Learn Why You Can Trust DMC Systems for All Your Security Needs
According to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD), the Las Vegas, NV, metro area experienced 1,980 burglaries in 2023 as of March 24. This amounts to over 600 each month in the metro area alone. Of course, as with all cities, there are certain areas with much higher crime rates and other areas where we feel relatively safe.
No matter your neighborhood, it’s important to take precautions, ensuring the greatest protection for your home and family. Some tips from the metro police include keeping doors and windows locked, breaking larger boxes down into smaller ones before discarding them, not leaving garage door openers in cars parked in driveways, making it look like someone is home, and investing in home alarm systems.

Let’s explore what to look for in a home alarm system and how to make your home look occupied when you’re away.
The Features of Today’s Home Alarm Systems
Homes without a security system are at least three times more likely to be burglarized. For this reason, it’s important to ensure security cameras are visible. When integrated with motion sensors, window and door contacts, and glass break detectors, you can feel confident that you’ll be notified if someone attempts to break in. Should a breach occur, an alarm and flashing red lights often scare the intruder away.
When motion is detected, your camera zooms in and sends you an alert via your smartphone. These cameras are smart and can tell the difference between animals and people and even family members and strangers. You can view your live video feed remotely to determine if a call to the local police is warranted.
Making Your Home Look Occupied
Making it look like someone is home is one of the most important steps to reduce threats. Opportunistic burglars look for signs of a vacant house, including built-up mail, trash or recycling on the curb, and lights that stay the same for days at the time.
Smart technology offers an advanced approach. We’ll program an ‘Away’ button that activates your lighting to turn on and off randomly and your motorized shades to raise and lower. Anyone considering targeting your home will think twice, believing someone is there.
