Holiday Home Security Statistics and Tips Infographic

Holiday Home Security Stats:

  • The weeks between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day report the second-highest burglary rates of the year.
  • From 2001 to 2011, the average financial loss due to home burglary (per household) rose from $1,500 to over $2,100.
  • Cities with the most break-ins per 1,000 people:
    • Vallejo, CA: 25.38%
    • Cleveland, OH: 20.94%
    • Little Rock, AR: 19.45%
    • Jackson, MS: $19.35%
    • Flint, MI: 19.10%
  • Approximately 65% of home thefts take place in BROAD DAYLIGHT.
  • And 1 in 3 home thefts are by unforced entry (meaning the door was either unlocked or open).

Holiday Home Security Tips:

  • Crooks are 60% less likely to attempt a burglary if they notice a home security or alarm system on the property.
  • Having a security camera on your front porch can help you keep an eye on package deliveries, or help authorities identify thieves.
  • If you’re traveling during the holidays, be careful about what you post on social media. Crooks will be looking for signs that you are not at home.
  • And if you’re staying at home, don’t let your boxes or packaging pile up outside. This clues burglars into what valuables are inside.

If you’re looking for a home security system, but don’t know which one is right for you, take a look at our top recommended home security companies.
