The Most Common Ways Burglars Enter A Home
Common Ways A Burglar Enters Your Home
The Front Door:
The Most Common Way Burglars Break Into Homes is threw the front door. Over 34% of break-ins happen from the front door. The most common time of the day for break-ins to happen is between 10 AM and 3 Pm when most homeowners are away at work and school. To help prevent a burglary remember to always lock your doors. A home security system is always important and should include a door/window contact installed on the front door.
Back Door / Patio Doors:
The back and patio doors are used more than 24% of the time to break into a home. Often they are not visible from the street offering a burglar privacy. Keep shrubs and hedges trimmed. Install motion sensor lights in the back and sides of your home. Place a security system sign in front of your home as well as security stickers on the windows. Make sure that your alarm system includes glass break sensors. If the burglar breaks a back sliding door the glass break sensor will activate.
All windows are at risk for home break-ins Including hurricane proof windows. In addition to door / window contacts installed on the window make sure to include motion sensors. A motion sensor will activate if someone enters the home. Large pet motion sensors are designed not to activate if you have pets in the home and can be used in a home with animals up to 80 pounds.
