Learn About DIY Home Security Homes are a safe haven and comfortable retreat for individuals and families. Home invasions can compromise that feeling of safety and security, making people feel uncomfortable and unsafe in their own homes. Although the FBI Uniform Crime Reporting Statistics indicate property crime rates have seen a significant decline in the last few years, there are still roughly 2.5 million burglaries a year, 66 percent of which involve home break-ins. Break-ins are 6 percent more likely to occur between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m., when people are out at work or running errands than at other times of day. Homes without a security system are 300 percent more likely to be burglarized, according to the National Council for Home Safety and Security. Installing a security system may be the goal of homeowners looking to protect themselves and their belongings. Thanks to availability of new, user-friendly products, do-it-yourselfers can, in many instances, install their own home security systems. Safety.com says smart home integration, mobile apps and wireless connectivity are hallmarks of modern DIY home security systems. Many have the same components as traditional home security systems, but do not require professional installation or monitoring, even though such options are available. When shopping for home security systems, people can look for the following features to compare offerings. • Sensors: Sensors will detect motion and activity in the house. Sensors also may be attached to doors and windows to determine if either are open. Some systems are designed to send alerts to a phone when triggered. • Cameras: Working in conjunction with sensors, cameras can provide an eye on activity in and outside of a home, adding another layer of protection. • Smart features: With smart home connectivity, security systems can be engaged and turned off from remote locations. Many DIY versions of home security systems work wirelessly and can be set up in a relatively short period of time. While wired systems use existing electric and telephone lines to connect security components, wireless systems connect components to a main panel Kopetsky’s Ace Hardware history started in Downtown Yankton in 1975 when Leo Kopetsky purchased a 3,500 sq. foot “Coast to Coast” hardware store. Downtown saw two store moves, one affiliation change (to Ace Hardware) and the development and growth of Ace Bike & Fitness. A lot of merchandise was packed in that “cozy” space so in 2006 the decision was made to expand in a new and larger operation on N. Broadway in Yankton. In Spring of 2016 the Kopetsky family opened a second store in Orange City, IA. The Orange City location features many of the same services as our Yankton location as well as a full service bike shop featuring Trek and Electra Bicycles. 8 • TODAY’S HOME - Spring 2020 As your local Ace Hardware, our store is a member of the largest retailer-owned hardware cooperative in the industry. •Ace Rewards points equivalent to 2% of your purchase •We have all of the paints, sundries and accessories to do the job right at a reasonable price •5 Gallon buckets available Stop in at 2404 Broadway Avenue, Yankton and let us via radio frequency.
