Discouraging Break-Ins: What You Need To Know About Home Security

You may know someone personally that has had their home broken into. There has been an increase in home invasions, making home security even more important than it ever has been. Home invasions can occur anywhere; no neighborhood is immune. The following article will provide you with some useful tips on home security.

Inquire as to the different lengths of contracts offered by your security company. There are advantages and disadvantages to each. Longer contracts may offer more affordable monthly payments; however, it may be hard to cancel that contract should you decide to change services or sell your house. Short contracts leave you with freedom, but also a larger bill.

If you see that the door is open, do not enter the house. This can be dangerous since the intruder might still be on the property. Call the cops and let them do the initial walk through.

TIP! Think about getting a wireless security system for the home. A wired system is probably less expensive, but wires are a hassle.

Don’t use locks of the spring latch variety. Defeating a spring latch lock is a trivial endeavor; experienced burglars can get through one using nothing more than a credit card. A card can be placed between the latch and the door, and this will open it. If you’ve already got spring latch locks, you can put in a deadbolt for additional security.

When you aren’t home, be sure to close your blinds, curtains or shades. When they are open, potential burglars get a free look in. If a burglar sees something that is enticing, they are going to try and get it from your home. At night when you’re asleep, you should close your shades.

If you don’t own a paper shredder, it would be a good idea for you to buy one. Thieves are likely to steal documents that include your personal information if they can find them. If you don’t have a paper shredder, tear the papers up.

TIP! If someone looks after your house when you’re gone, have them remove fliers from the door. Burglars often put fliers on the door to see if the owner removes them.

When checking out security companies, ask whether they allow you to choose between buying or leasing the system. Buying equipment can be pricey upfront, but it’s a single cost versus a monthly cost. While leasing might be less expensive, it also comes with high monthly fees and contracts. Compare both avenues to see which one is better suited for your needs.

You should find out how many years of experience your home security service has. Companies that have been around for years have shown that they know the industry and that their services are reliable and great enough for recommendations. Knowing that you are dealing with a shady company can keep you calm when making this crucial decision.

Install a home surveillance system. Video cameras are a great deterrent. Visible cameras can deter many intruders and if they disable them, the hidden cameras can still capture footage. 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. Cover your windows with frosting; this could be purchased at hardware stores.

Be sure to get a home security service that will inspect your home and tailor a home security system just for you. Every homeowner has specific needs for their home and their family. Most companies will create an individual plan to meet your needs so you can have a high level of security to assure your peace of mind.

Keep the outside areas of your home well lit. Criminals love darkness to help mask their crimes. The most important parts of your home to light are all of its potential access points. This can include the garage, doorways, porches and other areas which invite an intruder in.

You should never open your door to someone you do not know. Nowadays, thieves are creative when thinking of ways to get homeowners to open a door and let them in. Keep a hard, fast rule that says you only open the door for invited guests in order to keep your family safe.

TIP! You need to be sure the attached garage of yours is secure. There is a way to stop thieves from entering your home from the garage.

Consider your security risk and safety needs before purchasing home security systems. Although automated electronic systems are powerful, they’re not necessarily the cost-effective solution for every home. In some areas, a class on self defense or a guard dog might be more suitable, yet in others, an advanced home security system will fit the bill. Be sure to understand the sorts of risks you face before deciding what sort of security is best for you.

Don’t think about home burglaries only occurring only at expensive homes. Easy access to the home is what most criminals look for. Make your home a safer place for your family by following the advice presented here and making your home unappealing to burglars.

Have your dog protect the spare key. If your dog lives outside or is able to come and go through a dog door, this is a viable idea. Just place your key on your dog’s collar.

TIP! When you buy a new home, be sure to have the locks changed. It’s important to know everyone who has a key to your home.
