Why Home Security Is So Important?

The FBI reports that in America a burglary occurs every 10 seconds. A property crime occurs every 3 seconds.

Most American homes are full of valuable electronics and priceless family heirlooms. However, only 25% of these same homes have a security system. The vast majority of security system installations are done after a home has been broken into.

90% of police believe alarms deter burglary attempts. Interestingly enough, 90% of burglars interviewed said they would not attempt to break into a home with an electronic security system.

The numbers are overwhelming:

  • 81% of residential burglaries occur through the first floor.
  • 34% of burglars enter through the front door.
  • 49% of all burglaries occur during the day.
  • 38% of all assaults occur during a home invasion.
  • 60% of all reported rapes occur during a home invasion.
