First Line Of Defense Security Strategies

Have you put up a defensive barrier around your home to keep the criminals, creeps, and home intruders out?   What first line of defense  strategies have you set up to keep your home and family secure and safe?

For thousands of people a home security system with warning signs in both the front and back yards plus window decals that indicate there is a security system is the first line of defense.  The signs and stickers are the first thing a burglar sees from the road or as someone approaches your home.  This can be your first line of defense!

img025-good-house-pic2One of the most prominent things that stand out about this home is the ADT alarm sign right at the front entry area.  Burglars typically want to avoid a home with a sign like this.  “Why jeopardize getting caught when there are much easier homes that don’t have a security system.” A random survey of this neighborhood showed there weren’t many homes with security alarm signs - which make those homes a more vulnerable home burglary target.

Again, when a burglar is randomly looking at homes to break into, one of the first things he looks for is - does the home have a security system? If you have built layers of security protection around your home that includes a security system, your alarm warning sign will be your first line of defense.  Of all the homes in your neighborhood your home will not be that attactive to a burglar.  He will more likely move on to another home - unfortunately to one of the homes with no alarm yard sign!

Why Does A Burglar Look For Homes With No Security Signs?

Why you might ask? Because burglars look  for crimes of opportunity.  An easy home with no security system (signs/decals), perhaps a door or window left unlocked can be an extremely easy opportunity.  Burglars want to be in and out of a home within 5-10 minutes or less.  They know where to go once inside, what to look for, and they don’t want to spend anymore time than necessary.  In and out– that’s the game! They also don’t want to make a lot of noise that will attract attention and alert the police.  Setting off a security system will do just that.

You can make your home less appealing to a burglar by installing a good quality home security system.  By being proactive and protecting your home you can greatly reduce your chances of becoming a home burglary victim!

  1. A common and effective burglar-proofing solution is the installation of steel Home Security Window Bars. These can be made either with typical vertical bars, or with steel screen. Window Guards like this can also be designed to open from the inside in case of an emergency.
