Home Invasion Prevention Tips

HOME INVASION PREVENTION

Learn Why Home Invasion Robberies & Home Burglaries Are Becoming More and More Prevalent In Our Society ……And What You Can Do To Avoid Being A Crime Victim!

Ways To Avoid Becoming A Victim Of A Violent Home Invasion

1.  Have a Home Security Plan of Action that states exactly what you will do to maintain the safety of your home and family. This plan should outline some specific strategies that will help to strengthen the perimeter of your home and outline things that you can do to help provide additional protection for family members if you are involved in a home invasion attack. The plan may also encourage taking a self-defense and/or personal safety awareness training class. By learning safety awareness and self-defense techniques and tactics, you will know defensive ways to protect yourself against an attacker whether at home or on the street.

2.  Install a good quality home security system with 24/7 alarm monitoring. The alarm company will immediately be alerted to any activity from your home and dispatch the police of any type of home burglary or emergency. Remember the police can’t be everywhere and the security and safety of your home and family is your responsibility. Be proactive and protect your home but don’t rely solely upon the security system. In addition you should implement solid protection strategies to make your home impenetrable to a home invasion or home burglary. A security system can provide tremendous peace of mind for you and your family.

3.  Harden the perimeter of your home. Evaluate perimeter doors, windows, and locks. Make sure to have solid core wood or metal doors for the main entry doors. Reinforce frames around doors that are older or outdated. Upgrade deadbolts and locks to ensure they can provide solid protection in case of a forced intrusion. Since most home invasions happen when criminals kick and force open your door, make sure you have a super strong, quality deadbolt locking system. If your door gets kicked in by a 250 lb intruder, you want to ensure your deadbolt lock will hold the door in place. Check our security partners at The Ultimate Lock to see how effective this locking system can be.

4.  Install an Early Alert Warning System for your home. The Voice Alert System will let you know when someone is on your property and within a specific radius of your home. Outdoor sensors transmit an alert warning to a voice annunciator inside your home to let you know what area of your property is being breached by potentially unwanted visitors.

Would you like to know well ahead of time that someone is trying to enter your home so you have time to respond? YES should be your answer!

5.  When you are at home, be sure to keep all doors and windows locked. If a stranger comes to your door, DO NOT open your door unless you know precisely who it is. The majority of home invasion robberies happen right through the front door. A homeowner automatically opens the front door without thinking and is confronted by a violent home intruder. Make it a habit to ask who is at the front door before opening. You can always communicate through a closed door. You are under no obligation to open your door to anyone - especially strangers. Ask for identification if it is someone claiming to be from a utility or delivery service company. Carry your phone and call to confirm their identity or call 911.

6. Join or form a Neighborhood Watch Group where neighbors know each other in the immediate vicinity. Get to know the neighbors across from you. Have a form and get to know your neighbors so you can all watch out for each other. Go across the street 5 houses to the left and 5 houses to the right and do the same on your side 5-houses to the left and 5-houses to the right. Then exchange names, phone numbers, addresses, and vehicle types. Recognize any unfamiliar vehicles especially those driving slowly looking at individual homes. When you arrive home, if there is an unfamiliar vehicle parked in front of your home with people inside, you should drive on especially if you are the least bit in doubt or have a “gut feeling” that says drive on.

7. Always be alert and aware of your surroundings. Sometimes your intuition or instincts will let you know when something isn’t right. Listen! When you are out and about be aware if someone - perhaps a stranger - seems to be watching you too closely, seems overly friendly, or way too interested in your personal affairs. Be aware of any vehicle that you feel is following you a little too closely as you drive home.

8. When you pull into your driveway keep your car doors locked and observe if there are strangers around as you pull into the garage. While still in your car, close the garage door and make sure it if fully closed as you exit your vehicle. It is easy to become overwhelmed with groceries, packages, and work-related items to the point we aren’t paying close attention to what is going on in and around the garage area.

9Keep some type of personal protection like pepper spray or mace near the front door - easily within reach in case of a forced intrusion. If you have small children, keep it out of reach and away from them. Some homeowners resort to other non-lethal protection like a TASER or Stun Gun, other homeowners use lethal firearms for their family personal protection. Be sure to follow local, city, and state laws regarding this protection and always make sure you know how to properly use the personal protection you select. Keep in mind that the intruder may be armed so use your best judgment on how you will defend yourself.

