Solid Home Security Information Can Keep Your Family Safe

You may know someone personally that has had their home broken into. Home invasion crimes are happening more often, and you need to take steps to keep your home safe. Anyone can be a target. Read this article to get ideas on securing your home.

Always make your house appear to be occupied. Have electronics and lights with timers and set them to go off at various times. This will make it look like someone is home. This should help you make your home safer and not attract the attention of potential intruders.

Make sure you trust your house cleaner before you provide them with a key. You need to ensure that they are honest and reputable according to references before you have handed over the key. Check their references fully. If your cleaning person comes from a company, check with the BBB.

TIP! Turn off ringers on land line phones while you are on vacation. Intruders might be attracted by a phone that rings constantly without anyone picking up.

Always have the locks changed when you buy a new home. You’re not aware of any copies that have been made by the previous owners of the house. Changing the locks will give you peace of mind that you and your family are the only ones who have access to your home. You should also do this if your keys ever get lost.

If you retain a space key for when you get locked out, consider the place you hide it carefully. Above doors or under doormats are much too common to hide them and potential criminals will check them first. For a better solution, try tucking your spare key into your dog’s collar, provided you have an outside dog.

The fist thing you’ll need to do for home security is to get new locks. Maybe you’ve had a roommate leave or a bitter ex-lover, so changing the locks can keep you safer. Changing the locks can typically be done very cheaply and quickly.

TIP! Don’t forget to secure your skylights too. As nice as they look, they’re a prime target for thieves.

Secure your attached garage. There is a way to prevent burglars from entering your home through the garage. You can use a C-clamp to stop the door from being opened.

You should not be shy. Talk to your neighbors. Keep watch of their homes when they are away, and ask if they will return the favor. Pay attention to gossip. You can learn of important security information, including if strangers have been lurking.

Hide your valuables in the walls. You should think about hiding certain small valuables within your walls. Just access unused switch plates, outlets or phone jacks. You can also just put in a false plate to cover a hiding place.

TIP! Keep your most valuable possessions inside your walls. You don’t have to cut pieces out of the walls.

It’s a good idea to have motion sensor lights installed. These lights will come on if someone walks near your house. You will be alerted to movement, but most importantly, it will deter burglars or at least make you aware of their presence. Test the bulbs frequently, though.

Any program to improve the security of your home should begin with complete replacement of your door locks. It might be that you have an angry ex-roommate or a bitter ex-partner, so changed locks will boost your security. It is generally cheap and may be done in a little under a day.

Don’t ever place your spare key under your mat or next you a plant box. These seem like great places for you when you misplace your key. Burglars are familiar with these hiding spots. Rather, keep your spare keys with a neighbor you trust.

TIP! If you are searching for ways to make your home more secure, one inexpensive way to accomplish this is to purchase exterior lights that have motion detectors. At night, the lights will keep things bright round the house, but they are also efficient and cost-effective ways to help your security.

Even if you only plan to be gone for a very short time, lock your house. It may be shocking, but many home invasions and burglaries occur by intruders walking through the front door that was left open. It does not take long for thieves to steal your expensive stuff.

If you are new into a house, replace all the locks. As nice as the previous person may seem, you don’t really know them. Aside from that, other people lived in the home even before the ones from whom you purchased the home.

Whenever you are landscaping your home, you should consider safety. Make sure that there is nothing obstructing your doors and windows. This way, no one can hide there if they are attempting to break into your house. Landscaped features should be set further away for safety, yet keeping beauty in mind.

TIP! Anytime you come home and notice that the door is open whenever you are quite certain you closed it, don’t enter on your own to investigate. Keep in mind that intruders could still be inside.

Do not think that expensive homes are the only targets for burglars. Thieves target houses that are easily broken into. If you use the advice mentioned in this article, you can help protect both your home and your family.
