I don’t meant to scare you but there were around three million home break ins this year alone. Approximately ten percent of break ins that do occur lead to violent consequences if the owner was in during the time of the robbery. This is why we need to ensure that our homes are kept safe. To help you do this let’s look at some key facts about break ins as well as some of the ways you can protect your property.
Thieves Look For Easy Targets
One of the most important facts to be aware of is that thieves don’t like a challenge. They aren’t looking to test their skills against complex security systems. They want to be in and out with no chance that they were seen or recorded. So, the more protected your home looks the less likely there is to be a break in.
Don’t Tempt Them
Don’t have expensive items on full display behind your home window. This often happens a lot at Christmas when we have rearranged the room to fit in the tree. Suddenly our sixty inch UHD TV is right in front of the lounge window. Avoid this and you won’t make thieves consider a break in.
Catch Them In The Act
It’s sad to say but most thieves aren’t caught because there’s no evidence. Due to this there’s no way of tracking them but that can change if you catch them on camera. This is why you may want to think about investing in CCTV for your home. It will give you the best shot at getting prized possessions back.
