Firstly, you have got to remember that thieves would generally avoid homes that are always occupied by residents. However, mistaking this fact to mean that your family would be safe could be the greatest mistake that you could have ever made. Burglars wouldn’t stop from doing anything, which means that to get to the valuables, they could even harm your family. However, you would be just as helpless when you have been robbed of your belongings when you are not there in your home at all. Now that you know about the risks that involve with respect to a burglary, it is important that you be aware of some common sense that could come a long way with respect to protecting your house as well as its valuable assets from any possible break-in and the best thing about these tips is that it is much easier than the pain staking installation of the anti-viruses that you install in order to protect your computer system from any virus threats.

Don’t forget the keys: Handing out the keys of your home even to your friends could be the biggest mistake that you may have ever made. It is important that every family member knows where exactly you keep your keys all the time so that you know what to do if any of them are missing. Never use those traditional techniques of hiding your keys, under the mat or in a flower vase, since that’s exactly where the robber would look for them in the first place. And always keep separate key such as for your home, for your car, etc. in a safe place. Strangers beware: this may seem like the same advice that your mother always gave you when you were a child. Never let any stranger into your home. It is important that you teach your kids to follow this advice all the time. If someone needs some help and asks if he or she wants to make a call, don’t let them in your house. You can make the phone call for them if they really are in any kind of trouble. Keep your doors and windows locked all the time: This tip goes without sayings that in your absence, always keep your house locked, including your windows. This proves to be a great habit and it greatly reduces any chances of any break-ins. Locking the windows would also include locking the windows of your attic. Don’t show off your valuables: Your house is your home and not a museum or a jewelry shop where you put up all the valuables on display. Doing this is only inviting unwanted attention from the criminals who lurk around your neighborhood looking for an opportunity to strike. The last tip and probably the most important one would be to remain alert all the time. Home security systems are a good investment and if you don’t already have one, go get one right away.
