What You Don’t Know About Home Security Might Shock You


Security should be a top priority for every homeowner. Whether you live alone, with your spouse, family, etc., it’s important to take certain steps to secure your home. In this post, we’re going to reveal some shocking information about home security.


Burglars Observe Homeowners’ Habits


It’s not something most homeowners want to think about, but a burglar could be lurking outside your home, watching to see when you leave for work and when you return. If you have a routine work schedule, he or she will know exactly what time to strike. So the next time you get home from a long day at work, you may find a window broken and house ransacked.


Beware of Service Providers


Whether it’s the cable guy coming to hookup your new TV service, or the pest control guy coming to spray your home for bugs, you should use err on the side of caution when allowing service providers to enter your home. Just because they work for a company doesn’t necessarily mean they have ulterior motives. When the service provider is inside your home, they could be looking for things like a security system, a dog (burglars hate dogs), family members, etc.


Burglaries Target All Homes


Some people assume that burglars only target high-end homes, but unfortunately this isn’t true. While high-end homes tend to have more valuables, they are also more likely to be protected with a security system. Low-to-mid homes, on the other hand, are less likely to have a security systems, making them a prime target for burglars. The bottom line is that you shouldn’t assume your home is safe from burglars just because it isn’t classified as “high-end.”


Catching a Burglar Is Difficult


According to some estimates, only about 13% of burglars are ever brought to justice. This poor conviction rate is attributed to several factors, the two most influential being lack of witnesses and little-to-no physical evidence. Homeowners that go the extra mile with their security system and install a video surveillance camera, however, can catch crooks in the act. Evidence such as this can prove invaluable in finding burglars and bringing them to justice.


‘Hot’ Months For Break-Ins


While U.S. homes are broke into during all twelve months of the year, July and August tend to have the highest rate. This is due largely in part to the fact that many families take summer vacations, leaving their homes vulnerable to burglars.
