You might know someone that has been a victim of a home invasion. Home invasions continue to go up, which means that diligence is the key for home security. Homes can be broken into anywhere, at any time. The information below will help you prevent this from happening in the future.
Don’t just hide your spare key anywhere. Never put a spare key under a doormat or above a door jam. Rather, think about putting a key on your outside dog’s collar.
The materials of your home should be fire resistant. This will add an extra protection layer for your house, particularly if you live near power lines or in a dry location. Fire is such a destructive force that it makes excellent sense to reduce fire hazards in your home whenever possible.
Social networking sites are great for keeping in touch, but post information sparingly. For example, you might avoid broadcasting when you are going out of town, especially if your friends list contains casual acquaintances. It’s exciting going to new places and enjoying your time, but you could alert thieves to an empty home that they can easily break into.
It is always best to not let people in that just show up out of the blue. Even if someone has a good story, requires help or has a great product to sell, ignore them. Some people want to enter your home just to see if there is a security system in place. They may be scoping the place to come back when you’re gone.
Home protection program details may be available at your police station. They may offer neighborhood watch programs, home inspections, engraving tools for marking code numbers onto items so that they will be easily identified if stolen. Call the local police department and inquire as to what programs they offer.
If you have a garage, increase your home security by using it to house your car, rather than just for storage. Keeping your car secured will prevent people from vandalizing it. Hiding the car from plain sight can keep possible intruders from figuring out when you’re home and also when you are not.
Even if you’re not going to be gone long, keep your home locked. It might shock you to learn that most break-ins occur due to unlocked doors. It does not take long for thieves to steal your expensive stuff.
Before allowing anyone into your home, check their references carefully. Run a criminal background check on them, as well. Anyone you bring into your home to work could be your worst enemy.
Keep safety in mind when doing landscaping. The doors and windows of your home should not be obstructed by trees, fences or shrubs. This way, no one can hide there if they are attempting to break into your house. Plan these features for further away from your home.
Light up your home’s exterior. Burglars love to operate in the dark. Be sure and have a light next to any entry point in your home. This includes doorways, windows, and your garage.
If you haven’t gotten a paper shredder, it may be time to purchase one. Thieves can use this information to figure out your schedule and determine the best time to break in. Rip important documents in small pieces before throwing them away if you do not have a paper shredder.
A dog is an excellent burglary deterrent system. Man’s best friend is very territorial and makes a lot of noise during anything happening out of the ordinary. You will get good results even if you do not have a large or vicious dog. Small dogs also help, because intruders don’t want people to notice the barking.
Do not think that expensive homes are the only targets for burglars. If your home looks vulnerable, it’s a target. Follow the advice below to make sure your house and family are safe and secure.
It’s important to add a security camera systems to your home or business. This surveillance system allows you to install up to 8 wired cameras to digitally record all activity. This DVR has full networking capability and uses an embedded DVR which allows you to view live video on the Internet or play back recorded video.
