How to Protect Your Home from a Break-In
Our team at Lynden Security Systems wants to provide a quick guide to understanding why break-ins happen, and how the best in home security options like alarms and cameras can help protect your property.
When Do Break-Ins Happen?
While it may come as a surprise to some, break-ins don’t occur most often at night, in fact, it is the daytime in which they are most common. The reason for this is because most individuals will be at work and their children are at school during the daytime. The most common times for burglaries to happen is between 10 am-3 pm.
Burglars Prefer the Summer
While break-ins happen year-round, summer appears to be the more popular time for burglars and robbers. One reason for this is because, during the warm summer months, people are not in their houses as much. Spring and summer vacations happen, and with the nice weather weekend trips and outings are far more common. Conversely, in the winter – especially in colder areas – families and individuals spend much more time indoors battling the frigid temperatures.
How the Best Home Security Systems& Cameras Can Help
When you invest in a home security system, there many different options and products you can choose from. The best home security system options allow for home automation features and include security cameras and 24/7 monitoring.
With home automation, you can control your entire alarm system (and more) from the touch of your smartphone. In the event, you are not home and have forgotten to arm your system, or you want to check in and see if your family is home, you can access your system and cameras from your cell.
Also, ensure that the security alarm company you choose provides 24/7 alarm monitoring services. The alarm monitoring option means that if a break-in occurs, a security operator will notify you and the appropriate authorities. This is a vital feature since a good alarm is only as good as the people/company watching it.
