Great Home Security Advice


You want to know your home is always as safe as can be from intruders. This takes educating yourself on things you can do to make it more difficult for them to gain entry and things you can do to scare them off as quickly as possible if they do get in. Here are some of the things you can make good use of to better protect your home and your household:

Make your home private: Do what you can to prevent people from seeing inside your house, so they can't take inventory of what you own and gather information on its layout. Making your home more private includes doing things like having a wooden fence put up, having mirror tint put on the windows, installing security screens that are hard to see into, and having tall shrubs or full trees along the perimeter of the yard.

Have your home monitored: Have an alarm system put in with all the bells and whistles. In many cases, this will be all it takes to prevent someone from trying to enter. If they do decide to follow through, sirens will scare them off and police will be alerted.

Make yourself anonymous: Don't make it easy for people to learn more about you. This will make it harder for them to know your schedule or find other weaknesses that can help them gain entrance. Shred mail, lock your mailbox, don't announce your name on your door, don't say your last name on your voicemail, keep your social media pages private, and don't decorate your yard with things that tell the names and ages of those in the house.

Use extras to protect the house and yourself: Use properly cut pieces of wood in sliding glass door frames, use secondary locks in windows that screw into the frames, use locking parcel boxes to protect packages that get delivered to your door, and use dummy cameras anywhere you aren't able to install real ones. Keep your car remote at your bedside, so you can press it and alert neighbors to an issue.

Put a locksmith to good use: A locksmith such as A-Able Locksmiths can come to your home and help you in many ways. Have one come out to inspect your home and educate you on areas where you can amp things up. Also, have them make any improvements to your locks and have them maintain your safes.

Improving Business Security

There are a lot of things that I am incredibly patient with, but employee theft is not one of those things. Unfortunately, a few months ago I discovered that some of my employees were stealing, and it was really difficult to cope with. I knew that I had to do something to tighten things up, so I began going through and thinking about different ways to eliminate the issue. After improving record keeping and focusing on building security, things got a lot better really fast. I wanted to start a blog all about improving business so that you would know how to keep your company safe.
