With life these days getting crazier and crazier, people have been getting more and more desperate, generally speaking. Especially with so many people out of work, crime and burglaries have been on the rise in many communities. What can you do to prevent burglaries on your property?
What it boils down to is making your property a less ideal place to commit a crime. Good exterior lighting is a very simple crime deterrent, but you’ll want to check in with city regulators to see what the potential limits are. Having a security system can be helpful, but often simply having signs of owning a security system can do the trick – things like signs and stickers of a security monitoring company, or even fake (but convincing) cameras can help. And these days, having a smart home is more accessible than ever – it may be a good idea to automate interior lighting to make your home seem active when it’s not.
