Thinking Like a Burglar and Choosing a Security System


No one likes to think about burglaries and the fact that it can happen to anyone. You may be thinking it could never happen to your home. The sad truth is this; those who do not believe the possibility are typically the ones to which it happens. Letting your guard down and not having a security system in place are just a few of the red flags you pose for burglars.


Our mission has always been to keep our clients safe at all times with security systems, medical devices, high-tech telephones, fingerprint control pads and much more. Burglary is a scary topic, but break-ins are real and happening all too often.


This list consists of common thoughts a burglar often think about when plotting their next invasion. I think after one read through, you will make the smart choice to have a security system installed.


“Of course I look familiar. I was here just last week cleaning your carpets, painting your shutters, or delivering your new refrigerator.”


“Hey, thanks for letting me use the bathroom when I was working in your yard last week. While I was in there, I unlatched the back window to make my return a little easier.”


“Yes, I really do look for newspapers piled up on the driveway. And I might leave a pizza flyer in your front door to see how long it takes you to remove it.”


“If decorative glass is part of your front entrance, don’t let your alarm company install the control pad where I can see if it’s set. That makes it too easy.”


“It’s raining, you’re fumbling with your umbrella, and you forget to lock your door-understandable. But understand this: I don’t take a day off because of bad weather.”


“A good security company alarms the window over the sink. And the windows on the second floor, which often access the master bedroom-and your jewelry.”


“I’ll break a window to get in, even if it makes a little noise.”


“Your alarm only works if it’s on. I’m not complaining, but why would you pay all that money for a fancy alarm system and leave your house without setting it.”


Aside from the obvious of locking doors and windows, protect your family by installing a quality security system and Griffin Communications can help.
