Home Security Tips You May Not Have Considered

Consider these important home security precautions.

When it comes to securing your property, there are many solutions out there. From locking the doors every night to installing motion-sensitive lighting, protecting your property should be high on your list of priorities. We take a look at some ways in which you can go above and beyond to protect your home and assets.

Get a door without a letterbox

Although this sounds like a hassle, letterboxes can be a significant security risk to your home. Look at choosing a door without a letterbox built-in and install, instead, an exterior mailbox fitted next to the door itself.

Pack your car last minute

It’s tempting to pack up the car for a trip the night before you set off, but doing so can show potential thieves that your vehicle is full of belongings and that your home is about to be temporarily unoccupied. Stack your bags by the door instead and pack up the car in the morning.

Keep a spare set of car keys by your nightstand

If you hear a disturbance in the middle of the night, you can quickly hit the panic button on your car’s keyset. This will set off the alarm and likely scare off potential car thieves.
