When Do The Majority Of Burglaries Happen?

July 24th, 2019

Firstly, let's start off by saying that burglars do not stick to a strict schedule. They do not have typical 9 am to 5 pm jobs, nor do they only work under cover of darkness at night. Whenever an opportunity arises, that is usually when the perpetrators strike. However, from a statistical standpoint, according to safewise.com, most burglaries occur between the hours of 10 am and 3 pm, including right here in Houston. Why? Well, homeowners and their family members are regularly gone to work or school during this time frame.

People Are Sometimes Present Though

Many times, burglars will case a location before they break-in. They will study the homeowner's schedule to find what they believe to be the perfect day and time to rob the place. On other occasions, thieves simply wait for an opportunity to arise without doing any research and take their chances when breaking into a structure. Either way, miscalculations can become part of the equation, and loved ones are home during the robbery. They are often verbally or sexually abused and experience acts of violence.

Burglars Can Get In And Out Quickly

Burglars are good at what they do as they have done the deed time and time again. While many Houston residents believe these criminals stick around for lengthy periods rummaging through drawers, making sandwiches, and taking showers, nothing could be further from the truth. Most studies reveal that thieves can get in and out of a home with the valuables in as little as 10-minutes or less. Hence, homeowners must find efficient ways to protect themselves, their family members, and their belongings.

Consider Installing Security Cameras With Video Surveillance Service

There are all kinds of security cameras on the market today. Each one has its own unique pros and cons. Some of the most common models include but are not limited to...

  • Pan, Tilt, And Zoom Cams

  • Bullet Cameras

  • Dome Units

  • Night Vision Models

  • Covert Cams

Most of the devices have software or apps that make them compatible with smartphones. Therefore, Houston homeowners can receive alerts and view live feeds right from their phones. This aspect is a big draw for many consumers, but still, others want more. Of course, nobody can blame them, especially when safety and security are the primary topics of concern. That is where video surveillance service comes into play. 

A video monitoring company watches over the premises 24/7. Thus, whether you are home or not, you gain the peace of mind in knowing that professionals are overlooking your property. If they receive an alert, the agency will review the footage to see if the threat is real or merely a cat knocking over a trashcan. Should the danger be authentic, the representative will contact the proper authorities to get them to the scene in the blink of an eye. 

Regardless of when a burglary takes place, there are plenty of security measures one can take to safeguard their home. Do some research to study items such as motion activated lights, window/door sensors, and more. Then, whenever you are ready, give our organization a call.

"Steve I just wanted to thank you and your partner Ray Kindsfather for the fine work you men did installing the security cameras around my home. The quality of the pictures is excellent, the clarity in day or infrared mode is exactly what I was looking for. What good is a camera if you can't identify the person and these cameras will greatly assist the police in identifying a perpetrator. The computer side of the job is easy and fast with very little adjustment time for me in finding what I want to see. Software and hardware get A+++++ no doubt about. The Ring is equally easy to use and the quality of the camera is equally strong. The installation was clean and fast. You maintain a clean site, it’s like you were never here. You answered all my questions with pin point accuracy. Integrity suits you well. Your answers were honest and to the point. Refreshing in today’s world. All and all you and Ray make a strong team at DWS Technology LLC. I have no problem recommending you to friend or family, home or business. God bless you both with your business. I will call you for future installations. "

"Ray, in reviewing several different security cameras there were many good products, but none met my criteria of clarity and no long-term contract. Raymond, you showed me one product that caught my attention with the clarity and distance viewing that I could not get with other systems. The zoom after a few feet became distorted with the other systems but with the Alibi NVR package you demoed, we could zoom in and out with clarity which made this product stand out from all the rest. The NVR system is so simple, in fact, anyone can configure the system to suit their needs. You can monitor your home from your smartphone or tablet and having security cameras makes it a great deterrent for criminal activity. DWS Technology delivered as promised! Your installation crew worked clean and treated my home as if it was their own. Great attention to detail! I will recommend DWS Technology to anyone! Great job guys!"
