As residents of Toronto and the surrounding area most of us have become so used to the hustle and bustle of this great city that we really don’t pay much attention to the noise around us. Becoming complacent about this in some cases could really breech our personal protection.
We all tend to like to mind our own business and not get involved with others. It is not uncommon if we happening to be working outdoors on our home property and we hear glass breaking perhaps at a home nearby, and we basically just ignore it. After all, accidents happen all the time around the home, and most likely someone just broke a flower pot or something. Then again, it could be a thief breaking into your neighbor’s home.
We sometimes tend to ignore strange sounds even when it comes to our own property. We may have gone to bed for the night, and suddenly hear a knock or bump downstairs. It is not unusual to just pass this off to the wind. Or maybe our family pet seems to be a bit edgy and is doing a bit of barking or growling. We just assume that he has picked up the scent of a small animal outside.
In the majority of cases our assumptions in the above noted cases is correct, but there are times they are not. These could be related to a potential thief trying to gain access to your own. Naturally if you have a security system in place you will be alerted to this, but otherwise you only have your senses to rely on. Ironically many of us rely on our canine friends as a form of protection, but when they try to do their job we tend to tell them to be quiet.
Of course you have made sure that you have good locks on your doors and windows, and hopefully you have some good outdoor lighting. These are the first line deterrents to break ins. Remaining diligent however, should be part of your security measures.
You will find that we have offered lots of additional security tips and information and no matter how secure you feel you may find some additional information within these that could help to increase your level of security at very little cost.
