Home Security: Do’s, Don’ts, Musts And Other Advice

The business of home security is booming. Burglaries occur in every neighborhood. Thieves will target any houses that seem less secure than the others. If you want to avoid becoming a victim, the following tips will help you amp up your home security.

When you buy a new home, be sure to have the locks changed. There is no telling how many key copies were made and given out by a previous owner. Call a locksmith to make sure you’re the only one with access to your home. You should also do this if your keys ever get lost.

Is your garage used for storage? Consider removing those items and keeping your car there instead. It will be far more secure against thieves. Keep the car within the garage will make sure no one harms or steals it. Hiding the car from plain sight can keep possible intruders from figuring out when you’re home and also when you are not.

TIP! Change all of your locks when you move in. You have no clue how many people were given keys by the former owner.

Have lights that are motion-sensor installed. They will illuminate your property if they sense any movement near your home. They help notify you of any movement around your house and deter burglars too. Get in the habit of checking and replacing the bulbs as necessary to ensure the lights remain effective.

Walls make the perfect hiding spot. If you have valuables that are small in size, you may want to hide them within your walls. All you have to do is place them behind any unused phone jack, electrical outlet or switch plate. If you have no unused plates, you can easily install false ones.

You can hide your valuable items inside your walls. You don’t have to cut pieces out of the walls. Many spots are already cut that can be used for this purpose. An unused outlet can be taken apart, and the space used to create a tiny hidden safe.

TIP! Do not give the key to your home to your cleaning person unless you are certain they are worthy of your trust. If you do give your housekeeper a key or plan on doing so, it is imperative that they are honest and upstanding.

Keep valuables out of sight of windows. Large windows allow you to keep an eye on who is approaching your home, but keep in mind that potential intruders will be tempted if they can see your valuables. Keep your windows covered and your belongings private.

No matter how soon you plan to return home, you should lock your doors. Break-ins are often the result of unlocked windows and doors. Thieves can steal a lot of valuable stuff in mere minutes.

Whenever you move to a new dwelling, make certain to get each lock replaced. As nice as the previous person may seem, you don’t really know them. Aside from that, other people lived in the home even before the ones from whom you purchased the home.

TIP! If you have a stranger at your door, do not open it. Nowadays, thieves are creative when thinking of ways to get homeowners to open a door and let them in.

Rotten Wood

Replace rotten wood on your door frame. Rotten wood can be removed in order to get inside your home. Replace this old wood if you want to keep your house safe.

Any time you let a stranger into your home that is doing some kind of work, it is best to ask for references. A background check is also a good idea, so that you know what their criminal history looks like. You can never be certain if the contractor, repairman, maid, etc. that you hire to do services in your home is honest. If you let these people in without knowing anything about them, you could experience significant losses.

TIP! Have lights that sense motion. These lights will turn on if anyone walks too closely to your home.

Having light on in your home at night will scare crooks away. They don’t want visibility. A well-lit home will make it hard for intruders to hide and take your valuables without being detected. Keep the lights on if you want your home to be secure.

Before signing up for home security, find out how long they’ve been in business. Many years of service bode well for the company’s performance. You’ll have a lot more confidence in your choice if you stick with a company that has a proven track record.

Home security is vital for both your safety and the safety of your family. Home intrusions can happen at any time. Remember these tips and create a home security system. Wait no longer. Make sure you do something about it before something happens!

TIP! Keep valuables hidden within the walls. You needn’t tear down your walls to do this.
