Seeing that this summer is liable to be the summer of 2020 on steroids, there’s no time like the present to prep for what seems to be in the very near future. I recently discovered a company called TheHomeSecuritySuperstore.com. I’d never heard about them before, but they have some great products that would be a boon to the prepper concerned with updating their layers of home security (yes, you do need layers).
“Protestors” are now showing up at events with long guns and body armor, there is a large amount of training in trauma care, marksmanship, and the like taking place amongst collectivists (Forward Observer has detailed this a lot of late.), and they’ve repeatedly stated they’re taking their violence to rural areas.
You need to ensure that your family is as safe as possible.
Here’s what I recommend that Home Security Superstore keeps in stock…
Think about this…
- You’re working in your basement.
- It is 3 AM and you are sleeping.
- You’re in the back of your house.
In any of these situations, you’re away from a view of your driveway. Should somebody drive up towards your house, you’d have absolutely no idea. But, if you have a driveway alarm (and Dakota Alert makes the best that I know of, by the way), then that would give you very valuable information and time.
Even if we say that it only takes the car 60 seconds to get from your driveway to a point where the occupants can begin to unload, you will be much better prepared for whatever happens next than if you got caught with your pants down.
And if you have a really long driveway, you’ll have even more time. This is a winning piece of gear.
I think there are a number of reasons that these rock. For starters, depending on how big your house is and how heavy of a sleeper you are, you may never hear a window being broken. You’ve a much better chance of hearing what’s happening if there’s an ear-piercing shriek going off.
The second reason I like these is that it scares the bad guy into thinking that the cops are on their way even if they’re not. Bad guys like easy targets. A home with a perceived automatic security system isn’t an easy target.
Lastly, these alert your neighbors that something is going on at your house as well. While they may not hear the sound of a breaking window (or perhaps, just shrug it off as my neighbors did), a never-ending alarm is eventually going to annoy somebody into action.
What I like about The Home Security Superstore’s version of these is that they’re not the cheap garbage you’re bound to find on Amazon. These are the real deal.
(One of the benefits of The Home Security Superstore is that it helps you to avoid giving money to elites. For more information on how to starve the beast, check out our free QUICKSTART Guide.)
If you’re always keeping your doors and windows locked, technically, you should never need one of these. There are some older homes out there, though, that don’t have locks on the windows or where the doors are left unlocked throughout the course of the day for convenience’s sake.
If this sounds like you, these can be a very handy item to have. That way, you don’t end up with the modern-day rendition of, “Ma’am, we traced the call to your basement.”
I particularly like this for apartment dwellers. This will provide a greater level of security to the door, making it harder for anybody to kick the door open. Should somebody even try, an alarm will go off as well.
Though I’ve seen a lot of door bars out there, I’ve never seen one with an alarm before. This is why I like browsing new marketplaces. There’s cool stuff out there that you’ll discover in the process. The Home Security Superstore is one of those places you may want to do the same.
Baddies like operating under cover of darkness because it results in less chance of their being seen. If you have a storage shed out back, a lonely garage, or a back door that rarely is visited and doesn’t get a lot of light, a motion-activated light will make sure that nobody’s going to be breaking into your property under the veil of night.
Here’s the formula for crime:
The cost of crime + the chance of being caught = the probability of the crime occurring.
Bad guys already know the cost of arson, breaking and entering, theft, and the like. If the bad guys come to your property, it’s not the cost of crime they worry about – it’s the chance of being caught. Once you start to increase the chance that they’ll be caught, you start to cause serious doubts in the bad guy’s mind.
While I definitely think you should have the cameras to back up this sign (don’t try that reverse psychology nonsense here), just letting people know that they’re being watched is going to be a big advantage in your favor.
Forget winter. Summer is coming.
I think that right now, food is the most important prep that you should be focusing on, but I also think that the world is rapidly growing more chaotic and violent.

All of the above are very easy patches to your current home security plan that you could add with a minimal investment. It doesn’t do you much good to lay up all that emergency food if you can’t secure it.
