Lakeland, FL, November 02, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- According to the FBI in 2015 there were over 1,500,000 reported home burglaries in the U.S. Even more than that was over 7,500,000 reported cases of property crime. On average each home suffered $2,300 in losses resulting in over $3.6 billion in property damages total. The most worrisome statistic is that only 13.6% of these crimes resulted in arrests.
Surveillance technology does work well in many instances but fails to physically keep intruders out. There are many instances as people watch remotely as armed burglars are caught on camera breaking into their homes. One instance earlier this year in August (2016) an armed gunman in Atlanta robbed multiple homes while one of the home owner's was still inside.
Most thieves will only spend a couple seconds trying to get inside. If they find that a door or window takes too long they'll simply move on to the next target. Unfortunately most doors and windows installed today are not truly burglar safe and only take a couple seconds to be compromised and the burglary only takes a matter of minutes.
As we can see a major problem with these homes is that despite having a camera they were still burglarized. The crime itself is still committed and even if the thieves were brought to justice the damage had already been done.
With society's increasing reliance on technology and the internet of things we have created this false sense of security around our homes and have forgotten that the best way to keep intruders out is by physically stopping them from getting in. A lot of the traditional options for this type of security however can leave homes feeling very uncomfortable with steel bars and plates covering the windows and doors.
Fortunately there is an option to help increase home security without making your home feel like a prison.
