Allconnect Statistics Shows October is Not the Scariest Month of the Year

ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–While October can be scary, home security interest peaks in December,
according to a new study by Allconnect, a national leader in connecting
consumers with essential home services.

Consumers spend an average of $13 billion on home security each year,
according to Fierce Cable. In contrast, they shell out $7 billion
for just one day of trick-or-treating according to the National Retail
Federation. South Dakota consumers are six times more likely to show
interest in home security vs. consumers in Florida who are the least
concerned. Charlotte, North Carolina, is the city most concerned with
security, while Fort Worth, Texas, is the least.

In terms of overall home services spending, security is the cheapest
bill at $38 a month, followed by phone ($41), Internet ($47), TV ($58),
and Double Play (2 or more items at $90). Consumers spend the most on
triple plays ($129), which combines TV, Internet and phone.

All data, with the exception of the annual spend on home security and
annual spend on Halloween are based on internal, proprietary Allconnect
2014-15 customer data.
