Nebraska Home Security Systems

In 2011, the overall crime rate in the state of Nebraska edged up by 2%. In 2009, the state's violent crime rate was lower than the U.S. national average by nearly 24%, while the state's property crime rate was lower by just over 24%, according to and*

That same year, violent crimes in Nebraska decreased by 8% compared to 2010 figures, but property crimes in Nebraska increased by 4%. Across the United States, there is a burglary on average every 15 seconds, and 88% of them are residential.

While burglary is a common crime, Nebraskans can do quite a bit to help lower their risk of burglary.

Help Lower Your Risk for Burglary

Easy access is what burglars look for first when casing a home or neighborhood, and many burglaries are crimes of opportunity. Do your part to avoid presenting a good opportunity to burglars:

  • Lock all windows and doors every time the house is left empty, and when everyone goes to bed at night.
  • Use deadbolts on every exterior door and make sure the only people with keys are people you specifically authorize to have them.
  • If you sometimes leave windows open for ventilation, use window stops that help prevent them from opening more than six inches.
  • Never leave a note on the door for a neighbor saying that you've gone shopping or otherwise indicating your house is empty. Call or send a text message instead.
  • Cut back vegetation near ground floor windows, porches, and doors to avoid giving burglars a convenient hiding place.
  • Install motion sensor lighting over your driveway and walkways. A bright light suddenly coming on is often enough to startle a burglar into leaving.
  • Use light timers when you're traveling to make it look like someone is home. Have your mail and newspapers collected and have your yard maintained.
  • Walk the perimeter of your house and see if valuables are easily visible. If so, draw blinds or rearrange furniture so that your valuable items are shielded from view.
  • Consider installing a home security system.

Home Security Systems in Nebraska

Increasing numbers of Nebraskans are discovering that ADT monitored home security systems are easy to use, affordable, and most importantly, effective. With a monitored home security system, any time a break-in or fire is detected, professionals at the 24-hour monitoring center are notified. The homeowner is contacted and emergency responders are summoned if necessary.

Standard features on current home security systems include intuitive LCD control panels that can be used for arming or disarming the system, and that allow instant two-way communication with the monitoring center. You also get a passive infrared motion detector, wireless window and door chimes, and a wireless keychain remote that comes with a "panic button" that can be used when you're in immediate danger. Older and retired homeowners find these particularly reassuring.
