With less than approximately 40 crimes per year, Overton scores an A- crime score, which is about as good as it gets for the majority of cities and towns in the East Texas area.
With that said, crime does still exist in the area, and it’s better to be safe than sorry when it comes to protecting yourself, your family, your home, and your assets. It’s a good idea to take some simple, yet effective, precautions to secure your home (and business or organization, if you run one). One of the most effective precautionary steps you can take is to install a reliable security system to guard your assets around the clock, which can help reduce the chances of becoming one of the ~30 victims of property crime in the area on any given year.
Overton Residential & Home Security System Options
As a general rule of thumb, the more dangerous the area you live in, the more security you need to protect yourself and your assets. Likewise, the more valuable your property and assets, the more security you should have. Because Overton is low on crime, you may be able to get away with less security than you might need in more dangerous areas. With that said, if you have a lot of valuables in and around your home, a beefier security system may still be a wise choice.
Basic, effective security systems should–at the very least–monitor your doors and windows for unauthorized entry, and alert you and/or local law enforcement when an intruder has entered your home. More sophisticated systems can incorporate more advanced functionality, such as motion detection, perimeter monitoring, CCTV and video monitoring, and more.
No matter what functionality and technology you go with, you need to be sure you have a security system you can depend on. Not all security systems are created equally, and the last thing you want is a system that throws false alarms when there’s no danger present. Not only can false alarms cause undue stress, but too many false alarms can lead to fines and slower response times (in the event of an actual break-in). Even more important, you want to ensure your system sounds when an intruder IS present–or else it’ not much a security system.
When it comes to deciding which security systems and technologies are best for your needs and budget, it can be daunting making the right decisions. Fortunately, you don’t have to be on your own. Working with reliable security experts can make it simple and straightforward to ensure you’ve got the coverage you need and can depend on. 3D Security, Inc. has been helping residents in Overton, TX and all of the East Texas region secure their homes, families, and assets for almost 30 years–and we’d love to help you.

Overton Industrial & Business Security System Options
If you run a business or organization in Overton, your home isn’t the only thing you need to protect. Your business is your lifeblood, and it’s likely important not only to yourself and your family, but many others in the area–from the staff and employees who work there to those who count on the products and services your business provides.
Because of this, ensuring your business/organization is protected around the clock should be a priority. Many would-be criminals target small to midsize business of all types because they know there’s often hard assets ripe for the picking on the premises at any given time. Even if your business doesn’t handle cash, there are often a variety of electronics and other valuables ready to be harvested and flipped.
One of the best ways to protect your business is to have a reliable business security system working for you around the clock, constantly monitoring and ready to alert when danger is present. There are a wide range of tools and technologies that you can utilize, from door and window monitoring to motion detection and perimeter monitoring, and video monitoring/CCTV technology. You can also utilize more advanced security features such as biometrics, access control, and more.
