Home Surveillance Systems (Why They're a Good Idea)

Police solve only 13% of reported burglary cases due to lack of a witness 


When do burglaries occur?

  • There are 1,495,790 burglaries during the day. Break ins are 6% more likely to occur during the day between 6am and 6pm while people are at work or running errands.
  • There are 1,324,090 burglaries during the night. The cover of night brings security for intruders but also means people are more likely be home.
  • Snow and cold are also a significant deterrent. The lowest amount of burglaries happen in the month of February.
  • A report from the Department of Justice showed that from 993 to 2010, on average, burglary rates were highest in the summer, with about 9% lower rates in spring, 6% lower in fall, and 11% lower in winter.

The point is:  Surveillance will deter the majority of would-be burglars and, in the event they aren't deterred, video monitoring is extremely helpful evidence in most courts.

A Good Idea

Monitoring your home with a video surveillance system provides safety, security, and peace of mind.  Ultimately, the best systems have data backups to The Cloud where footage can be accessed at anywhere and anytime by you.

Alarm Systems

Home security systems were designed to keep you, your family, and your premises safe from a wide range of dangerous scenarios. Could you ever imagine A Burglar Breaking Into Your Home and stealing your valuables, damaging your property, or hurting your loved ones? Of course not! These are thoughts most of us don’t even want to entertain, let alone dwell upon.

Nevertheless, statistics show that home burglaries are a real threat. According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)burglaries or home break-ins are the most common threat to homes in the United States. So much so that it is estimated that a break-in takes place every thirteen seconds in the U.S.

Home security systems act as an effective deterrent in the case of robberies and break-ins. Many statistics have shown that burglars are less likely to attempt to break into a home in which there is a home security system installed. In addition, in the case of those burglars foolhardy enough to attempt a break-in into a home with a home security system, the likelihood of them being apprehended is substantially higher than them getting away.

Most modern alarm systems are easy to install and require very little know how.  Still, for those wary about setting up their own home alarm systems, many manufacturers offer the option to have their systems installed by licensed technicians for an additional fee.

Did You Know?

Different Extinguishers for Different Fires

There’s a variety of home fire extinguishers to choose from, and each type works well for different types of fires. Fire extinguishers are broken down into different classes, listed below.

  • Class A: These distinguishers are designed to put out fires on ordinary combustible materials such as firewood, plastic, cloth and paper. Class A extinguishers will serve you best if you keep them near a fireplace. Note that you can use water to put out these fires as well.
  • Class B: Use Class B extinguishers when the fire’s fuel source is a combustible gas or liquid such as gasoline, ethanol or propane. These flames can burn out quickly if the fuel source is removed, but they can also spread fast. Keep this type of extinguisher in places like your garage, workshop or shed.
  • Class C: These extinguishers are designed to put out electrical fires. Until the electrical source is cut off, the fire can continue to burn. Be aware that water cannot put out an electrical fire and doing so may lead to electrocution.
  • Class K: These home fire extinguishers work by turning the fuel into soap. Beware that water can cause grease fires to spread, so it’s important to keep this type of extinguisher in easily accessible areas such as under the stove or sink.


Some Statistics to Warrant Owning at Least One Fire Extinguisher

  • Fire extinguishers can effectively put out 80% of all fires, even if the extinguisher is classified as a portable unit. When a fire extinguisher is used on a fire in the United States, 75% of the time, the fire department is not required to attend the incident. (EnGauge Inc.)


  • Data in Europe on fire extinguisher use is similar to data generated in the United States. In 2,600 tracked incidents, 81.5% of incidents with a portable fire extinguisher resulted in a fire being extinguished. In 74.6% of the incidents, the fire department was not required. (EnGauge Inc.)
