Social Media and Home Security
Social media can put you at risk of becoming a victim of burglary if you aren’t careful about what you’re sharing online. That is why we want to share this valuable information about social media safety with you.
Many of us remember our parents’ warning growing up: “Don’t put a note on the front door to tell me where you went. That’s like advertising to the neighborhood that no one’s home.” With social media, you’re putting a “note on the door” that everyone in your network can see; if your page isn’t secure, you’re putting it out there for anyone to see.
The Risk of Using Social Media
Some people make the mistake of providing even more information: dates, times, and names of the neighbors feeding the pets (in the form of tagging them in an online thank you note or some other communication). It's hard to believe for those who know better, but some people will post everything short of their residential security systems codes on social media. All of that information can help a burglar decide the best date and time to break into your house, and you may never be the wiser until you hear from your alarm company that a break-in attempt occurred.

Residential Security Systems and Permits
One news item out of one Southern California city sheds light on the importance of securing and maintaining all alarm permits required by your municipality. In this case, a business owner was told by police that officers did not respond to his alarm signal as his business was being burglarized for one simple reason: he had failed to renew his annual alarm permits with the city.
News reports cite the “no permit, no response” policy that the city enforces for residential security systems, enacted in November 2003. If alarm owners fail to pay the annual permit fee, they will receive no response from law enforcement for a triggered alarm. In a situation where the building is occupied, this could be pretty dangerous—even tragic.
