How do you know if your home is safe and secure? Just because you lock your front and back doors and put the lock on all your windows does not mean that an inmate could not get into your house.
But you can say "Yes, but I live in a good neighborhood, and there has been no robbery as long as I can remember."
Now we have not put a man on the moon for a long time, but that does not mean that it will not happen in the future, so be careful about what you say. There are some very bad people out there looking for people who feel like you.
Most professional burglary targets and look at a block for a few days to see if there are easy choices. They look for some signs that a homeowner is safe for salmon or for a while.
Let's see if your home is safe with a few simple questions
Do you really lock all your doors and windows at night?
· Are you locking your garage door and the door leading into your house?
· Are there toys, bikes or carts in your yard?
· Are there trees or big bushes that cover some of your windows or even doors?  · Are there any unopened newspapers in the driveway?
· Has your mail been downloaded daily?
· Is there more than one light on the house, especially around 8-9 o'clock when everyone moves?
· Do you have a dog, and if so, how big is he and does he bark?
These are just some of the things that a potential theft searches for when you think of invading your house and destroying your day. We have all heard of most of these examples, but unfortunately we have become complacent until something happens and so we say "why did not I do …" but it was too late.
Here are a few cheap ways to help secure your house.
· Insert a door alarm or window alarm, where applicable. Most of these devices emit a very high annoying alert when they detect motion, which will alert you that something is wrong, especially at night. Do not forget to put an alarm where the garage door enters the house. And especially add one if you have an exit to your basement.
· Clear your forecourt and back yard. If there is toys outside of it, it usually means that homeowners are not very security conscious.
· Trees and bushes in front of windows is a good place for a theft to hide and later make its entrance to the house. Keep your bushes trimmed, preferably at the windowsill height.
· Newspapers and mail in the box are dead giveaways that a house is gone for a while.
· Most people put a light on their homes when they go out, but when people are in the house there is almost always a lot of light that burns.
· Having a dog is a great way to keep the house safe. But if you do not want to have a dog, then there's a big Electronic Barking Dog Alarm that will detect someone coming up on your walkway that starts about 20 feet from your door. It starts with a low ditch and when you get closer, it becomes so high that you think there is an attack dog in the house. Best of all, you do not have to go there or feed it! Very few thefts will mess with a dog.
