If you’re looking for honest statistics and honest reviews about home security, you have come to the right place. The mind-boggling statistics listed below provide a clear indication of just how important it is to start protecting your home with a security system:
- There are 1,495,790 burglaries during the day. Break-ins are 6% more likely to occur during the day between 6 am and 6 pm while people are at work or running errands.
- There are 1,324,090 burglaries during the night. The cover of night brings security for intruders but also means people are more likely be home.
- Snow and cold are also a significant deterrent. The lowest amount of burglaries happen in the month of February.
- A report from the U.S. Department of Justice showed that from 1993 to 2010, on average, burglary rates were highest in the summer, with about 9% lower rates in spring, 6% lower in fall, and 11% lower in winter.
