    "Eric and his crew did a masterful job of painting the walls to perfection and making sure that our chestnut woodwork was protected. He oversaw the refinishing of our living room and dining room floor that now glows. He fixed all sorts of things that got our beautiful home ready for sale. All of this Eric did with heart!"

  • Avoid The Break-Ins: Home Security Tips

     

    [caption id="attachment_5979" align="alignleft" width="352"]Robbers Avoid The Burglars[/caption]

    Avoid break-ins and robberies, and stick to some of these home security tips:

    While it's difficult to protect your home from professional thieves, most home burglaries are done by amateurs. These thieves are more easily thwarted if you employ some of these simple security precautions:

    • Plan to "burglarize" yourself. You'll discover any weaknesses in your security system that may have previously escaped your notice.
    • Lock up your home, even if you go out only for a short time. Many burglars just walk in through an unlocked door or window.
    • Change all the locks and tumblers when you move into a new house.
    • For the most effective alarm system, conceal all wiring. A professional burglar looks for places where he or she can disconnect the security system.
    • Your house should appear occupied at all times. Use timers to switch lights and radios on and off when you're not at home.
    • If you have a faulty alarm that frequently goes off, get it fixed immediately and tell your neighbors that it's been repaired. Many people ignore an alarm that goes off periodically.
    • A spring-latch lock is easy prey for burglars who are "loiding" experts. Loiding is the method of slipping a plastic credit card against the latch tongue to depress it and unlock the door. A deadbolt defies any such attack. It is only vulnerable when there is enough space between the door and its frame to allow an intruder to use power tools or a hacksaw.

      One of the first aspects of a home security camera to consider is whether you will use a wireless home security system or one that requires connection to a power source. There are many security camera options that are wireless. This means the camera does not need to be connected to an external power supply and there is no need for wires. However, the camera still requires a source of power which is often an internal battery. A wireless home security camera may be easier to install because there is no wiring but it can be more difficult to maintain because the batteries may need to be replaced or recharged frequently.^;.^
