Protecting your home from intruders does not have to be a big budget project. It certainly involves money, though not as extravagant as you might think.There are several ways to keep your property protected. One of the best and most popular ways to secure your fence is by using fence spikes. We’ll look at some methods to safeguard your property and neighborhood:
Hold regular meetings
When it comes to protecting your home, make sure everyone has a role in it to play, including the children. Conduct regular meetings to prepare and see if the routines agreed to are working well as planned. Some of the measures that can be taken include:
- Make sure that all the doors and windows are locked.
- Use the alarm system at all times, even if it’s is just for a quick visit to your neighbor or a nearby store.
- Never open your door to uninvited visitors or total strangers.
- Keep your garage door closed and locked.
Topping your fence
If you can, stopping the intruder right at the fence is best, rather than opting for ways to keep him out of your home after he’s entered into your property. An effective method is by using fence spikes. There are different types of spikes that are available that would stay within your budget. Contact a service provider nearby and get them installed.
Get rid of the ‘hidden house key’
Every home has a ‘hidden house key’ which is generally hidden under the door mat, inside a flower pot, or by the side of the brick. Burglars today anticipate these places. So instead of having a hidden space, keep the key with a trusted neighbor.
Play a game – organize a burglary
Ask a trusted neighbor to roam around your home for 3 to 4 minutes and take everything he can find valuable. This way you can know the things that are easily accessible to an intruder. So keep your valuables locked away or in hard-to-reach areas. .
Put up signs that would raise an alarm in the intruder’s mind
Put up stickers or boards of security companies near all entry points in a clearly visible way regardless of whether you have security systems installed or not.
It is your home and if you are determined to protect it, then you will surely give the intruder a tough time breaking in.
