Security Tips


3 Steps to Save Cash on Home Security

Safety is really a luxury that we have to pay for these days. Crime rates are always rising and these people are constantly searching for a way to break in to homes for simple money. So if we want assured safety it’s time we take it upon ourselves.
When we talk about property protection today, we talk about security alarms.

The old way of just locking doors and windows for safety doesn’t work every time today. Crooks will discover a way to get in and it’s up to us to make it very hard for them to do it.

As an introduction, the very best and most affordable device today is the camera. CCTV cameras are all over the place these days particularly in big cities. So why not get one yourself? They’re widely used, that reality alone proves its effectively.

Burglar alarms differ in style and function that’s why their costs also vary.

First to consider in opting for house security is to know just how much you need and your budget. Whether to have a typical security package or perhaps a home all locked down, it depends upon how much security you’ll need.

Right Here Are The Top 3 Tips On How You Can Save Money On Alarm Systems:

Citi Protection Security Tips

Try Do-it-yourself Security systems:

Installing devices like these can be intimidating but these devices these days are very user friendly.
Cameras and alarms are effortlessly installed by anybody if just given the time. If you are truly intimidated then you might want to go old school and plainly lock the doors whenever you are not around.
Getting a dog is another factor you are able to do on your own when it comes to protection. We all know that dogs are really fantastic when it comes to guarding territories so why not use them. Burglars constantly think twice when they see a dog around.

Citi Protection Security Tips

Don’t Entice Robbers:

This simply means not to put anything fancy and expensive-looking in the open. In the event you are living in a not so high-class location then try to blend in with your surroundings. Do not buy a large house and park you’re most expensive car in a spot where living conditions are poor more than likely you’ll be attracting robbers.

Hide anything that screams “very expensive”, hide or put away your cars, gadgets and any other belongings that is worth robbing. Keep them away from windows. Another tip would be to close your curtains at night.

Get Only The Gear That Your House Requires:

This is the part where we look at our spending budget and verify what we can buy with our cash. Your priority should be to get only the things that you will utilize daily. The main goal here is protecting your home whilst obtaining probably the most out of your budget.

As a tip, owning heavy duty locks and curtains can be adequate but if you want to go the extra mile without spending too much then getting CCTV cameras will be enough.

Trauma Counselling


Crime is a serious problem in South Africa, but it’s not unique to our country. All over the world there are events that cause significant trauma to people – be they natural or man-inflicted. At Citi Protection, we regularly encounter people and families that have experienced trauma and are on a delicate journey of recovery.

In our research we stumbled upon this encouraging and informative article by Michael Connor. We have included an excerpt below, but you can read the full article on Coping And Surviving Violent And Traumatic Events here.

"In one violent or traumatic moment the world can become unpredictable, dangerous and frightening. Injuries and accidents leave a traumatic impression on those injured and the people closest to them. Friends, loved ones and close relationships may be lost.

The aftermath of such events can be felt throughout an entire town and across the country. When tragedies are covered by the media, people everywhere can feel less safe. The impacts can be lasting and powerful for many who are involved.

Emergency services, health care professionals, volunteers, families and other caring individuals can be traumatized by simply caring and helping those who are most injured or traumatized. It is normal for children, and even adults, to be sad, fearful, moody, upset, or even afraid to be alone for months after a trauma. Entire families are affected. Accidents, violence and other tragic events can affect a person or a community's entire way of life.

People respond differently in, during and after a crisis or a dangerous situation. But everyone is changed in ways they may not yet realize. Some feel the brunt of the experience immediately. Others appear to be strong or even numb to their experience.

Helping everyone express their thoughts and feelings in a safe and open manner is one of the most positive things you can do. People who are friends or co-workers of those directly affected can be affected as well by what is known as secondary trauma.

It is important for people who are affected to share what they think and feel. A critical window of opportunity exists.

Debriefing and discussing the events within 72 hours of an incident can help insure that people recover and don't end up becoming permanent psychological casualties. Both children and adults need to be shown that their feelings are accepted and understood, and not just told that people understand.

Feelings should not be judged or punished, but it is important that children understand the impact of negative behaviour such as hurting others or neglecting responsibility."
