There are more features to a home alarm system besides making sounds when people break in. Many systems can be used to go off whenever anyone enters your home. This is a good way to keep track of where your young children are.

TIP! Look at the prices for all of the security systems that you are interested in. Different companies can provide equivalent levels of service and security, but their prices can vary wildly.

Protect your spare key by using your dog. Really this works only if you have a pet door or if your dog is an outdoor dog. Put a key on the dog’s collar so you have access to it when necessary!

Does your dog remain outside while you’re gone? Use him or her to help hide your spare key! Put the key on the dog’s collar. Especially if your dog is not very friendly, this will help keep your key safe.

Be smart about where you decide to hide spare keys. Doormats and door frames are predictable places that burglars will always check. One good place to hide a spare key is in the collar of a dog that does not take kindly to strangers.

TIP! Make sure your attached garage is secure. There is a way to prevent burglars from entering your home through the garage.

You should never open your door to someone you do not know. People try many ways to convince others to open up their doors so that they can commit burglary or worse. You should only open the door to people you were expecting.

If you have an attached garage, don’t forget to secure it as well. There is a way to stop thieves from entering your home from the garage. A C-clamp placed on the garage door track will stop it from opening when you don’t want it to.

Your home security system ought to be checked each year. Call the company and have them send someone to check it out. Mother nature can sneak in and cause many problems. If you cannot see a problem, you might not know one exists.

TIP! Avoid being shy. Talk to your neighbors and those on your block.

Be bold. Speak with your neighbors. Look out for their property, and see if they will look out for yours. Don’t discount what sounds like idle gossip. Important security details (like the presence of strangers in your neighborhood) can come out of the most innocent conversations.

Be sure your valuables are not visible from the outside of your house. While it may be nice to look out, burglars will see your valuables inside. Always keep your windows covered and do not tempt others by displaying your possessions.

Put motion sensor lights around your house. They will illuminate your property if they sense any movement near your home. These lights will not only let you know when someone gets too close, they will also stop potential burglars from breaking in. After all, burglars don’t want anyone to know they are there. Remember that the bulbs need to be changed so that the lights keep working.

TIP! Listen to your intuition as to whether your system is being installed by a trustworthy home security company. This is doubly true when you feel unease about the installers.

Entry Points

When deciding on an alarm system, be sure and get one that protects more than your doors. All of your windows are possible entry points for a thief too. Be sure your home alarm covers all entry points into your home. This is a way to make sure your family will be safe.

Your home may be equipped with skylights, and if so you must not neglect them in your security planning. Though skylights bring light into your home and look nice, it is also a very common way for burglars to get into your home. Keep them secure with heavy duty hardware that closes them off to potential thieves.

TIP! Don’t put your extra key under you doormat, in a planter, or in a cleverly disguised false rock. Keeping a spare key is convenient but intruders will have access to your home if your key is too easy to find.

If your home security system is installed, be sure its wires are well-hidden. If the wires are exposed, an intruder can bypass the system by cutting its wires. To provide maximum security, wiring should be laid underground or installed safely within the walls of your house. This will make you much safer.

As was proven in the article above, it doesn’t have to be all that hard to maintain a safe home. All you need is some reliable home security advice. Use these excellent ideas to really up the security around your house. Do everything in your power to make sure your house and your family are safe.

It is important that you do not put expensive valuables in plain sight. Open curtains allow people to see inside your home and see exactly what you have. Cover all street-facing windows.

TIP! If you need to make the outside of your home secure, you can achieve this relatively inexpensively by installing lights with motion detectors. These lights will keep your property well lit and give you a good idea of who approaches your home.
