The Basic 5 Steps to Ultimate Home Security
Nothing is more important to most of use than the safety and security of ourselves and loved ones. So many of us don’t take security into consideration until its to late. I don’t know if there is a way to fact check this fun fact, but I was once told the average victim of burglary or home invasion installs an alarm on their residence within 72 hours of the crime.
Its great they are taking that small step to ensure their families safety, however if they were focused on being proactive instead of reactive they could have potentially prevented themselves and their family from being a victim.
I wanted to keep this short enough that most would take the time to read it, but long enough to give the needed information so I decided to break it down to the infamous 5 D’s of home security. If you haven’t heard the 5 D’s of security before, please take notes and complete a self-evaluation of where you are weakest. If you have continue to read and comment below your thoughts or opinions.
So what steps should you take?
When we think of detection, two forms of detection that come to mind are: low tech and high tech. Most of you can probably get a good idea of some high tech methods of detection such as basic alarms, driveway motion alarms and motion detecting lights. However what are some basic free and or cheap low tech methods of detection. First and for most our neighbors are our biggest allies! If you don’t know your neighbor get to know them. Once you find out that they aren’t quite as creepy as you once thought then trim your bushes! If your neighbor knows who should and shouldn’t be at your house and they are able to see your house, this is often times the best form of detection!
Placing things such as gravel around your windows or walkways makes noise that can alert you or a dog that an intruder is nearby.
Delaying a criminal into your residence employees a lot of the same techniques that you would use to “deny” access. Good locks, security window film, thorny bushes and simply LOCKING doors and windows. I can not begin to tell you all the burglaries I worked while in law enforcement where the criminal just opened an unlocked door, rather it be your house or vehicle.
