Motion Sensors

Be certain to read the entire contract when you hire a home security firm. Sometimes, hidden costs can be incurred if you get rid of the service before a certain date. Avoid nasty charges or fees regarding early termination, contract expiration and additional features or equipment.

TIP! Make sure your home’s exterior is well lit. It will be easier for intruders to keep an eye on you and approach your home if they can hide in the dark.

Use exterior lights that have motion sensors. The motion sensors turn on the lights whenever anyone approaches your home. Not only will you know that someone is out there, it will also deter burglars because they want to be inconspicuous. Don’t forget to replace the bulbs when they burn out.

Follow your instincts when choosing a home security company. If the installers give you the heebie-jeebies, it’s not a good sign. You don’t want to refrain from choosing a different company or technician. After all, the point of the system itself is to help you feel more at ease.

It might be time to get yourself a paper shredder if you haven’t already gotten one. You will be astonished at how burglars find important information from loose paper that they could use to break into your house. If you can’t get a paper shredder, try ripping papers into smaller pieces.

TIP! If you purchase a new, pricey electronic like a TV or computer, don’t leave the empty box near your curb. If the burglars see the empty boxes, then they will realize you have the items in your home.

Always lock your house, no matter how briefly you expect to be gone. Surprisingly, lots of burglaries occur because the burglar was able to simply walk in without having to actually break in. It won’t take long for thieves to steal lots of expensive valuables.

Inquire as to the different lengths of contracts offered by your security company. There are going to be ups and downs for each one. Your bill may be lower with a long-term contract, but you could wind up paying for a service you’re not using if you decide to move. A shorter contract gives you more freedom, but it may cost you more per month.
