Guarantee Home and Family Safety by Installing Security Systems

Thirteen seconds – that is all the time it takes before burglars and criminals break into another home in America. Think about this: even before you finish that next bite, a family is placed under absolute danger.

Crime does not discriminate. Anyone can be a victim – young or old, rich or poor. But here lies the big difference: Homes without security and alarm systems are 300% more likely to be attacked and broken into.

But here’s the catch, only 17% of homes in America have an alarm system and security cameras. It’s no surprise that more than 2 million home burglaries and intrusions were reported in 2012, according to the latest crime statistics released by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). In total, 10 million crimes were reported that year: nearly 9 million property crimes and more than a million violent crimes.
