Home Security Tips from Meenan Security

Important home security tips:

 

  • Break down and use trash bags to dispose of boxes that could indicate what type of gifts you received over the holiday season or purchased in New Year sales to reduce the risk of criminals finding out what new electronic items may be inside your home.
  • Remove all address information from parked cars at the airport — anyone breaking into your car could find out you’re not home and may gain access to your address and garage door opener.
  • Burglars don’t like light. Replace outside perimeter lights with inexpensive and readily available motion-activated lamps and place timers on a few inside lights to make it appear you’re home.
  • Trim shrubbery near windows and doors to eliminate hiding places for burglars.
  • Plan package deliveries to either arrive when someone is at home to receive it or address the packages to be delivered to your work. With the increase of online shopping, minimize any packages that could sit outside your home that could draw attention to burglars.
  • Stop newspaper and mail delivery while you are away. Piles of mail or newspapers are an open invitation to burglars who can tell you are not home.
  • Security signs without corresponding security company stickers on the windows, may lead a passing burglar to believe that you don’t really have an alarm system.
