January marks the month where rekindled New Years resolutions make their debut. While many become lost ambitions as the year passes on, don’t let security be the one to fall to the wayside. If you don’t have a security system, you’re putting yourself at risk. Follow these resolutions to stick to and you’ll find yourself better off in the New Year.
Get a security system installed
The ground floor, or foundation for your home safety starts with a security alarm. Whether you’re a business owner or residential customer, security alarms are simple devices that don’t cost much to get installed. Many times, you pay a small monthly fee, which pales in comparison to the effects of a burglary. Start small and get a security system installed. Delco Alarm Systems can help with this!
Do A Walk-Through
A security technician is a great resource to get a professional opinion on weak spots on your property, but if you feel confident take a walk around your house to see where you could better secure your home. Look through your house for potential passages that could easily be accessed by burglars. If you were trying to get in your house, where would you go?
Buy A Fireproof Safe
A safe, whether bolted to your ground floor or not, is something to not only stop burglars from accessing your belongings but protect them in the event of a fire. Every home should have a fireproof safe. For those who do have one, make sure all of your important documents are in your safe and accounted for.
Buy Timers For Your Lights
It’s no coincidence that most burglaries happen at night; the more light the better. All it takes to tip off a robbery and spoil a thief’s plot is just a passerby looking into your home. A little bit of light can go a long way. Timers are cheap security purchases that will never go bad and make your house less desirable to enter.
As simple as it sounds, the smallest mistakes, such as forgetting to lock your car or hiding your key in an easy spot are the most common reasons for theft. Be smart and before you leave your home, make sure you’re not making yourself an easy target.