10. Be sure to keep trees and shrubs trimmed around your home so you don’t give home intruders an easy place to hide. Adding motion sensor lights around the home can also provide deterrent value. The best place to install motion sensor lights would be in the front, back, and garage side of the house. A suggestion would be to have the motion lights connected to a light or lamp inside the home. That way if the outdoor motion light is activated it also turns a light on inside the house. This gives the real impression to the burglar that someone may actually be at home.

Is Your Sole Security Your Pet Pooch?

Don’t Make Your Pet Take On An Armed Intruder! During my 20 years as a home security consultant there were many times when I ran into people who would say - “why do I need a security system…I have a dog?” My answer would typically be - “a good barking dog and a security system do a great job of deterring a criminal intruder.  However, is your pet really equipped to take on an armed intruder?”

There have been numerous home intrusions and home invasion robberies over the past six months in our local area and two in particular where burglars ransacked the homes and ended up shooting and killing the homeowner’s pet dogs as they left the homes.  Heartless Dirtbagsdogkilledrobbery_jpg!!

If you don’t want a security system because you feel pretty safe, think about your pet who is home most of the time when you aren’t - and considering putting a security system in to protect your pet.

cw-rocky-dog-for-blog3Rocky is our pet and guardian of the house when we’re gone.  It’s been a top priority to make sure that both my home and Rocky are well-protected.

Take one look at this pooch - that’s not a SMILE!!

Here is a friend’s new little puppy who will somestevie-sleeps2 day be the protector of the house.  It would be a serious shame if someone were to blatantly shoot a puppy as sweet as this little guy during a home invasion/intrusion!

One thing I encourage people I know who have a security system is to get into the habit of always turning  it on - both when you leave for the day or go to bed at night.

A security system provides a great early alert warning.  Plus when you have a barking dog chances are real good that you’ll know when something suspicious is happening around your home.  If an intrusion occurs when no one is home, the police are typically notified right away and dispatched to the home.

My recommendation is to be proactive and protect your home with a good quality home security system making sure your home, family, and beloved pets are well-protected 24/7.  That’s total peace of mind!!







Are You Telling Too Much Personal Info On Your Social Media Sites?

March 27, 2010 by admin  
Filed under Home Security Headline News

Last September I did a blog on how posting your personal whereabouts on  social media sites like Twitter and Facebook may be giving potential online criminals too much information.

Below is the article we posted back in September and this type of crime is continuing to happen even more today.  The key is to be smart, be aware of online safety issues, and recognize who you are allowing to become your “friend.” If you’re “tweeting” and “commenting” to your friends about your whereabouts - that you are on vacation, dining out…or whatever, at least make sure your home is protected with some type of security system.

Leaving your home vulnerable and unprotected makes it easy for online criminals to do their “offline” job of burglarizing homes.  There are way too many of these “criminal predators” trolling the social media sites.

Listen Up - Could your Twitter and Facebook postings tip off quasi-criminals - i.e. home burglar type “friends” to the fact that you aren’t home?

facebook-pic1When you tweet where you are or comment on Facebook to all your friends that you’re having the best cup of coffee at Panera Bread or Starbucks, are you alerting some unscrupulous “friend” that you’re not at home and that may be the opportunity for a home break-in?

Your first inclination may be “NO WAY” - who would possibly do that?  A savvy “professional” burglar that’s who.  Look at the number of burglaries and home invasion robberies that have dramatically increased over the last 18 months.  Anything is possible - you just need to be ahead of the game.

You see “online” child predators disguising themselves as “friends.” Who’s to say there aren’t “online” local home burglars who carry their cell phones set up with Facebook/Twitter apps so they can keep up with what their “friends” are doing 24/7.

Someone could potentially “friend” local community peeps on both Facebook and Twitter and just watch the conversations.  When someone is on vacation - talking about how great the oceanview is in Florida or that they are visiting family in California, this may be a great opportunity to checkout the home to see if anyone is REALLY home.  Bingo!! The home is totally empty — AND NO SECURITY SYSTEM!!

My suggestion is protect your home and family right now so you don’t have to worry what you say on Facebook, Twitter or whatever social media you use.  What is holding you back?  Taking action now means you’ll spend less money, get a good level of protection without breaking the bank, and have total peace of mind whether at home or away on vacation.

Install a home security system today and tweet all you want about the wonderful coffee at Starbucks!!

Home Security And How A Burglar Thinks!

February 1, 2010 by admin  
Filed under Home Security Solutions

Things Your Burglar Won’t Tell You:

1.  Of course I look familiar. I was here just last week cleaning your carpets, painting your shutters, or delivering your new refrigerator.

