Protecting your home from intruders is what we live and breathe! Apart from the obvious financial loss, a break in can cause emotional upset and disrupt lives. Most people don’t consider the full implications of a break in to their home until it’s too late. And if you haven’t taken adequate steps to ensure your home is secure, in many instances insurance companies will not pay out. To elevate your security, you can invest in additional physical security devices to deter even the most determined of burglars.
You think alarm systems will keep criminals out? Think Again!
An alarm lets you know when someone is already inside of your property. As a burglar only needs a few seconds to get inside, an alarm, by itself, is not enough.
- 93% of burglars are successful when using forced or unlawful entry to gain access to your home
- Millions of pounds are lost due to break-ins every day
- Home invasions are on the increase in the UK
What really happens during a burglary?
A person walks up to your front door and rings the doorbell to check if anybody is in. If nobody answers, the person leans back and with one kick is through your front door. What happens next? Your alarm system is activated. The only problem is that the intruder has already entered your property. Any smart burglar knows that they have, on average, 15 to 20 minutes before the police arrive (if they come at all). Three to five minutes later, the burglar is gone with most of your valuables.
The only benefit of a stand-alone alarm is alerting you or your neighbours that an intruder has entered your home.
