Protecting your home and property can be a daunting task in these difficult times. Watching the news only makes you feel more uncomfortable, but there are products available that will ease your concern.
The first thing to do when going out-of-town is to contact friendly neighbors and ask that they keep an eye on your home while your gone. Since they can’t be watching your home 24/7 you may want to buy a few home security products that will deter the criminals.
Obviously the main objective is to make you home an unattractive target for burglars so this article will be headed that direction.
The most obvious product would be an alarm system, which is monitored by a security company but this is on the costly side and many homeowners can’t afford this option. So does that mean you’re out of luck, not at all. There are many less expensive options that can deter criminals without spending a fortune.
Most burglars are interested in stealing your possessions quickly without interruption from the homeowner therefore a home that looks occupied is less of a target than one that appears empty. One item that helps the appearance of home being occupied is the TV Simulator (Fake TV). The Fake TV simulates the light output of a real television. When you are away, this conveys the impression of an occupied home far more than a lamp on a timer ever could. A Fake TV will make your home an unappealing choice for a break-in. So when a prowler sees that flickering glow that means someone is home watching television, he knows to move on to an easier target.
Motion detecting lights and alarms also help aid in the deterrence of burglaries for obvious reasons burglars don’t want to be seen roaming around a home at night.
An Electronic Barking Dog Alarm is also another great home security deterrent. Why would someone enter a home that is protected by a barking, growling dog? A barking dog alarm works even through thick doors, walls, and glass and will begin barking like a true to life angry German Shepherd when an intruder comes within 20 feet of the door.
Security stickers and security signs all help warding off would be criminals to another location that appears more vulnerable.
There are many home security products that will protect you and your home such as door stops, door braces, window locks and more. All of these items will protect your home plus give you a more secure feeling.