2.  Hey, thanks for letting me use the bathroom when I was working in your yard last week. While I was in there, I unlatched the back window to make my return a little easier.

3.  Love those flowers. That tells me you have taste … and taste means there are nice things inside. Those yard toys your kids leave out always make me wonder what type of gaming system they have.

4.  Yes, I really do look for newspapers piled up on the driveway. And I might leave a pizza flyer in your front door to see how long it takes you to remove it.

5.  If it snows while you’re out of town, get a neighbor to create car and foot tracks into the house. Virgin drifts in the driveway are a dead giveaway.

6.  If decorative glass is part of your front entrance, don’t let your alarm company install the control pad where I can see if it’s set. That makes it too easy.

7.  A good security company alarms the window over the sink. And the windows on the second floor, which often access the master bedroom-and your jewelry. It’s not a bad idea to put motion detectors up there too.

8.   It’s raining, you’re fumbling with your umbrella, and you forget to lock your door-understandable. But understand this: I don’t take a day off because of bad weather..

9.   I always knock first. If you answer, I’ll ask for directions somewhere or offer to clean your gutters. (Don’t take me up on it.)

10. Do you really think I won’t look in your sock drawer? I always check dresser drawers, the bedside table, and the medicine cabinet.

11.  Helpful hint: I almost never go into kids’ rooms.

12.  You’re right: I won’t have enough time to break into that safe where you keep your valuables. But if it’s not bolted down, I’ll take it with me.

13.  A loud TV or radio can be a better deterrent than the best alarm system.  (I don’t believe this is really true). If you’re reluctant to leave your TV on while you’re out of town, you can buy a $35 device that works on a timer and simulates the flickering glow of a real television. (Find it at faketv.com).

14.  Sometimes, I carry a clipboard. Sometimes, I dress like a lawn guy and carry a rake. (Remember what the criminal in the video said??). I do my best to never, ever look like a crook.

15.  The two things I hate most: loud dogs and nosy neighbors.. (Burglars don’t like security systems either because of the noise and police dispatch).

16.  I’ll break a window to get in, even if it makes a little noise. If your neighbor hears one loud sound, he’ll stop what he’s doing and wait to hear it again. If he doesn’t hear it again, he’ll just go back to what he was doing. It’s human nature.  (A good application for a loud 130 db glassbreak detector or ShatterGARD security window film).

17.  I’m not complaining, but why would you pay all that money for a fancy home security system and leave your house without setting it?  (I agree.  Start using your security system as soon as it is installed.  It’s easy to use and great peace of mind and protection).

18.   I love looking in your windows. I’m looking for signs that you’re home and for flat screen TVs or gaming systems I’d like. I’ll drive or walk through your neighborhood at night, before you close the blinds, just to pick my targets.  (Install an Early Alert Warning System to let you know when criminal intruders approach your home from any side-front/back/driveway- The Voice Alert System will let you know).

19.   Avoid announcing your vacation on your Facebook page. It’s easier than you think to look up your address.
20.  To you, leaving that window open just a crack during the day is a way to let in a little fresh air.  To me, it’s an invitation.

21.   If you don’t answer when I knock, I try the door. Occasionally, I hit the jackpot and walk right in.

Home Security System - The First Line Of Defense!

Filed under Home Security Headline News

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!

Home Security - The Best Glass Protection

Optimum Glass Protection & How To Keep Thugs From Breaking Through Sliding Glass Doors & Windows

Here’s A Typical Problem: There are many windows on your main andburglarized-thru-window lower levels that you consider to be vulnerable to a burglary.  On the backside of your home there are (3) sliding glass doors that are concealed from your neighbor’s view.  You have seen on the local news that burglars are easily busting through sliding glass doors when no one is home.  How can you protect your sliding glass doors and windows from home intruders breaking in – whether you have a security system or not?

Solution: The standard recommendation is to install a home security system and protect the glass on the doors and windows with specific sensors.  If you have a security system, a glassbreak detector can sense breaking glass and sound a loud decibel alarm that will alert your alarm company to dispatch the police.  Keep in mind your home location and the time it will take for the police to arrive after being dispatched.  The burglar may be able to get into your home, rob you of your valuables, and be long gone before the police arrive.

Your main goal should be to keep intruders from ever getting into your home.

To make it extremely difficult for the home intruder to get through glass doors or windows, install a security window film that offers optimum glass protection making the glass virtually impenetrable.   Our security resource for quality security window film is ShatterGARD.

