Home security is a multi-billion dollar a year business. Why so big? Part of the reason is because homeowners make it so darn easy to break into their homes. Fully sixty percent of all home burglaries happen through an unlocked door or window. Burglars consider homes to be “soft targets” meaning basically a piece of cake.
Any law enforcement official will tell you 90 percent of all burglaries can be prevented too. With those two stats in mind how do you go about improving your home security and “hardening” your home as a target?
The best place to start is out front with a “burglars’ view” of your home. How do the bad guys see it? Are there hiding places out front like trees and shrubs? Is the home poorly lit? Is there any signage for a security company or nasty dogs? How about an NRA sticker?
In other words as a burglar would look at your home is it an easy target, a soft target? Or are there some obvious obstacles?
Your job is to harden your home and throw some obstacles in the way. The best way to improve your home security is to install an outdoor camera security camera system. And the best, easiest to use and install and least expensive is the Four Channel USB DVR System.
It features 4 day/night, indoor/outdoor IR cameras with wiring and brackets for easy installation. The cameras hook up to the USB DVR which connects to your computer. It is fully networkable too.
Put one by the front and back door to see who is there-preventing home invasion.
A burglar who sees a surveillance system would be nuts to carry out his crime, but then….
