Need Home Security? Read On For Useful Tips

You know that your home is important. You sleep there, eat there, and enjoy your life there. Tha'ts why you need to keep it safe, as well as everyone inside your home. Here are some things you can do to help your home stay secure, so that you can keep feeling safe.

Choose a deadbolt lock over a spring-latch lock. The spring-latch lock is much easier for burglars that are experienced in "loiding." Loiding refers to the method where a plastic card like a credit card is slipped against the latch tongue in order to depress it, which will unlock your door. The deadbolt will prevent an attack like this. Deadbolts are vulnerable only when there is plenty of space in between your door and your door frame for intruders to use hacksaws or power tools.  Keep lights on in your home or put the stereo on when you are going on vacation. This is important as it makes it look like someone is there at the house, so burglars will refrain from taking action with a potential robbery. This will keep your house safe and protected.

The company you choose to purchase and install your home security system is important. You want to make sure the company has the most reliable system and knows what they are doing when it comes to installation. To find a good company, ask friends and families or look for online reviews  Walk out to the street and then turn back to your home. What can you see through the windows? Is there anything valuable in view? If so, you need to move the objects out of sight. They simply give burglars a reason to target your home. If relocating the objects isn't a possibility, invest in shades or curtains to obscure them from view.

If your security system alarm goes off and scares the burglar away, you can be fined for a false alarm. If the police send someone to check your property in response to a security alert and no burglar is there, it is considered a false alarm. You can be fined and charged because your security system worked.  Install motion sensing lights. Darkness is a potential thief's best friend. Make sure all potential entrances to your home are covered by a motion sensing light. These lights will turn on automatically when movement triggers them, making it difficult for anyone to sneak around your property. Thieves will quickly move on to an easier target.

When people come to your door unexpectedly, ask who is there before you open the door. Even if you live in a neighborhood that does not have a high crime rate, it is still a good idea to be careful. If the person on the other side is hesitant about replying, never open the door.

Video Surveillance

Cameras are a great way to protect your home and family. If you make the cameras noticeable, just having them on your property is enough to deter many criminals. High quality video surveillance systems have gone down in price in recent years and are affordable for almost any budget now.  The nightmare of burglars begins with video surveillance. Don't believe everything you see on TV or at the movies. Many people who burglarize homes don't cover their faces at all since they have no intention of ever being seen. Just seeing surveillance will often cause them to leave.

  1. I never really thought about leaving the radio on while on vacation. Simple yet brilliant tip!! Doing this from now on :)

  2. This is so important, we have the ability to monitor our house when away. This came in perfectly just today when I was home alone with my youngest and not feeling well at all. My husband is trying to get back but was out of state on business. He called and when I did not answer, he was able to go online and see that we were okay and I just did not hear the phone. There are so many reasons to use these systems, not just for when you are away.
