Protect Your Home With These Home Security Ideas

If you are unsure what your security options for your home are, then keep reading in order to learn more. It’s not that simple to make a big and costly decision. In order to make the best decision, you must have the right knowledge about the subject.

Make sure you trust your house cleaner before you provide them with a key. When giving your house cleaner the key to your home, you need to be sure that they are reputable and honest. It is best to do a reference check on them. If the cleaner is from a firm, try calling the local BBB to find out about the firm’s reputation.

Having a big, scary dog around does has its benefits. A large, vocal dog is an unwelcome sight to would-be home invaders. Choose a dog who looks scary but loves your family.

TIP! It is better to buy equipment from a security company directly, instead of from someone re-selling it. Why should you provide a middle man with a profit when you can purchase the item straight from the source? Whenever you buy straight from the company, you are assured you are paying the right price and that the equipment will cater to your needs.

Do you keep your dog outdoors when you go out? Your pet might just be the perfect place to stash a spare key to your home. Put it on their collar. This is especially useful if the dog does not take kindly to strangers.

Buy a small home safe that you can use to keep your valuables in. This is vital since it means all of your things will be safe if someone breaks in your home. Keep the safe hidden in a hard-to-find location like an attic or a basement closet.

Any external wires can be a big target for thieves. Electrical wires contain copper, which is extremely valuable. Conceal the wiring of your home to keep copper thieves from stripping it and leaving you with a big repair bill.

TIP! You need to replace the locks of a home you just bought, no matter who previously lived there. This goes for both rentals and purchased homes, so be sure you talk to any landlord about getting the locks switched, or you can just do it on your own.

When looking for a system to secure your home, do comparison shopping. Each company has different rates for their security system. Look at a number of different companies and get at least three quotes before selecting what you feel is the ideal plan for your home.

Buy housing materials that are fire resistant. This will add an extra protection layer for your house, particularly if you live near power lines or in a dry location. Preventing fires is the best way to deal with them.

You want to minimize the amount of your home’s interior that’s easily visible from outside. If you’re able to see your computer or television, burglars can as well. Install window coverings to block the view. If this isn’t possible, move valuable items into another room.

TIP! Few people realize that a smoke detector needs to be cleaned periodically. This is also true of a carbon monoxide detector.

Solid Wood

Replace your doors with some that are solid wood or metal. Metal or solid wood doors cannot be broken. If the burglar tries to kick their way in, they have a hard time doing so. It’s a good idea to replace all your exterior doors with more secure ones. It really doesn’t cost a lot.

Criminals are afraid of video surveillance systems. The burglars wearing masks that we see in the movies are fictional. Many intruders will not wear masks to be less noticeable. If they see a surveillance system, they will often leave.

TIP! Find a company that goes the extra mile when it comes to their security systems. A security expert should tour your home to determine the most effective system for your situation.

A home security system can be really nice, but it’s only completely effective if someone notifies the police. Get an alarm that is centrally monitored to ensure that when it sounds, the police arrive. Don’t rely on anyone else to call.

Always lock your second story windows. Many people think burglars can’t gain access to these windows; however, this is not true. However, this is actually not how it goes. This is something that is a weak area, and criminals will go right to them.

Make sure all of your air conditioners are securely placed in your windows. An intruder could remove the unit and enter through the window. Remove these devices in the winter when you do not need them.

TIP! Many people purchase a gun for safety reasons. Consider being trained on how to use a gun in case you need to use it.

Deadbolts with captive keylocks are the best locks on the market. These locks have a thumb latch that will keep intruders from opening it by using a broken window pane to reach in. When you are at home, leave the key in the lock so that you can get out in case of a fire.

It’s sadly true that women who live on their own or with children are especially tempting targets for burglars and home invaders. Keep some shoes on your porch to make potential intruders think a man lives here. This will help keep criminals away.

Don’t put your spare keys under floor mats or plants. These seem like great places for you when you misplace your key. Thieves are aware of all these spots. Instead, give your extra key to a neighbor whom you trust.

TIP! Be sure your valuables are not visible from the outside of your house. If you have big windows near your big entertainment system, it can seem like an invitation to thieves.

When you can’t lock your door from the outside, your home isn’t secure. A deadbolt is always the best choice, and those with keys inside and outside guarantee a burglar cannot open it.

If you have paid close attention to facts presented to you, you should be prepared to make your choice. The decision you make will have a huge impact on making sure your family stays safe. Use what you have learned to help make this a daily reality.

Always lock your home, even if you plan on coming back within a few minutes. Many burglaries happen because the intruders can just walk right inside. A thief can take plenty of valuables in minutes.

TIP! Don’t just consider alarming your doors when you’re considering an alarm system. Your windows should also be protected because burglars can also break into them.
