The rise of Australian break-ins, what you can do to help prevent them?

In a world where home security is a top priority, innovative solutions are continuously emerging to protect our homes and loved ones. With burglary rates on the rise, Australians are increasingly looking for reliable and effective ways to secure their residences.

Current Home Security Landscape:

Recent statistics reveal a concerning trend of rising break-in incidents across Australia. The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) estimates that 2 per cent of Australian households — or 194,100 homes — experienced a break-in during the last financial year. That's an increase from 1.7 per cent in the 2020-21 financial year, which was the lowest recorded rate. It was estimated that 171,600 households had been broken into across the nation. Despite the fact that 96.8% of Australians have not experienced a break-in or an attempted break-in within the last 12 months, burglary rates are climbing steadily, highlighting the need for proactive security measures. The consequences of break-ins extend beyond mere material loss, often leaving families feeling vulnerable and violated in their own homes.

Traditional Security Measures:

Historically, Australians have relied on traditional security measures such as deadlocks, security screens, floodlights, and security systems to safeguard their homes. While these methods have been effective to some extent, the evolving tactics of intruders call for innovative solutions that can provide comprehensive protection.
