I’m not a policeman or a detective and I do not have any interest in becoming one. But yet my door security system put me in a situation one day where I had to play that role.

This incident happened on an autumn afternoon two years ago. I still remember it all just like it was yesterday. I had just come back home from working overseas and I was still feeling really sleepy from the jet lag.

I had just gone upstairs to lie on the bed after dropping my luggage when suddenly my door security system went off. Within seconds my mobile phone also began to ring. I was so startled that I almost did not realize what had happened.

Someone had kicked in my front door and triggered the door security system. The call I received was from the security company to ask me if I was OK and if they should call the police.

I frantically replied to the caller affirmatively and I just looked at the thief from the top of the stairs unsure of what I should do next. This was unbelievable. The thief apparently was so startled by the door security system alarm as well that in his haste to leave the scene before the police arrived he tripped and fell over a flower pot I had sitting next to the door and broke his ankle.

While he was lying on the floor screaming in agony, I quickly jumped on top of him and I started hitting, swinging and yelling at this piece of crap. How dare he break into my home and invade my space. What if my wife or kids were at home? I was more than angry, I was breathing fire at this point.

By the time the police showed up I had tied up the thief and was standing guard over him. I could only be thankful for the fact that the thief had to suffer that unfortunate accident along with my good sense to install a door security system which is something that I had done just months earlier.

The point of my story is that you never know when bad things may happen. As a result, I returned to the website where I located the door security system company and purchased all of their additional emergency services as an extra precaution. There was no way I was taking any more chances with my home.

I’m really glad that I purchased this alarm service from this site and as an extra bonus point now I also have an exciting story with a happy ending to tell!
