Now that the days are getting darker and colder, it seems like thieve season just has started. But don’t worry, because we set up a list of how to keep your home safe from a burglar.
Anti-Burglar Tip 1: Adopt a dog
Thieves are more likely to avoid a home where a barking dog is present. So if you have always wanted to adopt a dog, then this is your best excuse!
Anti-Burglar Tip 2: Set up lighting spots in your garden
It’s important to keep your house from being a dark place where thieves can easily hide. So setting up several lighting spots in order to scare off thieves is definitely no luxury at all.
Two energy-saving options are:
- Installing solar lights that will automatically turn on when it’s getting dark.
- Installing motion-triggered lights that will turn on the moment any kind of motion gets detected.
Anti-Burglar Tip 3: Don’t let your mail pile up
Make sure you take care of your mail when you and your family are leaving the house for a holiday! You don’t want thieves to see your mail all piled up; they will know nobody is present at your home. You could, for example, ask a friend or neighbour to take care of your mail.
Anti-Burglar Tip 4: Use timers on your electronics
Using timers on your lights, televisions, and stereos set to turn on at various times when you’re not home can help to make it look like you are present in your home.
Anti-Burglar Tip 5: Also be sharp-eyed during the day
When we think of burglaries we usually things it happens at night, while a lot of break-ins are often happening during daylight hours. Always be sharp-eyed and always make sure you lock the doors whenever you are leaving the house.
