In the United States, there is a burglary approximately every 15 seconds, and over the next 20 years an estimated three of every four houses will be broken into. Burglary is one of the most common crimes across the country, but there are many things that homeowners can do to help reduce their risk of being victimized by a burglar.

Helping to Reduce the Risk for Home Burglary in Montana

Burglaries are often crimes of opportunity: in general, burglars target homes that are easy to get into. If it looks like they'll have a difficult time gaining access, they'll usually go somewhere else. Take these steps to help make sure burglars have a difficult time gaining access to your home and possessions:

  • Use deadbolts on all exterior doors and make it the standard practice for your family to lock all doors and windows whenever the house is left empty.
  • Keep track of who has keys to your house and make sure anyone with keys is someone you trust.
  • Spend some time walking the perimeter of your house to search out vulnerable access points. If tall vegetation hides ground floor windows or otherwise provides a convenient hiding place for a burglar, cut it back.
  • Install motion sensor lighting over your driveway and around the perimeter of your house. A bright light suddenly switching on is often enough to startle a burglar into leaving.
  • If valuable items are in plain view of ground floor windows, close blinds or curtains, or rearrange the furniture so that they are shielded from view.
  • Consider installing a home security system.

Home Security Systems in Montana

Montana residents are installing ADT monitored home security systems in increasing numbers because these security systems are affordable and effective. The home security system of today is easy to operate and mostly wireless, so that you don't have to disrupt your home décor to have a system installed

Whenever a break-in or fire is detected, the system automatically notifies monitoring center personnel, who then contact the homeowner. Emergency services are summoned if necessary.

Standard features on the latest home security systems include an easy-to-use LCD control panel that allows two-way communication with the monitoring center, as well as easy arming or disarming of the system. Security systems also come with wireless window and door chimes that sound whenever the window or door is opened.

A passive infrared motion detector is included, as is a wireless keychain remote with a "panic alert" button that notifies the monitoring center immediately when pressed.
