Why Theft Rates Rise Near Christmas

request a quote

Have you ever wondered what time of year theft rates are the highest? Wonder no longer. The time of year when the most theft occurs is around Christmastime. Let’s take a look at why theft rates rise near Christmas.

Causes

There are a number of things that cause this time of year to be great for theft. Here are some of them:

Popularity

While Christmas certainly isn’t the only holiday celebrated during the holiday season, it is the most popular. Because so many people celebrate Christmas, it’s easy to find houses to target. The extravagant light displays and the Christmas tree framed by the front window are all dead giveaways.

When you decorate so clearly for Christmas, it puts a target on your house. That isn’t a problem for people with quality alarms and security guarding their homes, but it certainly is for those who don’t. If you’re going to draw attention to your home this holiday season, be prepared. Engineered Alarm Solutions has a number of great ways you can keep your home safe from burglary.

Family Ties

Did you know that a large percentage of theft is committed by those closest to us? It’s true! Because it’s so easy to gain access to the belongings of relatives, family members are actually the most common cause of theft.

During the holidays, many of us invite family over to open gifts or spend time together. This is true for other winter holidays as well. That gives any family members with a knack for theft a great opening to take things from you. Plan ahead and put valuables somewhere they won’t be easy to find. And, no, that does not include in your dresser drawer. Locking expensive jewelry loose cash in a lock box or lockable desk drawer is a great way to keep it safe.

If you’re interested in protecting your home from theft over the holidays, you should invest in a home security system or home security camerasContact Engineered Alarm Solutions at (416) 697-7329 if you want your home to stand up against robbery.

Proper Security Is So Important For Peace Of Mind.

A Great Job! to the team at Engineered Alarm Solutions for the work performed at my home. From top management to the installers, the team delivered an efficient and professional service. The installers were on time, left the grounds spotless and provided all the support necessary to operate the system. Management provided recommendations that were spot on, and I very much appreciated the honesty and knowledge provided, can't get much better than that.

We are religious sisters and about two years ago we needed to protect our home because our neighbourhood is not very safe. We leave in a big house with too many windows and doors. The Priest from our Church recommended us to call Engineered Alarm Solutions Inc. (EAS) because they have done the security systems at the Church. We called EAS for an estimate. They came to check our home and explained to us all the options we had and provided an estimate. We also had other estimate from a different...

After moving into a new home, we needed a reliable security system to keep our family safe. We contacted Gabriel for a full alarm system, home automation, and security cameras. He met with us in person to ensure we understood the services and how everything worked. As an engineer by trade, Gabriel gave us comfort in his expertise and superior knowledge in the field. No sales pitch, just honest work and guidance on how to best protect our home. We now have a top of the line system, apps installed...

From initial contact until completed installation Engineered Alarm Solutions Incorporated were outstanding. I was provided with several options to choose from. A professional technician installed a new system in my home within 2 days of making the decision to upgrade my home security system. The service was prompt and the installation went ahead without issue. The price was very reasonable. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking to install a security system.

5 star review We used Gabriel and his team at Engineered Alarm Solutions to install the security cameras, access control, and smoke detectors at our new business location. His team was fast, professional and they delivered on everything that they promised in addition to providing good advice. We recommended him to another business a few units down from us who required an even more complex security system and have heard only good things since then. Would definitely recommend using their...

5 star review Several years ago, I hired Engineered Alarm Solutions Inc. (EAS) to install a Monitored Alarm System, Security Cameras, and Home Automation (Deadbolts, Thermostat, Lighting Control, etc.) in our new home. When we purchased the home, it came with a pre-existing security system that was frustrating to use, had recurrent false alarm issues, and we needed to find a new company to install a reliable and better quality system. Our experience with EAS was extremely positive and we have...
