Less than 20% of homes in America are protected by a security system. With the decreasing costs of alarm and camera technology, you can often get protected with no money out of pocket. On the fence about getting a system? Don't be, the burglary statistics are staggering.
Homes without security systems are up to 300% more likely to be broken into.
2,000,000 home burglaries are reported each year in the United States.
About 30 percent of all burglaries are through an open or unlocked window or door.
Nearly 66 percent of all burglaries are residential (home) break-ins.
Renters are just as likely to be the victims of property crime as homeowners.
The highest percentage of burglaries occur during the summer months.
Home security statistics tell us that burglars will usually bypass a house if it requires too much effort or more skills or tools than they possess.
Most breaks are through front or back doors.
Unlocked outer doors to common hallways give thieves a chance to break in through inner doors while remaining out of sight of neighbors and police. Keep outside doors locked
Getting a system to protect your home is only the beginning; automation can make your home SMART.
Thermostats that turn on and off when you come and go, remote light control, water sensors below your well pump or water heater, doors that unlock (using Bluetooth!), outdoor cameras, and even video doorbells that allow you to track packages and deliveries from anywhere.
