Don't think you need a security system for your home or business?

Have you thought about installing a security system, but put it off because you don't think you really need one?

Well, before you put it off any longer, you may want to consider these facts: In 2013/2014, the average number of homes burgled across Victoria was one in every 73.

According to the Victoria police report 2013/2014, the number of recorded residential burglaries was 28.515 and the number of non-residential burglaries was 15,248.

With these startling statistics, investing in a security system doesn't seem like such a bad idea, does it?

The number one reason to invest in a security system is to protect your family or employees and assets. The simple fact of installing a security system deters crime.


Burglars spend less than 60 seconds breaking into a home. So, anything that made a house harder to access, including home security systems, deadbolt locks, bars on windows, and pins in sash windows, acted as a deterrent.

Most burglars also avoid homes with alarm systems and have been known to say if they did encounter an alarm, they would not attack the home.

The bottom line: Burglars are on the lookout for "soft targets," so making your home or business more difficult to access is more likely to deter a break-in.

started by cooking mishaps or "heating fires," which are caused by central heating units, fireplaces, chimneys, water heaters, or heating stoves.

And unfortunately, these fires could do a lot of damage. According to a 2008 to 2010 U.S. Fire Administration study on heating fires, about 50,000 heating fires occur in the United States each year and result in approximately 150 deaths, 575 injuries, and $326 million in property loss.

To avoid becoming a part of this statistic, consider how a home security system could help you.
