Tips On How To Make Your Home A Fortress

If home security is on your mind, you want to pull together as much information on the subject as possible. This is not a decision to take lightly. It is better to concentrate on providing the best level of safety possible for your family and home.

Be sure your home appears to always be occupied. Keep your radio, TV and lights on timers. This gives off the appearance that someone is home. This is great for keeping a home safer from burglaries.

Make your home look occupied at all times. Use timers to make electronic devices and lights turn on and off at intervals. Potential intruders will stay away from your home if they believe someone is inside. This can be a terrific method of securing your home and keeping burglars at bay.

TIP! When you set out to purchase home security equipment, remember to comparison shop. You would be surprised to see that the prices are much different for each company, even though it’s for the same type of protection.

Place the spare key that you make on your dog. This is only true if yours in an outdoor dog, or your house is equipped with a doggie door. Attach the spare key to your dog’s collar. By doing this, you have a handy spare key whenever you need it.

Do you keep your dog outside if you leave the home? This is a good spot for keeping your spare key. Attach the key to the dog’s collar so that it is hidden from view. If you have a pet that does not trust strangers, this can help you get into your house if needed.

Check with your local law enforcement agency about home protection plans. Some police departments offer things like code numbers to help find your valuables should they get stolen. A quick call to the non-emergency number at the police station in your town will tell you all you need to know.

TIP! Don’t hide an extra key under a rock or in a planter. These seem like great places for you when you misplace your key.

Home security plans have other features along with an alarm that goes off during a break-in. Most security systems can facilitate alarm sounds anyone enters. This is a valuable safety feature for parents of small children since they know if their child has exited the home.

It can be a good idea to only leave one ringer on in your home when you are away. A burglar might hear your phone ring and ring and ring, then realize that you are not home to answer it.

Always lock your home when you leave it, no matter how soon you plan to return. Most real-world burglars aren’t master lock-breakers; they simply stroll in through a door left carelessly unlocked. A burglar can steal a lot of expensive stuff in a short amount of time.

TIP! If you make a large purchase, like a big screen television, don’t simply set the box out in front of your home. If you set these boxes out with the trash, thieves will know you have expensive items in your house.

If you do not know the person at your door, don’t open it. There are people who are going to be convincing, but they can just be professional thieves. You should only open the door to people you were expecting.

Keep your car in the garage. Protect your car from vandals by keeping it in the garage. Storing your car in the garage will also make it difficult for anyone casing your home to figure out when no one is going to be there.

Before allowing someone into your house, be sure to carefully check their references. Perform a background check to learn about their criminal history, too. You can never be too sure about anyone you hire to enter your home, and giving them access can work against you.

TIP! A great way to achieve extra security is to install exterior lighting equipped with motion detectors. These lights illuminate your home during the night.

Security System

Remember to have an annual inspection of your home security system. This is a job for professionals; get a security firm to inspect your equipment. There are any number of problems that can cause malfunctions in your security system, from weather damage to animal activity. Sometimes, you may need a professional to locate the problem.

Whenever you sign with a home-security company, it is important that you thoroughly read the contract. They sometimes have hidden costs if you let go of them prior to the contract expiring. Try avoiding these fees when you can so that you know about them.

TIP! Be sure to make good use of the Internet when you’re trying to select your home security company. Many websites feature reviews, testimonials, and package details from home security services.

Have lights that are motion-sensor installed. This type of light will come on when they detect motion within a certain distance of your home. This lets you know something is moving and also drives off criminals. Make sure you keep fresh light bulbs in your motion activated lights so that they will work correctly.

Skylights could be a problem for the safety of your home. As nice as they look, they’re a prime target for thieves. You should have them equipped with strong, sturdy hardware.

Before signing up for home security, find out how long they’ve been in business. Companies that have been around for awhile show that they can provide reliable support. It can ease your mind when you know you’re not doing business with a company that might not be around tomorrow.

TIP! A wireless security system for your home is a great option. While systems with wires are cheaper, you have to rewire your home and worry about power outages.

Never place a spare key in a plant box or under your welcome mat. While you may feel that you are keeping yourself safe by allowing a way in for yourself, you are also allowing everyone else to visit whenever they want. For obvious reasons, experienced burglars know every possible hiding spot. If you have a neighbor you can trust, have them hold your extra key.

You should now be much more knowledgeable on the topic of home security. You shouldn’t go into this blindly. You want to make your family’s safety your priority. Keep the ideas from this piece close at hand in the coming days.

Put the shades down on your windows when you are out. You don’t want potential intruders to be able to look inside. They may break in if they spot something that they like. Also lower them while you are sleeping.

TIP! Don’t hide keys in obvious areas. Fake rocks are easy to spot.
