How to Keep Burglars Away from Your Home
When you want to protect your home from burglars, make sure that you use these tips to keep your home burglar-free.
Burglars are always on the lookout for a home from which to steal. Is your home on their radar? It’s usually hard to tell until it’s too late. Instead of relying on your trap-making ingenuity from having watched Home Alone and Home Alone 2: Lost in New York countless times in the 90s to protect your home from burglars, use these practical and liability-free tips to help keep your home safe.
Ways to Keep Your Home Safe from Burglars
Avoid Mentioning Travel on Social Media
Social media is great for sharing pictures with all your friends, but make sure that you post them once you are back home. By posting about it on your wall, you are essentially sending a “THERE IS NO ONE AT MY HOUSE” signal to everyone–including those with whom you may not be all too familiar.
Lock Your Doors and Windows
Before you leave, it is important that you lock all windows and doors. Deadbolt locks are the most secure because they have the most reinforcement. But it is important that you purchase a high-quality deadbolt lock, to secure your home. Spending a bit more on a lock now will potentially save you thousands later.
Hiring a patrol service for your neighborhood can be one of the most effective ways to deter burglars from your neighborhood and home. An active patrol in your neighborhood represents a strong visual deterrence with a well-branded security vehicle.
