  • The first idea we would like to propose is perhaps the most peculiar though it is also likely to be the most popular in homes where love for animals abounds…get a guard dog! Guard dogs are a wonderful addition to your home security plan overall and they will prove to be very effective at shooing off unwanted visitors no matter the hour of day or night. Be sure to choose the breed of dog wisely as certain kinds have a greater disposition to bark and growl, key features of guard dogs; also, be sure to properly train the dog through a professional trainer as otherwise you might end up with little more than an extra mouth to feed at home!
  • To further prevent burglars from being able to pull off their plans with relation to your home, you ought to consider having high intensity security floodlights installed outside your home (well above the ground where they are unlikely to be tampered with). Set these lights up to a motion detector so that they will only be activated when someone or something approaches through the darkness. With this increased visibility, you and/or your neighbors will be able to detect problems more easily and more frequently.
  • Another wonderful home security idea is to start paying attention to the greater security of the neighborhood rather than just the security of one’s own property and family. The more the merrier when it comes to security, and if you band together with neighbors near and far to address security concerns relating to both criminal activity and threats posed by natural forces, then you will be benefiting your own home and many others to a great degree.
