It may come as no surprise to hear that security systems and routines differ from home to home and person to person. But did you know that only 22% of couples split security duties?
While it’s always important to limit the people who know your home security routine, sharing the duties can actually maximize the security of the home if one of you happens to be away. When installing a security system, a great reason to find a trusted professional is to have them teach both members of the household how to operate the system effectively.
