There is no place like home, and home becomes an even better place when it is safe and secure. Have you ever listened to stories elderly people tell about the good “ole days” and how safe their homes and neighborhoods were?
They claimed that they could go to sleep at night and not even close or lock their doors. Well, those days are obviously over. Today home security is dependent on more than a good neighbor and a handshake. Home security today is as complex and savvy as today’s home intruders are.

Securing your home is not just about preventing break-ends. It goes beyond cameras, alarms, locks and lights. It is making where you live safe, convenient, efficient and comfortable. There are many ways that this can be done here are just a few:
Know your surroundings and the people in them. Neighborhood Watch groups are helpful in keeping an eye out for the unusual and the strange, but lights remove the cloak of darkness many need when committing a crime. One thing that helps with home security is lights. A well-lit property makes sure that you can see and be seen. Exterior lights, motion sensors, and inside lights with timers are effective uses of lights to protect and secure your home.
Keep your area clean
Your home is vulnerable when you provide a place for an intruder to hide. Trim your shrubs. Don’t let mail or newspapers accumulate, remove toys and sports equipment, and anything that a person could hide behind. An untidy and cluttered yard might send a message that says the person living here is alone and unprotected.
Check Your windows and Doors
Could the ways that you enter your home provide easy access to an intruder? The chances of a home burglary can be reduced by using a solid-core door, reinforcing the door locks, by installing wide range peep holes and by installing a good deadbolt lock. To make your windows more secure you can use shatter resistant window glass. You can make sure your windows have working locks and you can install security bars.
Home security is a booming business generating millions of dollars a year. The products used to secure your home now don’t just deter burglars they can open and lock doors, cut lights on and off, and speak to intruders who come into your yard even if you are a thousands of miles away. Security devices can alert family members if you are in danger or directly call police, firemen or paramedics.
This may seem a strange one to some, but these are perilous times. We have seen how determined people will let nothing stop them if their intent is hurt, harm or steal. Covering your home in prayer might be just what’s needed to get to the heart of an intruder and change his mind.
