Top 10 Home Security Tips [Infographic]
When considering your home security, it helps to think like a burglar. Most burglars are not masters of deception and thievery. As such, they are looking for houses that they can access easily without being detected. Through interviewing past burglars, sociologists have found three common factors that burglars use when they determine whether or not to rob a house: time, noise, and visibility. Burglars want to get in and out of a house as quickly and quietly as possible. The longer it takes and the more disturbance there is, the more likely someone will notice and call the police. A good home security strategy will focus on increasing in all three of these areas. The following home security tips will help you improve in time, noise and visibility and hopefully encourage would-be burglars to keep on moving when they approach your home.
