1. Make an investment in your home’s protection
Investing in your home’s protection is also beneficial to your community. When you implement a complete home security system, you’re not only dissuading crime at your property, but you’re also helping to keep potential burglars out of your neighborhood. Fortunately, today’s smart homes supply more security measures than ever before. You can have smart lighting switch on automatically - a great choice when you’re away - and even check footage from your surveillance system directly from your mobile. Some exterior cameras and video doorbells even have incorporated preventive measures to ward off invaders. Aligning your property to a round-the-clock monitoring team is another essential precaution and results in a prompt response if a crisis arises.
2. Your neighbors are a vital aspect of your community - get to know them!
You may be surprised by the number of people who truly aren’t close to their neighbors. Building a network of support within your neighborhood is vital. You’ll be able to perform tasks for each other, like bring in the mail on vacations, care for animals, and even take notice of odd disturbances. Some neighborhoods might have their own social networking page. Make sure you’re connected, as this is a great way to stay in the know about what’s taking place in your area.
3. Don’t neglect your property
There’s something to be said about pride of ownership, but keeping up your home and its surroundings has a safety component too. A neglected yard could be enticing to prospective intruders, as it indicates you might be careless about your home’s safety as well. Additionally, wild trees and shrubs near access points can produce unintended hideouts. Keep your property well maintained, and think about using surveillance devices to closely look after your exterior. Pairing your security cameras with motion-detecting lighting is another excellent idea.
4. Don’t share more than you should on social networks
You don’t want to attract illegal activity by posting too much info on social networks. Never announce that you will be away from home, as you don’t really know who’s going to see your post. As an alternative, keep this info confidential with close neighbors and family members who will be taking care of your residence.
