Having a safe place for your valuables, and even your family is essential in the event of a home invasion.
Most security specialists use the term Safe Room instead of Panic Room to define the idea of having a secure location within your home to retreat to in the event of an intruder. The concept is actually pretty simple, confining a room inside of your home where you and your family can hide safely during a home intrusion or other terrorist threat and call the police for help. According to law enforcement across the country, home invasions have steadily increased since 1995. According to statistics 1 in 5 homes will experience some sort of invasion in the US. It is our mission to provide security and the means for you to protect yourself in the event of an intrusion.
We at Bee Safe Security have built some of our safe rooms more like a walk in bank vault or a security bunker some with eight-inch thick concrete walls and a concrete filled vault blast door. These additional extravagant designs are usually chosen by the home owner because they want to store such things as cash, valuable jewelry, and prized collections. We also build some that have reinforced walls and equip the room with video monitor systems, a cellular type telephone, and an alarm keypad for extra security.
Unlike what you see in the movies, most people that decide to build a safe room want one that is simply designed so they can get inside the room and trigger an alarm or call the police for help. There are multiple reasons people choose to build a safe room, with one of the most common being fear of an attack from a home intruder or even an abusive partner or spouse. Another reason being for celebrities, politicians or just people that are in the public eye and or considered to be wealthy and or have dangerous enemies to construct a safe room is the fear of stalkers, robbery and or the horror of kidnapping for ransom or revenge.
Most people do not realize what the chances are that a dangerous intruder will find his way into your home; you’ll want to pay close attention to this. The fact is, the United States is the world leader of burglary occurrence and there is one every 15 seconds, that’s four burglaries that occur every minute which adds up to 240 home invasions in every hour. That’s 5,760 times a day that a criminal breaks into somebody else’s home. So you do the math, chances are that someday the odds will not be in your favor.
What could be more terrifying or fatal than a home invasion, specifically if it could possibly end in murder? Almost every day there is news of home invasions that are violent and unfortunately resulted in murder. Home invasions include all types of crimes including battery, burglary, robbery, assault, rape and murder.
According to the information that was collected by the Statistics USA and FBI –
One home burglary occurs every 15 seconds.
Most of the home invaders come in through the front door.
1 out of 5 homes that are victimized by an intruder results in murder or some other form violent crime.
These are alarming statistics. It has also been discovered that unsecured premises are targeted by burglars. The burglars seem to realize that even if your home has a security system, that for the most part the majority of homeowners do not tend to activate it until they decide to go to bed. With that being said, they believe, the perfect time to infiltrate the home is before bedtime, and that is why the risk is much higher that they will be interrupted by a member of the household and therefore raises the chances of the outcome of the crime turning to violence or even murder.
An intruder is usually a stoned faced hardened criminal and carries a weapon of some sort, which leaves you and your family at their mercy. If you do not do as they say, such as giving them your valuables, cash, combination to your safe, information or whatever they demand, the result can be violent and or fatal.
The intruder generally comes right in through the front door, which if there is no security alarm or if the alarm is not activated is very easy. While many burglars just kick the door open, others intruders might just knock on the front door or ring your doorbell. Really, I bet you never thought a dangerous criminal would be so audacious as to come calling like a wanted guest?
According to some statistics, intruders will also pretend to be a salesman, a maintenance worker, cable or internet provider or even a police officer to get you to open the door. Some may even pretend to have a broken down car and they want you let them use your phone to call a tow truck. They may even play on your sympathy and tell you they have kids or a sick person in the car.
These reports also stated that these criminals do not show any discrimination among their victims. It does not matter whether are rich, poor, young, old, male, female, or what your race is, as long as you are an easy target.
Home Intruder Murders: Statistics
The U.S, Department of Justice conducted a study and released its special report on National Crime Victimization in September 2010. According to this study;
Approximately 3.7 million home invasions occurred every year from the years 2003 to 2007. A member of the house hold was present is 28% of these invasions. 7% of the house hold members were victimized.
In 65% of those home invasions and victimization’s, the homeowner and the family member knew the burglar. Only 28% of the intruders were strangers.
