Do I need Home Security?

Home Security Every homeowner wants to work hard to keep their home, family, and possessions safe. Many homeowners believe that a security door that includes a lock and deadbolt will be enough to keep their home safe. However, what they fail to realize is that should a burglar get past the security door, there is nothing left to alert you to the criminal activity. A home security system will not only help deter criminal activity, but also alert you to any activity that might occur.

If you aren’t sure about choosing a home security system, consider these interesting facts available from Super Circuits:

  1. A burglary will occur within the United States every 14 seconds.
  2. A burglar can spend up to 12 minutes within your home once they have gained access inside.
  3. Break-ins to residential homes typically take place between 10 in the morning until 3 in the afternoon.

If those statistics aren’t startling enough to change your mind, consider these numbers on criminal entrances to gain access to your home:

  1. 34% use the front door
  2. 23% use the first floor window
  3. 22% use the back door
  4. 9% use the garage
  5. 6% use storage areas
  6. 4% use the basement
  7. 2% use the second floor


Still not convinced? Consider a study conducted by researchers from Rutgers University. They found over a 5 year period that there was a direct link between a decrease in burglaries in a home and the use of a security system. It has also been found that a residential property is up to 60% less likely to be a victim of a crime while a home security system is installed when compared to those that lack the system. It is also important to keep in mind that a home security system can be your first form of defense should a break-in occur. Once the alarm has been triggered, law enforcement can be alerted and dispatched right away.
