Are you still wondering if you should get a home security system installed in your house? You might think the cost or effort to install one isn’t worth it. However, if you really think about it, can you afford not to have one installed? After all, not only is the safety of your property at stake, but so is the safety of your family. If you are like most people, you could never put a price on your spouse and kids. So why are you waiting to get the single best protector installed in your home? Perhaps the following stats and facts about burglary will help sway your decision.

First, more than 75 percent of all crimes in the United States are property crimes, of which over 20 percent are burglaries. This means that if you are a victim of a crime, you have a three in four chance of the crime being a property crime. It is most likely going to occur at your residence, since nearly 66 percent of all burglaries are executed in a residential setting. These crimes take place usually during 6 a.m. and 6 p.m., when most people are not at home because they are at work.

One burglary takes place every 14.6 seconds in the United States and this number is increasing all the time. In fact, burglary is up by 1.2 percent since 2005. This might not seem like a lot, but given the millions of people in the United States today, that number represents thousands of homes that are burglarized every year that wouldn’t have been just seven years ago.

Another reason for you to install a home security system is because there is no practical way for you to watch every entrance to your home at one time. With a burglar alarm, you don’t have to worry about the 34 percent of burglars that come through the front door, the 23 percent of burglars that enter through a first-floor window, the 22 percent of burglars that enter through the back door, the nine percent of burglars that enter through the garage, the four percent of burglars that enter through the basement, the 4 percent of burglars that enter through an unlocked entrance, the two percent of burglars that enter through a storage area and the two percent that enter on the second floor. With a monitored alarm system, all of these potential entry points will be watched 24 hours a day so you can relax and enjoy your life.
