Home Security Tips

    It is Safety Week here on my blog. If you missed yesterday's post about Safety Devices, you can read it by clicking here. Today's topic is Home Security Tips. Many people know that it is important to have a burglar alarm in your home. It becomes even more important to have an alarm when you have a child. Not only can that window alarm keep out a burglar but it also notifies you if your child opens the window or door. Many people know they are in a safe neighborhood, but be aware that that "safe" neighborhood can become unsafe in a matter of minutes. It is best to always keep your home prepared and be ready in case your quiet, safe neighborhood is the next neighborhood to be hit by a bunch of break ins. Here are some home security tips to help keep you and your family safe. Be sure to spread this blog with your loved ones to make sure they are practicing good safety tips as well and check back tomorrow for more on Safety Week!

Home Security Tips
- Always have a burglar alarm, either through a company or one that you installed yourself
- Be sure that your doors have good deadbolt locks, this works also when you have a toddler who likes to open doors
- Keep the outside of your house well lit by using motion sensor lights
- Keep the inside of your house well lit even when you are not home by using light timers in a couple of rooms
- Limit outside shrubbery around windows and doors, it masks if someone is trying to break in a window
- Be sure to have alarms on every window in your home; it can either sound an alarm when a window is open or even a chime, just so you are always aware when a window has been opened
- Be sure to have door chime alarms on all doors of your house.
- Have a neighborhood watch in your neighborhood. If you don't have one in your neighborhood you can start one by calling your local sheriff's department
- Always call police even if you are just suspicious of something, it is always better to be wrong about something then to have missed being able to stop a crime before it starts.


  1. The number of home burglaries traditionally spike in the summer months. I think that light timers and Fake TV (www.faketv.com) are excellent solutions to deter burglars. Also, playing anti-theft home occupancy sounds MP3 or a CD (sells on Amazon or at http://www.webensource.com/burglar_deterrent_cd/ ) in home while away is a great way to scare burglar that someone is in.

    1. Those are also great things to add to your home security devices!

  2. Good blog along with the excellent quality stuff and I’m sure this will be greatly helpful.

  3. This is very helpful. At this day and age, it's disappointing to think that no one is safe from burglars. It's really best for us to learn different home security systems to prevent this from happening. Rachelle Suezo @ ULSSecurity.com

  4. Thanks for sharing these tips! Some people may feel secure enough in their homes and think that getting an alarm system installed isn't necessary, but you never know when a burglary can occur. Better safe than sorry after all.

  5. While most of the tips is standard fare, what caught my attention was the one regarding shrubbery. While technlogy has helped us a ton in terms of security, some people tend to forget the more basic aspects, such as the condition of your surroundings. One may have the best alarm, but a good, thick tree will give the home invader ample time to disable it.

  7. I was searching about this issue as you have discussed very clearly and lovely manner that I don’t have to go now any other webpage. home security systems

  8. Thanks for the great advice. I've been trying to get a security system installed in my house for the longest time now. I don't know what it is, but I just can't get any of these systems to work. Do you guys know if there's anyone that I can hire to set up a system for me?

  9. These are useful tips and have you heard of magnetic switches? These contacts are used to monitor windows and doors. They're made up of a switch that attaches to the window or door and a magnet that is mounted on the frame.
