Securing Your Home When You Are Not Around

Every homeowner needs to keep their family and home safe. Burglaries are on the rise and protection against floods or fires can be useful too. Continue reading to educate yourself on home-security strategies to keep your home and loved ones safe from all potential threats.

Create the illusion that your home is constantly occupied. You could purchase timers which make lights and TV’s, as well as other devices, power on or off at varying intervals. This will give your home the appearance of someone being there. This is a great way to keep your home safe and avoid burglaries.

Does your canine stay in the yard while you go out? If so, you can use your dog to hide your spare key. Hook your key to the dog’s collar in a place that is shielded from view. This is a good way to ensure easy home access, especially if your pet does not associate well with strangers.

TIP! Put your spare key on your dog. This is only true if yours in an outdoor dog, or your house is equipped with a doggie door.

Be smart about where you decide to hide spare keys. Under the doormat or above the door frame are all too common spaces that will be checked first by potential intruders. Instead, try hiding a key on the collar of an outside dog.

Turn off ringers on land line phones while you are on vacation. If the phone rings without you there, burglars will suspect that you’re not home, and that can make your home a target for an attack while you’re gone.

Do not allow anyone you do not know into your home. While their story may seem legit, that doesn’t mean it is true. There are people that just want to go into your home to see if you’ve got a type of home security system, and if they see that you don’t, they’ll return when you’re not home.

TIP! Buy fire resistant flooring, roofing and ceiling. This will add an extra protection layer for your house, particularly if you live near power lines or in a dry location.

Always lock your house, even if you are only going to be away for a few minutes. A lot of times, burglaries happen due to carelessness. It does not take long for thieves to steal your expensive stuff.

Be sure to replace all of the old locks as soon as you move into a new domicile. The previous owner may be perfectly respectable, but you can’t know that for sure. Keep in mind that there may have been residents prior to that person too.

The wiring on your house is valuable to burglars. A lot of people don’t realize this fact until a robber steals it from their home. The wiring has copper and is easy to be quickly taken off a home. Hide the wiring and make it harder to access to prevent this from happening.

TIP! Get advice from loved ones about home security systems. They probably have both positive and negative things to tell you, and those comments will help you make your own decision.

Rotted Wood

Replace rotted wood around entryways. Anyone hoping to enter your home can very easily do so by just prying away the rotted wood. Replace it as soon as possible.

Having light on in your home at night will scare crooks away. They wish to avoid detection. With a well lit home there is no place for burglars to conceal themselves. Keep those lights shining brightly at night.

TIP! In summer, take care to trim back branches and plants near the house. These items have a higher chance of catching fire during the hot months.

Always use online resources to identify the very best home security firm. Look at various sites and read customer testimonials, along with details on various packages. You’ll find it easy to narrow your choice down to three top contenders; your next step is to arrange to meet each of them to discuss your specific security needs.

See how long the home security company has been around before you make any decisions. Companies that have been around for awhile show that they can provide reliable support. You should not trust a company that does not have a good record with your local Better Business Bureau or few years of experience.

If you come to your home and discover that your door has been left open, avoid investigating by yourself. This can be very dangerous because the thief could still be inside. The best thing to do is call the police and wait for them to arrive before doing anything else.

TIP! Use your garage for your car, not just storage. Keeping your car secured will prevent people from vandalizing it.
