Many of us have spent more time than ever at home in the last few months. Maybe you fixed up your house, organized your belongings, or consumed more media than ever via streaming sites. This could also be a great time to consider how to improve your home security.
Social Distancing and Crime
With social distancing in place, the Greenville Journal reported that Greenville saw an estimated 39% decrease in overall crime rates between April 1-27; however, the number of auto-theft burglaries has increased by 19% compared with the same period in 2019. As future economic trends remain uncertain, it is important to be vigilant. Historically, economic instability has been accompanied by a rise in crime rates, especially burglaries, robberies, and vehicle theft.
Thankfully, more Americans than ever are taking safety into their own hands. According to a recent report, “2020 Home Security Consumer Shopping Study,” by Safehome.org, 10 million Americans intend to purchase or upgrade their home security system in the next 12 months. This trend will help grow the home security system ownership from 24 million today to 37 million by 2023. Technavio also reports that the connected home security market is expected to grow by 11.09 billion between 2020-2024.
