DIY Home Security Tricks :
Secure your Front Door
1: If you are going to be gone for awhile, ask a neighbor or friend to check your front door for packages, newspapers, or flyers. If your front door gets cluttered with papers, it’s obvious you’re not home.
2: If you are leaving on a vacation, or you don’t get home until dark, consider putting your lamps on timers so it looks like someone is home. I always keep several lamps on timers when I’m away.
3: It’s a smart idea to keep your gate padlocked. It is such a simple way to deter any potential burglars. Here is how I do it on my gate…
4: How would you like to be able to store cash, jewelry, and valuables in plain sight? This Ajax Bleach Safe Can is a foolproof way to conceal your valuables, and it will blend right in with your other cleaners.
5: Are you looking for the perfect place to stash your valuables? With this Home Dictionary Locking Safe you can easily hide your belongings where nobody would ever think to look! This is the exact one I got years ago and I absolutely love it!
6: This custom Barbasol Can Safe is the same one I got a few years ago and I love using it to stash away cash and valuables. Seriously… nobody wants to steal someones shave cream. Yuck!
7: I always like to keep a flashlight handy in my nightstand, and this Tactical Flashlight is a great one to have on hand!
8: No trespasser will want to sneak into your backyard with this intimidating Beware of the Dog Sign. (No dog necessary 🙂 )
9: Magnetic Door Alarms can be loud and quickly scare away an intruder. They’re a simple, low cost way to add a loud alarm! These work great… I have placed them by my front door, back door, sliding doors, and windows!
10: It’s a smart idea to use a Wooden Dowel or a Sliding Glass Security Bar in your sliding glass door to prevent intruders from prying the door open. Here’s how I use mine.
11: Even if you don’t have an expensive security system in your home, there’s no reason why you can’t appear to have one. 🙂 Keeping a Home Security Sign in your front yard at all times is an excellent way to scare away intruders without paying for an expensive home security system.
