Home Security Franchises on the Rise

asked about 5 years ago

With over 2.5 million burglaries reported in the U.S. each year, it’s easy to see why home security franchises, like Shield, are becoming increasingly popular.

Protecting your home, family and personal possessions is becoming more and more of an issue for many Americans. When, traditionally, home security used to be a luxury considered by the wealthy, security alarms and monitoring is increasingly becoming the norm for many home owners.

Alarming Home Security Statistics

Looking at statistics in relation to burglary across the country, one home is burglarized every 13 seconds. That’s more than 2.5 million burglaries reported each year. According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), more than 60 percent of these involve forcible entry.

The highest percentage of these burglaries occur during the summer months and about 65 percent happen during the day, when household members are likely to be at work or home alone.

Derek Cafferata, CEO of All State Franchise Finders is aware of the strong growth of the home security industry. “Only about 17 percent of homes in the U.S. have a security system,” said Derek. “When you consider that homes without any form of security system are around 300 times more likely to be broken into, it’s easy to understand why more and more people are considering franchising into the home security industry.”

About $4.7 billion was lost last year through burglaries across the country. One sad statistic is that in 2014 just over 13 percent of these reported break-ins resulted in an arrest.

Shield Security Systems

For these reasons, many people are discovering that home security monitoring systems are a logical step to protecting their home and their loved ones.

Market leaders in the home security industry, Shield Security Systems are quickly gaining more and more customers who realize the value in, not just catching perpetrators once they have broken into their home, but actually deterring and detecting them before they even gain entry to the property.

According to Derek, he and his company are finding that more and more people are heading into this industry.

“A franchise like Shield Security Systems offers exciting growth prospects, a solid and experienced business framework and a company with a longstanding and highly respected reputation,” said Derek.

Founded in 1976, Shield Security Systems have been franchising for the past 24 years. The initial investment costs range from approximately $75,000 up to around $125,000. With Shield, new franchisees are offered all the training, support and hardware needed to quickly and effectively set up a new Shield franchise location.
