DO YOU WORRY ABOUT THE SECURITY OF YOUR HOME? preformed a recent study, revealing that two-thirds of all homeowners worry about home security and crime at least once a month. 42% experience worries once a week or more, while 16% worry about security every day.


Do you share home security duties with your partner, like 22% of respondents, or do you consider yourself the "Chief Security Officer" (present in 68% of homes)? And what precautions do you take to protect your home from crime?

Some eye opening numbers from their study show:

  • 52% of homeowners check that their doors and windows are locked at bedtime.

  • 39% make sure that their drapes or blinds are closed at night.

  • 35% leave outdoor lights on at night.

  • 22% leave indoor lights on at night.

  • 24% check inside their closet before going to bed.

  • 18% still check under the bed.



When was the last time you left your home vulnerable to an opportunistic intruder?
We asked: which of these security mistakes have you made in the last 12 months?

  • 35% of homeowners have left doors open or unlocked.

  • 29% have left windows open or unlocked.

  • 29% have left the garage open.

  • 25% have forgotten to turn their alarm on.

  • 20% have lost their door keys.

These seem like simple mistakes to make, but they can be costly. The good news is that many of these mistakes are easily preventable. If you lead a busy life, you should look into a smart security system, professionally installed by American Defense Systems. Never lose a spare key again (because you will stop giving them out!). Now you can simply give out access codes to a smart lock and your panel. Life gets easier when your home gets smarter, and you won’t be worrying so much!



Ever got halfway to work and had the feeling that you didn't lock your door? You're not the only one. The morning commute sees increased security concerns, especially once the rush to get out of the house has passed. It's not the only "prime time" for worries, however. So when are homeowners more likely to worry more about home security?

  • 50% of homeowners worry more when they travel.

  • 31% worry more when they're home alone.

  • 31% worry more when family members are home alone.

  • 31% worry more when they leave home for work.
