Keeping Your Home & Pets Safe!

I have way more experience than I'd like to when it comes to home security issues, since one of my apartments near Orlando was broken into twice within 4 months! I definitely learned my lesson about "saving money" by getting a cheap apartment in a not great neighborhood, but those experiences have also caused me to look in to getting some kind of security system when I move back to Orlando. (Can you believe our crime rate is like the 4th highest in the US? It's crazy!)

I knew something was wrong when I came home from work one night and my cats met me at the door totally freaking out. They're always happy to see me, but I could tell that something had really shaken them up. I glanced across the living room and saw that my laptop was (once again!) not where I left it on the sofa. I ran into the bedroom to make sure I hadn't left it there, and that's when I saw the broken glass from the window all over my bed.

Other than my computer, which thieves seem to be huge fans of (I had a laptop stolen BOTH times!), I don't have that many possessions that are theft-worthy. But seeing how freaked out my cats were really got to me. I can't imagine what I'd do if something happened to one of them when someone broke in!

You guys have probably noticed that I only do sponsored posts when I feel like the topic is something I can really relate to, so my experiences are why I chose to check out LifeShield Security's Pet-Friendly Home Security. They have some really impressive options on their security systems that are perfect for pet owners!  Here are a few I thought were especially neat:

*Being able to get a message if your heat/air conditioner stops working while you're away and the house becomes an unsafe temperature for your pet.

*Ability to give your pet sitter their own code so you can know for sure how often/what time they're showing up!

*You can log onto their LifeView video monitoring system from your smart phone for live feed of what your pets are up to while you're gone. This would be amazing if you have a sick pet that you're worried about leaving while you're at work!

*If you move, you can take the system with you to your new place!

This is totally something I'm going to consider when I move back to Florida!

Those are great benefits but what about a more secure lock too? ...and don't live in a bottom floor apartment...and find someway to hide or make it more difficult for someone to take your computer...sorry, not preaching but feel sooo bad for you. I am angry for you!!
