Homes are a place where we all should feel safe and secure.  As a homeowner, you need to always be vigilant when it comes to the security of your home.  Burglars are more skilled today and exist in various forms which makes a residential security camera installation an essential step for having a secure home.  Another step to improve the security of your home is to know burglar facts so you remain aware of their tactics.
 
Facts To Remember
 
Often, homeowners make the mistake of stereotyping burglars as people who have no jobs and they only attempt to gain entry at night.  Both of those are inaccurate assumptions as burglars might be people that have already been inside your home or on your property.  Think about any instances you needed to have repairs on your home or changed to a different cable company.
 
In some cases, the people employed by those companies may not be long-term employees so always place any valuables out of sight.  If valuables are left out, that tells a potential burglar there are expensive items hidden in your home.  The fact is that burglars may or may not be employed.
 
Additionally, most burglaries occur after 10:00 in the morning and before 3:00 in the afternoon.  That time is common since most people are working or schooling during those hours which means burglars have an opportunity to enter without being caught.  What do a majority of burglars avoid?
 
Signs Of Security
 
Security systems are known for catching thieves in the act but they also help in discouraging them from attempting to enter.  One survey shows 90% of the time a burglar will choose another home if the home they want to enter has a security system.  Ensure your home is safe with a residential security camera installation as burglars usually secure what they want in 10 minutes or less.  Use these facts to your advantage and prevent a potential burglary before it ever happens.
