Description

“People are far more likely to think they live in an area with a low risk of break-ins than an area of high risk. This creates a sense of false security or even complacency about home security. We see that people’s ownership of home security products is much higher after they have experienced a security incident such as a break-in or a fire, indicating that when awareness rises people will take action to make improvements. So marketing needs to highlight the consequences of bad things happening, before showing the way to a safer, more secure future.”

– Jane Westgarth, Senior Market Analyst
