Do You REALLY Need Any Home Security Devices?

Share

Have you seen the statistics on home burglary? Many people consider them alarming, and we don’t mean that as a pun. Yes, security alarms are effective home security devices, but they are only one of many. Back to the statistics.

“The FBI tells us that a home burglary happens every 13 seconds in the United States and is the most common threat to your home.

Police also tell us that 90% of all burglaries can be prevented.

Burglars steal $2,119 worth of goods and another $2,000 worth of damage, on average, to every victimized home.

Police usually only clear 13% of all reported burglaries due to lack of witnesses or physical evidence.

Of all burglaries, 60.5 percent involved forcible entry, 33.2 percent were unlawful entries (without force), and the remainder 6.3 percent were forcible entry attempts (unsuccessful).

In 2010, there were an estimated 2,159,878 burglaries. They increased 2.0 percent in 2010 compared to the 2001 estimate.”

If those statistics don’t convince you that you need home security devices around your home, then you need to think again.

Most home security devices provide simple, inexpensive and yet very effective home security. The product referred to above puts out a 110 dB alarm when the protected door or window is opened. It can provide protection for doors and windows, even sliding glass doors and cabinets that holds potentially dangerous products such as drugs, or cleaning products. It is only 2 ½ inches long and comes with alarm batteries and adhesive tape to secure it to the door or window.

Home security devices should only be considered a last line of defense to prevent burglars from getting into your home. You should take some other steps to preclude the burglar from even thinking about breaking in. Those might include eliminating potential hiding places the burglars would use to conceal their whereabouts, installing some fake security cameras around the perimeter of your home and placing some signs in your front yard that warn of a vicious guard dog or of a home security system in place.

So the answer to the question “do you really need home security devices?” is yes absolutely, but only if you want to protect your home and the contents.

Fake Security Cameras Effective Yet Cheaper Home Security

Share

It is a well-established fact that criminals will avoid a home that has security cameras when they’re looking for places to burglarize. It is one of the best two or three deterrents to home burglary. But for reasons of cost-home security cameras can be expensive, instead many homeowners opt for fake security cameras instead.

Fake security cameras offer some of the same physical characteristics of real security cameras including real housing; 24/7 blinking, flashing red LED lights; motion activated movement and realistic looking wiring. As a matter of fact, they are so realistic looking that no one can tell the difference unless they are a trained professional or an untrained burglar from two or 3 feet away.

For those reasons these fake security cameras offer effective yet cheaper home security and an inexpensive way to prevent home burglary.

Here are two examples of what we’re talking about:

Better Home Security With Fake Surveillance Cameras

HOME BURGLAR

Home burglary is as popular as ever, with burglars that is! A home burglary happens every 13 seconds according to Department of Justice figures. So how do you improve your home security to a point where you can actually prevent burglary? An inexpensive, yet effective way to improve home security is by installing a fake surveillance camera.

When a burglar sees a surveillance camera while he is casing a neighborhood, walking by homes that are potential targets, he is more than likely going to skip by that house simply because he doesn’t want to risk the possibility of having his image captured by a security camera.

It is a proven fact, according to law enforcement officials, that next to a barking dog, the next biggest deterrent to home burglary is a security/surveillance camera. Unfortunately for many the cost of just one surveillance camera can be prohibitive. And you can’t just have one; you usually need three or four. Then you need a monitor to see what’s going on and if you want to record, a DVR is needed. It can get pricey!

That’s where fake surveillance cameras come in. They are so realistic looking that a burglar looking at it, especially from the street, cannot tell the difference from the real thing. Almost all of them have flashing red LED lights. That is like saying “don’t go near me.”

This outdoor, weatherproof, five inch long, bullet Flashing Security Camera is a great example of fake surveillance cameras.

It comes complete with a plastic mounting bracket and an authentic CCTV video cable. It can be adjusted to just about any angle and can be used for small business as well as home security.

When the time comes for you to improve your home security and take proactive steps to prevent burglary, consider getting fake surveillance cameras. They will do the job for you at a fraction of the cost of the real thing.

“Knock-Knock” Burglars Wanted By Cops

Share

The Colorado Springs Police Department is seeking the public’s help in apprehending two 20-year-old Hispanic males who are considered armed and dangerous because they stole weapons in a series of daytime residential burglaries-so-called “knock-knock” burglaries. It was unclear how the suspects were identified, but probably by security surveillance footage.

