How To Secure Your Home In The Best Way?

For most people, if not for all, home is the place that is supposed to be secured the most. It’s where you get back after a long day at work.

It’s where you know you will always be accepted, but most importantly, your family is there. So naturally, you would want it to be safe and protected in the best way possible.

But is it really as safe as we think it is? Are we really doing everything possible to make sure it’s secure?

Statistics And Numbers

According to ABC News, over the past year, there have been 224 home invasions in the Calgary area (postcode 3000) – an increase of 7.15% from last year (208 in 2018). Also, there were 294 carjacking, an increase of 23.8% from last year – 224 incidents.


Further, according to Wikipedia, in the past year, there were 652 burglary incidents per 100,000 people. Moreover, over 2600 theft incidents per 100,000 people have occurred in the past year in Calgary.


The Main Reasons why a certain property is being targeted by burglars:

  • No activity was spotted in or around the house: Meaning, there is no movement inside the house, no lights and there are no cars parked in the driveway. Even overflowing mailbox – all can help the burglars think that the property is empty.
  • Drawing all kinds of attention: Expensive cars in the driveway, Valuable items presented in the yard or next to a window or a door. All can draw burglar attention and interest.
  • Knowing your schedule- Some people try to listen to your conversations in order to find out when you’ll be outside of your house.             A simple Phone call with your friend or family may be the perfect way for a burglar to gather information about when you’ll be gone. Since they know exactly when you’ll be out, it’s easier for them to break into your home.
  • In addition, if you have a very old lock – and no security system, you will make it easier for the burglar to enter the house. Meaning, he will target your place because he knows that the chances of him getting caught are low.

How can I assure my home is secure in the best way possible?

Installing the best security system at your house:

55% of those who had their homes being broken into said they don’t have a security system. Only 29.6% of all Australian homes have working security systems installed.

A security system has many roles in protecting your house. First of all, it alerts you whenever someone breaks into your house and calls the police for help. Furthermore, it’s a great deterrent against burglars. Once realizing that the property they are about to break in has a working security system, the burglars usually give up and move to a different place. That is because of the fear of getting caught. Also, in most of the security systems, there are cameras. So, in case of a break-in, the cameras will capture the burglars and provide proof for the police and for the insurance company.