Tips On Protecting Glass Slider Doors & Windows

  • As I’ve mentioned many times, having good locks and reinforcement on the windows – such as dowel rods – can make the window extremely difficult to open.  However, if the intruder is determined to break in through the glass, you need to ensure the window is unable to be broken through without setting off an alarm or making it virtually impenetrable to actually getting through.
  • Contact sensors on the window or doors will set off the alarm only when the door/window is opened.  Many burglars do not want to take the time to bust out the glass, clean it out and then crawl through.  This is a very good protection level.
  • A glassbreak detector sets off the alarm when glass is broken and is typically connected to a security alarm system.  However, there are wireless glassbreak sensors that can set off an alarm locally (meaning it is not connected to a 24/7 monitoring company).
  • An optimum protection for glass doors and windows is offered through ShatterGARD security window film.   This company also provides security window film for your vehicle’s glass.  When this window film is applied to the inside glass, it makes it virtually impenetrable to getting through.  Check out the following videos that show how ShatterGARD security window film can protect both your home and your vehicle from break ins and violent carjackings.
  • Don’t forget to install a home security system as your ultimate deterrence to a home burglary or home invasion robbery crime.

Burglarized 4 Times In 13 Months?!?!

January 9, 2010 by admin  
Filed under Home Security Solutions

Spike In Home Burglaries - Courtesy of KXAN.com

The South Bend Tribune did a front page article last week about a homeowner who had been burglarized 4 times in the last 13 months.  Each time she was burglarized she replaced her stolen valuables with “new” stuff.  And guess what happened - NO SECURITY SYSTEM!! The burglars got brand new stuff again!

What would YOU do if you were burglarized after the first time?  Now please tell me you’re smart enough and you care enough about your family to proactively protect them BEFORE a burglary happens!  However, if you have no alarm system or strategic protection set up in your home once you have that first burglary that’s your cue to install a home security system or at least beef up overall protection.

For a homeowner to be burglarized “4″ times and still have no security system - that is plain CRAZY!! There is a desperation among criminals at this particular time that is running rampant.  They are breaking into homes - whether homeowners are there or not - like it’s their job!!  They blatantly come in during the day when people are gone and at night while people are asleep.

The first thing you want to do is realize that no matter where you live crime is nearby - and potentially coming to your home.  The best protection would be to install a quality security system and ensure you have hardened the perimeter of your home making it extremely difficult for an intruder to get through.  One thing to remember - if these lazy bums have to work with any effort to get into your home, they will more than likely leave and go to a much easier home.  Remove the ease and target of opportunity and they will go elsewhere!!

If you leave your doors or windows unlocked, you are only inviting burglars and intruders into your home.  With home burglary crime part of our daily news, you are being irresponsible if you leave doors unlocked when away from home or asleep at night.  Make it a habit not to do that!

Here is a recent article on 7-steps you can take to protect your home and family from becoming a home crime victim:

7-Steps To Protect Your Home Against Burglary/Home Invasion Robbery Crimes

1. Install a good quality home security system with 24/7 alarm monitoring. This should be your #1 “To Do” in order to protect your home.  Set up your security protection to deter intruders.  Make them think twice before selecting your home by initially placing visible alarm yard signs in the front and back areas of your home and put alarm decals on windows.  Your alarm company will be alerted to any type of home intrusion, burglary or emergency and can immediately dispatch the local police.  There really is no excuse not to protect your home and family with a security system.  Remember the police can’t be everywhere and the security and safety of your home and family is your responsibility.  Be proactive and protect your home.  (Get your security system installed and start your peace of mind today - Call 866-755-6137 or CLICK HERE).

2. Harden the perimeter of your home.  Evaluate perimeter doors, windows, and locks.  Make sure to have solid core wood or metal doors for the main entry doors.  Reinforce frames around doors that are older or outdated. Consider upgrading deadbolts and locks to ensure they can provide solid protection in case of a forced intrusion.  If your door gets kicked in with the forced kick of a 250 lb intruder, you want to ensure your deadbolt lock will hold the door in place.  Check our security partners at www.theultimatelock.com to see how effective this locking system can be.  Windows and glass slider doors that are especially vulnerable can have a security window film applied on the inside glass to make it virtually  impenetrable to be broken through in an attack.  Check our security partners at www.shattergard.com.

3. Install an Early Alert Warning System for your home.  The Voice Alert System will let you know when someone is on your property and within a specific radius of your home.  Outdoor sensors transmit an alert warning to a voice enunciator inside your home to let you know what area of your property is being breached by potentially unwanted visitors.  Wouldn’t you like to know well ahead of time that someone is trying to enter your home so you have time to respond?  Go to www.thepersonalsecuritystore.com/voicealert.htm.