Read the whole story HERE

What Are Knock-Knock Burglaries?

They are the latest craze for burglars to get into a house and steal merchandise. Here’s how they work. Usually one, but sometimes two people ring the doorbell or knock at the front door repeatedly. When there is no answer they go around to the rear and break-in or walk-in if the door is unlocked. That is their way of ensuring that no one is at home. Of course, since most burglaries are done during the day, usually no one’s own home anyhow.

Even if you’re not at home, the Barking Dog Alarm
is an effective deterrent to burglary. It can “see” through doors and windows to protect an area up to 15 feet away. When that protected area is violated by an intruder, the sound of an angry barking dog starts.

Police will tell you that a barking dog is perhaps the best and most effective obstacle you can place in front of a burglar to prevent burglary.

Diversion Safes-Product Review

Share

In today’s blog post we’re doing product reviews of diversion safes. What are diversion safes?

The best way to describe them is as innocent looking, common household products such as food containers, cleaning products or soda cans with hollowed out interiors that are big enough to hold items such as cash and credit cards, jewelry, small collectibles and in some cases handguns.

Some good examples are this Maxwell House Coffee Diversion Safe that has an interior department of 3″ x 3.5″. The container is weighted to give it the feel of the real thing and of course it has the exterior look of the famous tin of Maxwell House coffee. Burglars spend on average 10 minutes inside a home on their burglarizing so you have no chance to look everywhere which is what the appeal is for diversion safes – “hiding things in plain sight.”

Another example is this Outdoor Diversion Safe that can be used to hide keys. No more getting locked out of the house.

Check out all of our other fabulous Diversion Safes to help protect your valuables.

Favorite Targets Of Home Burglars

Share

Reedley, California is located approximately 22 miles south of Fresno and is just slightly above middle-class America with a relatively young population which means they are working people. That area has received a rash of home burglaries in the last couple of weeks.

Read the whole story HERE.

In only one instance did burglars need to use force to break-in. The other burglaries were through unlocked doors or windows. All burglaries happen during the daytime when no one was at home except in one instance when a 50-year-old woman was inside the house-she managed to scare them away.

In every case cash and jewelry was taken and in some instances firearms were stolen. In one case a TV was taken.

The reason we are highlighting these cases is because they are excellent examples of what not to do. Obviously number one is to lock all your doors and windows even when you’re not home. A home burglary occurs every 13 seconds in the United States. A scary statistic is that less than 13% of all burglaries ever get cleared by the Police Department. So it’s a high reward and low risk enterprise.

And don’t think for one minute that burglars don’t “case” their targets. They do their homework and look for homes that appear to be affluent with no visible sign of a security system or other deterrents to do in their burglary.

Burglars are looking for cash and credit cards, jewelry, firearms and other small valuable items that can be easily pawned for quick cash. They spend on average 10 minutes inside a home. They cannot look everywhere. Which is why we suggest using Diversion Safes as a way to hide your valuables.

Diversion safes are common household products with hollowed out interiors that are big enough to hide cash, credit cards, jewelry and in some cases small handguns.

Mail Theft Tips

Share

The National Sheriffs Association which is the group behind the neighborhood watch program puts out a variety of personal safety tips as well as home security tips including these mail theft tips.

One of the most popular ways for thieves to steal your identity is through your mailbox.

1. Don’t leave outgoing mail in an unlocked mailbox.

2. Take your mail to a blue collection box or your local post office and don’t leave your mail in a collection box that is full.

3. Pick up your mail right away after it’s delivered.

4. Get a locked mailbox or convert your unlocked box to the lockable type and make sure that the mail slot is big enough for the letter carrier to insert your mail. Your letter carrier cannot pick up mail from this type of box.

5. Have regular income checks deposited electronically into your bank account via direct deposit.

6. If you are expecting credit cards, checks or other valuable mail and don’t get it, promptly contact the senders.

7. If you see suspicious activity on your street promptly call 911 and report it to police.

8. You might want to “opt out” of receiving pre-approved credit and insurance offers from the credit bureau mailing lists by calling 1-888-5OPTOUT (1-888-567-8688) or by visiting online at www.optoutprescreen.com.

In another case, two men kicked their way into an El Cerrito home only to realize a camera had captured their crime. One tried to knock it out, but it was too late.”
