A burglary occurs every three minutes in Canada! To avoid this, installing an alarm system seems to be the best solution given that it cuts the risk of burglary by one-third.
That’s why new homeowners and everybody seeking optimal protection are turning to ADT's products.
However, along with equipment, security depends on a whole set of related measures.
Here are some tips that will help you protect your assets more effectively:
1. Join your neighbourhood watch program.
Some communities have neighbourhood watch programs that organize a group of people to watch for thieves and work together for community security.
2. Keep shrubs and trees around your home well trimmed.
Burglars will have nowhere to hide. Your neighbours should be able to see the front and back of your home.
3. Protect your storage sheds and outbuildings.
Like the proverb says, opportunity makes thieves. Just the presence of certain objects around your home could encourage someone to use them to break in through a door or window.
4. Light your home.
Inside and outdoors, lights connected to an automatic timer or motion detector are particularly useful to deter thieves, especially during extended absences.
5. Give the impression that your home is occupied.
Have your mail picked up and keep the garage door locked at all times. Also, give a key to someone you trust.
