Knowing the importance of a security system can save your life and the lives of those you love. In a study by Rutgers University, researchers analyzed crime data provided by the Newark Police Department. "Data showed that a steady decrease in burglaries in Newark between 2001 and 2005 coincided with an increase in the number of registered home burglar alarms" (Dr. Seungmug Lee). This study credited the alarms with the decrease in burglaries and the city's overall crime rate. Also, based on interviews with burglars, most burglars want to avoid alarms altogether and, upon encountering an alarm system, the burglar abandons all thoughts of attempting to enter the premises.
