6 Surprising Facts About Home Security

As a homeowner, you must be extra vigilant about security on your property, which is why it’s so important to invest in an alarm system or home automation products that will allow you to have greater control over the activity in your household.

But before you decide which security products are right for you, here are 6 surprising facts about home security you must know:

1. In the majority of burglaries, thieves gain access to the home through unlocked windows and doors. While it may seem too obvious, the truth is that many burglars gain access to homes simply by walking, unnoticed by passersby, through the front door. The simple act of locking all your doors and windows can provide a great deal of protection.

2. The greatest percentage of robberies happen during the summer. Statistics show that home break-ins increase during the summer months, whether it’s because people are on vacation or the thicker landscape provides better coverage. Whether you’re leaving the house for a holiday or to enjoy the nice weather, make sure to take precautions to keep your home safe.

3. Renters are just as likely as homeowners to be victims of burglaries. Contrary to popular opinion, renters as just as likely, if not more so, to be victims of burglaries. This is because they’re less likely to have home security systems and have many more people who have access to their homes.


4. Over 60% of burglaries happen during the day. This is because people are usually out of the house at this time and thieves can use the natural light without raising any suspicion. In addition, most neighbours don’t find it suspicious to see activity in next-door houses during the day.


5. Burglars avoid homes with security systems. Did you know that most (60%) of convicted burglars stated that they wouldn’t target a home with a security system? Investing in such products can help reduce your chances of being a victim of crime.


6. The typical burglar resides within two miles of your home. Most thieves target homes that are close by as this makes it easier for them to learn your schedule and strike when you’re not home. Tip: Vary your routine as much as possible and have someone take care of your home when you’re out of town.
