Why Have A Home Alarm System?
People invest in home alarm systems because they want to keep themselves, their family and their home safe from intruders. Extensive studies on alarm systems have shown that residential burglar alarm systems decrease crime. 60% of convicted burglars have said that the presence of a security system influenced their decision to target a different home.
It simply makes the location less appealing to would-be and active intruders.
Other studies have found:
· Most criminals burglarize a home in less than 10 minutes.
· 34% of burglars enter through the front door and go straight to the master bedroom.
· 70% of home invasions occur when someone is not home.
· Most burglaries take place between the day hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.
Smart Home Technology is popular among mainstream home owners today because of it’s lifestyle convenience benefits. One of the key elements of smart home technology is security.
