Home Security in the Spotlight – Anatomy of a Burglary

Last updated on August 5th, 2016 at 01:15 pm

Even if you live in an area with a relatively low crime rate, there is always the risk that one day burglars will pass through your neighbourhood. The good news is that most burglars are opportunistic, and if you invest in some good security measures then they will be less likely to invest time and effort into entering your property.

As this informative infographic shows, even basic home security can make you a less appealing target. Around 67% of the homes that are broken into have no real security measures installed. Investing in a burglar alarm, outdoor lighting and CCTV will greatly reduce your risk of being targeted.

Another good anti-burglary precaution is to invest in good locks. Many burglars enter their victim’s homes by forcing open external doors or windows. Simply having strong window locks and multiple point locks on your doors will make life much harder for prospective burglars. If a burglar realises that your home is not a soft target then it is highly likely they will move on to another property with a less sophisticated security system, rather than risk getting caught attempting to break in to your home.
