Home alarm systems have come a long way in the last few decades. Today, homes are being equipped with smart home features, a wide variety of high-tech sensors, HD video doorbells, and top-of-the-line home security cameras.
When it comes to living in the country, security and safety are two things that shouldn’t be overlooked or ignored. While crime remains much lower in rural areas compared to cities, being isolated, away from neighbors, and off the beaten path has its own risks.
Country living certainly has its perks. Wide open spaces, fresh country air, green fields, tall trees, and the sounds of quiet mixing with the noises of nature. There’s less congestion, less traffic, and country people actually get to know their neighbors (though it helps that we have fewer names to remember).
Summer has finally come to a close, but there's still a lot to look forward to this year! The leaves are changing, Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and before you know it, we'll be in the midst of the holidays, snow, and another winter.

Summer is on the horizon Lynchburg. Tis the season that door knockers arrive to sell all sorts of goods. Less scrupulous security alarm companies deploy teams with high-pressure sales tactics to your door, even if you already have an alarm system. They may deceive homeowners saying your current security company is out of business or demonstrate new technology and imply that your current company cannot offer it.
If your business takes physical goods to market, the process of delivering those goods to their final destination can have a massive impact on a company’s overall performance. Likewise, being ahead of the learning curve in adapting to the latest supply chain technological solutions can give companies a competitive advantage over their competition.
If you ship or store products, those items are vulnerable to theft. According to the FBI, $30 billion worth of cargo is stolen in the U.S. every single year. Theft can occur at any point in the supply chain: site of production, during shipping, in a storage warehouse, or at port.
