A Burglary Occurs Every 15 Seconds While Homeowners Are Away

Austin, TX, April 22, 2014 - FBi statistics indicate that over 2 million home burglaries are committed annually in the US - all of them while the homeowners were away. While most of us lock our houses to try to prevent these crimes, the stats tell us that locks aren't the answer. The majority of these burglaries involve forcible entry through a locked door or window.

Burglars avoid homes that appear occupied. Police suggest that one of the best ways to make your home look occupied is to light your home like someone is home. Criminals keeping an eye on your house will notice lights flipping on and off, and will probably assume someone is doing the flipping.


The new Plum Lightpad automates lights and allows to easily set scenes that turn lights on and off to mimic the way a house looks when someone is home. The Plum Lightpad easily replaces current light switches and connects to a home's WiFi network allowing homeowners to control their lights from their smartphone when they are home or away. Homeowners that want to prevent their properties from being vandalized during their absence in trips or vacations, or that simply hate arriving to a dark house, should visit http://pressreleaseleader.com/pr/29696/1.html to learn more.
