According to statistics collected by the FBI a burglary takes place every 14-15 seconds in the United States. Homes are targeted in at least 70% of burglaries and a typical burglary lasts between 90 seconds and 12 minutes. Let's face it, we no longer live in a time when families can leave the door unlocked and the garage door up. Home security is quickly becoming a discussion among millions of people. Here are three insane examples of people taking home security to a whole other level:
1. Serbian River House
This river home was built in 1968 by kids who needed a place to sunbathe. The home is situated in the middle of the Drina River, a river that runs the border between Bosnia and Serbia.
2. The Safe House
This home was dubbed the safest home in the world. The Safe House, designed by Robert Konieczny from KWK Promes in Poland, is made of secured moveable concrete. The concrete walls can be moved to reveal beautiful floor-to-ceiling windows, and can also be sealed shut for impenetrable protection.
3. Casa de Sieger
This enormous residence is the work of renowned architect Charles Sieger, of The Sieger Suarez Group. Located in Miami, this home comes complete with guards and an incredible moat surrounding the entire residence. This is truly an example of luxury meeting safety.
