5 Ways to Better Protect Your Home

Did you know that burglaries increase in the summer? It’s true—according to data from the FBI, burglaries spike during the warmer months. Taking steps to protect your property ahead of summer can help you rest with a peace of mind. Use these five tips to help improve your home security ahead of the summer season:

  • Invest in a home security system.

    Home security systems are now more affordable than ever before. Consider investing in a home security system ahead of summer for maximum interior protection. Teach your children and anyone who lives with you how to arm and disarm the security system.

  • Install fencing around your property.

    Burglars prefer to target homes that are easily accessible. Scheduling a vinyl fencing installation in Jackson, NJ, doesn’t just give your property a quieter backyard—it also gives you more home protection.

  • Stow expensive items inside a shed or garage.

    Leaving expensive possessions outside give thieves an easy target. Store your barbecue grill, motorcycle, costly toys, and bicycles inside of a garage or shed where thieves can’t easily see them.

  • Get to know your neighbors.

    Having an extra set of eyes on your property can potentially stop a burglary in its tracks. Introduce yourself and anyone who lives with you to your neighbors. If your neighbors know you and the people who usually enter your property with permission, they’re more likely to catch someone who shouldn’t be in your home while you’re away.

  • Choose large, reflective numbers for your property.

    Reflective numbers make it easier for police and other emergency service providers to find your house fast. Ditch the matte painted numbers and choose a set of bright, highly reflective numbers.
