Home Protection

The first thing we will do is getting the house prepared. Make sure you have secure bars or locks on all of your windows. Regular vertical windows will usually have a lock that's a bit too high to reach on the outside from the ground which means the windows has to be broken in order to access the lock. Be sure to install these locks, and that they are locked and working.

A door brace should be installed on sliding patio doors. Motion-activated flood lamps should be used on the more remote outer perimeters of your property. Then put some of your home's lights on timers.

They should be lights that you use regularly when you are at home. These should also be lights that you normally turn on in the evening and potentially leave on the entire night.

For thieves who might be monitoring your home, nothing deters them better than a light that comes on at 2 am and then goes back off 15 minutes. There are very affordable timers that are available and most of them have multiple settings for turning lights off and on during a 24 hour time period.

A quality self-contained wireless system does the same thing that an alarm company does. The system can automatically dial the police and auto-dial you as well to disarm or verify the alarm system. If you happen to be at home, then you will wake up by a loud alarm and it will startle any intruder and cause him to flee the scene.

In urban areas, there is an average of 8 to 11 minute response time from the police unless a police car just happens to be driving by your house. You don't want to add any more time for notifying a security company, that then verifies the alarm and contacts the police. Experienced burglars know how to get in and out of a house quickly. It usually doesn't work to hide keys on the outside of a house, since thieves know where all of the most likely hiding places are.

Visual access should be left to the front and back of your house, so your neighbors as well as you can keep watch.

Your external flood lamps will be much more effective when burglars don't have anywhere to hide. Don't put your house keys in any vulnerable areas like the seat or dash of your car. A thief can break a window or get a car door open within seconds. With all of the information that is available on the internet these days, your address can be obtained from your car license plate.

If your car keys are left with a parking attendant or repair shop, separate your car keys from your house keys. You should consider using pool alarms, motion activated alarms, as well as window and door alarms. Using a diversion safe for hiding your values like jewelry is also a good idea. If your alarm sounds before you find out what has happened, there are three things that you need:

-First, call the police from your cell phone.

-Second, You will also need a bright flashlight so that you can shine it into the eyes of the intruder if you end up confronting him.

-Third, Pepper Spray or Mace to disable the intruder, to enable you to escape and allow the police take charge once they arrive
