One of the most meaningful events of the year is getting together with friends and family around the holidays. But all the merriment of the season would come to a screeching halt if you were to experience a home break-in.
Of all the burglaries that will occur this holiday season, the point of entry for over 50% will be a first floor door or window. By having this area protected, you can significantly reduce your home’s risk of invasion. Today we’re helping you keep your home protected by recommending a few products.
2. An affordable option with no monthly or installation fees is the Wireless Home Protection System
from SABRE. Learn more about our Home Series here:
3. If a home security system - even an inexpensive one – isn’t in your budget, you should seriously consider buying window decals claiming that you do have a system. The stickers could be all a criminal needs to see before deciding to move on to a softer, more promising target. Try purchasing something like this
4. Criminals target homes of families that look like they’re out of town. Leave town without leaving the impression you have by ensuring that your lights continue turning on and off while you’re out. Shop automatic light timers – an option like this lets you set a 7-day cycle and is perfect for when you’re on vacation. (If you adopt this as part of your home security plan, remember to also ask a trusted friend or neighbor to get your mail every day. Criminals might also look for full mailboxes to feel out who’s out of town.)
