Home Security Tips And Tricks You Need Today

Most people envision a difficult process with regards to installing home security. It is possible, however, to find a stress-free solution. The tips included below will help you secure your home without a lot of additional hassle.

A desirable home security system gives more than a normal security system can. For example, the best home security companies offer a home inspection to design your system and give you and your family excellent safety suggestions. This could include additional locks, removal of brush or new windows. If they truly offer you great advice, they’re worth hiring.

If you want to have a spare key close to your house in order to prevent lockouts, make sure you give its hiding place some careful thought. Under the doormat or above the door frame are all too common spaces that will be checked first by potential intruders. An example would be to attach a key to your dog’s collar, if he stays outdoors.

TIP! You should install some outdoor lights that use infrared detection. When a person approaches, the lights will come on.

When looking for a system to secure your home, do comparison shopping. Different companies can provide equivalent levels of service and security, but their prices can vary wildly. Try to get two or three quotes before making a decision.

Don’t give your keys to a house cleaner unless you totally trust them. If you do give your housekeeper a key or plan on doing so, it is imperative that they are honest and upstanding. It is best to do a reference check on them. If your cleaning person comes from a company, check with the BBB.

Understand certain safety precautions when it comes to having skylights for your home. Skylights are nice to bring extra light into your house, but they are also easy ways for burglars to enter your home. Any skylights in your home should be secured with strong hardware.

TIP! When you are away on vacation have a house sitter bring in your mail and any flyers and newspapers that accumulate in front of your house. Crafty burglars will leave fliers on homes, and check to see if they’re being removed as a means for determining whether or not the home is vacant.

Consider installing a surveillance system. Installing video cameras, both visible and hidden, are a great way to secure your home. Intruders can be deterred to visible cameras, but hidden cameras are better if criminals damage the other cameras. You can often view these feeds over the Internet, too.

Ask if your company offers options to both buy and lease your security equipment. While you will pay more to buy, you don’t have to keep paying for it month after month. Leasing is usually cheaper, but monthly fees can be high and you will need a contract. Find out which will work best for your needs.

If you possess a numeric keypad as a lock on your door, be sure not to make your birthday as your password. Your birthday is readily available for burglars to find. Use a random number instead.

TIP! You may think that the previous homeowners are extremely nice, but the truth is that you really do not know them. Therefore, replace all the locks in your home.

The walls are a perfect hiding place. You can hide small valuables inside the walls. You could use a phone jack, electrical outlet or a switch plate. Anything not used currently makes a good spot for hiding.

Are you aware of the value contained in your home’s wiring? Lots of people fail to appreciate this until they are hit by thieves. The copper in the wiring is valuable and can be stripped off of the outside of the home in a relevantly short period of time. That’s why it’s important to hide your wiring, or make it hard for criminals to have access to it.

Does your home have an alarm system? If so, it is important that potential burglars know you have one. A yard sign or window decal, as well as sound alarms, can be effective at preventing someone from breaking in. You don’t want their first indication to be the sound of the alarm after they have already broken down your door.

TIP! If you do not already have a paper shredder, you may want to think about investing in one. Thieves often look through garbage, trying to find credit card information or other important documents.

Rotted Wood

Rotted wood in your door framing should be replaced. Anyone who wants to get into your home can easily pry away rotted wood and slip right into your home. When you see that wood is beginning to rot, replace it with new wood for better home safety.

Can someone standing in the middle of the street see clearly your house numbers? If your numbers cannot be plainly seen, then the police will struggle to locate your home very quickly in case of emergency. Fortunately, it doesn’t require much to fix this problem.

TIP! Don’t hide keys in obvious areas. Rocks that aren’t real are easy to notice.

Some home security systems have additional security features besides sounding an alarm to deter a burglar. The majority of systems will give an audible alert when someone enters the house. This is important to parents who have small children, because they will want to know if the children have opened a door.

A home alarm investment is well worth the money, provided someone contacts 911 when it is set off. Purchase a centrally monitored alarm to reap all the security benefits possible. Don’t rely solely on your neighbors to notify the police.

You may want to get a security system that is wireless. Systems that are wired are cheaper, but they need unattractive wiring inside your home and may malfunction when you have a power outage. Wireless systems are much easier to install, and they can work independently of your home’s power.

TIP! Be sure to secure your attached garage. Lots of folks are concerned about burglars gaining access to the garage and then the home, but this can be addressed.

If you purchase pricey, new electronics, don’t place empty boxes on the curb. This will show that you have expensive equipment in your home. Break down the empty boxes whenever possible.

These tips should help you create a safe environment for your family. Start with a few tips you feel most comfortable with. Follow the tips presented here for a safe and secure home.

Deadbolts are the best locks you can install, as they have captive keylocks. They have a thumb latch ensuring that reaching through a window won’t unlock the door. When you are home, keep the key inserted inside the lock so you can leave if there is a fire.

TIP! Do you turn the lights on and off during the same time period? If so, consider a timer. This makes it easy for you because you do not have to turn the switch.
