Every 13 seconds, a home break in occurs in the United States – this equals out to 240 home invasions and hour and 6,000 per day. Roughly, 2 million home burglaries occur in the US every year. This is a scary number and many people are just sitting ducks waiting for someone to come into their home. As more and more people get home security systems, the chances that you will be the next home increase if you don’t protect yourself.
You need to think about these statistics and what they mean when it comes to protecting the people that they love. Less than 20% of US households have a home security system. As crime rates continue to grow, we hope that these numbers will as well.

One of the biggest reasons to invest in a home security system is to help prevent a crime from occurring in your home. Most burglars will see signs of a home security system – signs, stickers, keypads, cameras, etc. – and move onto another home. This is because they know that they will fail. Of course, they have to know the security company and see that the equipment is quality. If you have a cheap security system with wires that are easily cut, they might just do that and go inside.
However, with quality companies like LifeShield, they know that they cannot cut the cord and expect it to stop working. Every piece of a home security system that you add helps to prevent a break in.
Now, most people do not get a home security system because they believe that there isn’t a value in it. However, a break-in can increase your home insurance costs and can take priceless things from you – like your peace of mind, family heirlooms, innocence, and even lives.
With LifeShield, you also get monitoring for flooding, fire, smoke, and carbon monoxide.
Only you can make the determination whether or not you need a home security system.
An alarm system, which is part of a LifeShield home security system, helps to protect you when you are in your home. This alarm will sound as soon as someone breaks the perimeter of your home, giving you time to react and get yourself and your loved ones to safety.
If you aren’t home, it can alert your neighbors that there is something going on.
Mostly, the alarm will just scare the intruder, hopefully causing them to immediately leave.
