Renters and owners both need a safe home. Perhaps you are unaware of how to secure your home. This article is your solution. Keep reading to learn what it takes to secure your home.

Your risks of being the target of home intruders really doesn’t depend on the area in which you live. Some people feel that rural residents lead riskier lives because they are far away from neighbors. Still, many believe that rural environments are less frequently targeted by burglars.

See if your firm gives you the choice of leasing and/or buying security equipment. Buying the equipment might cost more up front, but it means a one time cost that does not continue every month. Leasing is cheaper, but it can involve contracts and pricier monthly fees. You must review both options carefully to determine which will best suit your needs.

TIP! Research how long a security company has been in the business before contracting with them. Look for a security company that is well-established and has extensive experience in the industry.

Don’t forget skylights when doing a security sweep for your home. Though skylights bring light into your home and look nice, it is also a very common way for burglars to get into your home. Be sure that the skylights for your home are durable and reliable.

Place your valuables in cut-outs in your walls. This doesn’t require tearing into your walls, of course. Many spots are already cut that can be used for this purpose. Why not take the guts out of an electrical socket you’re not using? You can convert it into a convenient and covert little wall safe.

The areas outside your home should be kept well lit. Burglars seek darkness so that they can stay hidden. Be sure all vulnerable exterior areas of your home are equipped with good lighting. Having these outdoor lights installed can really work as a deterrent to criminals who are considering your house.

TIP! If you get home and the door is open, don’t go in. A thief might still be in there, which could put you in danger.

Check with your local law enforcement agency about home protection plans. Many police departments offer programs that can include home inspections, home security training and more. Speak with the police in your area to see if they have these things.

If you purchase a new, pricey electronic like a TV or computer, don’t leave the empty box near your curb. Burglars will instantly take notices of these boxes and what used to be in them, making you an easy burglary target. Cut up the boxes when they’re empty.

Think about having a wireless security system for the home installed. Systems that are wired are cheaper, but they need unattractive wiring inside your home and may malfunction when you have a power outage. Also, you will have a very easy time installing them.

TIP! If you haven’t gotten a paper shredder, it may be time to purchase one. You will be astonished at how burglars find important information from loose paper that they could use to break into your house.

Are the numbers of your home visible from the street? In the event of an emergency, police officers may have trouble finding your house if they cannot read your address numbers. Fortunately, the solution to this is quick, easy and rather cheap once you are aware of the need.

Your precious pooch is one of your best home security weapons. Dogs are quite protective of their masters and home, and they can display quite a bark if someone comes near the house. There is no need for a guard dog. Even small dogs can keep intruders away since they don’t want lots of noise when committing crimes.

If you are going on a vacation, ask a neighbor to pick up your mail and check your home for flyers. Thieves have put them up in order to see if people are home to take them down. If the flier stays in place, the burglar knows that the homeowner is out on vacation.

TIP! You need a home security system. Installing hidden and visible video cameras is great for securing a home.

If you live with children or others whom who don’t want entering some parts of the house, keys and lock sets aren’t the only option. You can have key-less locks which require a code. You can have your home security company install it for you, or you can do it yourself.

Inquire whether a security company offers variable contract lengths. There are sure to be both good points and bad points about each option. A long term contract should have a lower monthly rate but it also requires you to commit for a long period of time. Shorter contracts allow your greater freedom, however they usually cost more each month.

The best method to maintain a thief from going into the garage is making sure nobody can see inside. Frost your windows so people cannot look inside your home. Do not leave doors open for lengthy periods while you are doing work.

TIP! Don’t allow a complete stranger to come in your home. People try many ways to convince others to open up their doors so that they can commit burglary or worse.

Spring Latch Locks

Do not use spring latch locks. These locks can be opened easily with a credit card. This is achieved by sliding the card into the space between the latch and the door. This causes the lock to click open. Put in a deadbolt for more security if your doors already contain spring latch locks.

If you have an attached garage, make sure it is secure. Some people are concerned about burglars entering through an attached garage. You can use a C-clamp to stop the door from being opened.

TIP! Always make your house appear to be occupied. There are timers you can use to make electronics turn on and off at random times.

If you aren’t at the house, keep the windows and curtains closed. You don’t want potential thieves knowing you are gone. When they are open, potential burglars get a free look in. They might see something worth breaking in to get. You should also have them down when you are sleeping.

It is now time to take action and find a good home security system. Don’t waste time and let these ideas go to waste. Let these ideas lead your way. You’ll see that you sleep much better knowing that you’re safer, so don’t wait!

Your dog can safeguard an extra key. This works with a dog that stays outside or a dog with a pet door. Just hide a spare house key on the inside of your dog’s collar. Then when you need an extra key, you will be able to access this one.

TIP! Make sure that you change the locks once you’ve taken possession of the house. Many people may have been given keys by the former owner.
