Guru reminds you to be as careful after Christmas with securing your home and business as you are during the build up to the big holiday. We have all heard stories of how burglars target homes with gifts to steal and we know to be on the lookout for them. Guru wants you to remember NOT to put the boxes for all that great stuff you got for Christmas out on the curb for the bulk pick-up. When you do you advertise your new flat screen tv., the laptop your bought for your kid, your new tool set….anything and everything that someone driving by can see you must have in your house right now, brand new and probably not even set up yet! If you don’t have a security system to protect your new stuff you are asking for trouble! Break up the boxes and put them in the blue bin…or something. Better yet, buy a good quality alarm system from us and protect everything and everyone in your home. You will never regret you did. Guru
Guru is happy to announce that protecting your home or business is more affordable than ever. Color touchscreens, wireless monitoring, remote access to your alarm system…..all are available for pricing that is less expensive than going to a restaurant for a good meal. All alarm companies now, not just door to door sales companies from the mainland, are offering small systems that can be upgraded to larger system, for a low, low cost going in. And the best news yet is that you can buy your system from an established local company with a contractor’s license and all the necessary insurance requirements to protect you. Expect to pay a monthly cost of $45-$55 however, and expect to sign a long term contract commitment to that monthly. Guru says never to forget that nothing is free…it does have to be paid for but we can make it easy for you…Call us today for a free estimate for a state of the art alarm system that will protect your home and that you can most likely afford today! Guru
Guru went to the FBI stats for 2010 and was shocked, I say shocked, to find out that in 2010 Hawaii had more burglaries than California! Yes, it’s true…maybe not in total number of burglaries but per 100,000 people…we had 636 burglaries per 100,000 people and California, with 36 MILLION more people than we have, had 614 incidents per 100,000. How about that! I hate to say it, but we have some baaaaaad people here and unless you have an alarm system you will most likely be hit….who knows when, sooner or later…it hurts. Call for an appt. for a free estimate NOW. Don’t wait until you are one of the 2012 stats in the FBI website. Guru
Guru was invited to the Olomana Community Association meeting last night to discuss the large rash of burglaries the Windward side is having. September alone reported 35 burglaries in District 4. This is terrible. Enchanted Lakes alone accounted for 11, followed by Maunawili & Olomana for 6, Lanikai & Beach Park 4, Coconut Grove 4, Aikahi 7 and the Business District 3. What a disgrace of Aloha spirit. The police dept. was there to speak and it is obvious they are doing all they can and probably prevented many more burglaries with their alertness and presence. But, as you can see, it is simply not enough. Be on the lookout. Everyone is in danger of being broken in to. Dogs can be bribed. Louver windows are open invitations. Wake up and have an alarm system installed before you lose the things you enjoy and cherish. Systems are as low as $850. Be smart. Guru
It is always fun to throw and Christmas party. That said, a Christmas party most likely will bring strangers into your house as well as friends and family. Caterers, delivery persons, bartenders and even friends of friends will be able to scope out your home if they are up to no good. Good friends of mine recently gave a birthday party big bash only to be burglarized a day later. Suspicious? I think so. The only way you can truly protect your home from burglars is a first class alarm system. Call us…talk to guru. Guru
I worry when someone wants to install bars on their windows instead of an alarm system. I worry because not only can they be removed given enough time and concentration from a burglar, but if there is a fire you are really, really risking dying of smoke inhalation because the fire department can’t get in. Smoke inhalation is the killer in a fire. You go unconscious much too fast to get out of the house and if there are bars on the windows the fire department can’t get in. Also the cost of bars is, in most cases, higher than a good burglar/fire alarm system. Go figure! Guru

I LOVE new technology. Guru
I was at a sales call yesterday in Manoa. The neighbors down the street had a truck pull up to their house last week and clean it out. This is common these days and there are ways for you and your neighbors to prevent this. Go to your neighbors and agree that if one of you is moving or having a truck delivery you will let the other know. If they see a truck in your driveway and haven’t been notified that you were expecting it, they have your permission to call you to verify it is legitimate. Just this little action can save the heart break of coming home to find your house empty and all your beloved valuables gone forever. Even better, call us and have a first class burglar alarm system installed in your home on Oahu. Guru
1. Of course I look familar. I was here last week doing a service for you in your home or delivering something. And, while I was in the house I might carefully unlock a window.
2. I’ll knock first to see if there is anyone home. I’ll be looking for someone who doesn’t live there if you answer. I am very polite. I’ll try all the doors to see if you left one unlocked before I try a window. It is so much easier to get in that way. Lots of people work on Oahu and are gone during the day so I have a lot of potential targets.
3. I try to never look like a thief. I dress nicely and am very pleasant if anyone talks to me. You will describe me as “such a nice boy or girl”.
4. You can count on me to pretty much trash the house because I just know you have valuables hidden somewhere. It doesn’t matter if you or your house looks like you have money. You will have something I want.
5. Your dog will make some noise but will shut up when I give him a bag of treats and then will think I am the greatest. We’ll be friends the next time I come around.
6. Sometimes I like to make an entry at a very unexpected place, maybe the second story just to show you how smart I am and how you can’t keep me out.
7. Sometimes I work with several guys, one at one end of the street and on at the other so if the police show up or you pull in your driveway they can call me on my cell phone and I will get out fast.
8. I do this pretty much every day. I like to think of it as “my job” and I have the whole of Honolulu and Oahu to work on. I figure you will just buy new things for yourself.
9. I don’t like burglar alarm systems. When the siren goes off I pretty much expect the police to be coming so I have to get out of the neighborhood as fast as I can which is humbug for me.
10. I particularly like to work my own neighborhood. I can watch to see exactly when you leave your house. You only have to be gone a few minutes for me to get in and get out.
11. These days I also look for anything I can sell to identity theft fences. They pay a lot for a birth certificate, social security card or just the social security number and, of course, if I find a credit card I will use it until you cancel it. That’s why I go through your file cabinet. I will take everything and sift through it later to see if I can find something useful to identity thieves.
Well, now you know me. Even I think that if you are smart you will get a burglar alarm system as fast as you can. Otherwise you can plan to “entertain” me as your guest as soon as I get around to you.
Check out www.ilind.net. Ian’s April 8 post takes the door to door salesmen to task. Ian investigated these guys last year and found out a lot of very bad information on how they operate. He is a retired investigative reporter and knows his stuff. It takes a lot of effort to thwart burglars and other lawless people out there. Ian has given us a lot of support in going after these guys. The April 8 post is still up on his blog. Check it out. Guru
