Home invasions are usually very traumatizing since they occur in the presence of the homeowner. Most of the reported incidences paint a gloomy picture owing to the level of violence meted out on innocent victims.

How to keep out intruders from your homeHow To Protect Against Home Invasion – Suffolk County Consultations

1. Basic Precautions

You don't need to spend a fortune in preventing home invasion. Sometimes, observing simple precautions can help you secure your home. These include:

  • Peepholes: Always check through the peephole to confirm the identity of visitors before opening the door. If there is a knock on your door but you either can’t see anyone through the peephole or recognize the visitor, don’t open it.  
  • Reinforcement: Fortifying all doors, windows and other entry points to your home makes it difficult for an attacker to force their way in. You should also reinforce the door frames, hinges and door jambs.
  • Locks: Unlike burglars who would rather wait for you to leave, home invaders usually attack when you are at home. For this reason, you should ensure that you lock all doors and windows when you are at home. 
  • Lighting: Poor lighting encourages criminals to lurk about waiting for the opportune moment to strike. Improving the lighting in and around your home will scare away such criminals since the likelihood of being detected is high.

2. Home security System

Installing a security system is a good way to deter criminals from attacking your home. An alarm system protects your home from intruders and alerts you any time an intrusion is detected. Always activate your alarm when at home. Video Surveillance Systems on the other hand, help in scaring away would be attackers for fear of being identified. The security footage also provides crucial leads and evidence that can be used for tracking, investigating and convicting criminals.

Sometimes, it might not even be necessary to install an operational security system. You can dupe criminals by prominently displaying home surveillance or alarm system decals. Dummy alarms or dud security cameras located conspicuously will give the impression that your home has a working security system in place.
