Good Solid Advice About Home Security That Anyone Can Use

Every homeowner ought to know how to keep both their home and family secure. Burglaries are a common occurrence in homes. In addition, there are other issues that homeowners must deal with, including fire, flood, carbon monoxide, etc. The following article has some great information to help keep your home safe and secure.

Power Outage

Only allow maids and cleaning services to have a key to the house if they are known to be trustworthy. If you do give out a key to such individuals, be certain you know their reputation for honesty. Make sure you check references. If the person is an employee of a firm, call your local BBB to check their reputation.

TIP! Does your dog remain outside while you’re gone? She or he is actually a good place to keep the spare key. Attach your spare key inside the collar of your dog.

Consider purchasing a wireless security system for your home. Systems that are wired are cheaper, but they need unattractive wiring inside your home and may malfunction when you have a power outage. A wireless system is easy to install and to maintain. Besides, you will still be able to count on your wireless system in case of a power outage.

Shred any documents and junk mail that contains identifying information. A thief looking through your discarded papers can find a lot of information you do not want them to have. They may even learn your schedule, so they can burgle your home while you are away. If you can not afford to purchase a paper shredder, just rip the paper into smaller pieces.

The best home security systems do much more than sound the alarm (literally). Many can be set for sounding their alarm if anyone enters. This is important to parents who have small children, because they will want to know if the children have opened a door.

TIP! Look at the prices for all of the security systems that you are interested in. Some companies offer comparable levels of protection that can be priced very differently.

Arrange for someone to pick up your mail and remove any fliers from your door if you are out of town. Sometimes burglars leave fliers in an attempt to see if anyone is home to remove them. If the flier is not taken down, the burglar assumes the homeowner is not in town.

Install a home surveillance system. Setting up hidden and visible video cameras is a good way to keep your home secure. Visible cameras deter many intruders, but if they disable the cameras that they can see, your hidden camera can record the action. You can often view these feeds over the Internet, too.

Don’t just hide your spare key anywhere. Doormats and door frames are predictable places that burglars will always check. You should hide it in your dog’s collar.

TIP! Be sure your roof, floors, and ceiling are fire resistant. This can provide additional safety to the home, particularly in dry regions.

The best method to maintain a thief from going into the garage is making sure nobody can see inside. Frosted windows prevent thieves from looking into your home and are inexpensive. Make a habit of keep your door closed and locked.

During the summer, remove all vegetation and dead wood from your yard. These are vulnerable to fires and put your home in danger. Keeping your plants and bushes trimmed will benefit your family’s safety as well as the appearance of your home.

TIP! Is your door made of solid wood or metal? If not, then replace it. Doors made of metal or wood are much sturdier than those that aren’t.

Garage Door

If you have an attached garage, don’t forget to secure it as well. Intruders can enter your home through an unlocked garage door. A C-clamp placed on the garage door track will stop it from opening when you don’t want it to.

Find out if you can get motion sensitive lighting from your security company. Most companies will provide customers with this luxury. When anyone gets too close to the entry way, the lights turn on. This will ward off thieves and make you feel safe when you come home.

TIP! Having a burglar alarm is really good, but it is only good if the police is alerted when it sets off. The smart thing to do is to get an alarm that is centrally monitored.

Be sure your home always looks occupied. You could purchase timers which make lights and TV’s, as well as other devices, power on or off at varying intervals. This way, your house will always look occupied. That means burglars will pass right by.

Man’s best friend can also be trusted to secure a spare key. Of course, your dog has to be an outdoor dog (or you at least need to have a doggy door) for this to work. Put a key on the dog’s collar so you have access to it when necessary!

Common security problems in homes include sliding glass doors. They can be simply unlocked with a lift and a shake. If your doors are not equipped with a security system, grab a pipe and cut it so that it fits the channel of the door. This keeps your door closed tightly and it will make it much harder to open forcibly.

TIP! Always lock the windows in your home, no matter what floor they are on. Many folks forget about these, thinking ignorantly that burglars don’t check.

Change all of your locks when you move in. You cannot be sure of the number of key copies that the former owner gave out. To make sure you’re the only person that can get into your home, contact a locksmith. You should also do this if your keys ever get lost.
