As demand for home security increases in Australia, franchise operators have stepped in to service increasing public concerns about home safety..
Most Australians are relatively relaxed when it comes to security at home, but with an estimated 200,000 break-ins a year we are long overdue for a change in thinking. A survey conducted by Crime Stoppers found staggering results into our home security or lack thereof. A whopping 40% of Australians have had their homes broken into.
Australia was recorded in 2016 as having a 43.8% crime rate with a 56.88% rate in public safety, placing Australia significantly behind New Zealand, according to the Numbeo global crime index. According to an article by ILA Security Australia (2016), the need for increased home security has extended far beyond ‘blue-chip’ residential areas where luxury cars, jewellery, artworks, and other high-priced valuables are typically stored. Today, any home in any average suburb town could be targeted for burglary and car theft via home invasion involving acts of violence or threat and trauma to residents and their families.
These are increasingly likely incidents as reported in the Age on 15 July 2016, when a father of two, locked his wife and children in the bathroom and “pleaded with the burglars not to harm his family” when intruders were found to have entered the home at 3am, while the family had been sleeping.
