Without the protection of a home security system you expose your family to physical violence. An 86 year old man named Gerald and his wife Karen were attacked in their home by a 19 year old man. A neighbor saw the man snooping around the neighborhood for an hour before he attacked Gerald and Karen. He struck them both with a hammer and a carpenter square. Thankfully Gerald and Karen were saved by a call to the police that went unnoticed by the young man. A home security system could have prevented the young man from targeting Gerald and Karen in the first place.
