The most common is the opportunistic break in where an intruder gains access through open doors, flyscreens, poorly manufactured product or poorly fitted product. These intruders are not targeting their victims but are trying to identify the “weak link” of the street.
Another regular type of break in is an intruder that is under the influence of drugs or alcohol. These types of intruders may be known to the potential victim or random. It is particularly important that the security product and installation can withhold a beating from these types of intruders as they will have a red-hot crack. These intruders can be particularly scary for your family and good quality security is recommended.
Then you have the professional intruders, they are targeting a particular house. You may know them from a past relationship or through a connection or simply they have been in your house at some stage and know the valuables you have got. These guys have more time and have an idea of your schedule. No security or poorly installed security makes their lives easy.
There is no doubt that securing your home is more important now than it has ever been. One of the key reasons we put this report together was so customers that felt the need to boost their security considered all aspects of their investment prior to making a purchase that may end up a waste of money if ever attacked by one of the intruders described above.
