In these troubling, economic times, you want to do everything humanly possible to protect your home and family. Lucky for you, there are plenty of things that can be done in the home to help make everyone feel just a little safer.
Here are some tips:
1.) Have a home security system installed. Sites like www.homessecurity.com have plenty of information to help you get started. Systems offered on this site have the added bonus of providing the homeowner with 24/7 monitoring. How’s that for peace of mind?
2.) Man’s best friend. Dogs have statistically been proven to reduce the amount of anxiety in a home, and they make excellent guards. However, it is highly advisable that you seek professional help in training your canine into a guard dog.
3.) Slab doors. Any skilled intruder can find a way into and through an old wooden door. Slab doors aren’t very expensive and are made of sturdier material.
4.) Exterior lighting. Most hardware stores in the country have the kind with motion-sensors that will automatically shine a light on anything that comes into range.
5.) Small arms. This last tip isn’t advisable if you have a home with small children. Guns are serious business and if you must have one for defensive purposes, then make sure you are properly trained in the use and you lock it away somewhere safe.
