Home security is for everybody. Every home owner should take it seriously. Why?
Because a burglar will attempt (or has attempted) to break into your home.
According to statistics in the US, it will take place in the next several years and almost certainly within a decade.
When a force entry occurs, you can only pray that the thief only wants your money, jewelry and small electronics and not hurting you or your loved ones.
Did you know that more than 2 million home burglaries are committed each year in the United States?
The majority of burglars take items that they can easily carry with them such as laptops, digital cameras, TVs or firearms.
About 85% of thieves are unskilled criminals who are desperate and ready to escalate the level of violence if meet resistance. Because of this, one out of every three attacks are caused by an intruder-homeowner encounter.
Almost all break-ins are accomplished through the front or back door. In the majority of cases, forced entry is done by 1-2 kicks to the door. Why is this?
Most criminals are not smart. They want to commit simple crimes, and, if surprised, they want an easy exit (squeezing out a window is not).
You may think that you can use a weapon for self-defense. This is true, but the problem is that many bad things can happen when confronting a criminal in your home. If you really use a weapon and you wound or kill an intruder, you have to deal with the police and possibly face criminal charges.
