Oklahoma City Home InsurancePart of being a homeowner involves protecting your property, possessions and loved ones from criminal activity. Most home thefts are crimes of opportunity, with burglars entering through open doors or windows. The easiest thing you can do to protect your home is to simply lock up before leaving and before going to sleep. Dead bolts add another layer of protection by preventing criminals from entering your home after picking the main lock. But there’s much more you can do to make your home even safer!

Burglars like easy targets, hidden by darkness and away from prying eyes. Making your property brighter can effectively scare away some criminals. To keep thieves guessing, install motion senor lighting around your property. Thieves may think your home is dark enough to burglarize, until they trip the motion sensor and they’re caught in a flood of light. This is a preferred method of theft deterrent for many families.

If you’re willing to spend a little more money for protection, a home security alarm is a practical investment. Many security companies will directly call the proper authorities if your alarm is triggered, which is especially helpful if you’re away on vacation and cannot return home to assess the situation yourself. Some thieves are deterred by the mere sight of a security company yard sign or window sticker advertising that your home is protected, which means that purchasing a sign is a cheaper alternative to paying for the monthly services.

An alarm system will sound if doors or windows are broken into, but security cameras will capture the intruder on video. This may be the key to assist the police in finding the culprit, making it more likely for your belongings to be recovered. As a bonus, strategically placed cameras allow you to monitor children, pets and nannies while you’re at work. Just like with the dummy yard sign, dummy cameras can be installed for a cheap solution for theft deterrent.
