Common Home Security Mistakes

On March 1, 2016, Posted by , In News, With No Comments

Having a burglar make their way into your home can be a very stressful and nerve racking experience. That is why Wayne Alarm is here to help with all security system and monitoring services for residential communities across Massachusetts.

Most burglaries can be prevented with awareness and proper security measures. As long as you follow some simply security measures, you can make your house a more secure place. Here are some common mistakes that can lead to your home being burglarized.

Hiding A Key Under Your Doormat: Almost everyone knows that a homeowner’s doormat is the most popular place to hide a key.

Leaving A Ladder Outside: If you have a two story house, be sure that you lock up your ladders in a garage or storage facility. Failing to do this can leave your home vulnerable to burglars with easy access to top level windows.

Forgetting To Lock Your Garage Door: Many homeowners completely forget to lock their garage door, even though it’s one of the easiest ways to break into a home.

Not Having Outdoor Lights: A dark house with no external lights during the night offers an easy access point for burglars to get close to your home. A burglar dressed in black can blend into the shadows without being seen. A good way to prevent this is by installing motion sensor lights at all points of your home.

Going on Vacation and Not Planning: A lot of people turn on a few lights when they go on vacation. This trick is too obvious for many burglars. Try setting up digital timers around your home so it’s seems like someone is home with lights turning on and off throughout the day. People also forget to stop the mail or newspaper when they go away. If your mailbox is overflowing, that is a dead giveaway that no one is home.

When it comes to the precious assets in your home, Wayne Alarm understands how important they are. Our burglar alarm system will make your home safer and will offer you peace of mind and security for your family.
