The Low-tech Ways to Get a Safer Home
No one wants criminals to get into their home. However, a lot of the recommendations for making your home more secure tend to be high-tech and expensive. If you don’t want to spend a lot of money or you want to keep your home from being overrun with tech, there are other options you can explore.
Get a Guard Dog
Getting a dog is very much a way to add a new member to your family, but it can come with a security benefit too. If you’re thinking of getting a dog, one that could protect your home might be a good idea. They don’t need to hurt anyone, though – they just need to bark or growl at intruders.
Deter with Signs, Stickers, and Dummies
You don’t actually have to get a dog, however. A “beware of the dog” sign could be enough to deter potential burglars. Similarly, you can use signs and stickers that say you have a security system or camera, or a dummy camera, to give the impression of a well-guarded home.
Make It Harder to Break In
Sometimes, just making it a bit more difficult to get into your home is useful. Aside from strong locks on doors and windows, you can use tactics like growing prickly bushes under windows. You could consider anti-theft paint on walls and fences too.
Unplug Your Devices
There’s more than one way for thieves to get into your home. They can also hack your electronic devices if you’re not careful. Unplugging connected devices that you’re not using will help to keep your home secure.
