So, what can be done to mitigate feelings of anxiety after being a victim of a burglary or attempted burglary? There are some solutions that are purely common sense. The first is to just talk about how you are feeling. Trusted friends or family members can help in this regard, as can mental health professionals. Even reaching out on various Internet sites where victims of crime congregate can be helpful.
Technology has evolved making a home automation system more accessible. These systems can control many things in the home or just a few elements. Some examples are the internal and external lights, Home Security tool, window blinds, thermostats, entertainment systems and appliances.
Implement the force field. As far as literally getting under a burglar’s skin, the force field device is about as far as you can legally go in a home security system. Utilizing the same techniques in practice in the spy industry, the device sends out waves which cause confusion and a feeling of nausea in someone approaching your home. While it will not affect every person in the same way, it is certain to cause a feeling of distress – quite opposite from the boldness necessary to break into a home.
You may think that setting up such a system will cost you money but if you seat down to calculate what you stand to lose in case of a break-in, you will see it is totally worth it. Besides, you can get a great deal with a good security company.
Lasers provide an extra layer of security because even if a burglar is able to get through your first defenses, he is going to have to be a magician to get past your laser maze.
People who have their homes broken into often report intense feelings of anguish. If our home is where we can truly be ourselves, and this privacy has been violated, what does this mean? Does this mean that there is really nowhere in the world that is safe for us? Can we ever really feel safe in our own homes again? Is there not even one little corner of the world that we can make our own? And could a break-in happen again? These and other similar feelings are common among people who have been the victims of burglaries.
For this strategy to deter a thief, however, the thief has to know it is there. This is why it is really very important that homeowners put up the security company stickers and signs around the exterior of the home. Consider a home with this paraphernalia and one without it. If you were a thief, which one would you go after? Burglars usually aren’t the sharpest tool in the tool box, but even they will go for the home with no indication of security systems.
