Steps to take if your home is broken into

By Nick on November 11, 2015

One of the most frightening and violating experiences is having your home broken into.

According to the FBI 2014 Crime Report, there were 1,729,806 reported burglaries in the U.S. A mere 13.6% of these burglaries resulted in arrests!

Ring Video Doorbell acts as your second set of eyes and ears. You can scare away a potential burglar by using the two-way talk feature and capture valuable footage of the person who is attempting to break into your home.

Whether you’re home or away, Ring Video Doorbell can monitor any approaching threat to your home. You’ll be able to catch anyone attempting to break into your home (via Motion Alerts) and store that specific Cloud Video Recording to turn in as evidence.

Steps to take if your home is broken into:

1. Do not touch anything in your home.

2. Immediately call the police, if they haven’t already been alerted. Remain outside your home so you don’t risk the chance of destroying any evidence.

3. File a claim with your homeowner’s or renter’s insurance within 24 hours of the incident.

4. If you have any footage, like Ring, review and share them with both law enforcements and insurance company as documented proof.

With Ring, you have peace of mind knowing that no matter what happens, you’re already one step ahead of preventing break-ins before they happen.
