Six Simple Home Security Tips
Updated: Sep 28
No matter where you live, it is always a great idea to think about the security of your home. You should always remember that your home comes first and the safety of your home really matters. I am very sure you do not want a situation whereby your family’s security is threatened because you did not take necessary steps.
I will give you some basic security tips you should know to keep your home safer.
1. Secure your garage windows and doors. Most people think that the front and back door is the only thing that needs to be kept secured. They forget that the garage is also part of their home and they need to secure it. You should get a locksmith that would help you with securing the garage so no one would be able to break-in.
2. Do not tempt burglars. Have you ever heard the cliché “keep your things to yourself” (I guess it is not a cliché because I made it up myself) but you should learn to keep your things to yourself. If you just bought a fancy car, a plasma tv, expensive jewelry, it is alright, but you don’t have to show it to the world and attract burglars.
3. Always cancel deliveries when out of town. There is nothing more interesting and sweet for a thief than to steal when no one is home. You do not have to tell everyone that you are leaving town. Just cancel all deliveries when you are out of town, and when you get back, you will get them back.
4. Change locks when moving to a new home. Don’t make the mistake of not changing locks when you move to a new home. You don’t know who the old owner was, and even if you do, you don’t know who he/she has given the key too. So get a locksmith and change locks when you get to a new place.
5. Keep your yard well lit. Stop keeping your yard dark. All thieves and burglars prefer to work in the dark. So if you keep your yard well lit, burglars won’t be able to enter your home in the fear of getting caught.
6. Don’t put your address or name in your wallet or keys. You can misplace your keys and wallet anytime, so don’t make the mistake of putting your address or name in your keys or wallet.
