Called the ‘Land of the Enchanted’ because of its scenic beauty and rich cultural heritage, New Mexico is a wonderful place to call home. Being a resident of this beautiful state, you might enjoy the Albuquerque hot air balloon fiesta, the chili, the semi-desert landscape, Apache and Pueblos and the majestic pine forests.
But here’s a surprise. New Mexico made it to the Forbes list for ‘States People are Fleeing in 2014’. Could it be because of the following?

There were a total number of 1,025 burglaries per 100,000 in New Mexico, as compared to the 670 per 100,000 in the US
Assault cases amounted up to 419; robberies were 88, thefts 2,313 and vehicle thefts 262, and nearly all of these figures are above the national average. (All figures are per 100,000) (USA.com)
Instead of waiting around to find out why your state landed on such a list, you should take note of the shocking crime figures and do something to, at the very least, protect yourself and your family against them.

Home Alarm Systems in New Mexico
A home security system will help you defend yourself against these rising crime rates. All you need is a simple wireless or hardwired security system with a set of basic accessories including window, door and garage alarms, sensors and detectors. Once you know the possible points of intrusion in your house, it would be fairly easy to determine the number of sensors and detectors you will need.
Motion sensors are one type of sensors that could be installed almost anywhere. Outdoor motion sensors come particularly handy since they are designed to detect intrusions as soon as a trespasser steps on your premises. Motion sensor lights, infrared beam motion detectors and motion activated LED lights are used in outdoor settings. Motion sensing floodlights are a fairly common outdoor motion sensing device as well. These are preferred over outdoor motion alarms since they make no noise, and since false alarms are relatively frequent with outdoor movement detection, motion sensor lights will not cause any nuisance to you or your neighbors.
