities.
  • Approximately 800,000 people seek medical attention for dog bites in the U.S. every year — about 1,000 people require emergency care for dog bite injuries every day (according to a study produced by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality).
  • About half of those injured in dog attacks are children. The rate of dog bite accidents is highest for those between the ages of 5-9 (according to the American Veterinary Medical Association).
  • Nearly 2/3 of injuries among children ages 4 and younger are to the head or neck region, because of their height. Injuries are higher for boys than for girls.
  • According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, the number of Americans hospitalized for dog bites nearly doubled over a 15-year period. The average cost of a dog bite-related hospital stay was $18,200. There were 4 times as many dog bite-related ER visits and 3 times as many hospital stays in rural areas than in urban areas.

Prevention is the Key to Keeping Kids and Pets Safe at Home

Installing security cameras is one way to help the adults in your home keep an eye on kids and pets, but it should not replace in-person supervision.

Teaching children the right to play and care for a pet is another important safety measure.

We love our children and we love our pets. We know you do too! Stay safe and secure in your own home at all times!

Springtime Home Security Tips for Homeowners

Spring is Here!

As the south heats up, we spend a lot more time outside. When we spend more time outside, our home opens up as well and new security issues can arise as we might be a bit more careless around our home as far as security and personal safety is concerned!

Enjoy your Spring days, but don’t let your guard down.

3 Springtime Home Security and Safety Tips!

Whether you live in South Carolina, or elsewhere, take head and prevent crime and personal tragedies by taking safety and security measures before accidents and crime happen!

1 Open Doors and Windows Invite Trouble!

open window

Open doors and unlocked and open windows invite trouble. Criminals always look ofr easy ways in and if you don’t know this statistic, it should scare you just a bit:

Most burglaries happen between the hours of 10 AM – 2PM.

That means during the day when you least expect it and when your guard is down. Therefore, always alarm your home, even if you are home and don’t leave doors unlocked and windows open when you do leave.

2 Swimming Pools and Personal Safety

While swimming pools in the south offer relief from heat and humidity, they are a safety hazard for families with kids. Did you know that children ages 1 to 4 have the highest drowning rates?

Tips to help your family stay safe in  and around the water

  • Supervise When in or Around Water. Designate a responsible adult to watch young children while in the pool and all children swimming or playing in or around water. Supervisors of preschool children should provide “touch supervision”, be close enough to reach the child at all times. Because drowning occurs quickly and quietly, adults should not be involved in any other distracting activity (such as reading, playing cards, talking on the phone, or mowing the lawn) while supervising children.
  • Use the Buddy System. Always swim with a buddy.

3 Prevent Bike Theft!

secure your bike

When the weather cooperates, we tend to want to go outside and exercise. While bikes may have been locked up all winter, now that it’s springtime, these are parked either outside or in an open garage.

Bikes are an easy ‘steal’ for a criminal looking for a quick win.

Don’t want your bikes to disappear? Alarm your home and your garage, install security cameras, like the Ring camera and keep an eye on your property at all times, even when you aren’t home!

Don’t Be Fooled: 3 Cyber Security Tips to Prevent Crime

Don’t Be Fooled While You Cruise the Internet!

As we spend more time online, Cyber Security continues to be a threat to our security, our finances and even our personal well-being.

We can easily be fooled, and you don’t have to be a teenager of senior citizen to fall for online scams or phishing attempt. It can happen to anybody, at any time!

In today’s article, we will outline several of the most common ways criminals fool folks like you and me!

1 Social Media Business Imposters

One of the most common scams is imposters pretending to be someone they are not.

One example is when a well-known brand is running a giveaway or contest. An imposter duplicates this brand, even going as far as creating a landing page for the fake contest! Next, they start messaging the followers of the real brand, telling those followers that ‘they won’, and asking them to log in, or click a link.

Don’t fall for fake social media accounts! Don’t engage with them, click a link or give out your password.

Instead, take a good look at the account that’s messaging you:

  • are they set to public? (if it’s set to private, it’s fake)
  • do they have followers?
  • What other content are they sharing?

When in doubt, don’t click! It’s fairly easy to spot a fake once you are on the lookout and you are aware!

2 Social Media Fake Accounts

There are also plenty of people pretending to be one thing and then really not being that person. There are bots and fake accounts all over the internet.

