A home security system has been proven to be effective in keeping burglars at bay. According to studies, “83% [of burglars] admitted that they specifically look to see if there’s an alarm; 60% would change their mind if there was one installed.” This statistic alone proves you should invest in a home security system. Other statistics provided by the same source that highlight the value of a security system include:

  • 60.5% of burglaries involved no weapon; 30.1% did involve a weapon; 9.3% of victims were unsure if a weapon was involved.
