Concerned About Home Security? Take These Tips To Heart

Home security is a very important topic to all, but it is something that people do not truly understand. To properly protect your items and home, you need to study home security. Keep reading for some great tips.

Have your dog protect the spare key. Outdoor dogs or pet doors make this possible. Simply attach a spare key to your dog’s collar (in a secure and non-visible place, of course) so that you’ll be able to retrieve it if you need it.

Valuable Items

TIP! When you buy a new house, change the locks. You don’t know the exact number of copies of that key the previous owners have or have handed out.

Purchase a safe to lock all of the extremely valuable items in your home in one place. This will keep your stash of diamonds, gold and other valuable items out of view and inaccessible to burglars. Your safe should be placed somewhere it is not readily noticeable.

Check around for prices, reputation, and reliability when choosing a home security provider. Prices can be very different from one product to another. Make sure to obtain quotes from a minimum of three companies prior to deciding on a final one.

Rid the outside of your home from dead wood, vegetation and overgrowth during the summertime. As the summer heat rolls in, there is a higher chance that these can catch on fire, putting your home at risk. Clear your yard often if you want to prevent a fire from starting.

TIP! Hide your spare key in a place where no one would think to look for it. It is very common for homeowners to hide them under a mat or above the framing of their door, and intruders know this.

Switch your locks. Changing the locks will ensure that you are the only one who knows the combination. It’s generally cheap can can take less than a day to do.

If you reside in a small town or rural area, then you might not be as worried about someone breaking into your home as city dwellers may be. Others think that living in the country is more risky than other areas because houses are so far apart. Others think that rural places have less of a chance of being targets for burglars.

Don’t ever place your spare key under your mat or next you a plant box. While it can help you if you’re locked out, you could be letting intruders inside your home. Burglars are well aware of these hiding places. Rather, give the key to a neighbor to hold.

TIP! You should invest in fire-resistant roofing, flooring and ceiling. This will help ensure the safety of your home, particularly if your home is located in a dry area.

Be sure your valuables are not visible from the outside of your house. It may be great to have large windows with a view, but this means that people can look in. Keep your windows covered and your belongings private.

It is important that your alarm system wiring is not exposed anywhere. Exposed wires make it easy for an intruder to cut them and disable the alarm. To provide maximum security, wiring should be laid underground or installed safely within the walls of your house. You’ll be safer.

Remove and replace any wood that is not up to par. It is simple for a robber to pry away rotting wood and enter your home. Replace dead wood with thick, firm pieces to maintain a high level of security.

TIP! Before selecting a security firm, ask for recommendations. You can learn a lot from people who have already dealt with these companies.

Carefully check the references of everyone before allowing them to enter your home. You need to do background checks in order to find out about their criminal history. There is no way of knowing whether or not service people are honest, so you should not give them keys to your home.

The Internet is great for searching for home security companies, so use it to your advantage. You should look at testimonials from customers and different information you can find. From there, you can make appointments with your top three selections to compare final package pricing and specific details about plans and monitoring.

Think about safety when designing your home. Don’t provide burglars with cover by planting big shrubs in front of your doors and windows. If they can be seen, there will be no place to hide. If you want to have a garden around your home, keep trees and shrubs away from your house.

TIP! The first step in making your home more secure is to change out your locks. Maybe you had a roommate move out or have a disgruntled ex-lover, changing the locks is the best way to keep yourself safe.

Most people know that home security is an important part of life. Many don’t know how to go about protecting their homes. Hopefully, this article can be a great resource on how to secure your home 24 hours a day.
