Don’t Leave your Home Alone - Home Security Tips

According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), more burglaries occur in July and August,during the peak vacation season than in any other months of the year. Today’s modern communication technology allows you to better protect and monitor your home while away.  One of the most attractive and economical ways to monitor your home is by utilizing CCTV cameras, along with a home alarm system.
Just a decade ago no one really considered using CCTV cameras to monitor their home. Today, the migration to an all-digital technology platform, such as CCTV DVRs and cloud based CCTV applications has resulted in less cost, added convenience and easier installation.  Plus, almost all CCTV camera system today are designed to work with smart phones and iPhone technology, which provides the ability to monitor your home by simply logging into your cameras.

In addition to utilizing CCTV cameras and modern technology to deter home burglaries while you’re away,following the basic tips below can reduce your home’s vulnerability to break-ins:
  • Install bright lights over porches and walkways in the front and back of your home.
  • Ensure locks on all doors and windows are properly working and are locked.
  • Lock garage and shed doors, preferably with deadbolt locks.
  • If you have an automatic garage door, look over your shoulder before leaving the driveway to ensure the garage door has completely closed behind you.
  • Keep bushes and shrubs trimmed under windows so burglars can't hide in them.
  • Keep ladders stored in a locked shed or garage so they can't be used to climb into your home.
  • Keep shades or curtains closed over garage and shed windows.
  • Keep shades or curtains closed over your windows after dark.
  • Don't leave toys, tools and equipment in the yard that could be used to break a window or to pry open a door
  • Make your home look like someone is there. Consider using timers to turn selected lights on and off automatically. Timers are also available for outdoor water sprinklers.
  • Mow your yard before you leave town.
  • Have a family member or friend bring in your mail and newspaper while you’re away or stop the service temporarily.
  • Give a trusted family member or a neighbor a key to your home in case of an emergency.  Do not leave a key in a hiding place. Thieves know where to look.
  • If you use an answering machine, do not record a message that indicates you are out of town.
