Top Five Home Security Tips Part 2

Oct 11, 2010   //   by   //   Blog  //  Comments Off on Top Five Home Security Tips Part 2
So last time we showed you 5 tips that could help you keep your home safe, and it was a hit, so here are 5 more. These are easy to implement as well.
  1. Did you know that most burglaries happen in the middle of the day? That’s why it is a good idea to put up drapes or window blinds on all lower level windows and doors. Windows are more likely to be broken into than doors, so keep them locked at all times, even when you are home.
  2. Everybody does it, and it comes back to bite thousands of homeowners around the US every day. We will just say it once… NEVER hide keys to your house outside. That plastic rock in your yard is a dead giveaway every time. Don’t’ say we didn’t warn you.
  3. Installing an home alarm system may sound complicated and expensive, but it doesn’t have to be. With the right professional, it can be painless and pay for itself quickly. Find a trusted, reputable, alarm installation company, and follow their advice. They do this every day, and a good company works hard to stay up to date on new technology that can protect you.
  4. Just installing a home alarm will help protect you, but it is of added value if you pay the $10 a month or so for a company to monitor your alarm. They are there for fire, medical, and any other type of emergency as well. You might not think it is worth it until you have “fallen and can’t get up”, and would love to be able to yell into your alarm panel to get some quick help.
  5. If you are really concerned about your safety and are expecting the worse, then it might be a good idea to install a cell unit backup to your alarm panel’s telephone hookup. That way if the line is cut, everything still works just like you planned.

These are our top 10 tips to keep home security manageable and simple. For all your alarm installation needs the Petrone Technology Group is here to help.
