SABRE’S motto is “Safe Is Smart,” and that’s why we don’t stop at offering industry-leading products: We also provide you with the facts you need to keep your home and family safe. Today, as part of our #WhereTheHeartIs initiative, we’re sharing home security statistics from a recent report, Understanding Decisions to Burglarize from the Offender’s Perspective, and letting you know what this information means for you.
- Stat: “Most burglars (79%) reported an interest in acquiring cash during their burglaries, followed by jewelry (68%), illegal drugs (58%), electronics (56%) and prescription drugs (44%)."
What this means for you: You can help protect your belongings by making these valuables harder to access. Safes and unlikely hiding places are good ideas.
- Stat: 60% of burglars are deterred by just knowing there’s an alarm system installed.
- What this means for you: It’s easy and affordable to reduce your burglary risk by more than half! SABRE’s Home Security System retails for $119.99 with no monthly or installation fees. Not in the budget for the time being? Give burglars the impression you have a security system at a fraction of the cost with a security system yard sign.
- Stat: 20% of burglars cut phone or alarm wires.
What this means for you: Choose a wireless home security alarm system so that burglars can’t render it useless.
