Home Security An Issue? Read These Helpful Suggestions.

Are you clueless about home security? Are you not sure how to begin protecting your home? If you answered “yes” to the previous questions, you simply need to learn more about home security in general. Go over the following article to find out more about home security.

There is a lot of value in copper wiring. The majority of people aren’t aware of this fact until a burglar steals these wires. The copper wiring can be stripped and be turned in for money. Make sure your wiring is hidden or hard to access to keep this valuable property safe.

Locks inside are great, but you must be able to lock your home from the outside as well. A deadbolt with keys on both the inside and outside of the door is best.

TIP! Blinds, shades and curtains are best closed when no one is home. If the blinds are up, then the intruders can see directly through your home.

Before you let any strangers enter your home, be sure you look over their references. You should do a background check as well to find out their criminal history. You don’t know whether the contractor, maid, or repairman that you’ve hired is trustworthy and handing them your keys could be a costly mistake.

Women have more chances of being the target of a home invasion if they live alone. Consider displaying large boots outside your home to make others think that you have a man living in your home. This will make criminals think twice before breaking into your home.

Home security systems have different kinds of features that can sound an alarm when someone breaks into your house. They can be programmed to alert the homeowner if a person enters the home. This is important to parents who have small children, because they will want to know if the children have opened a door.

TIP! A big dog that barks loud can help protect your home and your family. A large, vocal dog is an unwelcome sight to would-be home invaders.

If you have air conditioners in your windows, make sure they are securely screwed in or have bars around them. Burglars can easily move the units and enter the home, otherwise. In the winter, make sure you remove them from the windows for extra protection.

Keep safety at the forefront as you landscape. Shrubs, trees, fences, etc. should not obstruct the view of your doors and windows. If you have them visible, people can’t hide in those areas while they try to break in. Put landscaping farther away from the house for greater safety.

You should find out how many years of experience your home security service has. Any business with multiple years of history has a proven record in being reliable. You get better peace of mind if you deal with someone you know you can trust for the long haul.

TIP! You should think about your own safety when comparing different home security options. Generic systems aren’t for everyone.

Talk to your security company about the contract; in particular, inquire about the various contract lengths that are available to you. There are of course pros and cons for each contract. A longer contract might give you a lower monthly bill, but you could be stuck with those monthly costs if you sell your home or decide to discontinue services. Shorter contracts offer greater freedom, but may be more expensive each month.

External wiring on a home is often a very easy target for potential thieves. The price for copper is through the roof, which makes it attractive to thieves. Hiding electrical wiring can stop intruders from stealing copper, preventing you from having to pay repair costs.

You need to secure your garage if it is attached to your home. Intruders could easily break into your garage and access your home. A C-clamp is very useful for garage doors that lift on tracks. It will prevent garage doors from opening up whenever it is near the roller and is tight on the track.

TIP! Do not use spring latch locks on your doors. These locks are very easy to pick with something as common as a credit card.

Make sure the ringer on any phones in your home is turned off when you leave for vacation. If your phone rings and is not being answered, criminals will realize that you’re away.

Walls are excellent hiding spots. Keep small, valuable items inside the walls of your home. Use an old switch plate, outlet or phone jack. If you do not have any unused plates, it is easy to install a false one.

Buy fire-resistant building materials. This will help you protect your home under all circumstances. Lowering or eliminating the risk of a fire is an extremely important home security strategy because a fire can cause extreme destruction very quickly.

TIP! Check each spring for any rotting frames on your doors and windows. Replace them immediately if you spot any problems.

Hide Valuables

Get creative and hide valuables inside your walls. This doesn’t require tearing into your walls, of course. There should be pre-cut spaces throughout your home that will suffice. If you have an electric socket you do not use, hide valuables behind their covers.

Never keep the registration papers for your vehicle in your glove compartment. Anyone having access to this information can see where you live. You should carry them with you or find some other hiding place inside your vehicle. You must have them on hand if the police stop you.

TIP! Don’t let your children leave toys in your yard. This will inform potential burglars that women live in the home.

When you open the door to a stranger, you open it also to danger. If a stranger knocks on your door, do not open the door to help them. If they need a phone, tell them you will make the call for them. Call the police if you are unsure of how to handle the situation.

Are you now more knowledgeable on how to protect your home? Make use of the excellent suggestions provided in this article in order to create your own plan for protecting your home. You’ll be happy that you took care of the matter before something dangerous happened.

Can you read your house numbers clearly from the street? If an emergency happens, the police can’t get to the home as quick if your numbers are obscured in any way or are too small. Thankfully, you can easily fix this problem very quickly and cheaply.

TIP! You must keep your trash secure in order to keep your home secure. If you have expensive electronics, thieves can see the electronic boxes that sit in front of the house and they may plan on returning to steal them.
