According to a recent report by FBI Uniform Crime Reporting Statistics, there are roughly 2.5 million burglaries a year, 66% of those being home break-ins. Who is to blame?
The same report from FBI documents the ways break-ins happen.
95% of all home invasions require some sort of forceful entry, be that breaking a window, picking a lock, or kicking in a door.
The most common tools used for breaking in are pry bars, pliers, screwdrivers, and little hammers. All easily concealed and very common tools, making them harder to trace.
After reading these reports we can form an opinion that the traditional locks are failing us. But is there anything we can do? Apparently, there is a company that has addressed this issue and developed products that aim to keep your family and possessions safe from break-ins. The company goes by the name HAVEN and has products for both Residential and Commercial uses.
Stronger than a Deadbolt
So for those of you who do not know what a Deadbolt is here goes the definition, a lock bolt that is moved by turning a knob or key without the action of a spring. With such locks, no one can intrude into your home using just their physical strengths. But anyone can try a duplicate key or worse guess your password to get access to your home. But this is where HAVEN get its edge compared with traditional locks. HAVEN is 10x times stronger than a Deadbolt. Furthermore, HAVEN is tested to last for 25 years. It is installed on the floor inside your home. And once activated it is capable of withstanding amazing force. There are YouTube videos where the HAVEN team documents how their product works. I am giving the Video link below.
Here is a thought, HAVEN sits at the very bottom of your door. What does it tell us? This tells us that, the upper and roughly the entire door above HAVEN is unprotected. So if someone takes an Axe and decides to break-down the entire door instead of breaking down the lock, you will be in great trouble. Do let us know your take on this.
