If there are people you don’t know that have access to your social media sites, then you don’t want to let all of them know you’re on vacation. 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.

Car Inside

TIP! When you buy a new house, change the locks. Many people may have been given keys by the former owner.

Keep your car in your garage if you have one. Keeping your car inside will deter thieves from stealing or vandalizing it. Besides, intruders will have a hard time determining whether or not you are home if you keep your car inside your garage.

Alter the combination of the locks in your home. Anyone from an old roommate to a former tenant could have access to your home if you leave the old locks in place. Changing the locks can typically be done very cheaply and quickly.

Understand certain safety precautions when it comes to having skylights for your home. While they are nice and help with lighting, they also provide the burglars help with access to your home. Use heavy-duty hardware to secure your skylights to the roof.

TIP! Beware giving keys to your maid unless the service has your absolute trust. If you plan to give them a key so they can clean in your home while you are away, ensure they are reputable and honest.

Walls are the perfect place to hide. If you own small valuables that require protection, try hiding them in the walls. Use an old switch plate, outlet or phone jack. If you use all of them, you can always have fake ones installed.

Lock your home when you leave, even if you don’t think you will be away for long. A lot of times, burglaries happen due to carelessness. It doesn’t take long for a thief to steal thousands of dollars worth of stuff.

Some neighborhoods feel more safe than others, but a good security system definitely makes you feel more safe. Ensure that you have considered all your options before making a final decision.

You should think about getting a home security system that is wireless. While the wired systems are less expensive, they usually mean rather intrusive wiring for your house, which can also go out during power outages.
