How to Protect Your Home from Burglars


Is your home secure? Do you feel safe in your own house?


I ask because research shows that a home is broken into every 13 seconds. More than 5 homes will have been broken into by the time you reach the end of this page.


But that’s nothing.


By the time you’re done reading every page we have about home security, more than 100 homeowners and renters will know the gross, violated feeling you get only when someone has invaded your personal space.


And that’s not the most disturbing part. What’s even more disturbing is that only 17% of homes in America have home security systems.


Do you know what that means?


That means that 83% of people in America are at risk of things like:


Having someone break into your home, invading your privacy and peace of mind.

A creepy guy going through your underwear drawer.

Your stuff being thrown around and broken. This includes sentimental – and often irreplaceable – items, such as family heirlooms and photos.

Having your identity and credit/debit card info stolen.

Your family’s safety. What if the burglar has a weapon?

Doesn’t that send a shiver down your spine? Almost as if someone’s looking through your window right now.


Is that why you’re here? Are you one of the 83% of Americans who don’t have home security, but knows they should and are looking for advice for how to do that?


Then you’re in the right place.
