Tips to Make Your Home a Safer Place to Live
In addition to securing your home with ADT monitored home security equipment, there are many simple precautions you should take to help keep your home and family safe. Below are some general home safety tips for you and your family. For information, please contact us!
General Safety Tips
Keep curtains and blinds shut
Keep curtains and blinds shut – especially in rooms with expensive equipment. Do not publicize the items in your home!
Do not leave extra keys under doormats
Do not leave extra keys under doormats, potted plants or any other obvious outdoor location. Burglars will easily find them. Try giving a set of extra keys to a neighbor you can trust.
Do not leave notes on the door
Do not leave notes on the door for service providers or family members. This may tell a burglar that you are not home.
Door & Window Safety Tips
Treat inside garage doors the same as an outside door, utilizing multiple locks.
Talk with a locksmith
For doors that have windows, find alternatives to standard deadbolts. Talk with a locksmith to see what is available.
Fire Safety Tips
Create a fire escape plan
Make a fire escape plan for your family, and perform practice drills on a yearly basis.
Install smoke alarms
Install smoke alarms on every level of your home. Test them monthly, and replace the batteries as needed.
Home Safety When on Vacation
Keep sidewalk or walkway clear of snow
In the winter, have someone you know shovel the snow off your sidewalk or walkway. During the summer, keep your grass trimmed while you are away.
Stop newspaper and mail delivery
Stop newspaper and mail delivery, so papers and postal items do not pile up on your porch. This is an obvious sign that no one has been home for awhile.
