According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s study on regional crime rates in 2011, 9,063,173 property crimes were reported to law enforcement which caused $156.6 billion in losses. That statistic is alarming enough to make anyone want to beef up security for their property and, depending on how expensive your car or other property may be, your home is likely the last thing you want burgled.
Home security is a classic “better-to-have-it-and-not-need-it than need-it-and-not-have-it” situation. If your house has been robbed before you know the terrible feeling that follows: partially violated, certainly scared, angry and paranoid that it might happen again. Luckily, our friends at SimpliSafe have made an interactive and fun site to show you simple ways to ward off thieves, cat burglars, or any other sort of robbing riff raff that may invade your home.
