According to a special report by the U.S. Department of Justice titled Seasonal Patterns in Criminal Victimization Trends, household property crimes are most likely to occur during the summer. The report finds that “Household burglary exhibited seasonal patterns, with rates of victimization typically highest in summer and lowest in winter or spring.” Specifically speaking, July and August are widely considered the “busy season” for burglaries, as it’s during this time of year that homeowners are typically away on vacation longest.

If you are going away this month, or if you have a summer home in Central Virginia that you’d like to protect, Woodfin Home Security can help. We offer five distinct levels of home security, several of which incorporate home automation so you can control and monitor your security system from anywhere using your smartphone.

  • Grand Guardian – Maximum Security / Maximum Automation
  • Prestige Protection – Maximum Security / Minimum Automation
  • Signature Shield – Maximum Security
  • Home Sentry – Minimum Expendable Security
  • Watchdog – Basic Minimum Security

August may be peak season for break-ins, but with a Woodfin Home Security package, you can rest easy knowing that your property is protected against would-be intruders. Contact Your Home Team today to ask about Woodfin Home Security.
