Protect Your Home from Crime
Practical and Frugal Home Security
Home Safe Home
Ever wonder what goes through the mind of a burglar? Well, SimpliSafe home security sent a team of us out to hit the streets for some raw data. We got the chance to sit down with burglary professionals and ask them some real tough questions. It wasn't easy getting these questions answered, but we got them! We gathered the most common answers and assembled them to give you an inside look into the mind of a burglar. It's time for you to meet Bob, your local burglar.
Hello, my name is Bob and I'm your local neighborhood burglar! First I'm going to tell you what I look for before breaking into your home, and then I'm going to tell you how I can break into your home. I'll even tell you what I'm doing and looking for inside your home.
A lot of people ask me why I do what I do, and why I haven't been caught yet. Do you know what I tell them? Because people don't realize how easy they make it for me. I shouldn't be doing this, but I need a challenge!
Here's what I'm looking for to make your house my next target:
Here's how I break into your home:
Now here's what I'm doing once I'm inside your home:
And that's it folks. It usually takes me about eight to twelve minutes to get in and out of your home. It's as easy as that!
In closing, there are a lot of things that you can do to avoid someone like me. A security system is a no-brainer. If that's not an option, leaving a TV or stereo on during the day usually helps someone like me avoid your home. This usually indicates someone is home. Also most burglars won't even attempt entry if they know there's a large dog in the home.
So now you know my methods and secrets. Hopefully, this will help you avoid bad guys like me. If not, I'll be lurking around. So, once again, I'm Bob, your local Burglar, and I'll be coming to a city near you!
