Let Everyone Know That Your Home is Protected

 

Most home security systems are packaged with several ground signs and window sticker s stating something along the lines of “This home is protected by [insert name here].” You should take advantage of these accessories by placing the signs around the perimeter of your home (make sure one is placed next to the front door) and the stickers on several main windows. No burglar wants to mess with a home that’s protected with security system, as triggering an alarm will draw the attention of neighbors as well as the police.

 

Install a Security System

 

The single most important step in protecting your home like a pro is to install a security system. Installing a security system will make your home three times less likely to burglarized, attesting to their benefits.

 

Use Timed Lights To Simulate Occupancy

 

It should come as no surprise that most burglars strike when the home is unoccupied. If they suspect a family member is still inside, nine out of ten times they’ll move on. But you can’t be home 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, which is why it’s a smart idea to simulate occupancy with times lights. By connecting your lights to a timer, you can set them to turn on and off at specific times of the day. If a would-be burglar sees the lights turn on – even when no one is actually home – they’ll likely avoid trying to enter the home.

 

Lock Windows With Safety Latches

 

Granted, windows can easily be broken, but this doesn’t mean you should leave them unlocked. Make sure all of the windows in your home are locked with the safety latches. Smashing a glass windows creates a loud, distinct noise, so many burglars choose to avoid this activity. If all of the doors and windows are locked, they may move on the next home.

 

Be Conscious of Crime in Your Area

 

Whether you live on the east coast, west coast or somewhere in between, crime will inevitably occur. Turning a blind eye to it will only make your home more susceptible to burglary and intrusion, which is why it’s a good idea to check the news on a regular basis. Pay close attention to what types of crimes are occurring, where they are occurring, and how often they are occurring. If you notice a spike in burglaries around your neighborhood, you may want to take additional measures to protect your home.
