Burglars often target homes in residential neighborhoods in hopes of obtaining valuables including money, jewelry, and electronics. Your home can easily become a target for shady characters hoping to make an easy buck. Encounters with thieves and burglars can potentially be violent and endanger your family. In order to protect your house and reduce the risk of theft, there are a few simple but important steps to take. 


1. Keep a Vehicle in the Driveway

Instead of keeping one of your cars on the street or in the garage, it's important to leave it in the driveway to make the home look occupied if you're away. Burglars often target homes where the residents are not present to ensure that they can enter and exit the home as quickly as possible.

2. Install a Motion Sensor Light

Add a motion sensor light on the front and back of your home to ensure that trespassers are visible if they attempt to approach the property. This will startle the intruders and can cause them to flee the property if they're afraid of being seen by neighbors or attempt to hide in a dim area.

3. Use a Security System

A security system is one of the most effective tools available to safeguard your home and stay on alert of unusual activity. Purchase a product like Honeywell home alarm system, which will sound an alarm if anyone attempts to break in through a window or door. This will allow you to contact the authorities and will also prompt the intruder to flee the scene.

4. Get a Dog

Most burglars aren't willing to risk getting attacked by a dog that is on the property, making it important to own a pet that will protect the home and will bark at those who are in close proximity of the home. You can also leave the dog outdoors in the backyard to reduce the risk of someone making their way onto the grounds.

5. Add a Steel Door

A steel security door will make it more difficult for intruders to kick down a door as they scope out the house. Steel screen doors are extremely durable and will make it take longer for intruders to enter the building.

Although you may not be in control of the type of people who pass by your home, you can prevent making your home a target with certain security measures that are taken. With the right tools and practices in place, you can have peace of mind knowing that your home is secure and that your family is protected.
