Home Security 101: Simple Changes You Can Make Today

If you keep items of great value at home, you should realize that people may notice. A good home security system is the best way to protect yourself from thefts. Go over this article to find out how you can keep your home safe.

Does your dog stay outside while you are gone? Your dog is an excellent place to hide your spare key. Put the key on the dog’s collar. This is quite effective if your pet does not respond well to strangers.

Before selecting a security firm, ask for recommendations. Other people are sure to have opinions and experiences to share. Make sure to ask neighbors for advice too.

TIP! When looking for a system to secure your home, do comparison shopping. Prices vary greatly in regards to the same protection for each company.

Don’t open up your door for someone who is a stranger. There are many different tactics that crooks use to enter homes, and a common way is simply to walk up to the door and ask for help. Only open the door for people you are expecting.

In the summer, remove vegetation and dead wood from your yard. These could catch on fire during the summer, especially if you live in a dry area. Keep your yard clear so it is a safe area.

Be sure to keep your car in your garage rather than filling your garage with stored belongings. In this way, your car will be safer. This will keep thieves from stealing it or harming it. Storing your car in the garage will also make it difficult for anyone casing your home to figure out when no one is going to be there.

TIP! Don’t let everyone in your social network know that you are leaving the home unprotected for your vacation trip; especially the people who you aren’t familiar with. It’s natural to be excited about your trip, but this is as good as throwing out the welcome mat for people who know your home is unoccupied.

Annual check-ups are important for alarm systems. Get a professional in to check it out. Many factors cause issues with security systems like nature and wild animals. Sometimes, you may need a professional to locate the problem.

Always change the locks if you have someone move out of your home. Anyone from an old roommate to a former tenant could have access to your home if you leave the old locks in place. It is pretty cheap and the job won’t take more than a few hours.

Always go with your gut when it comes to choosing a security firm. If you don’t feel comfortable with the technician, don’t allow them access to your home. Don’t hesitate to request a different technician or to hire a new company altogether. Security is supposed to give you peace of mind after all!

TIP! Talk to people you know about their security systems. This will help you to reduce the stress that you have on your search for a good one.

A secure hiding place can be created in a wall. You should think about hiding certain small valuables within your walls. Repurpose phone jacks and electrical outlets as tiny wall safes. If you do not have any unused plates, it is easy to install a false one.

When selecting a home alarm system, choose one that protects many areas of your home, not just the doors. Each window represents a possible entry for your thief. Therefore, ensure the windows have an attached alarm. All potential entry points should have an alarm. This will make your family safer.

If you have a home security system installed, make sure the wires are hidden. You don’t want a burglar to get access to them and disable your system. To provide maximum security, wiring should be laid underground or installed safely within the walls of your house. This makes it much less likely that your system will be compromised.

TIP! Turn the ringers off on all your phones if you will be away for a prolonged period of time. A loud ring that goes unanswered can alert people to the fact that you aren’t home.

If you are throwing away the box an expensive item came in, wait until trash day to put the box out. If you set these boxes out with the trash, thieves will know you have expensive items in your house.

Taking steps to improve your home’s security is a much better plan than optimistically hoping it’ll never attract criminal attention. Don’t live in fear all the time, but try taking precautionary steps. Keep these tips in mind as you get to work.
