Seniors are easier targets for burglars since they tend to live alone and aren’t as physically equipped for self defense. Thankfully, there are some good discounts that we found from major home security companies that could make it much safer for senior homeowners.
This is great news for homeowners who have been waiting to upgrade their home security without breaking the bank.

This program was introduced on the heels of a new census report that shows home invasion has doubled1 in the US in the past 5 years, but home invasion among seniors 55 and up has more than tripled.1 Authorities suggest this is largely due to the stereotype that older folks have more money, and don’t have great home security systems.
“About 60% of the burglars indicated that the presence of an alarm would cause them to seek an alternative target altogether,” says a study by UNC Charlotte Department of Criminal Justice.2 Seniors should take advantage of this program so that they do not have to worry about feeling safe in their homes.
One of the first residents to take advantage of the $850+ off home security program is Wendy Haughlan. When we called her for a quote this is what she had to say:
“I heard a loud noise at the back of my house. Glass was shattering from the sliding door on the patio. (The security company) called me right away and I told them to send help because someone was in my house. It is reassuring to know that (my security company) and the police officers were there.“
“Within minutes, every carbon monoxide detector on every floor of the house was going off and my security company called me immediately. Thank goodness my security company called me after three of my alarms kept warning me to evacuate and insisted that I do so.“
If you’re over 55, you need to protect yourself. Have you ever seen the same car drive by multiple times that doesn’t live in the neighborhood? It’s could be a burglar doing his research on which houses in your neighborhood have alarms and which ones don’t. He’ll target the ones that don’t.
The best way to prevent a home invasion is to have a robust home security system. Since you cannot count on law enforcement, I think it’s about time you take advantage of FREE* security equipment, especially for seniors. It would certainly make my law enforcement’s jobs easier.
