Security comes in many forms;physical and/or emotional personal security, security of family and friends and security of our possessions. Why is security so important to us? Psychologist Abraham Maslow’sfamous Hierarchy of Needs tells us that safety and security areabsolutebasic human needs, with only psychological survival necessitieslike breathing, food, water, and sleep being considered as more important.
Safety is what we feel when we believe we will not be harmed and we feel securewhen we experience little or no fearor anxiety.
Our family, friends and possessions are most precious to us and all reside in our homes, so it is no wonder we look so seriously at home security measures, especially on the Gold Coast, to satisfy our necessity forsafety and security. Typical traditional home security has always been key locks on our doors, windows, gates, sheds, filing cabinets and certain rooms in the house. Then we added security screens, and often a vicious dog.Sounds a bit like our prison rather than our palace, doesn’t it?