You can spot fake personal accounts by checking the date they joined that platform, who their friends are, and if their settings are set to the point you can’t find out anything about them. If that’s the case, most likely they are hiding something

The main purpose of fake social media accounts is to get close to you to try to influence your decisions and gain access to accounts and financial information, or to reach someone else who is in your circle of friends.

Make a rule not to friend anyone you don’t know or haven’t met in real life, or anyone who has just a few friends.

If someone you’ve just met starts messaging you and you don’t like it, block them and cut ties with that person or bot immediately.

3 Phishing Attempts

A phishing attempt looks like the following: an official-looking email comes to your inbox, stating that your bank, your Facebook, your credit card… need to be reverified. That they lost information. That you need to re-enter your password, or your social security number, or you need to log in. Never, ever, ever click on email like that.

Instead, go to the source on the internet. Go to your BROWSER and log in to your bank, your credit card account or Facebook to see if there are any messages or warnings there. If not, it was a phishing attempt!

4 Online Grooming

Be aware of  those with bad intentions. While someone might seems ok, it’s easy to create false accounts and pretend to be someone you are not.

If you have teenagers and elderly parents, talk to them about the signs of online grooming by experienced criminals to get control over you, your financials and your life. They might gain access to an important accounts,  eventually blackmailing you into giving them access to everything.

It might seem that this person loves you, but in reality they are just a criminal trying to take advantage of you.

Signs to look for when suspecting online grooming happening to you or a loved one:

  • Send you lots of messages.
  • Ask you to keep your conversations secret.
  • Try to find out more.
  • Start sending you sexual messages.
  • Get you to share personal information.
  • Try to blackmail you.

5 Account Hacking

Last but not least, secure all your accounts with 2 factor authentication aka 2FA.

It’s offered to prevent hacking. Online giants such as Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, banks and most other financial institutions urge you to use 2FA to prevent hacking.

Set up 2FA on all accounts. Use it. Encourage others in your household to do the same.

It can save you from losing your account, money and access to important account.

3 Valentine’s Day Tips To Secure Your Home While You Are Celebrating

valentine's day tips to keep your home secure

Do You Have Plans for Valentine’s Day?

Happy Valentine’s Day! We wish you a wonderful day with the one you love. How will we spend Valentine’s Day?  We will take time to be with our family!

Valentine’s Day is a great time to stop and thank those we love and those who have a daily impact on our lives.

At Strand Security, we love our customers, we love our staff and we love our community.

Valentine’s Day is a great time to let someone know you care. And what says ‘I care’ more than helping someone stay safe and secure? Here are 3 tips to secure your home while you are celebrating Valentine’s Day, or not!

via GIPHY

 1. Don’t Announce Your Valentine’s Day Plans Online

It seems so simple! Yet many people, teenagers and adults, make this mistake: they will announce their plans to go somewhere, online! Criminals do monitor social media and someone might see your post and know you are away for the day or the evening!

Posting your Valentine’s Day plans online is just not a smart move. Instead, wait until you are home to post pictures or a status.

It’s a simple way to secure your home and we certainly don’t wish a burglary on anyone! Holidays are prime days for criminals: they know people are excited, distracted and often let their guard down. Don’t be that person that is targeted!

2. Arm your System When You Leave

If you have plans to go out and celebrate Valentine’s Day, please remember to do this one thing! Nothing will spoil your day or night quicker than coming home to a home that’s been burglarized!

Before you leave for the day or evening, remember to arm your system. It’s a simple thing to do but an equally simple thing to forget as you rush out the door to make it to a romantic dinner. 😉

Arm your system before you leave and have a fantastic date, worry-free.

3. Arm Your System When You Stay In!

Now if you have prepared a lovely backyard Valentine’s Day dinner, or any other home cooked family meal, don’t forget to arm you home! If you are distracted and busy in the home, you still would want your home to be armed, especially if you are in the backyard, or occupied somewhere in the house not near a entrance way. It’s a good habit to get into: arm your home when you are home!

Valentine’s Day Is All About Love!

Nothing says “I love you” more than keeping those you love safe and sound and caring enough to to action.

If you do not have an alarm system in your home, we encourage you to consider the possibilities! Come talk to us and protect those you love.

Crime Happens: How To Deter a Criminal From Targeting You

Crime Happens: How To Deter a Criminal From Targeting You

Crime Happens in Myrtle Beach!

If you live in South Carolina or the Myrtle Beach area, it should come as no surprise to learn that crime happens in our area. We are a transient community with millions of tourists who flock to our shores, and golf courses. That tourist activity invites criminal activity.

