According to the Australian Institute of Criminology, on average, Australia has around 200,000 burglaries every year and according to the Crime Statistics Agency of Victoria, approximately 50,000 homes were broken into/burgled in the last 24 months with thefts at around 172,000 over the same period.
With new technological advances and new, increasingly clever ways of deciphering your movements, crime around the world has become more tech savvy, and devious. Criminals can on occasion slip away into anonymity. Time old measures like guard dogs and neighbourhood watches were once enough to keep a neighbourhood safe. However, the most automated behaviour can now give thieves and would be criminals the insight they need to successfully make away with your most prized possessions.
Many Australians are simply unaware that simple gestures like leaving for work like clockwork and buying a coffee at the same time every day can easily notify your would-be thieves of their window of opportunity and their viable get away route. Because of this, professionals in the security industry are now worth their weight in gold.
Every Australian is different. Every household, commercial or corporate property has different needs for security. Not many Australians are aware that certain security systems are admissible in state court. Some devices on the market are inferior simply because they are not connected to a call centre for immediate response, or lack encryption technology to protect the data which are now necessary according to the laws of evidence in Australia.
As a result, a growing market has emerged being serviced by trained security professionals, entrepreneurs and franchise brands that understand security systems and their application. According to Daniel Mifsud, a franchise manager at Jim’s Security, which has been rapidly expanding across Australia, “Consistency is a key to ensure technology and systems installed meet the requirements of all applicable standard. Products must be installed in the manner the manufacturer.” Apart from this, they need to be provided at a price that the average Australian can afford. According to Daniel, “Jim’s Security Franchisees are provided with state of the art systems in the security industry and because of the buying power of the group, we can provide an offering at an affordable price for both residential & commercial customers.”
Why have a Security System in Australia?
Australians who live in low crime areas with low burglary rates often come to the conclusion that they don’t need a security system in place. However, many are unaware that having a security system in place often result in large discounts from your insurance providers, despite the low crime rate and property values in the area. It is also important to remember that the best security systems out there are simply the ones that help the police to do their job, and catch the would be criminal before any harm or damage is done. When you think about it, your local police officers might find it hard to decipher your aged neighbour or your guard dog…
The police are most effective in their duties when security systems offer 3 vital things.
- 24/7 Encrypted video CCTV surveillance covering inside and out.
- 24/7 call support & response services
- Motion sensor lights covering all entries and exits to the property.
