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