According to these survey reports & statistics, it has been detected that home invasion murderers do not decide to kill when they set out to commit the crime. If they are interrupted during the burglary or if the household member resists their demands, then they more often than not handle it with violence.
We offer a variety of services for your security needs. Including hidden Spaces.

What is a Bomb Shelter?
What do you think of when you hear underground concrete bomb shelter? A cold, dark, damp, musky smelling small concrete bunker under the ground full of dust and cobwebs with spiders. Years ago that could have been, shelters were very different then, they were several types such as: personal or family, community, expedience, multipurpose, and also hidden.
Commonly, an expedience fallout bunker was built in a ditch with a durable roof buried under three feet of dirt. Both ends of the dugout shelter had slopes down or they made the entrances with a right angle down to the trench so that the gamma rays were not able to enter. They would create the roof so it was waterproof in case it rained, so it would not leak. They constructed this with a plastic sheet that was buried just a few inches beneath the surface and used things like rocks and or bricks to hold it in down.
The most cost effective bomb shelter was built down in the corner of a basement, and it theoretically offered significant protection. In most of the bomb shelter plans, the walls consisted of concrete blocks. Open doorways and or vents near the floor provided ventilation. They built the entrance to the shelter with an L shape turn to decrease the concentration of the radiation. Back then the civil defense authorities thought a concrete basement shelter constructed out of concrete blocks would be a do-it-yourself project for $150 to $200. Exactly how much safeguard it truly gave you was an unanswered question.
Other sites that families used for such a shelter besides a basement was, they would convert an old underground concrete cistern, below the ground root cellar and many other underground sites. A minimum of four feet of dirt or a couple of feet of concrete would decrease the level of (not stop but decrease the level of) gamma-ray radiation that would reach the family in an underground concrete bunker. Concrete was the favored construction material for underground bomb shelters, with the walls being a minimum of 12 inches thick.
The federal government suggested that underground concrete bomb shelters should be built in a basement or better yet an underground concrete bunker buried in the backyard. This was to get as much substance as possible between survivors, the explosion, and its after-effects.
Today fallout shelters or bomb shelters are very different. Now a days an underground concrete NBC bomb shelter is a sealed off, safe, sheltered room or number of rooms which have been built with new technologies to protect you from nuclear, biological, natural and man-made threats. When we use the word shelter or bunker, we mean “underground”. With a minimum of 4 feet of dirt that covers the top of the bunker, guarding the occupants from radioactive fallout. The underground concrete fallout bunker should be constructed in such a way as to deliver maximum protection from all types of disasters such as but not limited to a nuclear attack. In the event the threat is Nuclear, this predominantly means you will need protecting from the blast wave and shielding from radioactive fallout. So what is the difference, underground concrete bomb shelter, fallout shelter, underground concrete bunker, survival shelter, underground concrete NBC shelter, nuclear bomb shelter, underground nuclear concrete shelter, etc. you can call it whatever you choose they all essentially mean the same thing. But remember just because the name is the same, does not mean they are built the same. There are things that can make them different, such as vault blast doors, NBC filtration systems. Your choice of what you add inside your shelter sets the level of security and your chance of survival depending upon the disaster. So for example if you build a more simple shelter with your concerns being of maybe a local terrorist, possibly tornado’s or economic reasons and you do not set it up for extended stay with such things as NBC filtration system or solar power, or a vault blast door, in the event of a nuclear attack, higher level of security terrorist attack or any unforeseen circumstances that would require you to remain in your shelter for a long period of time, chances are you may not survive. All the research that has been conducted from way back have always said concrete is the best for protection. We at Bee Safe Security only build with concrete no prefab or thin metal easy to install housing from our company. When you put your family’s security in our hands we treat it as if it was our own family.

Then you will have to have it buried in the ground which again means at least 1 maybe 2 local operators with equipment to dig the hole and bury it for you. Then you will also need usually a crane and an operator to take it off the delivery truck and place in the dug hole, adding again possibly 1 or 2 more local people who now not only know it’s there but also the location of it. And wait before you actually bury it you will have to have a local concrete company deliver and pour concrete over the entire thing, this will again include more local people who now know that you have a hidden shelter, where it is located and most likely where the entrance to it will be. That is a lot of local people that now know where you are hiding your families safety.
