According to Alarm System Report, over 2 million home burglaries are reported in the United States each year and, on average, a burglary of a home in the U.S. occurs every 13 seconds-or about four burglaries a minute, 240 an hour, and nearly 6,000 a day.
Both homeowners and renters need to consider these statistics when it comes to protecting their families, roommates, and possessions. One potential deterrent to home burglaries is a home security system, which, according to statistics, does have an effect on whether or not a burglary will be successful.
The benefits of home automation can include enhanced ‘future proofing’, convenience, security, energy savings, assistance for people with disabilities and improved home aesthetics. While high quality home automation is primarily about improved functionality, you can also beautify your home with elegant home automation components that feature stainless steel or glass finishes: touch screens, Wall Switches or video intercoms.
Just as you would benefit from approaching a building designer or an Architect to design your home rather than a carpenter, similarly you can benefit by approaching a Clever Home automation Engineer for your home automation rather than an electrical tradesman or a sales person.
“Home security” doesn’t only refer to houses; it applies just as much to apartments. Renters have possessions as valuable as homeowners, so they are just as vulnerable, if not statistically more.The same burglary methods apply: burglars will most often attack during the day, and, according to Apartment Search.com, they look for empty apartments with easy access, plenty of cover, and the best escape routes. Crime Doctor reports that more than 30 percent of all apartment burglars accessed the home through an open door or window. For these reasons, it is important to consider and invest in apartment security measures that will keep you, your family, and your possessions safe.
While security systems have typically relied on a home phone or other landline to provide an around-the-clock link to the security company, the age of cell phones forced changes in the industry. These days, the comfort of security monitoring is available without the necessity and extra expense of a home phone line.With more families choosing to forgo a home phone in favor of a group cell phone plan, it makes sense that security companies have found a way to evolve. Although wireless monitoring was originally developed to provide a backup in the event of a blackout or other home phone outage, many security companies now offer it as a standalone service.
