Home Security: Tips To Keep You Safe

Do you know anything about home security? If you’re lost just pondering this subject, you need some facts. Home security is too important to ignore. You’ll find that a little self-education will prepare you to make much better security decisions. Check out the suggestions below and start improving your security savvy!

Do not give the key to your home to your cleaning person unless you are certain they are worthy of your trust. You need to ensure that they are honest and reputable according to references before you have handed over the key. Check the housekeeper’s references very carefully. If the house cleaner is employed by a company, check with the BBB of your area to determine their reputation.

Do not post on your social media accounts regarding when you will be away on vacation. Although you may want to let others in on your excitement, it may inadvertently give burglars a heads up to target your property.

TIP! Your home should looked occupied all the time. You can buy timers to have radios, TVs, lights and other electronics go off and on at different times.

Turn off your phone’s ringer when you go on vacation. A phone which rings forever is a sign to burglars that you’re not there.

If you own a garage, be sure to use it to place your car, as opposed to using it as a storage. Keeping your car in your house will deter intruders from vandalizing or stealing it. When it is in hiding, people won’t know if you’re home.

Any program to improve the security of your home should begin with complete replacement of your door locks. Has a roommate or ex-lover moved out recently? If so, then you need to change out the locks in order to keep you and your home safe. This is a very easy process that you can complete within a day.

TIP! Look at the prices for all of the security systems that you are interested in. Every company offers different pricing.

Walls can serve as a handy hiding place. If you own small valuables that require protection, try hiding them in the walls. Use an old switch plate, outlet or phone jack. Anything not used currently makes a good spot for hiding.

Be cognizant of what others can see when they look in your windows. Large windows let in a lot of light, but they also allow outsiders to see inside your living space. You always want to make sure you keep your valuables covered if they are by a window.

After bringing home a big-ticket item, such as an appliance or electronic device, avoid leaving the packages on the curb before trash day. Doing so is like giving a burglar an invitation to target your home; he or she will know there is something good inside.

TIP! If your social networking accounts are filled with folks you do not really know, do not announce vacations on the sites. 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.

Replace rotten wood on your door frame. Rotted wood can be easily removed by thieves. Always replace rotting wood with fresh wood immediately to keep your house strong and secure.

If you are moving into a new home, change the locks right away. Even if the tenants turned their keys in, they may have made copies. You might even install new locks yourself so that you know you have the only keys.

Motion sensitive lights are an inexpensive way to increase your home’s security. At night, the lights will keep things bright round the house, but they are also efficient and cost-effective ways to help your security. If placed strategically around the house, motion detectors can make it very tough for criminals to get to your property.

TIP! If you’re going on a trip for an extended period of time, switch the ringer off on all home phones. A constantly ringing phone can signal to a burglar that the house is vacant, making it an easy target for their criminal activities.

Inquire with your home security service as to how long they’ve been in business. A reliable home security company is one that has a long history in the community and can offer references from satisfied customers. You’ll find it a lot easier to put your faith in the professionals if you take the time to verify their trustworthiness.

If you come to your home and discover that your door has been left open, avoid investigating by yourself. This can be dangerous since the intruder might still be on the property. Just contact the police and sit tight until they arrive.

Expensive Items

TIP! Remember to have an annual inspection of your home security system. Ask someone from your security company to come over and have a look.

Never place empty boxes for expensive items out on the curb. This will just alert criminals to the fact that you have expensive items in your home. Cut up the boxes when they’re empty.
