Many ex-burglars who now educate law enforcement and security professionals about the criminal mindset advise professionals that the mere presence of a good home security system would deter them from entering a property to begin with, let alone attempt a crime in or on the property. So when asked, are home security systems in Jackson Hole effective? We need to ask how they’re effective. As a ‘system’, we expect it’s function to alert, inform, advise, and protect to be the first indicators that the system is effective. But what about the system’s effectiveness as a deterrent or means of crime prevention, just by simply being active and in place? In the statistical sense, home security systems are

  • primarily, effective at prevention,
  • second, effective in their physical function (in alerting and warning)
  • and third, effective when the human element is activated during alarm (i.e. police/fire dispatch, property owner acknowledgement).

That said, not only are home security systems effective; their mere existence, primary function, and the human response they illicit are just three basic areas of where effectiveness can clearly be measured and accounted. Where this is the case, it leaves to question how many times home security systems effectively save families and homes without activation, simply by just being in place.
