Keep Your Home Safe With These Tips

Homeowners needs to take the right steps to protect their families. Burglaries, fires and natural disasters can all damage or destroy your home. Continue reading to educate yourself on home-security strategies to keep your home and loved ones safe from all potential threats.

Deadbolts with keys make the best locks. They include thumb latches that prevent anyone from breaking a window and reaching around to unlock the door. Only leave the key in the door when you are home, just in case of an emergency.

Don’t just consider alarming your doors when you’re considering an alarm system. Burglars can gain entry through your windows as well. Therefore, ensure the windows have an attached alarm. All potential entry points should have an alarm. This will make your family safer.

TIP! It is important that your alarm system wiring is not exposed anywhere. Easily-accessible security wiring is a definite weak point in your home’s protection; the best alarm system in the world is useless if it’s easily disabled.

Women are targeted for robbery more often, particularly if they have children or they live alone. Keep some shoes on your porch to make potential intruders think a man lives here. This will make burglars think twice about breaking in.

Extra Key

Be sure to regularly clean your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. The sensors in the detector can be compromised by an accumulation of dirt and dust. This compromises the device’s ability to secure your home in the presence of carbon monoxide and smoke.

TIP! If you’ve bought large or pricy items, avoid throwing out boxes until the day the trash is scheduled for pick-up. If you set these boxes out with the trash, thieves will know you have expensive items in your house.

Don’t hide an extra key under a rock or in a planter. You are allowing people to invade your home when you make it easy for them. For obvious reasons, experienced burglars know every possible hiding spot. Instead, give your extra key to a neighbor whom you trust.

When you can’t lock your door from the outside, your home isn’t secure. One of the most secure locks is a deadbolt that has a key to lock it from both sides of the door and cannot be opened by an intruder.

If you are new into a house, replace all the locks. You don’t really know the people you purchased the house from or all the folks they shared keys with, so don’t place too much trust in the old locks. Many other people could have keys to the property, and you probably don’t want them to all have access to your home.

TIP! Criminals are afraid of video surveillance systems. Burglars with masks like you see in movies are not really the norm.

Make sure that your valuables cannot be seen from outside the home. Large front windows are great, but they also allow others to peer into your home. By reducing visibility into your home, you protect your belongings, safety, and you improve the interior beauty of your home.

If you have a large dog, it can really deter intruders. A large, vocal dog is an unwelcome sight to would-be home invaders. A good big dog will protect your home and provide companionship for your family.

Are you aware that the wires located on the exterior of your house have value? Lots of people fail to appreciate this until they are hit by thieves. The reason they are valuable is because of their copper. A burglar can easily strip off your wires from the outside of your home very quickly. To keep the wiring safe, be sure that the wire is hidden from view.

TIP! Replace any wood surrounding your door frame that is rotting. A burglar can easily strip away wood that has rotted.

Go through a company to buy your security system. Resellers only want to make the most money they can, and they don’t necessarily guarantee their products. You can avoid these additional fees and have access to quality service by going through a reliable company.

It is important that you do not leave any wiring exposed outside of your house. Your wiring contains copper, which is worth a considerable amount of money. Hiding electrical wiring can stop intruders from stealing copper, preventing you from having to pay repair costs.

Seek out home security companies that offer security systems along with other things. Rather than giving you a basic system, they will evaluate your unique situation and tailor something to you. They could suggest better locks, trimming hedges back, or even replacing entire doors and windows. Any company you do business with should express concern for your overall well being.

TIP! Plug a rechargeable flashlight into an outlet in each room of your house in the event of power outage. Flashlights are key because they allow you to move around if an emergency should arise.

Make sure your children bring in all of their toys from the yard when they are done playing. This will clue the thief in that a woman lives in the house. Women have expensive jewelry more often than men.

Even if you’re not going to be gone long, keep your home locked. In a lot of cases, home intruders enter through unlocked doors. A thief can steal lots of stuff in a little amount of time.

Be sure to secure your window air conditioners with screws or by placing bars over them. Unless they are bolted down and secured, a thief can remove them and gain access to your home. In the wintertime, remove the air conditioner from the window to ensure security.

TIP! If the home you are moving into is not brand new, you should change the locks on all the doors. Although the previous owner should not have a key, there is no way for you to know this.

No matter who lived in the home before you moved in, replace the lock or rekey it. This should be done for rented and bought homes. Do your own lock replacement, or see if a locksmith or landlord will do it.

You want to minimize the amount of your home’s interior that’s easily visible from outside. If you can see a big screen tv or computer from outside your home, a thief can see it too. Install some window treatments to cover your windows so people cannot see inside. If you can’t do that, don’t keep your valuables in the peripheral rooms of your home.

Owning a gun is one way of keeping your home safe. Give some serious thought to purchasing a gun and learning how to use it. Having a gun in your home may make you feel safer.

TIP! There have been several incidents when a person knocks on a door claiming they need assistance, and then when the door is answered, they burst into the house and wreak havoc. If a person ever knocks on your door screaming for help, just make a call for them from inside.

Homeowners should do everything under their power to make their home safe. This article is full of excellent ideas on how to protect your home from virtually any threat. The first step towards safety is making use of them.