Holiday Panhandling Grows During Economic Downturn

December 13, 2009 by admin  
Filed under Home Security Headline News

The economic downturn coupled with the holiday season seems to be bringing out a lot of “panhandlers” who are set up on street corners - maybe near your neighborhood - and desperately seeking your money.  Are they scammers or are they really in need of help?

Watch this video to see if this scene looks familar as you travel to and from your home:

Courtesy of Volkomenkut

The headlines in the local paper talked about the “economic downturn thatpanhandlers-in-sbendr-in-article is forcing more to seek help along the road.”  This is an important article to read as people are panhandling on neighborhood street corners at an alarming rate throughout the country.

It is sad that this type of “begging or panhandling” is happening.  If people are truly desperate and not simply “scamming” the system, there are social agencies that can help.  However, in reading this article it indicated that the lady who holds a “job” on one of the street corners near our neighborhood claimed to have made $700 in a single evening.  She and her husband are both working the street corner.  If someone is earning that amount of cash in a single day, why would they bother trying to find of job??

When the paper checked the husband’s background, records showed he had been booked in the county jail 36 times since 1990 on a variety of charges including burglary, domestic violence, public intoxication, and criminal mischief.  CLICK HERE for the full article.

The mere fact that the newspaper reported how much money the panhandlers made in one day may cause more and more panhandlers to grab a street corner in one of the higher end neighborhoods.  The last thing people will want to see are panhandlers “setting up shop” on street corners watching as people leave their neighborhoods.

We’re already seeing a tremendous increase of home burglaries.  What happens when panhandlers decide to come into your neighborhood going door to door asking for money?  This type of activity needs to be stopped before it gets much worse.

It is up to each and everyone of us to decide where and to whom we give our money donations to.  Of course, it hits at your heart when you see someone who appears to be homeless or destitute on a street corner and they have their children begging with them.  Most authorities say when you give money you only encourage this type of behavior to continue - which may be illegal in many states.

You never really know the person’s “story” - if it is for real or if it’s a scam!   All I know is when the backgrounds were checked of many of the men panhandlers, they were found to have many violations and one prominent violation was home burglary.  And having panhandlers working on street corners near your neighborhood may actually be too close to home!!

Be sure you have protected your home’s perimeter with solid, impenetrable protection, and a quality home security system.

Be proactive and take action today!!

Homeowner Shoots, Kills Intruder While On Line W/911 Operator

If you haven’t beefed up the protection around your home, after reading this article and watching this video you will definately want to ensure the perimeter of your home has an impenetrable level of protection to keep crazy criminals OUT!!

Video Courtesy of Kerrville 911 Truth

The Oklahoma woman spent 10 long minutes on the phone with a 911 operator waiting for the police to arrive as the home intruder pounded on her front door.  He then went around to her back patio area where he ended up throwing a table through her glass patio door and entered her home.

The homeowner - who was alone at the time - couldn’t wait for the deputies any longer and had to protect herself.  She ended up shooting and killing the home intruder with a 16-gauge shotgun. 

To read the full story CLICK HERE.

Because home burglary and home invasion robbery crimes are on the rapid increase, homeowners should do everything possible to implement optimum protection strategies that  keep home intruders out.  By making it extremely difficult to get through your perimeter this can help buy time until the police or deputies arrive.

Some immediate defensive protection measures would be:

1. Install a home security system with complete perimeter & interior protection.  Make sure you have an extremely high decibel alarm siren

2. Install an early alert warning system - The Voice Alert Driveway System - that lets you know someone is approaching or breaching your property 24/7.

3. Install The Ultimate Lock deadbolt system on all perimeter doors plus your interior Safe Room door (master bedroom or room that is centrally located).

4. Install top grade security film for vulnerable glass doors and windows from ShatterGard Security Films.  This security film strengthens the inside of the glass making it virtually impenetrable.   Again you want to buy time and slow the home intruder down until help arrives.

5. Have some type of personal protection to protect yourself and your family.  Many people opt for non-lethal protection like TASER, Stun Guns, Pepper Spray, or Mace.  However, homeowners are realizing that the majority of violent home intruders are forcing their way into homes while brandishing guns and weapons - and are not timid about using them.  Each person must make the decision on their personal protection.  Ensure you are well-trained to use your protection, comply with state andlocal laws, and maintain a responsible attitude with your protection.

Be proactive and protect your home and family starting today!
