UnCategorized Home security is an issue that concerns everyone, regardless of geographic location. There is no place within the civilized world that is free of the risk of an unwel.e visitor breaking in to steal possessions or worse, do harm to the residents of the home. There are many security measures a homeowner can take from the simple and inexpensive, to the .plex and costly. All of them have their merits and drawbacks. It’s worth taking a look at those pros and cons to maximize the safety and security of your home and family with measures that fit your needs and budget. Most burglars are seeking your possessions, not confrontations. This makes lighting and and the appearance of your home being occupied an excellent security measure. Any signs that the house is unoccupied, such as newspapers in the yard or mail in the box that isn’t picked up daily, may be an invitation for a break-in. At night, a simple motion detector connected to outside lighting can be enough to deter a break-in. For more advanced options, home automation systems can allow you to open and close drapes or blinds and turn lights off and on from any location in the world to give the appearance of occupancy. A dog can be a valuable asset in home protection. One doesn’t need a large attack-trained dog for great security, in fact, without the training and experience in handling such an animal, this is not at all re.mended, especially with children in the home. In truth, little Fluffy can do the job beautifully by barking to alert the homeowner to a potential problem. It also signals an intruder that his presence is known ac.panied by a hasty retreat. Alarm systems are a popular and effective home security measure. With motion detectors, door and window indicators, and loud alarms that alert the entire neighborhood as well as automatic notification of police, often just the sign in a window or in front of the house alerting a potential burglar of the presence of the system is adequate deterrent. There are drawbacks. One is that such systems can be set off without cause, sometimes even by a loud crack of thunder. There isn’t any substitute for sound locks on doors. With or without any of the security measures mentioned above, if a burglar wants to get in, the only thing that will stop or slow him down is the strength of the doors and locks. Any lock that can be accessed with a key from outside can be "picked" or over.e by a thief. A lock that is operated from the interior alone is much more effective and secure to protect the family inside. If you only have a small budget for security, this is the place to start.
