Evaluating the Cost of a Burglary

March 14, 2013

This year, one in five homes will be burglarized, according to the FBI’s Crime Reports. On average, the property loss will be around $1500, not counting the damage to the house that is caused by the break-in. Using these statistics as an example, let’s say that your monitored home security system (with several installed sensors) costs you $50.00 per month. This equates to about $600 per year. If the average loss from a burglary is over $1500, isn’t having a monitored home security system a more economical option? This doesn’t count any additional protection, such as flood sensors, fire sensors or carbon monoxide detectors.

2 Krew Security & Surveillance charges only $24.95 per month for a basic home security package monitoring fee or $14.95 if transferring your existing alarm monitoring service.
