Install an Alarm System
A home-intrusion alarm is an easy way to prevent burglaries and robberies. They can even be integrated with your smoke or fire detectors. Signage in your front yard that indicates you have an alarm system can also be a powerful deterrent. Most home alarm systems will also qualify you for a discount on your home insurance.
Fence Your Yard
If you have a swing set, trampoline or swimming pool, you should have a completely fenced-in yard. This prevents people from using these things without your permission and potentially getting injured – holding you liable.
Buy a Safe
Keeping your jewelry, money and guns in a burglary-rated safe will minimize your loss in the event of a break-in. Burglary-rated safes are also fire resistant. It’s a good idea to bolt your safe to the floor if it weighs less than 400 lbs.
