Using Home Improvements To Upgrade Your Home Security

Women living alone who are not comfortable with some form of self protection must learn all they can about home security. Rather than living in fear, there are many things you can do to improve things. This article has great home security advice.

Latch Locks

Do not be reluctant to meet your neighbors. Talk to the people who live in your neighborhood. Watch their houses, and ask if they’d do the same. It does not necessarily pay to steer clear of gossip. You might actually learn a thing or two concerning people that have been hanging around.

TIP! When the windows in your family room are facing the street, it is best to close your curtains every night before you go to bed. You want to avoid having people peek in the windows.

Try to stay away from spring latch locks. These locks can be opened easily with a credit card. This is achieved by sliding the card into the space between the latch and the door. This causes the lock to click open. Add a deadbolt to doors with spring-latch locks.

Your trash could determine how safe your home is. If a would-be thief spies a big-screen plasma TV box on the curb, they may decide to return later. Some burglars will even view refrigerator or washing machine boxes as an indication that you have more cash and valuables inside.

Ask about different contract lengths that your home security company may offer. These lengths can be both good and bad. A long contract may lock you in even if you choose to sell the house or want to stop the services, but it can result in a lower bill every month. If you want more freedom, it is best to purchase a more expensive but shorter contract.

TIP! Don’t ever place your spare key under your mat or next you a plant box. Though you might think that you’re giving yourself something you could use to get into your house when you’ve lost your keys, you’re actually inviting intruders inside your house.

Although locks that are sealed inside are fine, they won’t be too useful if you cannot lock them from outside. The best lock of choice is always a deadbolt, and those which have keys on both inside and out ensure they can’t be opened by a burglar.

Request information from your local law enforcement agencies about home protection packages. There are many that offer programs that include items, such as home inspection, how to use engraving tools to mark code numbers to identify valuables if yours are stolen, and protective measures advice. Discuss the possibility of this sort of program with your police department.

Choose a reliable security company that goes further than selling a product. For example, the best home security companies offer a home inspection to design your system and give you and your family excellent safety suggestions. You might need to modify your landscaping, install deadbolts or upgrade your windows. This comprehensive solution will help keep robbers at bay by limiting their access to your home.

TIP! A paper shredder can be a good security investment. You’d be shocked at how many times thieves search trash looking for personal documents to see when you’re not home so that they can get into your home.

Secure valuables that are truly irreplaceable. Items like passports, family photos, financial records, expensive jewelry and legal documents are best kept in a secure location. A floor safe is a great place to keep these items within the home. You may even choose to store them outside your home in safety deposit box.

Don’t give anyone an opportunity to see inside your garage in order to ward off robbers. Use frosted, adhesive backed plastic to cover the windows. You can purchase this at a home improvement store. Never leave the front door open for very long.

As you work on your home’s landscape, don’t forget about safety. Windows should be free from obstructions like trees, shrubs and fencing. If criminals know you can see them, they are less likely to break in. Have your landscape several feet away from your house for better safety.

TIP! While many people avoid the neighborhood busybody, you should be friendly with them. If there is someone lurking around your house, your neighbors can be your eyes when you are not home.

Wear Masks

Video is a criminal’s worst nightmare. Mostly, only the criminals in movies wear masks. A lot of home burglars do not wear masks due to the fact that they don’t intend to allow anyone to see them. If they notice any sort of surveillance system, chances are they will leave.

If you have a garage, increase your home security by using it to house your car, rather than just for storage. This will keep it away from thieves and vandals. Hiding the car from plain sight can keep possible intruders from figuring out when you’re home and also when you are not.

TIP! If you own valuable objects, keep them far from the windows. If people cannot see valuable objects, they are not as likely to try a break-in.

Many instances have occurred where people have knocked asking for help but instead mean to cause harm. If you don’t know the person on the other side of the door, don’t open it. You can call for help for them if necessary. If you feel uncomfortable with the situation, don’t hesitate to call the police.

Eliminate dead vegetation and rotting wood from the yard each summer. These items have a higher chance of catching fire during the hot months. Clear your yard often if you want to prevent a fire from starting.

Be sure not to use your birthday as the password on your door lock’s numeric key pad. Your birthday is readily available for burglars to find. Try making the number one that can be remembered by doing a match equation in order to remember that equation instead.

TIP! Beware giving keys to your maid unless the service has your absolute trust. Make sure you know they are legitimate before giving out the key.

Making your home a safer place doesn’t necessarily take an expensive security system. You can find out some great alternatives that are much cheaper that help keep the criminals away. Be sure and use these tips in order to adequately protect your home.
