Not all homeowners have the budget to install a video surveillance system with cameras that cover every angle in their home. There are some things you can do to make your home a more difficult target for possible burglars.

Take a look at your home from the outside. Are you able to see your belongings and valuables from looking through the windows? If so, this can be tempting for criminals to burglarize your home. Alter the view from outside by adding blinds or curtains to your windows. You can also plant bushes with thorns to prevent people from looking in your windows. Installing motion sensor lights can also alert you to any outside movement.

Next, you should concentrate on any entrances to your home. Your exterior doors should be made out of steel or solid wood. Cheap materials shouldn’t be used for your exterior doors. Your doors and windows should have locks and be used at all times.

The best and most effective way to discourage burglars from entering your home is to install a home security system. If you’re unsure of which system you should install, contact Basco Security, Inc. today! For a free estimate, call us at 781-294-4166 or fill out our online contact form.
