How To Keep Your Home Safe

For the sake of your family, your home should be as safe as you can possibly make it. When you are not home, it is important to keep your house secure. You can begin home protection with the advice in this article.

Be sure that your home is always occupied. Purchase timers for electronics, lights, radios and TVs so that they will turn on and off at varied intervals. This will make your home look like someone is in it. This is an effective deterrent against burglars.

After you purchase a new home, change the locks. You never know how many copies of the keys the previous owners made and handed out. Speak with a locksmith to get a unique lock for your home. In addition, replace your locks if your keys ever get lost.

TIP! Hide your spare key in a place where no one would think to look for it. Above doors or under doormats are much too common to hide them and potential criminals will check them first.

Does your dog stay outside while you are gone? They can help you with your spare key. Conceal it in the dog’s collar. If you have a pet that does not trust strangers, this can help you get into your house if needed.

Buy a safe and use it to hold all of the valuables in your home. This is important, since you don’t want your valuables exposed to a potential intruder. Keep the safe hidden somewhere remote.

Clear away all the dead and dried out vegetation around your home in the summer. These can be fire hazards and can cause damage to your home. Keep your yard clear of debris to keep your house safe.

TIP! Keep your car in your garage. Keeping the car inside is a good way to keep criminals from stealing or harming it.

If you have a garage, increase your home security by using it to house your car, rather than just for storage. Keeping your car inside will deter thieves from stealing or vandalizing it. Hiding it will help to deter people from tracking the times you aren’t there.

Avoid coming across as overly shy. Talk to your neighbors and those on your block. Keep on eye on their home and ask neighbors to return the favor. Do not ignore gossip either. While this is unorthodox, it may clue you into a possible home security threat.

Don’t be shy. Talk to your neighbors and those on your block. You’ll find that friendly neighbors make for a powerful support network. Keep an eye on their properties and they’ll respond in kind. Don’t ignore any gossip either. You may stumble across valuable security information, like if someone has noticed a stranger lurking around the neighborhood.

TIP! Use motion sensors on exterior lighting. These kinds of lights will pop right on when they detect motion near your home.

Install lights that have motion sensors. When a person walks by your home too closely, these lights will go on. They will notify you of any movement and can deter any possible burglars since they like remaining inconspicuous. Just remember and change out the light bulbs whenever necessary.

Use the spaces in your home’s walls to store valuables. You don’t have to cut pieces out of the walls. Take a closer look at your walls and note just how many access points there are already. An unused outlet can be taken apart, and the space used to create a tiny hidden safe.

When securing your home, don’t forget about skylights. While they are an excellent source of natural light, they are also an easy way for thieves to enter your home. Skylights need to be installed correctly and safely, with hardware that will keep intruders out.

TIP! When choosing an alarm system, consider one that offers protection for more than just your doors. Your windows are easy entry points for crooks too.

Make sure all the wood around your doors is in great shape. Rotten wood can be removed in order to get inside your home. Replace rotting wood with new wood to stay safe.

Add motion detector lighting to the exterior of your home for increased security. Cost-effective and aesthetically pleasing, these lights really add value to your home. If they are positioned correctly outside of your home, your motion detectors can make it impossible for strangers to sneak around.

When moving into a previously owned home, change the locks. While you may trust those who lived there before you, you have no idea who lived there before them. For maximum security, buy your own locks and install them yourself. This way you can be certain nobody else has a key.

TIP! If you have your home brightly lit, burglars are likely to avoid it. This will deter crooks from trying your home.

Keeping your home very bright during the night hours is an excellent way to prevent thieves. They don’t want visibility. If you have your home lit up, then you have made it hard for burglars to hide and rob your home. Keep the lights on when it’s dark.

Think about what you need to feel safe before considering security systems. While these systems are great and can help protect your family, they are not necessary for everyone. In certain areas, it may be just as useful to learn self defense or buy a dog, whereas other places may require added measures. See to it that you understand the risks involved in making these purchasing decisions.

Do your landscaping keeping safety in mind. All of your windows and doors should be unobstructed by plants, shrubs, trees or fences. If they are visible, people won’t be able to hide there while trying to break in. Keep this in mind as you design.

TIP! An important part of vetting any security company before you sign a contract with them is finding out how long they’ve been providing security services in your community. Companies with a long history can give you the best service for many years.

If you are looking for expert advice, this article provides lots of it. The next step is to put it into practice and make your home secure. Learning all you can about home security will enable you to protect both your possessions and your family.
