Home security is something that every home owner should be concerned about, even more so if you live in an area that is known for being dangerous. There are a lot of measures you can take on your property to ensure that nobody gets in if you don’t want them to like investing in things like a turnstile gate and alarms.
Alarms should be the first thing on your list when you’re making sure your home is safe. If you can’t afford an alarm or don’t want one for whatever reason, there’s a trick that many people use to fool potential thieves from thinking that there is an alarm. Installing a blink LED light above your front door will create the illusion of an alarm and will deter most home invaders from attempting to break in. Install more of these lights at the back of the house to make sure robbers see them, but it is always better to have a real alarm since some thieves know of this trick and are willing to take the risk.
One of the best forms of security you can have is a big guard dog and a smaller dog along with it. Big dogs will scare thieves away, but smaller dogs are a lot more likely to bark, this scaring thieves away if they come near and alerting you that something is wrong. Make sure you train your dogs not to eat things they find on the ground though, since thieves have been known to throw poisoned treats or treats with glass and wire to kill dogs over walls before breaking in to get rid of guard dogs. By training your dog not to eat these poison things, thieves who do break in will have a big surprise coming.
