Protecting your home against burglary and your own fears
42 % of homes in Paris are protected by reinforced doors, burglar-proof glazing or three-point locks. In one in two cases, these features are accompanied by another form of protection: watchmen, digital keypads and dogs. The type of dwelling and degree of urbanisation are obviously determining factors. Five times more houses than flats are equipped with alarms and 96 % of Parisian dwellings are protected by a digital keypad. While the effectiveness of these security systems is not always proven, except in the case of a watchman, it is no less true that they provide reassurance to the occupants of the dwelling.
