Home Security: Ideas to Protect Your Home-Safety Tip Of The Week

When you think home security several things work better than others. These practices are endorsed by insurance companies and police departments the country over. Why? Because they work. When it comes to protecting your home from burglary and home invasion why not go with the winners.

Here is a list of the most effective ideas. Some of these may appear to be obvious choices-they are.

Look at your home from the outside. Are there hiding places like trees and shrubs? Are there any obvious faults like open garage doors or open doors and windows? Does it look like an easy target? The bad guys are looking for an easy mark. Make them pick someone else. Put as many obstacles in his way as possible.

Advertising. That’s what I call it when you have things like Fake Surveillance Cameras and motion activated spotlights. Then there are the real signs like “Vicious Guard Dog on Duty” or Neighborhood Watch signs that tell potential burglars to stay away.

Do the obvious. Lock all doors and windows even when you are at home. If you have an alarm make sure it is armed. If you have a peephole use it. Most people reflexively answer the door without looking first. Not a good idea!

Nonlethal weapons In the event of a home invasion having some Pepper Sprays stun guns or even a taser located in different parts of the house can make a huge difference in the outcome of a home invasion.
