Why pets are not the answer to keeping your property safe.

Are you part of the 44% of households in the US who have at least one dog? Do you think that your dog is better than a security system?

In this article, we will outline a few key reasons why a smart security system is superior to our pets when it comes to protection.

While we all love and cherish our furry friends, it's important to tell the difference between a dog and a guard dog. It's common for dogs, big and small, to bark when they hear a noise or if someone's at the door, but that's often where the protection ends. The majority of dogs react the same way to visitors, whether or not you are home. Friendly pups will approach you with tails wagging, hoping for a pat on the head, while the more unfriendly dogs will grunt, possibly bark, and then walk away.

Nowadays though, a large percentage of us have dogs because they're great company, fun for cuddles and for overall enjoyment. But some people also want their pet to double as their alarm systems. Despite the fact that dogs can serve as deterrents and alert us about certain things, there is a 100% reliability of a professional security system such as SECURAM Smart, which limit the risk that people take when they rely on their dogs.

Man's best friend, if housebroken correctly won't do their business inside, but outside. Walk with their owners without pulling on the leash and behave around other dogs - these are the basic attributes of a housebroken dog.

Now if you have a protection dog, these dogs have spent hours being trained. It is important to note that these dogs will not attack unless their owners have instructed them to do so or are under attack. Furthermore, these loyal dogs will stop attacking on command. While these dogs have received the highest levels of training, it’s a highly spoken about subject if they should be around kids even with their high level of training. Even more so, you should be aware of the fact that even when properly trained, some of the best attack breeds may be banned in some areas or require surveillance cameras for insurance purposes since they have harmed people without provocation in the past.

The advantages of security systems over dogs.

It's pretty likely that your dog spends more time snoozing than playing; most dogs sleep between 12 and 14 hours a day. But when your dog is napping upstairs or even if they're a deep sleeper, who's watching the house?

Its high-tech devices provide you with the protection you need, whether you are at home or away. It is SECURAM's commitment to provide you with the highest level of protection.

Back to our furry friends, when it comes to cuddles, companionship, and unconditional love, nothing compares to a dog. But when it comes to keeping your home and family safe, it's best to put your trust in the hands of experts.

After understanding the differences between a family pet, a guard dog, an attack dog, and an integrated security system, we hope you realize how beneficial one can be.
