Home Security Tips

Today’s post is all about being security conscious and while many of these security tips may seem quite obvious many people don’t use them.

Thieves look for an easy target and will avoid any premises that may involve alerting the owner or people inĀ surroundingĀ homes.

The following are our 7 tips for being security conscious;

  • This should go without saying but never leave a spare key under a flower pot.
  • Always lock windows and doors if you’re leaving the house.
  • Never leave car keys within view of the front/back door or windows.
  • If a salesperson calls ask to see ID never let one in your home without it!
  • Keep trees and plants near windows pruned as these will allow a thief to have cover while breaking in
  • Be careful about what you post on social media sites as you never know who’s watching to see when you’l be away
  • When you move into a new home have all the locks changed. It’s better to be safe than sorry

Home Security Tips

The following are three ways in which you can scare off a burglar from coming near your home.

Motion Sensors – Motion sensors are a great way of scaring off potential thieves and can be purchased and installed cheaply. You can have these put up at your front/back door or both and are highly effective.

Guard Dog – A dog can be a brilliant way of scaring off thieves but make sure you have the time to take care of it. Stick up a “beware of dog” sign on a side gate to give prior warning to anyone looking to break in.

Alarm System – A good alarm system can be dear to have fitted but it’s probably the second most effective method of home security. Ring a number of different providers to avail of the best quote.

The most effective method of home security is being security conscious which is what we’ll focus on in tomorrow’s post
