Home Security in Connecticut

Connecticut MapOut of every 100 residents of Connecticut, two will experience property crime in an average year. As burglaries, motor vehicle theft, and home invasions increase in prevalence, people in the state are looking for steps they can take to prevent becoming victims themselves.

There are many simple actions that homeowners can take to increase their home security. Because burglars are looking for homes that are unoccupied and easy to access and escape, any measures that make a home more difficult to enter and more visible can help deter any would-be criminals from even making the attempt. Experts recommend using metal or solid core doors at all points of entrance, along with heavy-duty, high-quality deadbolts and dead-latch mechanisms.

An obvious-yet-often-overlooked entry point is the window: especially in warmer months, Connecticut residents should ensure that windows are not only shut but also latched when the home will be empty. Also, sliding glass doors require a secondary blocking device to prevent forced entry. Finally, making sure that the exterior of the home is well-lit and that any shrubbery or other landscaping allows for good visibility from the street can help to convince a burglar that a home will not be an easy target for a break-in.

Even with such steps, many Connecticut homeowners and renters want the peace of mind that comes from a home security system. Popular systems include 24/7 monitoring, affordable pricing, and cutting-edge technology. Remote access is becoming more widespread as users appreciate the ability to get system updates, change settings on thermostats, turn on alarms, and even lock doors from any location using their smartphones, tablets, or other devices on demand. Renters in particular are taking advantage of wireless home security systems, which give them the ability to protect their apartments or homes without needing to have it installed by the landlord.
