How To Feel Safe In The Comfort Of Your Home

Have you considered installing a security system for your home? People don’t always consider all of their options first. Locking your doors is a big deterrent and if you keep doing that, it can provide you with plenty of security.

Always get references from anyone you are considering hiring to do work inside your home. A background check is also a good idea, so that you know what their criminal history looks like. You never really know if you can trust a service person, and giving access to the wrong one can prove disastrous.

Be sure not to use your birthday as the password on your door lock’s numeric key pad. Your birth date is easy information to obtain. Instead, make it a number which you can figure out through a math equation so you remember the equation instead of the number.

TIP! If you have an established routine for turning your lights on and off, consider investing in a timer. This is simpler for you to avoid flipping the switch and can make the lights turn off and on even if you’re gone a long time.

To increase your home’s security, buy some outdoor lights that are motion activated. At night, not only will these lights be handy to light up areas around your home,they are also a cost-effective and efficient security addition. If placed strategically around the house, motion detectors can make it very tough for criminals to get to your property.

When you hire a security firm, be certain to review all contracts carefully. Look out for hidden charges and surprises, especially if you need to cancel the contract early. You are going to want to avoid these kinds of hidden fees, so know about them up front.

Any priceless items need to be secured. This includes important documents, jewelry and keepsakes. Floor safes are great for keeping these items inside the home. You could also look into getting a bank safe deposit box.

TIP! If the living room window in your home has direct line of sight to the street, you’ll want to draw those curtains at night. You never want to make it easy for folks to peer into your home.

You can keep intruders away by always having your house lit up. They don’t want visibility. By minimizing dark and shady areas, you are taking away a potential burglar’s hiding spots. Keep lights on in the evening for a safer home.

SHARE IT SO OTHERS CAN BE INFORMED

The Internet is great for searching for home security companies, so use it to your advantage. You can check out their packages and rates and also read some customer reviews. Make appointments with the three best companies, and take the time to go over the details and compare them.

Make friends with a talkative neighbor who is home a lot. While much of the information these folks pass around is useless, they’re also the first to pick up on suspicious activity in the neighborhood. If you are friendly with them, it increases the chances of them alerting you right away.

TIP! If you will be away from your house for an extended period of time, turn the ringers off for all your phones. If a burglar keeps hearing your phone ring, they’ll know the home is not occupied, making it more likely for a break-in to occur.

Your landscaping should be designed based on what will be safest for your home. Windows should be free from obstructions like trees, shrubs and fencing. If these things can be seen by the naked eye, they won’t offer hiding places to potential criminals. Put landscaping farther away from the house for greater safety.

You need to take your car registration documents out of your car. If someone finds them, they’ll know your address. You should make sure to keep them on you, or store them somewhere safe in your car. They have to be accessible in the event you are in an accident or receive a speeding ticket.

Never allow a stranger to enter your home. Stay true to your safety, even if it appears the person has legitimate reasons for wanting entry. Some people will knock on your door simply to see whether you have a security system.

TIP! Program your garage door code to something that you will remember, but that would be hard for someone to guess. The code you get is standard for all units and can open many garages.

Do not hide your key in obvious places. Rocks that aren’t real are easy to notice. Doormats, too. A friend or neighbor can be a much better key holder than an inanimate object. If you cannot do that, at least find an unusual place to hide the key.

Think about getting a hard-wired home security system if maintenance costs are an issue for you. A wireless system is a good option but you will have to replace batteries regularly. If you forget to change the batteries, your system will not work correctly. Replacing batteries can get costly.

Make sure your smoke alarms are interconnected. This means that the alarms all “talk” to each other. All the alarms will go off if smoke is detected in one area. This means that there is no way you will sleep through an alarm, should a fire occur in one part of your house. This will increase your chances of being able to put out the fire before it does too much damage.

TIP! Lock up your ladder in the shed! You may as well show the burglars exactly how they can get easy access to the second story. Store anything a person can climb on away from your house and locked up.

A home security system might just be what you need. Small changes can make a big difference in your home’s security. Research your options to find the best solution for your family.
