Home Security: Daytime is Primetime for Home Burglaries

How AmeriSecure® home security windows can help protect your property and loved ones.

According to an article published by A Secure Life®, the FBI’s 2012 Crime Report on home security states:

  • • 1 in 36 homes in the U.S. will be burglarized this year.
  • • 65% of home burglaries occur between 6AM and 6PM; in other words: during daytime hours.
  • • Of the top 10 cities for home burglaries, 6 are in the Southwest: Houston (#1), Phoenix (#4), Los Angeles (#5), Dallas (#6), San Antonio (#7), and Las Vegas (#8).
  • • 34% of burglars enter through the front door.
  • • 23% of burglars enter through first-floor windows.
  • • The 1st area to be targeted by a burglar is the master bedroom.
  • • The 2nd area to be targeted by a burglar is either the home office or any formal areas.
  • • The most targeted items to be stolen are: cash, electronic equipment, gold, silver, jewelry and guns.

Most burglars who are interested in robbing your home, attack during daylight hours. Many families are away, however; if you are a retiree or stay-at-home parent, you may very well be home at the times a burglar is likely to strike.

AmeriSecure® windows by American Openings can help protect your home and your family without the use of unsightly and expensive security bars or screens. AmeriSecure® windows are designed to crack, but not break, seriously impeding an intruder from entering your home by breaking a window. Watch a video demonstration.

While security systems and alarms are an effective deterrent and can be an important part of your home security strategy, AmeriSecure® windows actually provide a physical obstacle to an intruder. If you are at home while a burglar is trying to break your AmeriSecure® windows, you will have time to release your dog, call 9-1-1 or take other protective measures.
