In 2009, there were an estimated 2,199,125 burglaries.
Virtually all - 97 percent - of home security system owners believe that their systems are effective at guarding against a home break-in, according to a 1998 study of 40,000 U.S. households.
This information is backed by a 2001 study - The Greenwich Study of Residential Security - that found that homes without alarms were 2.7 to 3.5 times more likely to be burglarized.
Most Home Burglaries Occur During The Day. 59% of home burglaries are carried out during the day. 41% of home burglaries are carried out at nighttime.
As of 2009 two-thirds of burglaries intruders use forcible entry, making the detection capabilities of an alarm system a crucial function.
If Burglaries occurred at fixed time intervals, rather than randomly, one burglary would occur every 13 seconds in the United States. This figure is based on 1996 crime statistics as reported by police to the U.S. Department of Justice.
Homes without a security system are nearly three times more likely to be burglarized as electronically secured homes, according to a 1991 study.
A burglarized home can mean both an emotional upheaval and a monetary loss. Victims of burglary offenses suffered an estimated $4.6 billion in lost property in 2009. Overall, the average dollar loss per burglary offense was $2,096.
A home security system can save you up to 20% on your home owners insurance.
