Home Burglary Protection

People give burglars a lot of credit for being clever. More often than not though, thieves are able to take advantage of situations that make their jobs effortless.

Did You Know?

  • Home burglars use a very simple, but tried and true, selection process to determine the homes they hit: unoccupied, easy access, good cover and good escape routes.
    Most home burglars are looking for things that are small, expensive, and easily converted to cash – jewellery, guns, watches, laptop computers, and other small electronic devices are high on the list.
  • The majority of home and apartment burglaries occur during the daytime when most people are away at work or at school. Burglaries also occur when there are obvious signs that no one is home – at night or during long absences.
  • The burglar’s first and most lucrative hit is generally the master bedroom where wallets, handbags and jewellery are routinely left lying on a nearby vanity, ensuite or night table.
  • More than 30% of all home burglars gain access through an open door or window!
  • Burglars dislike alarm systems and particularly dislike dogs. Alarm system window decals and “beware of dog” signs can decrease your chances of being burglarized by up to 75%!

Beyond installing and subscribing to a monitored security alarm service, there are steps you can take to protect yourself against the unpleasant reality of a break-in.  Please refer to the "OTHER SOLUTIONS" section on this page for additional information.
