Home Security Tips You Really Need To Know

Knowing how to keep your home safe is best done with a good understanding of the options open to you. You do not want to take this decision lightly. Think long and hard about creating a safe home for your family.

Protect your spare key by using your dog. This really only works if you’ve got an outdoor dog or if you’ve got a pet door. Store a spare key within your dogs collar so you always have access to your home.

Keep your car in your garage. Keeping your car in your house will deter intruders from vandalizing or stealing it. Hiding your car from plain view will also keep potential intruders from tracking when you are home and when you aren’t.

TIP! Always have the locks changed when you buy a new home. You don’t know who might have a key.

Go with your gut when you invite a home security company representative into your house. This goes for the installer, too. There is nothing wrong with asking for a different technician if you’re uneasy. The system and the company should put your mind at ease.

Don’t put extra keys under doormats or in planters. Though you may think you are giving yourself a way into your home if you lose your key, you are actually inadvertently inviting intruders into your home. Thieves are aware of all these spots. The wisest course of action is to leave a spare key with a trusted friend or a reliable neighbor.

You never want people to be able to see your valuables from outside of your home. 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.

TIP! Make sure your attached garage is secure. Many people are concerned about people entering their garages to gain access to their homes.

Always lock your home when you leave it, no matter how soon you plan to return. This is often a surprise, but the majority of burglaries are due to someone just waltzing right into an unlocked home. Thieves can steal a lot of valuable stuff in mere minutes.

If you bought any big or expensive things, wait until trash day to throw away the boxes. If you set these boxes out with the trash, thieves will know you have expensive items in your house.

Hidden Fees

TIP! Talk to the police department in your area to see what safety programs they have. Some police departments offer things like code numbers to help find your valuables should they get stolen.

If you’re going to hire a company that provides home security, read everything in the contract before you sign it. There may be some hidden fees, or a need to buy more equipment later. You are going to want to avoid these kinds of hidden fees, so know about them up front.

Keep your home’s exterior well lit. Burglars prefer the cover that night provides their criminal activities. You should put a light on any area where a person could break in. All doors, porches, garages and windows should be well lit.

If you will be away from your home, arrange to have whoever is collecting your mail to also pick up fliers placed inside your door. It isn’t uncommon for burglars to put up fliers to see whether or not they’re removed. By your neighbor taking the flyer, it appears as if you got it yourself.

TIP! Be more proactive when you are determining the safety of your neighborhood. Speak with your neighbors.

If you have rooms that are off limits to kids and company, the following is a great solution. Instead, use a numeric keypad. You could install these locks yourself. Or, you may have a security company to do it for you.

Spring Latch Locks

Do not use spring latch locks on your doors. These locks are very easy to pick with something as common as a credit card. Intruders can pick these locks by wedging a credit card in between the latch and the door. If your doors sport spring latch locks, add deadbolts to beef up security.

TIP! Install lights that use a motion-sensor. They’ll flip on when people walk within a certain distance of your house.

Your auto registration is best kept somewhere other than your glove compartment. These documents contain a lot of sensitive personal data, like your home address. Instead, carry them with you or find a more secure location in your car. You must have them on hand if the police stop you.

Now that you’ve read this article, you are surely more knowledgeable about the given subject. You should not purchase the first system you find. The safety of your family is important enough for you to take the time to consider it from every possible angle. Keep these tips in your mind as you think about home security.
