HOW TO PROTECT HOME FROM THIEVES: 7 TIPS TO STAY SAFE!

Do you really know how to protect your home from thieves?

It's your worst nightmare.

Leave home to go to work or for a trip of a few days.

Come back and find a mess.

You don`t want to even think about it, in such an eventuality.

Discover here how to protect your home from thieves.

HOW TO PROTECT HOME FROM THIEVES: 7 TIPS TO STAY SAFE!

  1. SECURITY DOORS

It's the first thing you need to do to protect the house from thieves.

Make sure it's the latest generation and is accompanied by all the relevant certificates.

Security doors are divided into 6 classes of security: the more high class you get, the greater the armouring will be!

  1. BARS TO WINDOWS

The security door ensures a significant level of security but it might not be enough. Especially if you live at the ground floor or first floor. In this case, it would be advisable to install bars to the windows or, alternatively, metal shutters.

  1. BEFORE YOU LEAVE

During the day, always close the windows even if they are protected by bars.

The same thing has to be done at night.

Indeed, better to close some inner door.

If possible, try to not always follow the same routine, which may facilitate the thieves (exit / return always at the same times).

HOW TO PROTECT HOME FROM THIEVES: 7 TIPS TO STAY SAFE!

  1. NEVER OPEN TO THE STRANGERS

Do not trust if some stranger shows up unexpectedly at your door asking you to open.

Be wary of people who pretend to be someone without being able to prove it is the best way to find yourself a thief in the house.

  1. INSTALL A WIRELESS ALARM

The advantages of this system are several:

  • It does not require a troublesome masonry works
  • the components are simple to install and configure
  • the detectors can be easily moved
  • the system can be controlled remotely

What about the prices of a wireless alarm?

The cost can range from 150 to 300 pounds for a complete kit.

Quite cheap, isn’t it?

  1. WHAT TO DO DURING A LONG ABSENCE

This situation is a real boon for thieves.

 If you were planning a trip, or whether, in general, you expect to be away from home for several days:

  • inform a trusted neighbour of your absence and ask them to pick up mails for you
  • if you have home appliances equipped with timers, you could use them to simulate your presence in the house
  • avoid spreading information about your absence: where you go, how long you'll be away, dates of departure and return
  • do not let any kind of communications in the message of your answering machine
  1. WHERE TO KEEP PRECIOUS OBJECTS AND MONEY

The last advice to protect the house from thieves is to make sure that, if they finally will get in, they do not find anything palatable.

Usually, the most commonly stolen items are those marketable without much trouble: jewelry, gold, televisions, smartphones, notebooks, weapons, money.

With a TV it is difficult, but the rest take it with you or store it in a safe place or in the bank.

In addition to this, take out an insurance for the most precious objects.

Never keep large amounts of money at home.

A good idea is to leave in view of a minimal amount of money to "meet" with little a possible burglar.
