Alarm systems Aren’t 100% - Alarm systems can be great security measures to homes, but your first line of defense is yourself so be aware of your surroundings.
Buy a Camera – Installing a camera on your property if you can afford it is a great security measure. They can be used in countless different situations so it’s always a good idea to install a camera or cameras on your property.
Cover Your Windows – One easy way to protect your home is covering your windows. This will not only help with energy costs but stop potential thieves from seeing valuable items they may want inside your home.
Be Careful of Contracts – If you’re going to get an alarm system make sure that you don’t sign a long-term deal. It’s always important to have the freedom to change if you’re not happy with your service provider for any home security aspect.
Always Ask Around Before You Hire – It’s important to ask those around you who you trust who they use for certain services. This will allow you to cut through the untrustworthy and bad companies and get only the best ones to service you and your property.
Turn on When You Leave – If you have an alarm system or you don’t leave a light or a Tv on when you’re not around to make it seem like someone is home. This is not always necessary but can be helpful if you live in an area with a high rate of burglary.
