According To The FBI A Home Invasion Happens
Every 20 Seconds In The United States
The FBI's most recent public data shows that over $3.9 Billion was lost due to burglaries in 2014. That means the average burglary victim loses at least $2,551 from a home invasion. And most victims lose much more.
We want to do all we can to see that your home is never broken into and you never lose a penny or have to deal with the terrors of a home invasion.
In America huge corporations like Brinks, ADT and the other big security companies have fed us a line of B.S. over the last decade. You’ve seen the commercials, they go something like this.
“Did you know a burglary happens every 20 seconds in the U.S.? Well if you install our fancy alarm system you’ll never have to worry about being robbed, and even better you’ll get a discount on your homeowners insurance!”
These are multi-billion dollar corporations and they spend tens of millions every year running TV ads, Radio ads, sending salesmen door to door and every other form of marketing you can imagine, and we buy into it, hook, line and sinker.
They offer “free installation and free equipment” if you’ll just sign up for their monthly monitoring plans. Then you pay them every month for the rest of your life to “monitor” your house.
And what do you get out of it? Home Alarms Are Only Meant To Deter Criminals, Not Stop Them. Our products are designed to keep the Bad Guys on the outside of your doors, check this site carefully.
Did you know that the average response time for police responding to a home alarm is 15 to 30 minutes according to an article in the New York Times - 15 to 30 minutes!
In more rural or suburban communities the response time may be faster, but you’re still looking at 10 minutes or more before anyone gets to your door.
Do you think a thief can get his job done in less than 10 minutes? A typical home robbery takes 5 to 8 minutes, maybe 10 if they’re amateurs.
Meaning, you’ve been robbed before the police even show up and the crooks are long gone. And that’s the best possible outcome.
What if you happen to be in your home when the door crashes in? You could be in store for the most terrifying 5-8 minutes of your entire life. Your fancy alarm system didn’t do a thing to protect your home or your family.
Seeing an 8-inch sign stuck in the grass out front saying “Monitored By ADT” doesn’t deter them one bit. If a criminal is going to break into your house an alarm isn’t going to stop them.
And all it takes is one hard kick to break in your front door. Just one well placed kick around the door handle will break in 75% of front doors. Most doors are done in less than 5 seconds, right five seconds, and they are in. Are you ready for that to happen?
Or a couple hard yanks on your sliding glass door to lift the entire thing right out of its frame.
Your home is your castle and it should be just as strong as one.
