Burglary is by far the most common threat to home security. Many homeowners imagine that burglaries are just random acts. However, they are wrong because a burglar carefully chooses his target. As such, you need an effective home security plan to keep your home from becoming a target.

The Best Home Security TipsFind Home Security Tips

Fortify All Entrances

Burglars are not likely to target your home if they find it hard to break into. Such criminals want to get in and out quickly, without being detected. For this reason, you should reinforce all your doors, windows, and other entrances to your home. Install solid doors with heavy-duty, deadbolt locks - use high quality Grade-1 or Grade-2 locks that are resistant to lock-picking prying, or twisting attempts.  The average burglar will not bother with your home because it will require too much effort or skill.

Practice Good Neighborliness

Good neighbors look out for each other. Therefore, make an effort to know your neighbors and build trust. When neighbors work together, it becomes very easy to spot suspicious activity within the neighborhood. In addition, neighbors can keep normal services to your home going, even in your absence. These include collecting your mail, bills and newspaper from the mail box, mowing your lawn, and inspecting the inside and outside of your house for signs of tampering.


Interior lighting is one of the signs that burglars look for to determine if you are home. Exterior lighting on the other hand, enables you to have a clear visual of the areas surrounding your home and thus, identify any suspicious person or threat lurking nearby. As such, you should install light timers to randomly switch the lights on and off in order to give the impression of an occupied home at all times.

Install a Home Security System

A home security system is essential in any security plan. It can consist of various components including an alarm system and surveillance cameras. If used properly, these security devices can be very effective in deterring burglaries and other crimes because they increase the fear or potential of being caught.
