Keeping Your Family Safe From Home Invasion

It must be ingrained, humans tend to procrastinate so much you’d think it was just a part of our nature. And a lot of the time putting things off or procrastinating will not get you into too much trouble–outside of the annoyance of scrambling last minute to get things done. When it comes to home security many homeowners are the same way. There are so many reservations, questions, and concerns about costs that we put it off and don’t think about the potential of a home invasion. It’s the disposition that bad things only happen to other people and on television, and not to us, not in our own homes.

When it comes to your home and your families security procrastination may not just become an annoyance, it could cause you big trouble. The average costs of replacing items and repairing damage caused by a home invasion averages in the thousands of dollars or much more depending on the size of your home and the expenses of your home assets, not to mention any medical costs from violent encounters with your home invaders.

So if you have not given a thought to installing a home security system, specifically a monitored security system, or at least a security strategy and safe way of living for your family, then it is time to start thinking about it and start asking the proper questions.

These are just a few of the things you should think about when implementing a strategy to keep your family safe:

  • Burglars may knock at your door, well dressed and well groomed, perhaps simply asking for directions. When you open the door this gives them a quick view of your home and what’s in it. If you notice that the individual starts to ask leading questions, they may be trying to pry for information in what may seem like a friendly way. But you could just be giving them clues to the type of job you have and therefore the type of income you make, and clues as to times you are out of your home working or even going to church.
  • Keeping on lights and the television is an effective way to keep away burglars while you are out of your home. If you do not want to pay the extra power expenses you might want to consider buying an artificial television device that will simulate the lighting of an actual television.
  • Do not leave you jewelry or other expensive items in your dresser drawers. Burglars absolutely look in these areas, and believe me your socks and underwear aren’t going to keep them from looking through your dresser drawers. One place many burglars are known to avoid is your child’s bedroom.
