California Home Security Systems

The state of California reports higher rates of certain crimes than the U.S. national average. For example, California's rates of motor vehicle theft and robbery are higher than the national average, as are property crime rates, according to CityRating.com and BizJournals.com.*

The cities in California reporting the highest rates of violent crime are Oakland, Oroville, Desert Hot Springs, Stockton, and Compton. The good news, however, is that year-to-year comparisons show that all categories of crime are being committed at lower rates than five to ten years ago.

California residents should realize that there are many common sense measures they can take to help protect themselves and their loved ones from crime. Home burglary, for example, is one of the most common nonviolent crimes both nationwide and in California. There is a lot the typical Californian can do to help reduce the risk of burglary.

Risk for Home Burglary

In the state of California, there are, on average, over 600 burglaries reported every day. The average home burglary results in $2,000 in losses for the victim. When items of personal significance are stolen, the emotional toll can be very high. Take these steps to help protect your home and family.

  • Keep doors locked at all times. Make sure all exterior doors have ANSI Grade 1 or Grade 2 deadbolts.
  • Don't leave small valuables in plain sight near ground floor windows.
  • Cut back overgrown vegetation near doors and windows that could give burglars cover.
  • Install motion-sensor lighting over your driveway and walkways.
  • Never open your door to someone you weren't expecting. Just because someone is wearing a hard hat and carrying a clip board doesn't men they work for a utility company. Demand ID and call to see if a worker was sent.
  • Consider installing an ADT monitored home security system.
