Connecticut Home Security Systems
The crime rate in the state of Connecticut is lower than the national average: by over 24% for violent crimes, and by just over 4% for property crimes. Burglaries made up 19.4% of the property crimes committed in Connecticut in 2010, according to CityRating.com and DPSData.ct.gov.*
That year, there were 15,158 burglaries in Connecticut: a number virtually unchanged from the 15,151 reported in 2009. The clearance rate for burglaries in Connecticut (i.e. the rate of burglars who were caught and the stolen items retrieved) was 14.8% in 2010, and the items stolen most often included cash, jewelry, office equipment, and audio / video equipment (such as televisions).
Of the residential burglaries that took place in 2010, at least 54% occurred during the day. Just over 3,300 residential burglaries took place at night, while the rest occurred at unknown times. Burglary is one of the most common crimes in the United States, where a burglary occurs approximately every 15 seconds. But burglary is relatively easy to help prevent with common sense steps.
There is much that Connecticut residents can do to help protect their homes and families from burglary:
Many Connecticut homeowners are finding ADT monitored home security systems to be a great investment in their peace of mind. The typical loss from a burglary is estimated at around $2,000, and when personally significant items are stolen, the loss can feel even more significant. Monitored home security systems immediately notify the monitoring center when a break-in is detected. Homeowners are also notified, as are first responders. Home security systems also respond to smoke and fire.
Home security systems can be customized to individual homeowner needs. Basic systems come with wireless door and window sensors that chime whenever the door or window is opened.
