Home invasions are all too common in today’s world. Although there are lots of sophisticated home security systems on the market, none are foolproof. To lower your risk of losing everything to a home invasion, you can apply these simple tips.
Avoid Obvious Hiding Places. While the goal is, of course, to prevent a burglar from gaining access to your home in the first place; it is also important to think like a burglar might once he or she is inside. Thieves know that a nightstand or dresser in the master bedroom is where jewelry, weapons; and other valuables are most commonly stored. Best is buying and installing a proper safe (make sure it’s anchored so a burglar can’t simply walk away with it). Another option is to store non-dangerous valuables (not weapons) in an unusual location; such as inside a high cabinet in a child’s bedroom. Most thieves are in a hurry and will not spend as much time searching kids’ rooms.

Use Passive Deterrents. Home security signs are available, even if you don’t actually have a security system; and can make a highly effective passive deterrent. Other ideas include motion-sensitive lights around doors and even a Beware of Dog sign. Some women living alone like to keep men’s work boots, a large dog food dish, and a big leash on the patio; to give the impression that both a big dog and a big man may be present. Remember that most burglars look for the easiest target; and may not find it worth the trouble of finding out just how well-protected your home actually is.
Hide the Alarms. Security alarms are most commonly placed just inside the front door of the home. However, if there are nearby windows, it can be a simple matter for a would-be intruder to break the window; and shut off the alarm. Increase your alarm’s effectiveness by putting it somewhere that is completely out of reach until someone is fully inside your home.
