    It appears Toorak is just outside the top 10 with 1 in 43 homes.

    My suburb was 1 in 107 so appears we are safe...for now.

    Worked in the home security industry for a while and it really opened my eyes to how easy it is for burglars. People will spend $70+/m to watch FOXTEL on their $2k TV but insist that $8/wk for a back to base alarm and 24/7 monitoring is "too much" o_O Even after being robbed 6 times in 2 years one guy refused to install any security!

    Unlocked doors and windows are still the main entry points.

    Graph is from 6 years ago but times and days are pretty much the same. Possibly the same for Melb too.

    What is a back to base alarm?
    24/7 monitoring is not about money for me - it's about privacy

    Interesting. So burglary more likely to happen before noon? I thought they are more likely to happen on midnight

    People work during the day and run errands then. Midnight you are more likely to walk in on someone sleeping.

    Not that I am a criminal <.< >.>

    @AlexH - good to see that most burglars take the weekend off ;)

    Back to base alarm is an alarm which has doalling capability - it calls the security company if the alarm is triggered. They call you for instructions eg - send patrol, doh falsies etc

    Pretty much what Scott said. It's just a more active way of securing your home.

    Full privacy, they don't view your cameras or anything but simply let you know when an alarm has been triggered so you can decide what to do within minutes.

    I always recommend B2B and motion detecting cameras with off site recording, well worth the $'s.
