Advice All Homeowners Should Know About Home Security

It is a homeowner’s responsibility to keep their home secure. You might think that all you need to do is to install a burglar alarm, but there are many other things you can do. Keep reading for an inside look at what you can do to make your home secure.

Moving into an apartment or home that you’ve lived in should involve changing the locks first to maker them safer. The previous tenant or owner may not have the keys, but you don’t know if they made copies for themselves or others. You can purchase the locks and install them yourself to ensure you’re the only person that has a key.

Do not make a number-code password your birthday or other obvious number. It is easy for anybody to learn your birthday, which makes it easy for them to access the house. Use a random number instead.

TIP! If you allow a security company to come to your house, make sure they appear professional and can present identification. It is simple for a thief to pose as a representative of your home security company as a means of gaining access to your house.

Use motion sensors on exterior lighting. When a person walks by your home too closely, these lights will go on. This is a good way of knowing who comes near your home and keeps you safe if you ever come home late. Do not forget to change a bulb when it burns out.

Don’t leave toys lying around your yard children are not at play. A thief may assume that women and children reside inside. Thieves assume that women are more apt to have valuables like jewelry inside.

Deadbolts with keys make the best locks. They have a thumb latch, making it impossible for someone to break the window, reach in and turn them. Leave a key inside the lock in case there’s an emergency.

TIP! Are you worried about the costs of ongoing maintenance? Then, consider using a security system that is hard-wired. While wireless systems are great, they do require batteries on a consistent basis.

Video surveillance systems do a great job deterring invaders. Burglars that wear masks that are seen in movies are fake. Burglars don’t want to stand out, and they usually plan to avoid residences where people may be home. Most are easily deterred with a security system.

If you are out of town for awhile, ask a friend to take a look at your door for any fliers. Thieves sometimes place fliers on front doors and then wait to see if anyone removes them. A flier that hangs around for days on end lets burglars know that there’s no one in the home.

Do you let your dog outside when you leave the house? This is where you can put your spare key. Conceal it in the dog’s collar. This works especially well as storage if your pet isn’t too fond of strangers.

TIP! When summer comes around, eliminate all vegetation and dead wood from your yard. These items have a higher chance of catching fire during the hot months.

You may think that the previous homeowners are extremely nice, but the truth is that you really do not know them. Therefore, replace all the locks in your home. Whether you are renting or buying, this is a matter of concern. If renting, ask the landlord to change the locks. You might need to do this yourself or hire a professional to do it.

Often criminals use the tactic of knocking on a door and seeking assistance. When the unsuspecting homeowner opens the door, the criminal bursts in and wreaks havoc. Tell anyone at your door asking to use your phone that you’ll call on their behalf. Call the cops if you don’t know what you should do.

Sliding glass doors pose large security issues in homes. Intruders can easily unlock these doors by simply lifting and shaking. You can install a security channel to protect your sliding glass door and/or cut a piece of pipe or a dowel that fits into the door channel. This prevents the door from being opened.

TIP! If you have valuables, whether a laptop, tablet, large flat-screen TV, a gun collection, art, or jewelry, keep them away from the windows. If no one can see that it is there, they are much less likely to break in trying to steal items of value.

Security System

Make sure anyone approaching your home is aware you have a security system in your home. Deter potential thieves by posting lawn signs and window decals notifying them of the presence of a security system. By making them aware before they enter your home, you’ll save yourself both time and headaches.

Your dog could carry a spare key for you. However, this method is only effective if your dog is large, scary, and stays outdoors. Put a key on the dog’s collar so you have access to it when necessary!

TIP! Change your garage door’s opener code. The default code is the same for many products.

Buying home alarms is terrific, but only in the case where someone will contact the police when they sound. The best strategy is to buy a centrally monitored alarm so that the police always show up if it is triggered. It is not good enough to depend on your neighbors being able to call for you.

If your home has window-mounted air conditioning units, ensure that each one is secure and cannot be dislodged. They can be removed quite easily otherwise. Window units should be removed entirely in the colder months (when they’re not needed) so that your home stays as secure as possible.

Devote extra security to your irreplaceable possessions. Irreplaceable valuables, including financial records, family photos, legal documents, passports, etc., should be secured at all times. A great choice for keeping these items in your home is a floor safe. For added safety, place them in a safety deposit box at your bank.

TIP! The wiring outside of your home can be valuable. The majority of people aren’t aware of this fact until a burglar steals these wires.

Since reading this article, there is no excuse for your home to be unsafe. It’s worth the effort and expense to keep your home and family safe. You can do exactly that with these tips.
