Want Great Ideas About Home Security? Look Here!

Do you feel overwhelmed just thinking about home security systems? Are you having trouble even figuring out where to begin? If so, it’ll benefit you to learn a little bit about options available to you. Read this article to learn more.

Look for ways to make your home seem occupied. You can purchase timers that can control your household electronics such as lights, TVs and radios. This way it will always look as if someone is home, even when you are away. This is an excellent technique that helps avoid robberies while keeping the property safe.

Only allow maids and cleaning services to have a key to the house if they are known to be trustworthy. You need to ensure that they are honest and reputable according to references before you have handed over the key. Make sure you verify all references. If they work for a firm, call the local Better Business Bureau to find out that firm’s reputation.

TIP! Do you allow your dog to stay in your yard while you are away? If so, you can use your dog to hide your spare key. You can attach your key to your dog’s collar in order to keep the key hidden.

Do not give the key to your home to your cleaning person unless you are certain they are worthy of your trust. Make sure you know they are legitimate before giving out the key. Check the housekeeper’s references very carefully. Call the Better Business Bureau to see if their firm is well-reviewed.

Secure your attached garage. There is a way to stop thieves from entering your home from the garage. If the garage door lifts via a track, you can use a C-clamp to stop your door from opening at the hands of intruders.

Setting off an alarm during a burglary is just one of the valuable functions a good security system can perform. The majority of systems will give an audible alert when someone enters the house. This can be valuable to parents with small children as they are made aware their child has opened or closed a door.

TIP! Get a safe to protect your valuable items. You can’t have your valuable personal items and jewelry out in the open for anyone to see.

If your house has a garage, keep the car there, not just your junk. Keeping your car inside will deter thieves from stealing or vandalizing it. This will also make it more difficult for burglars to track when you away from home.

Have lights that sense motion. These kinds of lights will pop right on when they detect motion near your home. They will signal movement to you but will also serve as deterrents to the thieves. But keep in mind that the bulbs to the security light should be routinely changed to ensure that the deterrent system functions properly.

If you want to have a spare key close to your house in order to prevent lockouts, make sure you give its hiding place some careful thought. Above doors or under doormats are much too common to hide them and potential criminals will check them first. You could hide the key with your dog on the collar.

TIP! In the summer, remove all the dead trees from your yard. As it gets hotter, the chances of these igniting and putting your house at risk increase.

When choosing a home security firm, trust your instincts. You are giving someone unlimited access to your home, so be sure the installer doesn’t give you a bad vibe. Ask for someone else to come out or switch companies. After all, the point of the system itself is to help you feel more at ease.

Walls are great for hiding things. Jewelry and other small items can be protected very well when placed in hiding places in your walls. All you need is a wall opening you’re not using (something like a phone jack, electrical box, or switch plate). If you don’t have unused plates, it’s easy to put in a fake one.

Get to know your neighbors. Be friendly with people that live in the neighborhood. Ask them to look after your home, and in return, look out for theirs. Don’t ignore any gossip either. You might hear helpful information, for instance if strangers have been hanging around.

TIP! Put motion-sensor lights into your home. The lights will be triggered when someone gets too close to the house.

Keep valuables hidden within the walls. This does not mean that you should make alterations to your walls. There are lots of places around the home that have pre-cut areas that you can use. 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.

Security System

Always go with your gut when it comes to choosing a security firm. If you don’t feel comfortable with the technician, don’t allow them access to your home. If you are unsure, contact the security company to make sure that the installer was actually sent by them. The point of having a security system is to make yourself feel at ease.

TIP! Don’t put your spare key in an obvious place near your front door. Keeping a spare key is convenient but intruders will have access to your home if your key is too easy to find.

Don’t allow the wires of your home security system to be visible to others. An intruder can easily disable your security system by cutting the wires. Instead, make sure the wires are hidden. This helps keep you and your family safe.

Replace all the locks in your newly purchased home. The previous owner may be perfectly respectable, but you can’t know that for sure. Keep in mind that other people may have lived in the home prior to the seller.

You should always lock up your house, even if you’re only planning to be gone for a short time. Most burglars gain entry to a home through an unlocked door. Thieves can steal a lot of valuable stuff in mere minutes.

TIP! If your home isn’t new, replace the locks. Although other tenants might not have a key anymore, they could have copied it.

Do you now think you have a good grasp of home security? Make use of the excellent suggestions provided in this article in order to create your own plan for protecting your home. You will be glad that you did, and it’s time to take care of this very important matter.
