The simple answer to this is yes, it makes a huge difference. The reason for this is that most crime across Perth is an opportunistic crime, where criminals see an easy opportunity to take something that isn’t theirs for their own benefit.
Now having an alarm system in your property will not give you 100% protection against burglary but it will certainly reduce the incidence of burglary several-fold. When there is a street full of homes that have security alarm systems, you can be assured that persons of criminal persuasion would rather leave your street and find an alternative one to look for easy opportunities.
The second thing a security alarm system does is that it reduces the amount of time that a burglar will spend in your home looking for items if your house is broken into. When there is no alarm system, there is no pressure for a burglar to leave the property so they can look more thoroughly through drawers and throughout your house to find saleable items. Of course, an alarm system may not prevent the smash and grab type break-in, leaving valuable items out of sight is the best prevention for this type of theft.
