Security and safety for home

Security and safety for home
Have a family security plan and rehearse it.
It is very important to have family discussions of security in general. The discussion should include how to deal with various crime situations at home and away. There should be a plan with role of each family member in each crime scenario, emergency phone numbers and emergency escape routes etc. Without a family security plan, you and your family will be left completely unprepared in the event such a horrid crime should occur. As a result, everyone will be left to their natural "fight or flight" instincts - a reaction that could very well be the wrong response.
Don’t be an easy target.
Risk versus reward—that's how burglars determine if your home will be their next target. One of the easiest ways to increase the risk to potential intruders is implementing visible layers of security. The more visible they are, the more likely criminals will be deterred from viewing your home as an easy target.
Make it appear someone is home.
Many burglars want to get in and out of a home without being seen. So breaking into a home that is not occupied is what burglars prefer. By installing security devices that help give the impression that someone is home even when you’re not, you can further decrease the chance of your home becoming a target.
Secure external doors and windows.
Protecting your home from burglary is all about the layers. Because burglars determine their targets through risk vs. reward scenarios, the more security measures you put in place to increase the risk and lessen the reward for would-be intruders, the less likely your home will be viewed as an easy target. Secure external doors and windows are an important layer of home security.
Watch out for security loophole situations.
Where there is a strong layer of perimeter security such as electric fence, criminals often wait for security loopholes to gain access into the property. For an example, the criminals wait for a vehicle to enter into the property via an automatic or manual gate and hide and sneek behind the vehicle to get into the property. Always makes sure to look out for anyone standing by or hiding near the gate before opening the gate from outside and be vigilant until the gate is closed from inside. The same caution should be practiced to open the gate to exit also.
