Need Ideas On Keeping Your Home Safe? Read Here!

You might know someone that has been a victim of a home invasion. Home invasions are not uncommon, and it’s important to take certain precautions. Break-ins happen in all locations. The information below will help you prevent this from happening in the future.

Make your home safer by storing your car inside the garage. Keeping your car inside will deter thieves from stealing or vandalizing it. Hiding your car from plain view will also keep potential intruders from tracking when you are home and when you aren’t.

If your windows have A/C units, ascertain that they are screwed in securely or that bars are around them. Burglars could easily slide these out and enter the house if they’re not secured. Remove these devices in the winter when you do not need them.

TIP! Make sure you select captive keylock deadbolts. They have a thumb latch ensuring that reaching through a window won’t unlock the door.

If you have rooms that are off limits to kids and company, the following is a great solution. Instead, use a numeric keypad. Either you or a security company can install them.

Don’t avoid your neighborhood gossip. Instead, get to know him or her. Busybodies are most likely to notice suspicious people lurking about. By befriending this person, you will always have updates on the latest neighborhood news and threats.

Always change the keys and locks on a new home. This is true of rentals and homes you buy, so ask your landlord to switch the lock or hire a locksmith to do it yourself, if you are able to do so.

TIP! When selecting an alarm set-up, think about getting one that protects not just the doors in your home. Burglars can gain entry through your windows as well.

If you’ve got a keypad to lock your door, do not make a password which is obvious. It is easy for anybody to learn your birthday, which makes it easy for them to access the house. Make it something that is unique and that you can remember.

When moving into a new home, you should always change the locks. Anyone might have access to your home if the locks have not been changed. A new lock system means that only you and your loved ones have access. Also, change your locks if you happen to misplace your keys.

TIP! Some home security systems have additional security features besides sounding an alarm to deter a burglar. Modern systems are often capable of detecting any open door or window and announcing that fact.

Check with the police department in your town for home security tips and advice. Several in various jurisdictions have programs which entail providing a home inspection, what protective measures will help your home and even how to engrave valuable items to make them easier to recover. Ask your police department to see if these types of programs are available.

You need flashlights and plenty of batteries in each room just in case your power ever goes out. If the power goes out, you will be able to see everything. Train your kids how to use flashlights so that all members of the family can contribute.

It’s very important to close your curtains in the evening, especially where your home faces the street. There is no need to have outsiders looking into your living room. Someone who can peer into your home may decide that your valuables are ripe for the taking. Keep your valuables out of sight and you’ll make yourself less of a target for crime.

TIP! A sliding glass door can make your home less secure. Intruders can easily unlock these doors by simply lifting and shaking.

A common tactic used by thieves is to knock on a random door, ask for help and then bust in as soon as the door is opened. If there’s someone at your door requesting help, offer to make a call without opening the door. If you’re not sure what to do, then just call the police.

Keep your home’s exterior areas illuminated well. It will be easier for intruders to keep an eye on you and approach your home if they can hide in the dark. Put a light anywhere where an intruder can enter your home. Some examples include first story windows, garages, doorways and porches.

When installing your home security system, make sure to hide the wires. Intruders can get around security systems and into a home by cutting the wires. Keep the wires hidden in the walls or underground to keep intruders from getting in. This helps keep you and your family safe.

TIP! You want your blinds and curtains closed if you’re away from your home. Leaving the curtains up invites people to peer into your living room.

If you are moving in your new home, ensure all the old locks are replaced. Regardless of how trustworthy you consider the last owners to be, neither you nor they can be sure that there aren’t others out there with keys to those locks. Bear in mind that other people may have lived in the home before the previous owner.

Don’t keep your car registration inside the glove compartment. These valuable documents provide criminals with information about your home location. You should carry them with you or find some other hiding place inside your vehicle. Keep them close to you in case you get pulled over.

Beware giving keys to your maid unless the service has your absolute trust. When giving your house cleaner the key to your home, you need to be sure that they are reputable and honest. Be sure to make sure their references check out. If this professional is from a company, it’s best to check with the Better Business Bureau to see what kind of reputation they have.

TIP! When you consider a security company, be certain you read the details and fine print of the contract you’re about to sign. They sometimes have hidden costs if you let go of them prior to the contract expiring.

Avoid thinking that home burglaries only happen at the most expensive houses. Intruders could target your home if you have a few valuables. Make your home a safer place for your family by following the advice presented here and making your home unappealing to burglars.
