Top tips for home protection

Good Neighborliness - Get a trusted neighbor to watch over your home in your absence. You can have him/her pass by from time to time to see if everything is in order. In addition, you can have your neighbor create the impression that your home is occupied by for instance, parking his/her car in your driveway, or collecting your mail and newspaper.

Reinforce Doors and Locks - Weak doors and locks are an invitation to burglars to target your home. The common burglar can pick a lock or kick in a door. Therefore, investing in sturdy locks and reinforcing your doors will prevent such incidences.

Install Light Timers - A timer will randomly switch lights on and off in the different rooms and make it look like you are home. This will deter any criminal casing your neighborhood from targeting your home.

Install Sufficient Lighting - Exterior lighting is very crucial in deterring and preventing break-ins and home invasions. The lights prevent criminals from hiding in the shadows or approaching your home without being noticed.

Hold Newspaper and Mail Deliveries - Newspapers and mail piling up on your porch is a sure sign that nobody is home. As such, you should contact the post office to hold your mail until you come back.

Install Video Surveillance System - IP surveillance systems enable you to access security footage remotely. As such, you can simply login at any time or location to check if all is well.

Signup for Alarm Monitoring - Home security companies offer reliable alarm monitoring services that will ensure your home is secure even in your absence. The alarm system will protect your home not only from criminals, but also wide ranging threats including smoke, fire and flooding.
