Safety & Security from 24 Security, LLC
Most of us consider our home our heaven, the place we go to feel safe. But every year, burglars violate over 2 million homes. That is a burglary every 15 seconds!
Many times, the victims are careful people who think they are doing all the right things.
Below is a list that came from ~ a reformed burglar. These just a few of the mistakes that he says homeowners make.
Top Mistakes That Make Homeowners Prime Targets for Burglars
Mistake # 1: Leaving the burglar alarm off when you are running out for a few minutes. Nearly all houses that are robbed have alarm systems that were not turned on! Always set your alarm even if you are running out for 15 minutes.
Mistake #2: Hiding valuables in the bedroom. Keep money or jewelry in a home safe that has been bolted down or in a safe-deposit box.
Mistake #3: Getting a big dog, most breeds are not barkers. Small dogs are "yappers". they get a lot of noise, so consider small dogs as well as large for protection.
Mistake #4: Hiding windows with landscaping. Tall bushes and shrubs allow burglars to jimmy windows without being seen. Keep all bushes trimmed to below window.
Mistake #5: Leaving the lights on. A light that stays on all the time is no more of a deterent than a dark house. In fact, it helps burglars see better once they are inside. Better, use timers to turn lights on and off.
This is just a short list of things we as homeowners may overlook.
