It is a homeowner’s responsibility to keep their home secure. In addition to having an alarm system installed, there are a number of habits you can cultivate for maximum safety. Read on to find out all you can.

Spare Key

Make your home look occupied at all times. You can buy timers to have radios, TVs, lights and other electronics go off and on at different times. It’ll make it seem like someone is home. This should help you make your home safer and not attract the attention of potential intruders.

TIP! After you purchase a new home, change the locks. You have no way of knowing how many folks might have keys to your house.

Your dog could carry a spare key for you. This is a great idea if your dog is outside all the time, or they can get out through a doggy door. Attach the spare key to your dog’s collar. By doing this, you have a handy spare key whenever you need it.

Get roofing, flooring and ceilings that are fire resistant. This will give your home added security. Fire prevention should be taken seriously because it can stop a major disaster from happening.

Does your dog stay outside while you are gone? Use him or her to help hide your spare key! You can attach your key to your dog’s collar in order to keep the key hidden. If your dog doesn’t like strangers, it’s even better.

TIP! Buy a safe. This is very important, as you do not want your gold, diamonds and personal items exposed if someone were to break into your house.

Do not open your door for strangers. Many people are devising many different schemes to get into homes and burglarize them. Enforce a rule within your house that no one opens the door to unexpected people.

In the summertime, you should rid your yard of dead bushes and vegetation. These are vulnerable to fires and put your home in danger. Always clear the yard to ensure safety.

Buy fire resistant flooring, roofing and ceiling. This will help you protect your home under all circumstances. Preventing a fire is important since it can cause a lot of damage.

TIP! Avoid opening the door if you don’t know who is standing on the other side. People are coming up with all sorts of ways to convince people to open their door to them, with the intent of committing burglary or worse.

Is your garage used for storage? Consider removing those items and keeping your car there instead. It will be far more secure against thieves. Having the car in the garage will prevent it from getting broken into or stolen. This can also keep people from knowing your schedule.

Don’t be shy. Be friendly with people that live in the neighborhood. Watch their homes and ask them if they’ll watch yours as well. Do not ignore gossip either. You might actually learn a thing or two concerning people that have been hanging around.

Keep your car in your garage. Protect your car from vandals by keeping it in the garage. Additionally, if your car is put away, burglars will not be able to tell whether or not you are home.

TIP! Do not be reluctant to meet your neighbors. Talk to the people who live in your neighborhood.

Keep valuables out of sight of windows. Having large windows in front of your home may be a great way to see what is happening outside, but it can also give crooks a view inside your home. If your house has street-facing windows, make sure they are always covered and your make sure your valuables are hidden away.

Replace all the locks in your newly purchased home. The previous owner may be perfectly respectable, but you can’t know that for sure. If the previous owners have never changed the locks, there could be people out there who owned the house before them and still have keys to your house.

Walls are the perfect place to hide. If you own small valuables that require protection, try hiding them in the walls. All you need is a wall opening you’re not using (something like a phone jack, electrical box, or switch plate). You put in a fake plate if there aren’t any unused in your home.

TIP! Use the space in walls to store your prized possessions. This doesn’t necessarily involve chopping up your walls, either.

To increase your home’s security, buy some outdoor lights that are motion activated. Cost-effective and aesthetically pleasing, these lights really add value to your home. When they are positioned correctly, they make it pretty much impossible for intruders to get to your house unnoticed.

Having your home lit up and bright at night is a great deterrent to crooks. They don’t want visibility. When your house is well lit, intruders have no place to hide. This makes it hard for them to get things from you. Make sure the lights stay on to keep your home safe.

Before letting someone from a security company into a house, get some sort of official identification. It is easy for potential thieves to present themselves as representatives of a company in order to gain access to your home. Intruders could disguise themselves as home security representatives to inspect your current security system. Be careful to avoid any potential dangers.

TIP! If you are searching for ways to make your home more secure, one inexpensive way to accomplish this is to purchase exterior lights that have motion detectors. In the dark hours, these lights will provide the illumination necessary to protect your home and also save money by staying off when they’re not needed.

Having read this article, you now know what it takes to create a safe and secure home. It’s worth the effort and expense to keep your home and family safe. These tips can help.
