Motorized blinds can help deter burglars

About every 13 seconds, a home intrusion is commited. Each year 2 million home burglaries are reported in the United States.1 Unfortunately, home burglary is something everyone has or will need to think about whether if they rent or own their home.

To safeguard your home there are many things you can do from purchasing a security system to enlisting the help of a dog. Some individuals take comfort in being cautious, never leaving certain things lying around their yard in plain sight or broadcasting that they’ve bought something new like a 70-inch television or surround sound system. I’ve even heard of individuals that don’t post on social media when they are on vacation, if you are lounging on a beach in Hawaii then you are definitely not at home...

Another idea that may help you deter a home burglary is to make it seem like someone is always home. One way of achieving this effect is to use motorized blinds. Motorized blinds can be set to a timer so that your blinds open and close automatically at your preferred time of day. Make burglaries second guess entering your home with motorized blinds set to give the impression that the normal daily routine is in progress even when you are away from your home.
