Great Advice For Making Your Home Secure

Whether you are a homeowner or a renter, you want the place you live to be safe. You may not know how to secure your home, and that is why you should keep reading. Keep reading to find out how.

If your house has a garage, keep the car there, not just your junk. Protect your car from vandals by keeping it in the garage. If you keep your car in the garage instead of in the driveway, it is harder for thieves to know whether you are at home or not.

Sliding glass doors are a big security problem in many homes. They can be unlocked very easily if you shake and lift them. A pipe cut the right length should be wedged in the door if you have no security system. This will ensure the door stays tightly shut and it is difficult to force open.

TIP! A bright home is a safe home. Intruders will avoid being noticed.

While choosing your alarm system, ask about protection for windows and motion detection as well as doors. All windows can be entry spots for thieves. Make sure the alarm is attached to all of them, and that monitoring is offered for all possible entry points. This can keep your family much safer.

Look at home security companies that have more than just security systems. They should come to your house, check out what you need and offer you a custom solution. They could suggest better locks, trimming hedges back, or even replacing entire doors and windows. You need to make sure they truly care about your home’s security so that they can talk about these items with you personally if they actually do.

Be sure your home appears to always be occupied. You can purchase inexpensive timers that will control different electronics and lights in your home. This helps to create the illusion that someone is presently at home. This can be a terrific method of securing your home and keeping burglars at bay.

TIP! Many times folks have knocked on doors seeking assistance, only to kick in the door aggressively when the homeowner answers. If someone tells you they need help, offer to make a call for them while the door remains closed.

Keep curtains closed when you aren’t at home. Leaving the curtains up invites people to peer into your living room. You may have things inside that will tempt them to break into your house. Curtains and blinds should be drawn shut while you are asleep.

Put up video surveillance. Both hidden and visible security cameras are effective in protecting your home. Most intruders are discouraged by visible cameras. But, if they attempt to disable the camera, you will still be able to see them if you have a hidden camera. Some security systems are accessible via mobile phone, which lets you look in on your house when away.

If you come home and see your door ajar, never investigate it alone. The burglar may be on the premises. Call the cops and let them do the initial walk through.

If the living room window in your home is facing the street, you must keep the curtains closed. You want to avoid having people peek in the windows. If one happens to be a criminal, they have an instant visual of many valuable items in your home, making you an easy target. Lock everything up and shade your windows to stay discreet.

TIP! When moving into your new house, change every lock. You have no way of knowing whether the previous homeowner is trustworthy.

Keep your home’s rooms from being seen from the outside of the house. If you can see a big screen tv or computer from outside your home, a thief can see it too. Install blinds or drapes so people cannot see inside your home. If you can’t do that, don’t keep your valuables in the peripheral rooms of your home.

Buy roofing, flooring and interior paneling that is flame resistant. This will make your home more safe, especially if you are in a dry climate that has many power lines. Because of the amount of damage fires can cause, it is important to protect your home from them.

Eliminate dead vegetation and wood in the yard in the summer. These can pose a fire hazard due to heat and storms with lightning. You can prevent disasters by keeping your yard clean.

TIP! 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. There are some who believe country folk are more at risk because neighbors are not nearby.

You should only provide a house cleaner your key if you completely trust them. You need to ensure that they are honest and reputable according to references before you have handed over the key. Make sure you check references. If you are using a cleaning firm, make sure it has an excellent Better Business Bureau rating.
