Intruders invariably try to enter through a door first. Burglary entry stats look like this:
- 34% of burglars enter through the front door
- 26% enter through a back or basement door
- 9% enter through the garage
- 61% of all burglaries, involve forcible entry
Almost three quarters of all burglaries start at the door. Intruders want an easy target – a fast way in and an easy way out. Door and Window Sensors detect the opening and closing of doors, windows, cabinets, drawers, or just about anything else that opens and closes. This is important because your alarm system can identify the precise point of intrusion, making it easier for the authorities to respond appropriately.
