Powered Protection understands that the trauma caused by a burglary goes far beyond the monetary value of items stolen. Unfortunately, most people don’t think to prepare themselves for an invasion until it’s too late. If you’re unsure whether it is worth investing in a security system, you should first ask yourself how much you would have to spend to replace any stolen items.
In 2011, the average value of items taken in a burglary where the intruders actively stole valuables was about $2,120. In the studies and statistic done on local homes, the most common items of value that were stolen were items that are easy to grab and carry off with, things like:
$2,120 is a lot of money, but of course, that doesn’t account for the sentimental value of heirlooms, collectibles, and other items that aren’t easily replaceable – If you can replace it at all. The cash value of that antique necklace that’s been in the family for generations is probably just a fraction of how much it’s actually worth to you. No insurance check can replace the memories attached to a keepsake like that. These items are priceless, and so is the security of them.
It’s important to remember that security systems provide more than just protection for your valuables and heirlooms, they protect you and your family from home invaders just as well as they protect your laptop, jewelry, and other valuables. When thinking about preventative burglary systems, it’s important to think about what is at stake.
