Professional Security Systems at Home in Staten Island

Home security doesn’t have to be do-it-yourself security. As we wind down from the pandemic journey, many of us are busier than ever and looking for ways to affordably get the professional services we need. That’s what we offer here at APB Security, with professional security systems for your Staten Island home. Here’s what it can mean for your family. 

Are Porch Pirates Real?

Unfortunately, they are. In 2021, more than 210 million packages were stolen off the front porches of homes across the U.S. — and roughly 35 million Americans say they’ve fallen victim to package theft at some point. From essential staples and supplies, to valuable electronics and collectibles, to designer clothing and accessories, porch pirates will take whatever they can get their hands on. Typically, they have no idea what they’re stealing until after the getaway. In total, the estimated annual losses from porch theft are $5.4 billion. 

Protecting Your Family from Toxic Fumes

At least two major gas leaks in Staten Island have been reported on over the past year. If a gas main becomes damaged, an entire neighborhood could be at risk. Here is information on protecting your family from illness or death from the toxic fumes of a gas leak, or the equally dangerous presence of carbon monoxide in the home. 

Protecting Your Home from Winter Weather

As winter progresses, many homeowners are focused on keeping the house warm and the utility bills low, without compromising on energy efficiency. At the same time, they’re also doing everything they can to keep the costly risks of winter weather at bay. Luckily, APB Security has smart home technology that can help with all of it. Here are the winter weather home hazards we can help you avoid. 

Protect COVID-19 Service Sites with Access Control

Due to the surge of more than 26,000 new COVID-19 cases in the last seven days, there are new testing sites set up throughout Staten Island; this is in addition to the many testing opportunities already available in our local NYC Health + Hospitals. As public demand for testing and vaccination continues to increase, we strongly suggest these services are performed at sites where electronic access control is installed. Here’s why. 

Holiday Home Burglary Prevention

There are two types of crimes that increase by 20% in the month of December, says the National Crime Victimization Survey. These two crimes are robbery and personal larceny, both of which involve property theft that can include home burglary.
