2. Examine each point of entry to your home. Today burglars have YouTube that has thousands of lock picking videos that a pro can get into your home with a standard lock in many cases in less than a minute. A window can be broken in less than a minute as well. Here is where you need to take a close look at adding a home alarm to your house. If someone moves a door open or breaks a window (as long as you have glass breaks or motion sensors) Your home alarm will sound in many cases scaring the burglar away and the proper authorities will be on their way to your home.

3. Be careful what you post on social media!! Going on vacation and think it’s a good idea to brag to your friends? Think again this is social media – I don’t care you have “friends only setting on” anyone can take a picture of your post with their cell and now show millions of people you are away and no one will be in your home for days.

4. Identify and remove enticements from clear views -Home invasions and home robberies happen for a reason a burglar wants to be confident that your home is worth the trouble. You need to make sure when you get that new expensive TV DVR and home appliance you do not leave boxes out front in out your home or have them visible in your trash. If a prospective robber goes past your home and sees you have new goodies in your home you may become a target. Make sure you dispose of Boxes to pricey items in black trash bags.

5. GET home security and keep it up to date!!! Adding security cameras and alarms is a great idea but they are useless if you don’t work properly. When choosing home security it’s an investment and when making this investment you need to think quickly but hard on the choice you make when you choose the company to do your home security. Shop around and be sure the company you choose is BBB accredited, read the company reviews and make sure the Central Station Monitoring you choose is UL listed.
