Protecting your valuables is important, and protecting your family is even more important. Home owners are looking for the best home security systems. Oftentimes wireless security systems are chosen for their portability and convenience.
There is some information available about the habits of burglars. While there is a common misconception that intruders usually operate when it is dark out, the fact is that most burglaries happen between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. in broad daylight. Many authorities agree that the reason for this is because a lot of homes are empty during those hours because homeowners are likely to be at work.
The most commonly stolen items are the ones that are small and that are potentially easy to sell. Some of the items that are taken most often are cash, jewelry and electronics. Where a house is located makes a difference. Homes that are located in the center of the street or the block are more likely to be burglarized than the houses located on corner lots. The reason for this could be that the houses in the middle are less visible to anyone who may be passing by than those on the corner.
