Tips For Securing Your House And Family

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


Keeping a security strategy in place is always wise, but it is not always easy to do. A small amount of research might be necessary before you can fully understand all of the different components that compose an ideal security system. Read on to learn what it takes to come up with a home security plan.

Spare Key

You can hide your spare key on your dog. This approach is useful if your dog is a large breed that lives outdoor, or if your house has a doggy door. Store a spare key within your dogs collar so you always have access to your home.

Your home should looked occupied all the time. Buy timers that will make your TVs, radios and other electronics turn on and turn off at various times. This will make your home look like someone is in it. This can be a terrific method of securing your home and keeping burglars at bay.

TIP! Be very cautious about entrusting a maid service with a key to your home. If you plan on giving them the key so that they can work in your home for over an hour, make sure that they’re reputable, hardworking, and honest.

Hide your spare key in a place where no one would think to look for it. Too many people put their extra key under the mat in front of their door; burglars know to check there. One idea is to hide your key inside the collar of your outdoor dog.

If you have an extensive online presence that includes a lot of people you don’t know too well, avoid announcing upcoming vacations. It’s natural to be excited about your trip, but this is as good as throwing out the welcome mat for people who know your home is unoccupied.

Your garage needs to be secure. It is possible for an intruder to get in the garage and then gain access to the house; however, you can do something about it. Simply attach a C-clamp near the roller on the door track.

Buy fire resistant flooring, roofing and ceiling. This can provide additional safety to the home, particularly in dry regions. Fire prevention is always a good idea, and sometimes it can be a lifesaving idea!

TIP! Avoid opening the door if you don’t know who is standing on the other side. Nowadays, people invent many stories of why they should come in.

Do not be shy. Speak to your neighbors. Keep an eye on their houses and yards and request that they return the favor. Don’t ignore any gossip either. You might hear helpful information, for instance if strangers have been hanging around.

Motion Activated

Put up motion activated lighting. These lights will turn on if anyone walks too closely to your home. You will receive advance warning of any potential issues, and a would-be intruder will probably be scared off. Make sure you keep fresh light bulbs in your motion activated lights so that they will work correctly.

Your garage should be as secure as your home. Some people are concerned about burglars entering through an attached garage. A C clamp helps for garage doors on a track. The clamp actually keeps the door closed if tightened close to the track roller.

TIP! Request information from your local law enforcement agencies about home protection packages. Home inspections or engraving identifiers can help protect you.

Whenever you are selecting a home security company, make sure you go with your gut feelings. This goes for the installer, too. Make sure that the installer has experience installing your type of security system. Do some background research on the company you select, and look for people who make you feel safe.

Walls can be a great hiding spot. Concealing small valuables in your walls is an easy and highly effective way to protect them. Any phone jack or electrical outlet that isn’t being used is a great place to hide valuables. Even if every single plate in your home is being used, you can purchase a fake one purpose-built for concealing valuables.

Make sure that none of your valuables can be seen from the outside. While it may be nice to look out, burglars will see your valuables inside. Make sure you keep your blinds closed or arrange your possessions in such a way that they can’t be seen from outside.

Make your home safer by storing your car inside the garage. It won’t be vandalized or stolen this way. Keeping your car out of sight is also a good way to prevent intruders from determining whether or not you are home.

TIP! Don’t throw away boxes for expensive or valuable items until the garbage collection day. Having these boxes nearby can tell robbers what kind of merchandise you’ve got in your house.

Purchase an alarm system that has a few “bells and whistles;” you don’t just need protection for your doors. Each window represents a possible entry for your thief. If you have an alarm attached to each of your windows and doors, you can keep track of all the entry points for your home. This is vital to keeping your family safe.

Home security is an extremely important topic; unfortunately, not many people are knowledgeable on it. Learning more about the concept should be a focus of anyone looking to protect their family and possessions. Thanks to this article, you now know where to begin.
