You can take a few simple steps right now to make your home more secure.
The United States has the unenviable distinction of being the world’s leader in burglaries: a burglary is committed every 15 seconds in this country—that’s 4 burglaries per minute! Once inside a house, burglars steal, on average, $2,000 worth of items. Did you know that $2,000 is more than what it costs to install an alarm system?
Research has proven that a home security system is the most effective deterrent to home break-ins. In fact, an overwhelming majority of convicted burglars say they bypassed homes with security systems.*
Of course, a professionally installed and monitored home alarm system isn’t the only way to reduce your chances of being burglarized. You can take a few simple steps right now, at little or no cost, to make your home more secure. As easy as these precautions are, you’d be surprised how many of them go unheeded, such as keeping a flat-screen TV where it can’t be seen from the street.
Here’s an actual quote from a convicted burglar:
I love looking in your windows. I’m looking for signs that you’re home and for flat screen TVs or gaming systems I’d like. I’ll drive or walk through your neighborhood at night before you close the blinds just to pick my targets.
