When I think about what makes security important to me, really it’s all about comfort. I have two kids, our family travels a lot; I need to make sure everyone is safe and okay. Some might think I’m a bit security-obsessed! What can I say? I’m a mom!
As my kids have gotten older we now can leave them home alone for a little while, which I wouldn’t feel comfortable doing without the extra layer of security. We need that protection, both for them and for us. It makes them feel safer to know we’re watching over them, and it makes us feel better too. No, I don’t think the house is going to burn down. But things happen sometimes, that’s life. So when something happens, I need to be ready. 15, 30, 60 seconds? That can make a big difference. If my kids were to call and say there was a problem, I would already know what it was. If they set off the alarm, Mike and I know if it is an emergency or an accident, rather than having to backtrack first.
Security just helps me take better care of my family. That’s what it’s all about.
