You buy a home security system to defend against thieves trying to break into your house. However, there are more threats around than just masked thieves outside your home.

Outbuildings and vehicles that are parked long-term can be just as much of a draw to thieves as your main house. Does your security system cover those? Probably not.

Even worse, in 30% of identity theft cases, the culprit is likely to be a family member or relative. You also have an 18% chance it's a friend, neighbor or someone else with access to your house. Is your security system protecting against that?

Even if your identity isn't the target, a snooping party guest, curious child or grandchild or even someone working in your home, like a contractor, can get into places they shouldn't. And you'll never know until it's too late.

Fortunately, the security system that's protecting your home's exterior can protect important things on the inside as well. It just takes a little creative thinking.
