Three Things to Keep in Mind for Burglar Alarm Systems

Burglar alarm monitoring

There are many aspects to protecting your home that you need to think about when you are a home owner. Security is one of these things. Did you know that single family, detached homes are the residences burglars are most likely to hit? It is important to have home burglar alarm systems that will protect your belongings, and your family as well. What are some things to keep in mind when it comes to looking for quality security systems?

First, did you know that the typical burglar lives within two miles of their victim, and might even be acquainted with them? This surprising fact underscores a function of home security, in that, unlike pets or people, alarms are not lulled into complacency by way of trust. When a burglar is a neighbor, it increases the likelihood that vigilant neighbors will write them off as harmless. On top of that, the average burglary takes place during the day. This might seem antithetical to the scare stories of burglars in the night, but it does make sense. What time are you and your neighbors least likely to be home? For most families, daytime.

Second, there are many options for home burglar alarm systems. What many people might not realize is that DIY, or Do it Yourself, alarm systems are an option that will save you money on installation. In addition to that, there are also wireless burglar alarms. Although these need to have their batteries replaced every so often, they are useful because unlike a wired alarm system, it is harder for criminals to disable the pathways that alert others to your intrusion.

Third, an important aspect of ensuring home safety is being open about the fact that you are using home burglar alarm systems. Sometimes people prefer not to display the signs or stickers they have saying they are using home burglar alarm systems since they are not so picturesque. This is a mistake, however, because some burglars are deterred by the sign alone. Remember that a typical burglary lasts from 90 seconds to 12 minutes. If the alarm does not go off until they are in your home, they might decide they likely have enough time to make off with several items you own.

Oh wow! It does make sense but I would have always thought my house was safer during the day. Im much more comfortable leaving doors unlocked in daylight, etc. Ugh!