Crime happens.

In this article we will give a few tips on how to deter a criminal from target you!

Take Safety and Security Precautions

If a burglar really wants to clean you out and rob you, s/he will and not much will stop them. However, more often than not, criminals will ‘case’ a house and if they see security precautions in place, they will skip you as a target and move on to the next house!

Ways to deter a criminal from targeting your home:

Ways to deter a criminal from targeting your car:

  • install a car alarm
  • lock the doors
  • park it inside your garage
  • or park it on your driveway and install motion-detecting lights.

Next, let’s talk about personal safety!

To Deter Being a Target to Criminals: Look and Act Confident

Always, always, always be aware of your surroundings. Whether you are in a parking lot, busy mall, or going for a run: know who is near you and know where you are going! Looking and acting confident is a good way to deter a criminal from choosing you as their next target.

We further recommend self-defense classes for anyone and all.

The first lesson in self-defense is awareness of your surroundings. Keep your head up, no headphones or talking on your phone while walking in busy places, and know where you are going.

Stopping a robbery or preventing one starts with awareness!

Partner Up with Neighbors and Friends

Last but not least, criminals want an easy target and prefer a lonely target.

When running, or shopping, try to team up with a neighbor or friend.

At the same time, starting a neighborhood watch program is a great way to look out for one another. Sharing information with neighbors about potential criminal activity, and letting your neighbors know when you are away can also prevent crime. Partnering up is a smart way to keep yourself safe and secure.

When Crime Does Happen

If you have an alarm system, and it’s monitored, even if a crime does happen, you have the peace of mind that help is on the way! We highly recommend a monitored system which will alert authorities, in the event you are incapacitated. This can save lives as second, minutes count when crime happens!

If you have concerns about your security or personal safety, comes talk to us. We can customize a system that works for your home, your family or your business!

We are only a phone call away.

Home Security Trends To Watch for in 2021

home security trends 2021

Happy 2021! While we may not all be happy where we are in this pandemic, at least we can say there seems to be a light at the end of the (long) tunnel.

The 2020 COVID-19 Pandemic has affected everything we do.

How and where we

  • work
  • learn
  • shop
  • live

The housing market is booming, and so is marketing, outdoor equipment sales and home improvement, just to name a few industries!

In contrasts, the airline industry is in trouble, along with travel and restaurants.

We are seeing new trends and new technology take hold because of the changed circumstances we live in. Today, we’d like to look at 4 home security trends to look for in 2021!

1. Increased Demand for Home Security in 2021

Indeed! This trends that started in 2020 due to the Pandemic will continue far into 2021. As people spend more time at home, they want to improve their home. Increased demand for home security systems will continue far into 2021. Combine this with the increased home sales as people move out of cities to new places due to the ability to work remote and you have a ‘perfect storm’ and more people looking to connect with a local home security company!

2. Increased Demand for Home Smarthome Technology

As we all continue to spend more time at home, we want smarthome technology! Why not, right? What does this mean? Automation for daily tasks, mostly.

Connecting things like your thermostat, lights, security system, security cameras, shades and audio system so that you can automate through programming, as well as use voice commands to complete tasks. Amazing and smart!

3. Demand  for Simplicity and Integration of Smarthome Devices

While the demand for smarthome technology has increased, so has the demand for simpler ways to use and integrate these systems. As children, teenagers as well as elderly relatives are home alone more, the need to keep things simple is evident. Brands are looking to simplify technology with the end user in mind.

It has to be simple and easy to use. User-friendly apps, easy-to-read screens and technology integration for technologically challenged seniors are all ways brands are leaning into this trend.

4. Increased Demand for Health-Related Features To Combat Germs Spread

Last but not least, we continue to see an increased demand for health-related features in our home and home security systems, as well as commercial security systems. We’ve seen the need for increased voice-command features so we can be hands-free and germ-free and temperature screening solutions for businesses. As parents continue to work from home and children continue to learn at home, this demand shall continue to increase and evolve.

2021 Home Security Trends

While this is not a complete list, we are confident that these trends are on-point. Most likely we will see an increased demand in home security systems as more people are relocating. The Myrtle Beach and South Carolina Real Estate market has exploded. So many people who used to be geographically bound due to jobs, are now free to live wherever they wish. Many are choosing the Grand Strand for their new home.

We welcome you and your family!
