9 Signs Your Home Is Being Targeted By Burglars

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Whether you’re living alone or sharing your living space with other people, it’s good to know some tips on avoiding being burglar victims. One way to discourage burglars is to install CCTV Camera Surrey installed outside your house. Opting for burglar alarm installation Surrey also enhances your security at home and alerts you when intruders are trying to break in.

Here are 9 signs burglars are targeting your home:

1. You start getting suspicious phone calls – Be wary if you’ve started getting loads of phone calls from strangers. Burglars trying to avoid being filmed on CCTV camera Surrey sometimes try to call homeowners to check what time they’re usually at home when the house sits empty.

2. Fake deliveries – If a delivery man shows up at your door when you know you didn’t order anything, refuse the package. Burglars can pose as fake delivery servicemen and try to get you to answer personal information to gain them entry into your house.

3. Strangers frequenting the area around your house – Be mindful of strange people that you see walking up and down your street more frequently than others. This could be a sign that burglars are trying to assess if your house is easy to get into. If you have CCTV camera Surrey at your house, you can easily rewind the footage and observe the crowd patterns outside your home.

4. Strange vehicle parked near your residence – If you’ve noticed a strange car or unmarked vehicle that’s always parked near where you live, take a picture of it discreetly and report it to the authorities. Burglars can sit in their cars while they observe the activities at your house.

5. A stranger is seen taking shots of your home – Burglars can sometimes pose as tourists taking pictures or selfies. If you notice that a stranger is taking lots of pictures of your house, you should be on alert.

6. Symbols appear outside your house – Police have learned that burglars “mark” their potential targets with different symbols placed outside the house. The symbols are designed to be mistaken for common vandalism, so it’s also a good tip to check if any new drawings show up on your wall or driveway.

7. New neighbor is unusually chatty about personal stuff – Take a step back when your new neighbor starts asking about many personal things. Don’t be too quick to share private details about yourself, and make sure that you turn on your burglar alarm installation Surrey at all times.

8. Your pet is missing – Burglars hate guard dogs and other pets because they essentially act as living, breathing burglar alarms for homeowners. If your dog or cat suddenly disappears, report it immediately and also consider that potential burglars might be trying to scout your house as their next target.

9. Someone you don’t know is pressing to come inside – Burglars can pretend to be inspectors or innocent people in an emergency. Don’t be too hasty to let strangers into your house. If someone says they need help, phone the police instead. Otherwise, you have every right to refuse entry to strangers.
