Wyoming Home Security Systems

In 2009, the violent crime rate in Wyoming was lower than the national average by nearly 38%, and the property crime rate in the state was 0.15% lower than the national average, according to CityRating.com and AttorneyGeneral.State.WY.us.*

That same year, 2,230 burglaries were reported in Wyoming. In 2010, this figure was 2,122, and in 2011, 1,827 burglaries were reported in the state, showing a steady drop in the number of burglaries. Of the 1,827 burglaries reported in 2011, 136 were cleared, for a clearance rate of about 7%.

Stolen property from burglaries in Wyoming in 2011 was valued at $3,060,053, which averages out to approximately $1,675 in losses per burglary. Arrest and clearance rates for burglary are low throughout the U.S., and most of the time when you lose property in a burglary, you won't get it back.

Fortunately, there are plenty of common sense steps you can take to help protect your home and family from burglary.

Help Lower Your Risk for Home Burglary

First and foremost, burglars want easy access. They also want to find small, valuable items, like jewelry, cash, electronics, and firearms. Finally, they want to be able to make an easy escape. As a homeowner, you can do a lot to help make your home a lot harder to break into:

  • Put deadbolt locks on all exterior doors and use them overnight, and whenever the house is empty.
  • When you leave the house, in addition to locking the deadbolts on your doors, lock windows as well.
  • Walk around the perimeter of your house and see if there are any valuables that are easily visible through ground floor windows. If so, close the blinds or rearrange furniture so that valuable items are shielded from view.
  • Lock up lawn equipment, tools, barbecue grills, and bicycles in your garage or in a storage shed with a lock.
  • When you go out of town, use light timers to make it look as if someone is at home. Have your mail collected and have your yard maintained to avoid tipping anyone off that you aren't there.
  • Consider installing a monitored home security system.

Home Security Systems in Wyoming

ADT monitored home security systems are becoming more popular in Wyoming as more residents discover for themselves how convenient, affordable, and effective these systems are. Once installed and armed, any time the security system detects a break-in or a fire, the monitoring center is notified. Monitoring personnel contact the homeowner and emergency personnel if necessary.

The monitored security systems of today come with an easy-to-use LCD display panel that allows the homeowner to arm or disarm the system and that allows two-way communication with the monitoring center. Additional security system features include passive infrared motion detectors, wireless window and door chimes, and a wireless keychain remote with a "panic alert" button for situations of immediate danger.

Every type of household finds that they benefit from monitored home security. Single people who may be wary of coming home to an empty house enjoy the security systems, as do busy families with children. Older and retired people love the added peace of mind that comes from monitored home security and the convenient keychain remote.
