Home Security: Everything You Need To Know

Understanding the various facets of home security is an important focus for every homeowner. However, you will need to filter out the large amount of old and misinformation available on the web. Start with this article and go on from there.

Do you let your dog outside when you leave the house? You might consider leaving your spare key with your dog. Stash the key on the pup’s collar to keep it out of sight. This is very effective if your pet is afraid of strangers; therefore, burglars are not very likely to notice the key.

Don’t just hide your spare key anywhere. Above doors or under doormats are much too common to hide them and potential criminals will check them first. Try hiding your key somewhere more unique, like your outside dog’s collar.

TIP! Make your home look occupied at all times. Timers can be used to turn lights and televisions on and off when required.

You should never give details about your vacations and other plans on social networks. While you may want to shout it from the rooftops, you’re letting everyone know that your home will be vacant and easy to rob.

Before selecting a security firm, ask for recommendations. You can learn a lot from people who have already dealt with these companies. By asking around, you will gain information about the pros and cons of a variety of options.

Do not invite strangers into your home. Remember that intruders have a lot of experience with tricking people. This is the first rule of keeping your home secure.

TIP! Have your dog protect the spare key. Really this works only if you have a pet door or if your dog is an outdoor dog.

Try installing motion-sensor lights. These lights will come on if someone walks near your home. You will receive advance warning of any potential issues, and a would-be intruder will probably be scared off. But keep in mind that the bulbs to the security light should be routinely changed to ensure that the deterrent system functions properly.

Walls are a great hiding spot for your valuables. If you have small valuables you want to protect, consider hiding them inside your walls. Just access unused switch plates, outlets or phone jacks. Anything not used currently makes a good spot for hiding.

You could hide some valuables within your walls. You don’t have to cut out pieces of the wall to do this. There are many locales that are already around your home. An unused outlet can be taken apart, and the space used to create a tiny hidden safe.

TIP! You should always change the locks after purchasing a home. This is because you really have no idea who has keys, and therefore access to your home.

Spare Key

Don’t put your spare key in an obvious place near your front door. Instead of letting you into your home in the event you are locked out, you are providing criminals with easy access to your home. Thieves are aware of these hiding spots. Instead, have a trustworthy neighbor hold on to your spare key.

When you choose an alarm system, pick one that offers protection that goes beyond the doors. Your windows are also points of entry for burglars. Be certain they are also alarmed and monitored. This can keep your family much safer.

TIP! Get advice from your friends before selecting a provider for home security. Others have likely had both good and bad experiences that they can share with you that can then save you a lot of stress and time.

When moving into a house, ensure that each lock has been replaced. You don’t really know the people you purchased the house from or all the folks they shared keys with, so don’t place too much trust in the old locks. Besides, other tenants or owners might have copies of the key if the previous owners did not change the locks.

The wires that are on your house are very valuable. Most people are unaware of this fact until a burglar takes it from their house. The copper wiring can be stripped and be turned in for money. Make sure your wiring is hidden or hard to access to keep this valuable property safe.

Homeowners need to learn everything that they can when it comes to security. Still, since there is contradictory information out there, you may not be sure exactly what you need to do. Keep these tips handy, so you can refer back to them as you proceed to make your home more secure.

TIP! When you’re going away, turn off your phone ringers. If your phone is ringing while you are out, burglars will realize that no one is home, making your home very vulnerable to an attack during your time away.
