Best Tips On Improving Your Home Security

It goes without saying that, as a homeowner, you wish to keep your investment safe. Nothing is worse than seeing your home destroyed or seriously damaged. You can avoid stressful situations by investing in a quality home security system. Continue reading to learn tips that can keep your home and family safe.

Be sure to lock your shed door, especially if a ladder is inside. An unsecured ladder is an open invitation to burglars who want to access your second story windows. Likewise, items like garbage cans, building supplies and so forth should be locked up so that they cannot be used to climb into high windows.

Providing a key to the person cleaning your home can be acceptable, but you must be sure they are honest and worthy of your confidence. Make sure you know they are legitimate before giving out the key. Be sure to make sure their references check out. If it is a known company, check with your local BBB.

TIP! Is your dog kept outside when you are away? Your dog is an excellent place to hide your spare key. The key can be attached to the collar of your dog.

Ask the home security companies to visit your home and design a system tailored to your needs. Every house and every family will produce a unique set of security concerns that are best addressed with tailor-made security arrangements. If there is a company that can come up with a customized plan, you will get what you really need.

If you’re moving to a new house, have the locks changed. Who knows who has a key? New locks mean only your family has access. Also, change your locks if you happen to misplace your keys.

Consider a surveillance system for your home and property. A wonderful way to make your home safer is by putting in hidden or visible cameras. While a visible camera is a deterrent, a burglar might try to disable the camera, but a separate hidden camera can solve this problem. Many surveillance systems will allow you to access them through your cell phone; therefore, you can ensure your home is safe even when you’re gone.

TIP! Make sure that your garage is not visible from the outside in. Use frosted, adhesive backed plastic to cover the windows.

Make sure the outside of the house is well lit. Burglars like committing crimes in the darkness. Install lights by each and every entryway to your home. Don’t forget that this includes ground-level windows as well as doors, garages, and porches.

It is important for your home to always look lived in. There are timers you can use to make electronics turn on and off at random times. This makes people think you’re home. This is a great way to keep your home safe and avoid burglaries.

Home security systems have additional features to just being noise alarms. Many systems sound an alert whenever people enter the house. This can be useful if you’ve got small children that are able to open doors.

TIP! If you buy something that is expensive, you need to make sure you don’t leave empty boxes curbside. A burglar may see the box and decide to target you as a result.

If the front door is open when you get home, resist the temptation to go in alone to find the reason. This can be dangerous since the intruder might still be on the property. Call the authorities and let them take care of the situation.

Think about getting a wireless security system for the home. Systems that are wired are cheaper, but they need unattractive wiring inside your home and may malfunction when you have a power outage. Also, you will have a very easy time installing them.

Buy a small home safe that you can use to keep your valuables in. This will keep your stash of diamonds, gold and other valuable items out of view and inaccessible to burglars. Keep it hidden in a hard to find location.

TIP! Are the numbers of your home visible from the street? If the numbers aren’t legible, police may drive right by. If you notice a problem, you should be able to fix it fairly cheaply, though.

A paper shredder can be a good security investment. Thieves are likely to steal documents that include your personal information if they can find them. You can tear your documents up by hand before disposing of them if a shredder is out of your price range.

Your dog could carry a spare key for you. However, this method is only effective if your dog is large, scary, and stays outdoors. Attach the key to your dog’s collar, and it will be handy if you ever need a spare.

When you decide to purchase a home alarm system, make sure you comparison shop. Each company has different rates for their security system. Obtain quotes from a minimum of three home security companies before making a final decision.

TIP! Make sure to use caution when deciding if and where to hide an extra key outside of your home. It is very common for homeowners to hide them under a mat or above the framing of their door, and intruders know this.

Always request that your house or pet sitter remove fliers from your door. Crafty burglars will leave fliers on homes, and check to see if they’re being removed as a means for determining whether or not the home is vacant. If it stays where they put it, they will know you are on vacation.

After you buy your new house, get new locks. The person who previously owned the home may have made copies of keys. To ensure that you are the only one who has access to your house, call a locksmith. Do the same thing if you misplace your keys.

The materials of your home should be fire resistant. This ensures your home won’t be a tinderbox. Avoiding fire hazards is a great way to keep things safe.

TIP! Dogs are among the most effective home burglary systems. Dogs become extremely protective of their families and bark when uneasy.

It doesn’t have to be the most difficult thing to keep your home protected. There is some education that is required though. Put the ideas mentioned here into practice for a safer future. Do not neglect even one of these tips, because they all help ensure your home is safe.
