What Time of Year is Most Popular for Break-Ins?

Posted on August 23rd, 2018 by Alert Protective

Did you know that many burglaries happen in the middle of the day? Although you may associate a break-in with the middle of the night, burglars have gotten bolder and more carefree with time. In fact, many of them even use your front door! Investing in Chicago surveillance equipment from Alert Protective can provide you and your family with peace of mind regardless of what time of day or year it is. Here’s what you should know about the most popular time of year for burglars to break in.

A Care-Free Summer

Summer might be coming to an end, but the warm weather might be here for a bit longer. Don’t let your guard down yet: July and August are the two most popular months for break-ins. Windows and garage doors may be left open or you may keep your shed unlocked. Continue to protect your home via Chicago surveillance equipment so that you feel protected at all times. If you have a vacation coming up, it is a good idea to have a neighbor watch over your house.

Beware of Break-Ins During the Day

As stated above, the majority of break-ins occur during the middle of the day. Sixty-five percent of burglaries occur between 6 am and 6 pm. Install security cameras outside of your home and keep an eye on them while you are away.

Alert Protective has many products that can help keep you and your family safe, including security cameras and other home-monitoring systems. Contact us today to get started!
