(ThyBlackMan.com) In a world where violence seems to be the norm instead of the rarity, many homeowner’s thoughts are turning to the best ways to protect their family and property from what is going on outside of their doors. It is estimated that an American home is broken into every fifteen seconds and though America is a huge place with many citizens that is still an alarming statistic. Luckily, there are ways to protect your family in the home you love and not all of them have to be expensive. With that in mind, read on below for a few of the top ways you can protect your family in your home without breaking the bank.

Install a Reliable Security System

While this may be a little more expensive than some of the ways on the list, it is one that is well worth the price you will pay. You need to have a reliable security system installed in your home and make sure to have a reputable monitoring company watch your home through that system as well. You can find reliable ADT monitoring packages that will keep you and your family safe and not break your budget to get the security you need.

Consider Installing Double Glazed Windows

Your doors and windows play a huge part in keeping your home safe and secure for the ones that you love. First, you need to make sure that the doors and windows are sturdy enough to withstand an intruder trying to break in, this means having them made out of sturdy material and make sure the locks are reliable as well. One way to ensure that you are doing everything you can to keep intruders out is by purchasing double glazed windows for your home. Double glazed windows have double panes, which not only save on your energy bill but makes it even harder for an intruder to get through both panes and into your home.

Keep Your Shrubs Cut Back

Shrubs that are grown up and close to your house give intruders the optimum place to hide. It’s also easier for the intruder to conceal signs of a break in. Trim the shrubs and any bushes around the home so that the intruder is out in the open. This isn’t expensive to do and only costs you a little bit of time to keep your family safe from harm.

Set Timers Inside

It’s a good idea to set timers up indoors that are hooked to your TV, stereo systems, and even your lights. Most intruders don’t want to break into a house where the residents are at home. Setting the timers to go off every 30 to 45 minutes when you aren’t at home is a great way to make the house look occupied and deter any intruders that are watching your home and considering breaking in.

Use Your Common Sense

Still, the best way of all that you can protect your home from intruders is to use your common sense. Make sure to always lock your windows and doors when you aren’t home and to lock them when you are home as well. Be sure that you set that alarm before you leave and when you are at home as well. A little common sense goes a long way, don’t you think, and it doesn’t cost you a thing.

These are just a few of the ways that you can protect your home from intruders and ensure that your family comes to no harm. From having a reputable security monitoring company monitor your security system to using common sense when it comes to protecting the ones you love these tips will help you secure your home from intruders in today’s violent world. Stay safe!
