Tennessee Home Security Systems

In 2009, the burglary rate in Tennessee was 40% higher than the national average. In 2011, there were 62,274 burglaries in the state of Tennessee, which averages out to over 170 burglaries per day statewide. Of those, only 7,662 were solved. The majority of burglaries in Tennessee occur during the daytime, from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., when there are fewer people at home, according to CityRating.com, Chattanoogan.com and TBI.State.TN.us.*

Another startling statistic is that in Tennessee in 2011, 28% of robberies occurred at residences. Over half of all robberies committed in Tennessee involved the use of a handgun.

Helping Protect Your Home and Family Against Burglary

Fortunately, there is a lot the average Tennessean can do to help reduce the risk of being a burglary victim. Here are some tips:

  • "Case" your house as if you were a burglar. Which entrances appear easiest to breach? Where is there overgrown vegetation that a burglar could hide in?
  • Make sure everyone in the house knows that locking up is a priority and should be done consistently. Only the people you authorize should have keys to your home.
  • Install motion-sensitive lighting over your driveway and any walkways. These alone can be enough to scare off an intruder.
  • Get to know your neighbors. When you're on friendly terms with neighbors, they're more likely to speak up if they notice something amiss, like a van parked outside your house while you're away.
  • Put expensive jewelry and cash into a home safe that is bolted to the floor, and don't leave valuable items within plain view of downstairs windows.
  • Consider the benefits of installing a monitored home security system.

ADT Monitored Home Security Systems

Increasing numbers of Tennesseans are finding out how effective and affordable ADT monitored home security systems are. Monitored security systems automatically and immediately notify authorities after a break-in, and many security systems come with a keychain "panic button" that can be used to summon help if a home emergency arises.

ADT monitored home security systems are helpful to every type of household. Single people like knowing they're coming home to a monitored home, and families with children find extra peace of mind with monitored security, particularly if one parent travels extensively for work. Older adults find that they enjoy their independence more when they know their home's security is monitored around the clock. Any household can enjoy greater peace of mind with a home security system.

Technology has made ADT monitored home security systems more effective and easy-to-use than ever. Furthermore, these security systems are very affordable, particularly when you consider the peace of mind they bring. And when you have an ADT monitored security system installed, you don't have to worry about major disruption to your schedule or your house. Today's security systems install quickly and without major upheaval.
