Place the spare key that you make on your dog. This works with a dog that stays outside or a dog with a pet door. Latch the key on his collar and voila–you have a spare key available!

Buy a safe to contain everything of great value. Doing so can protect your valuables in the event of a robbery. Conceal the safe in an out-of-the-way and not easily accessible spot, such as an attic or a basement area.

TIP! Buy housing materials that are fire resistant. This will help ensure the safety of your home, particularly if your home is located in a dry area.

Any time you buy a new home, have the locks changed. This is because you really have no idea who has keys, and therefore access to your home. Get a locksmith in right away. If you lose your keys, you should do the same thing.

It’s important to comparison shop for alarm systems. Most companies have different price schemes for the the same general level of protection. Be certain to obtain multiple quotes prior to making your choice.

If you have a lot of unfamiliar people on you social networking accounts, avoid letting everyone know you will be going on vacation. Potential intruders could get a good idea of when you will be gone by monitoring what you share on social networks.

TIP! Turn the ringers off on all your phones if you will be away for a prolonged period of time. If the phone continues to ring while you’re gone, this lets an intruder know that the home is empty.

Spare Key

If you want to have a spare key close to your house in order to prevent lockouts, make sure you give its hiding place some careful thought. Common places to hide a spare key are above your door frame or underneath your doormat. Therefore, thieves are more likely to check these places out first. Try hiding your key on a lawn statue or in a potted plant.

In summer, take care to trim back branches and plants near the house. When summer heats up, such debris can catch fire. Clear up your yard so it looks good and is safe.

TIP! It doesn’t matter how much money you spent, you should have an annual test. The security company should have a specialist come to look at it.

If you’ve got lots of people you don’t know on your social networks, don’t let them know that you’re going to be on vacation. Potential intruders could get a good idea of when you will be gone by monitoring what you share on social networks.

Ask your friends for advice before you choose a home security system or company. They have likely had interactions with home security providers that they can tell you about, saving you time and stress. Do your research; it will help you make a good decision in the end.

When securing your home, don’t forget about skylights. Though skylights bring light into your home and look nice, it is also a very common way for burglars to get into your home. Your skylights should have strong components that can withstand tampering.

TIP! Walls can serve as a handy hiding place. If you own small valuables that require protection, try hiding them in the walls.

Rural Areas

Rural areas are just as prone to break-ins as cities. Some people think that country folk are mainly targeted since they don’t have nearby neighbors. Some think rural areas see less burglary.

Conceal valuable spaces within your walls. You don’t need to cut out segments of your walls by the way. Most homes are pre-equipped with these handy spaces. If you have an electric socket you do not use, hide valuables behind their covers.

TIP! Before allowing someone into your house, be sure to carefully check their references. It wouldn’t hurt to also perform a background check.

Do not choose a home alarm system that monitors only your doors. Your windows are easy entry points for crooks too. The alarm and monitoring system should be set for all windows and doors. This helps ensure your family stays safe.

After installing a security system in your home, make sure any wires are hidden. One of the ways an intruder can get around a security system is by disconnecting or cutting the wires. Instead, make sure the wires are hidden. Keep yourself safe.

When standing in the street, can you see your house numbers? If your numbers cannot be plainly seen, then the police will struggle to locate your home very quickly in case of emergency. Thankfully, you can right this wrong cheaply and quickly.

TIP! Inquire whether a security company offers variable contract lengths. These lengths can be both good and bad.

Be on the lookout for rotten wood anywhere near your doors or windows. Home invaders interested are able to pry off any rotted wood to get inside. Replace dead wood with thick, firm pieces to maintain a high level of security.

You should have several flashlights and batteries in all your rooms. Having these in an easy to find place will allow you to see in the dark much quicker. Also show your children how to use them so they can help out in emergencies.

Ask whether companies offer options to lease or buy your security equipment. Purchasing equipment outright will cost more initially, but may offer savings over the long term. 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.

TIP! Think about getting a hard-wired home security system if maintenance costs are an issue for you. Wireless security systems are great, but need frequent battery changes.

Look online for a reputable home security business. Take a look at various websites and read over customer testimonials and details about various packages. Then, you can set appointments to make price and service comparisons before you choose.

Now that you’ve had a chance to review some options to secure your residence, it’s time to think about implementing them. The longer you wait, the more vulnerable you remain. They can be a springboard and allow you to build on them and secure your home. You will see that you tend to sleep better at night when you are safer.

If you often turn your lights off/on around the same time, consider using a timer. This makes it easier for you as you won’t have to flip the switch, but it also ensures the lights continue to go on and off, even if you’re not at home for a long period of time.

TIP! All doors leading into your home should be made from solid wood or metal. Doors made of metal or wood are much sturdier than those that aren’t.
