Things You Must Know About Home Security

Posted on Nov 12, 2014 12:00:00 AM

Are you seeking to keep your home safe? ADT Security Choice is right for you. Due to all the things that can wreak havoc on a home, it is a good idea to make use of strategies in order to keep it as safe as you can. The below article contains excellent advice that will help you in achieving this.

Consider hiding a spare key on your dog. If you have dogs who have free access to the outdoors, try taping a key securely to the inside of one of their collars. This will make your key accessible should you lock yourself out, while keeping your home safe. If you have multiple dogs, choose the dog who is least friendly with strangers.

Refrain from using candles in your house unless it is absolutely necessary. If you do burn a candle, make sure that you blow it out when you are completed. It is vital that no burning flame is left unattended because one slip can destroy your home and potential hurt your loved ones.

Do not use price as the main factor in choosing a company to provide security for your home. With ADT Security Choice you won’t need to worry about price. While it is always nice to find something that is not very expensive, this can have a lot of drawbacks. Cheaper security companies are notorious for providing less than attentive service, which means your home may be at risk.

Don’t allow anyone you don’t know to look into your house. Even if their story is compelling, they need assistance or want to sell you something. There are some people who will just come in to see if you have a home security system, and if you do not, they could come back later when you are not home.

Check the batteries of your smoke detector each and every week to determine if they are running low. If your smoke detector is not on, it will not pick up the smoke of the fire, which can lead to a disaster. Use quality batteries that last a very long time on your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.

Be sure your valuables are not visible from the outside of your house. While having huge windows may be good for letting in light and viewing what is outside, it also gives potential thieves a good look in your own home. If you have windows that face the street, always keep them covered and keep your valuables safe.

Some of the advantages of an ADT Security Choice security system is that it is more dependable than a wireless system. There are no batteries to replace, and the system does not rely on radio frequency waves. This means fewer false alarms which can mean a fine if the police respond for no reason.

As you’ve seen, keeping your home safe is really very simple. By ensuring the safety of your home, you will be more at ease. Make use of the great ideas provided in the above article, and you can ensure the maximum safety of your home. Don’t put your home in unnecessary danger!
