The best way to stop burglars from entering your home is to deter them from trying in the first place. Making your house a slightly trickier target than others will likely cause criminals to quickly move on. You can do this through outright warnings, strategic planning or clever deception. In any case, the key is to look at your home from the perspective of a burglar who might consider targeting it.
The infographic below shows a variety of tactics proven to make your home less appealing for criminal activity. Warning signs, like one announcing the presence of a Leading Edge Home security system, give a strong signal that you’re serious about protecting yourself. It’s also important to remember that burglars hate unpredictability and are usually as afraid of getting caught as you are of getting burglarized. So keeping them guessing about who or what is inside is always a good place to start.
Some of the tips might surprise you. For example, one might consider erecting a fence to protect their home, but the infographic suggests that burglars will use it for cover. Think like a criminal and talk to the experts at Leading Edge Home about what they’ll absolutely hate to see.
