The entry and exit doors, security locks and windows, etcetera are some typical concerns that should be the primary areas where we need to focus when it comes to security.

Read ahead to learn about some security tips to prevent intruders from breaking and entering your house:

Keep a dog

It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.

– Mark Twain

Apart from teaching you unconditional love and simplicity, dogs are also excellent security guards. Burglars break-in and enter when everyone’s asleep or away, right? The quietness acts in their favor, so having a dog guard your house will make sure that if they enter the premises, the quietness will be disrupted immediately. The louder your dog will bark, the fewer are the chances of the burglars trying to stay on their plan because it will attract a bunch of attention from the neighborhood. Dogs are always in the ninja mode, so all you have to do is put a sign, “Beware of Dog”, outside your place to keep the intruders at bay.

Steel fences and doors

Wooden doors are easier to break than steel doors, duh! Installing industrial-grade steel doors and fences will make sure that no intruder can break-in and enter. It may seem like an unnecessary expense at first, but think about it, how peaceful will you be when you are away to know that there is a barrier between the intruder and your valuables. You can always add a rustic touch to the doors and fences to match them with the interiors.

Never leave your house empty *wink* *wink*

Empty houses are easier targets for burglars. Even if you have to go on a family vacation, you can fake a presence of someone to deceive the intruders cleverly. Switching on the lights of a particular room or controlling the music & lights of the place with your mobile phone will be enough to keep your house off the lists of burglars. Remember the sequel of the movie, Home Alone?

Trimmed landscapes

The damage can be minimized if you can spot the intruders and call in the respective authorities. This is possible only when you are able to see them, right? It is advisable to keep your landscapes trimmed to make sure that the intruder does not have a place to hide. You can push away many intruders if they feel that they can be spotted easily.

Smart security systems

Automatic timers, digital locks, wireless cameras and a digital panel to control them all are some of the many features of modern smart security systems. Not all security options are as budget-friendly as the options mentioned above, especially this one. Smart security systems may be a little over your budget, but they are necessary to keep your home safe for your loved ones and valuables. Intruders will not even dare to plan to rob your place if they know that your security system will alert you and authorities right away, let alone enter and steal your valuables. Some security systems also offer lockdown feature, which is the most feared one so far.

Keep ‘em hidden

Spare keys, security system wires, security cameras, and many such items need to be kept hidden to make sure that the intruders don’t know how to disable your systems and enter the place. Hiding the spare key in a fake rock, covering the security system wires and installing the security cameras strategically are the right way to ensure safety against intruders. These are some reasons why investing in smart security systems is a better option.
