According to an FBI report (2014), 58.3 percent of burglaries in the United States involved forcible entry. A typical burglary lasts for about 8 to 12 minutes and, on average, a burglar will break into a home within 60 seconds.
Since 2015 many DIY home security systems have become prominent in the home security industry with system control using smartphone apps. Sensor installation is often easily performed by residents, however without 24-hour monitoring, especially of fire or smoke alarm activation, the systems are less effective compared to fully-monitored systems.
Video surveillance systems with smartphone-based apps and two-way voice communications capability gained popularity in 2016.
Common home security tips include …
never hiding extra keys outside,
never turning off all the lights,
applying small CCTV stickers on doors,
and keeping good tabs with neighbors.
