Home Security Systems Help Prevent Burglaries




Many homeowners ask themselves if their home is safe once they leave it for work or other activities.  Home security is a concern, and a cause of worry, for many homeowners. One of the biggest threats to home security is burglary. In the United States alone, over 500,000 burglaries are committed each month. Yet, only one percent of burglars ever go to jail, and what’s worse, the jail time for people who commit burglary is often less than 14 months.

The FBI or Federal Bureau of Investigations reports that a burglary occurs somewhere in the U.S. every 15.4 seconds. It is the most popular threat to the American home. A classic example of a burglary is entering and stealing private property when the owners are at work or school or on vacation.

Most burglaries occur during the day and the most common months are July and August when it is hot and more people are out. Young men under the age of 25 commit most amounts of burglaries. Favorite stolen items are money, guns, jewelry, laptop computers, and other small electronic devices.

Home Security Systems Help Prevent Burglaries 1

Seventy percent of people who commit a burglary use force when breaking, but entering through an open door or window is preferred. Screwdrivers, pliers, and hammers are most often used to get into a house. For homes that are not equipped with any security system, many people who commit a burglary in these homes can do it without ever being caught.

In fact, burglaries of homes are not random happenings. People don’t enter a home without considering what type of home it is. Burglars choose homes that are unoccupied and have easy access, allowing the burglar to stay undiscovered and have an easy way to escape. A skilled burglar can enter, take what they need, and leave a house all in a short period of time.

For burglary, along with home invasions, home security systems are excellent to have in the home. Furthermore,  home security monitoring systems have proven to be excellent for catching burglaries on camera for the crime to be reported to authorities. A good home security monitoring system has a  system that will monitor your home  24 hours a day and seven days a week.

If there is an emergency, your home security monitoring system will transmit signals back to what is known as a monitoring center. The monitoring center will try to contact the homeowner. If the person answering the phone can not supply a personal identification code or answers the phone, the police are called.

This means that authorities can be contacted to investigate suspicious activity at your home while at work, school, or on vacation. For many homeowners, this feature provides huge peace of mind. Professional home security systems include digital keypads, keychain remote access, infrared interior motion detectors, high decibel alarm sirens, battery backup, and professional installation.
