Make your house appear as busy as Grand Central Station. Thieves like empty houses when they are out in search of a place to rob. If no one is around, chances are they will have at least a short time frame in which they can rummage through your things. Make it look as if your house is always full of people by using light and tv timers to come on after dark. Burglars will always keep looking when it seems there is someone at home.
Lasers are not usually visible without a special tool so it is virtually impossible for a person to make his way through a room without crossing a beam.
The police will respond within minutes of the alarm going off. The sensors may even scare the intruder off without him or her managing to get into your house. It is best to display the alarm sign and the name of the company outside your home to deter criminals.
If you answered yes to any one of the above questions, you are in need of a home security system. Why? Because you have routine in your life and that is exactly what burglars are looking for? They don’t want to get caught any more than you want them to break in, so they will watch to see when your house is most vulnerable.
Don’t advertise your whereabouts. Social media makes it fun and interesting to announce to the world where you are. Unfortunately, it also tells would-be burglars that you’re not at home. Make sure you lock down your Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, and other settings so that only people you trust know you’re gone.
