Do I really need a home security system?

According to Alarm System Report, more than 2 million home burglaries are reported to authorities in the United States yearly. A home break-in occurs approximately every 13 seconds in the U.S. That's around 6,000 burglaries a day. While the Western United States has an overall 21% burglary rate, Los Angeles is one of the top 10 cities in the United States for home burglaries.

Home alarm systems are one of the main deterrents to home burglaries. Statistics say that they do have an impact. That said, one of the biggest reasons to get a home security system is peace of mind, which is a factor you can’t measure.
