The Ultimate Pandemic Home Defense Guide
This global pandemic has created new threats for the world. It’s no longer just about the virus. Criminal activity has gone through a fundamental change and so we need to adapt and prepare how we defend and protect ourselves and the ones we love. Now we aren’t trying to scare you but lets look at some facts:
Whether you agree with the threat of the virus or not; the global response is going to get much worse before it gets better, second waves have already begun,
New lockdowns around the world would mean more closed businesses, more unemployment,
Riots and protests have already begun around the world
People got violent over toilet paper, what will happen if people can’t get food?
Burglars are now using face masks to walk around freely and break into homes without fear: Take a look at the video below of thieves breaking into a home in Illinois:
Chicago has seen a 43% increase in killings as violence surge [source]. As people get more desperate, this is a natural reaction. People will turn to crime when they can’t feed their families. But people also turn to crime because right now is the prefect opportunity.
So we’ve written this article to help you protect yourself, your family and your home. We hope that you have to never use any of this stuff but better have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.
Lastly, people ARE buying out defence equipment; take a look at this video:
This was months ago. You can imagine how most things are going to be out of stock by now so you should hurry and get what you can whilst you can. Here’s what you need; we've broken it down into sections and linked to Amazon where we can to save you some time:
Home Camera System
Not wifi enabled, something offline entirely. Not just because wifi enabled cameras can be hacked into, as has already been done thousands of times - but because wifi enabled cameras sometimes REQUIRE a stable internet connection to work. Usually, someone breaking into a home have the foresight to cut phone lines - not to stop you from calling police, but because they know wifi dependent security cameras switch off. Be smart - get an offline camera system OR be safe and smart and get both!
