Staying Safe: Home Security Tips Anyone Can Follow

It is a good idea to have a home security system, especially if you have a lot of valuables in your home. Upgrading your home security gives you protection from burglars. The following tips can help put you in the safest position possible.

Do you keep your dog outdoors when you are away from home? Your pet might just be the perfect place to stash a spare key to your home. Simply put the key onto your dog’s collar so that robbers cannot locate it. This is an especially good idea if your dog doesn’t like strangers, and gives you easy access to get in your home.

Your dog can keep your spare house key for you. Of course, your dog has to be an outdoor dog (or you at least need to have a doggy door) for this to work. Simply affix a spare key to the collar of the animal. You’ll always have a backup plan if you lose your key!

TIP! Providing a key to the person cleaning your home can be acceptable, but you must be sure they are honest and worthy of your confidence. If you do give out a key to such individuals, be certain you know their reputation for honesty.

Don’t let everyone in your social network know that you are leaving the home unprotected for your vacation trip; especially the people who you aren’t familiar with. This can indicate that your home will be free and vulnerable during the time.

When you’re picking out home security equipment and services, don’t forget to ask your friends and family for help. Your loved ones likely have dealt with this situation before. Do your research; it will help you make a good decision in the end.

Don’t talk about your vacations on social media. If you do, burglars will know you’re not home and strike.

TIP! Your friends may have some great advice for choosing the right company. Other people are sure to have opinions and experiences to share.

Do not invite strangers into your home. Even if their story is compelling, they need assistance or want to sell you something. Some will come to your door just to determine how secure it is, and they may return later if they think they can easily enter your home.

Don’t open your door when strangers are knocking. You have no way of knowing if the stranger on the other side of the door wishes to do you harm. Never open the door to anyone you do not know.

Don’t let strangers enter your home. Even if their story is compelling, they need assistance or want to sell you something. It’s quite possible that your charming guest is only interested in evaluating the security of your home; if they find it lacking, they may be back later to relieve you of some of your possessions.

TIP! Always change the locks if you have someone move out of your home. It might be that you have an angry ex-roommate or a bitter ex-partner, so changed locks will boost your security.

Police Department

Contact the local police department to find out more about the protection programs they offer. 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.

If you’ve got skylights, don’t neglect them when ensuring your home’s security. Although skylights provide your home with a lot of light, it is also very helpful for burglars to break in. Any skylights in your home should be secured with strong hardware.

TIP! The walls are a perfect hiding place. This is a great way to hide jewelry, for example.

If you reside in the country, you may be less worried about break-ins than urban dwellers are. There are differences between large cities and homes located in the countryside. Others feel rural residents have a lower risk of being burglarized.

Walls can serve as a handy hiding place. Keep small, valuable items inside the walls of your home. You could use a phone jack, electrical outlet or a switch plate. Anything not used currently makes a good spot for hiding.

When you landscape your house, make it safe. There should be no plants or greenery in front of doors or windows. If they can be seen, potential burglars will not be able to use them as hiding places before breaking in. Plan your greenery and shrubbery for areas away from the direct path to your home to add beauty while still keeping your house safe.

TIP! What do you need to personally feel safe? A home security system is a good idea; however, it is not the perfect solution for every home. Depending on your neighborhood and your household, you might well be better served by a reliable guard dog or self-defense training than by high-tech gadgetry.

Use the space in walls to store your prized possessions. You don’t have to cut pieces out of the walls. There are many places in your home that are pre-cut and available. You could removed the wiring from an electric socket that you aren’t using, and stash jewelry inside it.

Be prepared for the worst contingency when it comes to criminal threats. You should not become paranoid about home invasions, but keep in mind that you can avoid dangerous situations by protecting yourself. Keep these tips in mind if you want to improve your home’s security in order to protect your family.

Never enter your home if you arrive and find the door open. Your home and the area surrounding it may still be in danger. Call the police, then wait until they get there to do anything else.

TIP! If you do not already have a paper shredder, you may want to think about investing in one. You would be surprised at how often thieves look through trash to find personal information to find out when you will be away from home so they can break in.
