Joe Jonas' security system thwarted a thief as he tried to break into the singer's home.

An intruder was captured on the home surveillance system at Joe's San Fernando Valley property in California on Thursday (08.02.18) at around 9pm, when the unidentified person was seen messing with the security cameras shortly before he triggered the alarm.

Joe's team received a notification of the alarm being triggered but the culprit - who did not manage to steal or damage anything - fled the scene before anyone had time to arrive, according to TMZ.

However, a trespass report has since been filed with the local police and they are reportedly investigating the incident.

Meanwhile, Joe - who is engaged to 'Game of Thrones' actress Sophie Turner - previously admitted he has been constantly adjusting and adapting to the pitfalls of fame and success throughout his life.

The 28-year-old singer and his brothers Nick and Kevin were given their own Disney show during their teens, but the DNCE star confessed that living his life under the spotlight is not something that's always come naturally to him.

He explained: ''I grew up around it, so it hasn't always been an easy thing for me, but you learn to adjust and adapt to how you're comfortable.

''Ultimately, there are things that you're going to be cool with and things that are going to be tough to get over.''

And the 'Cake By the Ocean' hitmaker admitted that he's always felt a pressure to behave like a role model to his young fans.

The dark-haired hunk said: ''Being a part of a company like that comes with certain expectations. Not overtly, but there was a subtle vibe.''

Joe is conscious that his celebrity status could easily disappear - and he thinks that realisation makes fame easier to cope with.

He reflected: ''At the end of the day, if you remember where you come from and how it can all go away so easily, it makes it a little bit easier to handle.''
