Nobody wants to think of the negative aspects of life. It’s human nature to want to ignore those things that make life seem more difficult but home invasions and burglary are an issue that you need to keep in your mind. With more than 2.5 million break-ins a year occurring in the United States, you need to accept the possibility that your home may be targeted. So what can you do as a homeowner to help protect your home from potential robbery? Use these tips from In the Sky Surveillance to protect your home from burglary.
Secure the Doors and Windows
Most burglars either enter homes through unlocked doors or windows, or force doors and windows open. Make sure you close and lock your doors and windows, even if you’re leaving for work or just going out on errands. This is an incredibly simple step to take that can drastically reduce your likelihood of suffering from a home invasion. You can also invest in a stronger set of windows or doors that can handle an attempted intrusion. There are also reinforcement kits that you can purchase which can help to strengthen your door and protect it from robbers.
Have Plenty of Indoor and Outdoor Lighting Around Your Home
Proper lighting on the exterior of your home helps to discourage would-be thieves from breaking into your home. Try installing motion-triggered lights around the exterior of your home or look into motion-activated solar lights for places where it’s not practical to wire a light. Don’t forget your driveway. A motion-activated light aimed at your car can encourage potential vehicle burglars to move along. The interior of your home is yet another area where lighting can play a key role. Using a timer on certain lights in your home can give the illusion of someone being present in your home while you are out and about.
Protect Your Home With Security Cameras
Installing a security camera system is one of the most sure fire ways to prevent a burglary. A majority of thieves will think twice about attempting to break into a home when it has a clear security system presence on location. At In the Sky, we offer a wide range of home security cameras including home automation security cameras such as Ring doorbells and motion activated cameras.
