Ways To Deter Criminals From Targetting Your Property

The number one thing on many homeowner’s minds is often regarding how secure their home is. For some people, the thought of anything bad happening in their neighborhood would never cross their minds. But it’s better to be safe than sorry, so it’s a good idea to make sure you implement security measures.

Listed below are five top burglar deterrents:

Motion Lights
Having motion lights situated around your property is a great way to scare off intruders. The thought of being caught red-handed surrounded by light is not what burglars want. They may fear someone is in if lights automatically switch on.

Video Doorbell System
Over the last few year’s our doorbells have been evolving. No longer do you just hear a ring and have to open the door to see who is there. Now, you can purchase a doorbell system that has a camera feature allowing you to see who is at the door before you answer.

Indoor Lights On Timers
Many people choose to target houses that are poorly lit, as it is easier for a criminal to work in the dark as not to be seen. A way around this is to set your lights or even a lamp to two on a timer, so the light switches itself on and off between set times. The more you vary what time the lights switch on and off the better.

Pebbled Driveway
This is not necessarily the easiest thing to just decide to implement. However, where possible try selecting a pebbled/loose stoned driveway. This means that you can hear when someone is walking around on your property. The more noise a person makes on a pebbled driveway, the more likely it is that someone will hear.

CCTV
Another great deterrent to be using is a CCTV security system. With cameras keeping a watchful eye on your property, you can be sure it stays secure at all times. It will also most certainly deter criminals from targeting your property.
