Video is Burglar’s Kryptonite

“Makers of movies and TV shows have it all wrong”, says Walter T. Shaw, retired from the most infamous burglary ring in America. Rarely do thieves wear president-look alike masks, pantyhose or any face coverings at all to pull a job.  Many times, they don’t even wear gloves.

“Thieves are arrogant; they don’t think they’ll be caught. And they’re not the least bit worried that a neighbor will be able to get a good enough look to give a description to the cops,” Shaw says.

However, Shaw shares their Achilles’ heel:  “They don’t have the time — or in many cases the talent — to disable surveillance systems. And they don’t want video surveillance of them rummaging through your home winding up in the cops’ hands or worse, on the evening news for their own neighbor to finger them.”

Video monitoring is a crook’s kryptonite, so make sure you protect your home and business using video. Shaw says burglars don’t know where the video is being recorded, since many video solutions today offer secure, cloud-based recording (with no recorder in the home or business to destroy) they’re likely to pass right on by. The footage could be captured offsite, so the moment they enter the home, it’s too late. They’ve been caught on candid camera,” Shaw says. Check out these Criminals Guilty of Being Dumb.

What Burglars Look For & How to Deter Them

Burglars are increasingly using social media outlets to isolate and track potential victims. A recent survey of some ex-burglars shed some light on what they look for and what deters them. Here are the five most common mistakes homeowners make, according to ex-burglars:

  • Leaving windows open
  • Leaving valuables in plain sight to passersby
  • Posting whereabouts on social media sites
  • Hiding keys near the front door
  • Leaving postal deliveries out

In the same survey, ex-burglars reveal it only takes 2 minutes to break into a home with no visible alarm system and 78% say that an alarm system would make them target a different home entirely.
