Residential home security
To protect a home from break-ins, implement a few low cost and easy home security tips to act as deterrents to thieves.
General Home Security Tips
There are a few residential home security tips that apply for everyone, whether they are a homeowner or a renter.
- One of the best and most common home security tips is to install a home security system. Home security systems really are worth the extra cost. In addition to alerting home owners to break-ins, they also alert home owners to fires in the home.
- Make friends with surrounding neighbors, or at least be friendly enough that they recognize all family members. Let them know when the family will be out of town and ask them to watch the house. Knowing who belongs and who doesnâ€™t is an important part of any residential home security plan.
Outdoor Home Security Tips
Residential home security doesnâ€™t stop indoors. Implement several outdoor deterrents as well.
- Trim trees or bushes that obscure the home from the road. These are great places for thieves to hide as they attempt to open doors and windows. Make the yard as visible as possible to deter break-ins.
- Install a tall fence around the home with a gate that locks. Don’t make it easier than it has to be for a would-be burglar.
