Your home is your most personal place. It’s where you sleep, where you store your valuable possessions, and where you do a lot of your favorite activities. Most importantly, your home is where you spend most of your time with your family and friends.

Unfortunately, that means your home is also your most vulnerable place. Although you may have solid walls and a lock on your doors, your home isn’t always where your family is safest.

Think about it—all of us probably know someone who has been a victim of a home invasion. In the United States, a home is burglarized every 13 seconds.

That totals over 2.5 million break-ins a year. That’s over 2.5 million times a year that Americans face trauma, possible theft, or even possible violence.

What are we doing wrong? 

The best predictor of a break-in is whether or not the home has a home security system. Homes without a security system are 300% more likely to be burglarized. Majority of burglars won’t attempt a break-in if they see a home security system installed.

Although these statistics seem to make sense, only 17% of homes in the United States have a security system. A staggering majority of homeowners are leaving themselves and their families at a much higher risk for a home break-in, and the disastrous consequences that come along with it.

What can we do to change? 

Why would we continue to put the people and things that mean the most to us in a position where they are three times more susceptible to a break-in and possible theft or violence? There’s no doubt that you love your family and want what’s best for them, so that’s not the challenge.

What is it then?

There’s no doubt that we’re a society centered around technology. We rely on our smart devices to communicate without saying a word, to give us driving directions, and to shop for us with a push of a button. It seems like every aspect of our lives has been drastically changed by technology in the past few decades.

Except for home security, which has stayed stagnant for a while. Many people rely on old fashioned lock and key security measures in their homes. If they do have an alarm system, it’s manually controlled through a keypad in the home.

Perhaps if home security could evolve to fit the way we live the rest of our lives, more people could better protect their families.

Well, it has. Viv saw this challenge as an opportunity to bring to its customers HomeSecure, a modern home security system that utilizes the latest technology to keep your family safe.
