Protecting Yourself From Intruders: Home Security Basics

Keeping the bad guys on the outside is what you want to do as a homeowner. Unfortunately, it can often be tough to know where to begin. The following information should be very beneficial.

You can hide your spare key on your dog. Of course, your dog has to be an outdoor dog (or you at least need to have a doggy door) for this to work. 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.

Once you buy a house, switch out the locks. You don’t know who might have a key. To ensure that you are the only one who has access to your house, call a locksmith. This is also a good idea in the event that you misplace your keys.

TIP! Change the locks after buying a new house. You don’t know who might have a key.

Do you keep your dog outside when you aren’t home? Your furry friend is also a great storage place for your extra key. Hook your key to the dog’s collar in a place that is shielded from view. This is very effective if your pet is afraid of strangers; therefore, burglars are not very likely to notice the key.

You should never give details about your vacations and other plans on social networks. It can be exciting to tell everyone about your vacation, but you could potentially be letting a burglar in on your whereabouts.

Secure your garage. Some people are concerned about burglars entering through an attached garage. Try putting a C-clamp on your garage door track. This will stop the door from rising if you want to keep it closed.

TIP! Don’t give the keys to your home to a professional cleaner unless you trust them completely. Anyone you give the keys to your home to should be unarguably honest.

Request information from your local law enforcement agencies about home protection packages. Some police departments offer things like code numbers to help find your valuables should they get stolen. Get in touch with the department to determine their offerings.

Use exterior lights that have motion sensors. This type of light will come on when they detect motion within a certain distance of your home. They will signal movement to you but will also serve as deterrents to the thieves. Make sure you regularly change the light bulbs to ensure they continue to work properly.

Rural Areas

TIP! Fire-resistant building materials are the way to go, both inside and outside the home. Having your home built with fire resistant materials will help safeguard your home in case it catches fire.

Rural areas are just as prone to break-ins as cities. Due to the distance between neighbors, some think rural areas are more likely to have intruders. Others feel rural residents have a lower risk of being burglarized.

A secure hiding place can be created in a wall. You can hide small valuables in your walls. Just take advantage of the phone jack, electrical outlet or unused switch plate. You can also install a fake one.

Remove and replace any wood that is not up to par. It is simple for a robber to pry away rotting wood and enter your home. Replace this old wood if you want to keep your house safe.

TIP! You need to be sure the attached garage of yours is secure. A lot of garage owners fret over burglars entering this way, but there are answers.

See how long the home security company has been around before you make any decisions. Companies in business for many years engender great confidence and trust. You can feel confident when you choose a well established, reputable home security company.

Make sure your home’s exterior is well lit. Burglars like using darkness to hide. Add lights to any areas you believe are potential entry points for burglars. Make sure your porch, garage, doorways and windows are well lit.

What do you need to personally feel safe? While alarm systems are great, they aren’t necessary for every family. In certain areas, it may be just as useful to learn self defense or buy a dog, whereas other places may require added measures. Make sure you understand your risks so you can make wise purchasing decisions.

TIP! In the summer, remove all the dead trees from your yard. This can be a fire hazard, especially if you live in an area with high heat.
