Rhode Island Home Security Systems

The state of Rhode Island enjoys a violent crime rate that is lower than the national average by around 30%. However, the property crime rate in the state is slightly higher than the national average, by nearly 5%, according to RI.US and CityRating.com.*

In 2010, 6,135 burglaries were reported in the state of Rhode Island, and that figure went up to 6,822 in 2011, an increase of 11.2%, and an average of more than 18 burglaries per day across the state.

Nationally, the burglary rate is trending downward, but three of every four houses are predicted to be broken into over the next 20 years. Since burglary is so often a crime of opportunity, and since burglars are attracted to homes that offer easy access, there is actually quite a bit the typical Rhode Island resident can do to help protect their home and family against burglary.

Helping to Reduce the Risk of Home Burglary in Rhode Island

Did you know that nationally, some 87% of burglaries are considered preventable? While there are exceptions, most burglars are lazy and look for houses that are easy to get into and where it is obvious nobody is at home. Take these measures to help avoid presenting your home as an easy target to burglars:

  • Put deadbolts on all exterior doors and use them absolutely consistently. Any time a family member leaves the house, the rule should be to lock all deadbolts and make sure all windows are locked.
  • Ensure that the only people with keys to your house are people you specifically authorize to have them.
  • Don't leave bicycles, tools, barbecue grills and lawn equipment outside. Lock these items in your garage or in a shed with a lock. If air conditioner theft is a problem where you live (due to high scrap metal prices), consider installing a locking cage over yours.
  • Don't give burglars a convenient hiding place near ground floor windows, porches, and doors: cut back vegetation and shrubs, and install motion sensor lighting around your home's exterior and over the driveway.
  • Never leave notes on the door saying you're out.
  • Consider installing a home security system.

Home Security Systems in Rhode Island

Increasing numbers of Rhode Island residents are finding out that ADT monitored home security systems are affordable and effective. The monitored home security system of today comes with a user-friendly LCD control panel, wireless window and door chimes, an infrared motion detector, and wireless keychain remote with a convenient "panic alert" button for situations of immediate danger.

The control panel of today's home security system allows instant two-way communication with the monitoring center, as well as quick and easy arming or disarming of the system.

Single adults enjoy the peace of mind of returning to a home that is protected by a monitored home security system at night, while busy families with children like the extra layer of security that a home security system provides.
