Wonder About Home Security No More – Read These Tips!

It is up to homeowners to take proactive steps to ensure the safety of the home and its inhabitants. Home invasions can be quite common, as well as natural disasters that damage houses. The following article has some great information to help keep your home safe and secure.

Make your home look occupied at all times. You can buy timers to have radios, TVs, lights and other electronics go off and on at different times. This makes it look as though people are home no matter what. This will help to deter burglars.

Use your dog as the protector of your spare key. Of course, your dog has to be an outdoor dog (or you at least need to have a doggy door) for this to work. Just hide a spare house key on the inside of your dog’s collar. Then when you need an extra key, you will be able to access this one.

TIP! You should only provide a house cleaner your key if you completely trust them. When giving your house cleaner the key to your home, you need to be sure that they are reputable and honest.

Purchase a safe to lock all of the extremely valuable items in your home in one place. This will help to keep your jewelry and other valuables secured in the event of a break in. Keep the safe hidden in a hard-to-find location like an attic or a basement closet.

When you decide to purchase a home alarm system, make sure you comparison shop. Several different firms may offer similar protection for wildly divergent prices. Make sure to obtain quotes from a minimum of three companies prior to deciding on a final one.

If you will be away from your house for an extended period of time, turn the ringers off for all your phones. When burglars hear phones ringing for an extended period of time in a home, they know that there is no one there to answer.

TIP! Any program to improve the security of your home should begin with complete replacement of your door locks. Whether you just bought your home or someone just moved out that you were living with, this is an important step to any new situation.

Don’t let strangers into your home. Nowadays, thieves are creative when thinking of ways to get homeowners to open a door and let them in. Create the rule that you just open a door to people that you expect to arrive.

Your garage needs to be secure. People often worry about people getting in through attached garages, but you have a solution. A C-clamp placed on the garage door track will stop it from opening when you don’t want it to.

When dealing with companies that install home security systems, it’s important to trust your gut. This is particularly true if you’re uneasy with those that install your actual system. If you are unsure, contact the security company to make sure that the installer was actually sent by them. Ultimately, the whole point is for you to have peace of mind.

TIP! People in rural areas are not usually as worried about burglaries as people in cities. Some think residents of the country are even more vulnerable because there are no close neighbors.

In summer, take care to trim back branches and plants near the house. These can quickly become fire hazards when hit by direct sunlight, placing your house at risk. Make sure your yard is clean for the sake of your safety – and that of your family!

Annual check-ups are important for alarm systems. Get a professional in to check it out. There are many things that can be problematic with regards to home security systems, like wayward wild animals and the environment. Sometimes, you may need a professional to locate the problem.

If you purchase big-ticket items, don’t throw their boxes in the trash before trash day. Having these boxes outside of your house will give robbers the temptation of robbing your house.

TIP! Screen the references of anyone who would have access to your house. You need to do background checks in order to find out about their criminal history.

Avoid being shy. Engage your neighbors in conversation. Look out for their property, and see if they will look out for yours. Don’t discount what sounds like idle gossip. You could learn important security information, such as if strangers have been lurking around the neighborhood.

If you reside in a small town or rural area, then you might not be as worried about someone breaking into your home as city dwellers may be. With neighbors so far away, it may seem like a tiny risk. Others feel rural residents have a lower risk of being burglarized.

Perform landscaping for your home which enhances your home’s safety. Do not obstruct doors and windows with plants or furniture. This way, no one can hide there if they are attempting to break into your house. Plan these features for further away from your home.

TIP! Before signing up for home security, find out how long they’ve been in business. Find a home security company that has a good reputation and many years of experience to get excellent service.

After making major (i.e. expensive) purchases, don’t dump the packaging out front if your next scheduled garbage pick-up is several days away. Exposing the box to view ahead of time signals a burglar that he will find this item in your home.

Were you aware of how valuable your house wires are? Many people have their wires stripped each year. Experienced criminals can make a decent amount of money quickly by stripping copper wiring off of houses in order to sell it at a scrapyard. Be sure to hide your wires or make sure they are hard to get to.

Keep your outdoor areas well lit. Burglars prefer the cover that night provides their criminal activities. Add lights to any areas you believe are potential entry points for burglars. This extends to doorways, porches, garages and lower windows.

TIP! Invest in a high quality paper shredder. 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.

When you own a home, you must focus on securing it. You’ve just been giving some great home security tips. Use these ideas to boost your home’s safety.
