Firearm Safety Group, Inc. conducts Home Security Assessments at residential properties, including private apartments, condominiums, single family homes, and residential estates. It has been said that if a person really wants to enter your home, nothing can stop them. However, most criminals are lazy; they seek areas of weakness and vulnerability that provide them with an easy target. Home burglaries are generally "crimes of opportunity" where thieves can break into your home without attracting attention. When your home is secure, most burglars will seek easier targets…those who have not taken the time to prepare their homes. Home Security Assessments provide a complete review of all aspects of physical security at the home. The typical Home Security Assessment includes: • Interviews with home occupants to gain an understanding of security concerns, past security problems, and daily activities at the home. • Review of family safety, security and evacuation plans. • Survey of exterior perimeter of site and home, including examination of site boundaries, perimeter fencing, landscaping, security lighting, and signage. • Survey of interior of home, including living areas, sleeping areas, and storage areas. • Review of physical security devices, personal protection device placement, doors, windows, safes, and lock hardware. • Examination of the ten common security vulnerabilities that make your home vulnerable to an attack by an intruder. • Review of safe rooms, systems, and personal protection devices used to protect against home invasions. • Review of security systems, including intrusion alarm systems, panic alarm systems, video surveillance systems, and security intercom systems. • Identification of likely security risks and potential threats. • Personal protection device placement and suggestions including firearm, pepper spray, or any other protection device. • Review of history of losses and security incidents. • Preparation of Home Security Assessment Report. • Provide a real life scenario for homeowners view and evaluation The Home Security Assessment Report provides an objective evaluation of your existing security measures, identifies areas of security weakness, and provides a list of specific recommendations for security improvements at your home.
