Why should a home be concerned with setting up hightech security measures?

According to the Safe Wise report, as much as $12.4 billion worth of assets were stolen in 2015 in the United States only. That report further elaborates that one property crime occurs every 3.9 seconds. The recovery ratio of the property losses is less than 27% of the total losses.

Similarly, the FBI crime statistics for 2016 indicates that as much as $15.6 billion of worth property losses occurred due to property crimes in the USA. Another important aspect of the burglary statistics is that the majority of them take place in the daytime when people are away from their homes for work.
