September is designated as National Preparedness Month. Started by FEMA to encourage people to prepare for any emergency that may occur, from natural disasters to someone breaking into your home. There are several steps you can take to make sure your home is prepared year-round in case of a burglary or intrusion.

Keep Your Yard Clear

Anything left in your yard, regardless of weight or material, can be used to weaken your doors or break your windows. Make sure you remove loose items from your yard and lock all storage sheds and cellar doors to prevent access.

Add Motion Lights to Your Driveway and Yard

If most of your yard is shrouded in darkness, it provides an easy way for intruders to creep towards your property and into your home. Motion-detecting lighting will activate upon the first sense of movement and stay on for an extended time, showing anyone on the street or in the house anything that may be happening in your yard.

Install Security Cameras

Strategically placed security cameras around the exterior of your home give you a bird’s eye view of what’s going on around your property. The cameras will be connected to wi-fi and send push notifications to your smartphone upon detecting activity, and you’ll be able to view the feed right from your phone, regardless of your location. These cameras can be placed in discreet locations or more out in the open to dissuade burglars.
