If you poll a number of people, you'll quickly discover that the conception is that most home burglaries occur at night under the cover of darkness. However, it is a misconception, with the statistics tell a different story.
According to figures from the Office of National Statistics in early 2017, most robberies happy in day-time. In fact, approximately two-fifths of thefts from outside dwellings take place during the morning or afternoon and three-fifths take place during the evening or night. This highlights the increased likelihood of un-invited guests being present during daylight hours and the very real need to protect your property.
To shatter common beliefs even more, most burglars don't go around the back of the house or find a basement entry. Instead, roughly 70% walk right through the front door! Sadly, the front door and porch area receive the least amount of video surveillance.
Is the Front of your property a Potential Target for Burglars?
A major concept realise is that most burglars do not randomly pick out a house to break-in. Instead, they can monitor you schedule, when you leave and return, "casing" the house over a long period of time to determine the best time to burglarise it. Once they've learned the routines and habits of the residents in the house, they plan the break-in around this knowledge.
In most cases, the robbery occurs during the day when most people are at work and kids are at school/ college. Once they force entry through the door, thieves typically spend less than 60 seconds inside a home. They already know what they want to steal. If a criminal can rob your house in less than a minute, your only chance of catching them is installing a security system complete with video cameras.
