Since the beginning of time dogs and humans have been largely inseparable. Today’s domestic dogs are descendants of wolves and foxes. For centuries humans have depended on dogs as companions, hunters, and guards. If you don’t already have a dog, security experts recommend that you give serious thought to owning one. The most hardened criminals, such as convicted burglars, rapists and murders, suggest that a dog is one of the most effective deterrents against crime.

Dogs can hear and smell much better than us. This allows them to detect the presence of a would-be-intruder long before we can. The heightened senses they possess allows us the time to prepare to defend ourselves. At the same time the dogs bark lets a criminal know they have been detected – which, in itself is usually enough to convince them to abort a planned crime. Criminals know that most dogs will attack if they feel their owner or territory is being threatened.

Don’t go out and buy a dog solely for protection, you must be willing to provide a loving home for your companion. The breed of dog is really personal preference. Breeds like German Shepherds, Dobermans, and Rottweilers are popular security dogs. Labs and Retrievers tend to make great pets for families with children. Research suggests that even more important than the size and strength of a dog is the dog’s bark. The louder and more continuous the bark, the better. So even a small dog that barks when others approach can make an excellent crime deterrent. By nature, dogs are nocturnal even though they tend to adapt to our sleep patterns. Even still, there instinct is to hunt at night and this makes them awesome home protectors while we rest.

Tips For Securing Home Doors and Windows From Intruders

Share

One of the easiest ways a burglar enters your home is through an unlocked door or window. Securing home doors and windows is quick, easy and inexpensive. Believe it or not, over half of all intruders enter homes through unlocked entry doors and windows. Nearly 40 percent of all break-ins take place during daylight hours. Most families fail at taking the number one precaution of always securing entry ways in the home. That being said, locked doors won’t stop a determined criminal but here are a few things you can do to make the job as difficult and time consuming as possible.

Tips For Securing Home Doors and Windows From Intruders

    Tips For Securing Home Doors and Windows From Intruders

  • Strengthen your entry doors. The door itself should be hollow core metal or solid wood. Try to avoid doors with heavy glass or wooden panels. However, if aesthetics win out, consider installing double cylinder locks – the kind that require a key to open from both inside and out. This will prevent an intruder from simply breaking the glass or wooden panel to unlatch the lock.
  • Install a heavy duty strike plate and 3 inch screws. These pieces of door hardware are inexpensive and provide extra protection against forced entry. Quality strike plates are made from stainless steel and offer different finishes to match your door.
  • All solid exterior doors should have a peephole installed. This will allow you to see whoever is outside, prior to opening your door.
  • Install deadbolt locks on all entry doors with at least a 1 inch throw. Security experts agree, that if you do only one thing, installing a deadbolt on each entry door is the most valuable thing you can do to secure the home
  • Sliding doors or patio doors leave your home most vulnerable to break-ins. Secure them with shatterproof or impact resistant panes. One way to provide extra protection is to install locks with vertical bolts or alternatively a door brace for added security.
  • Home Security Products Stop Burglars In Their Tracks

    Share

    Very few things stop burglars in their tracks better than home security products. Some examples of these are security cameras, fake security cameras, home security systems, motion activated alarms and window and door alarms.

    When a burglar is out casing a neighborhood-looking for homes that are vulnerable-he looks for signs of home security products. Is there a sign in the front yard that warns of a vicious guard dog, for example, or a sign that warns of a home security system in place or does he see security/surveillance cameras in place on the property?

    The number one thing that will stop of burglar from getting in your front door is a sound of a barking dog which is why this barking dog alarm is one of the most effective home security products available in the industry.

    It uses radar wave-sense technology to sense motion through wood, plastic, glass and cement up to as much as 12 feet away and more through open areas. The detection angle is 154 degrees horizontal which is more than enough to cover the front of the house. Both the volume and sensitivity levels are adjustable. A wireless remote control can arm and disarm the system.

    Here’s How It Works

    When an intruder approaches, the radar wave-sense technology picks up movement and the sound of an angry barking dog starts. As the intruder gets closer, the sound of the barking increases in intensity frightening away the burglar.

    In study after study home security products such as the barking dog alarm have been proven to be a highly effective deterrent to home burglary.

    “The Electronic Watch Dog will protect homes, apartments, mobile homes, RV’s, jewelry stores, hotels, factories, warehouses, public and private buildings of virtually every kind.”

    This home security product operates on standard AC power with battery backup in case of power goes off. You can choose between a barking dog alarm and a chime to announce visitors or customers in a store. This barking dog requires no training or feeding making it completely maintenance free.

    Why You Should Use A Hidden Diversion Safe

    Share

    Here are some very good reasons why you should use a hidden diversion safe. The biggest reasons are they are just as effective as and a lot less expensive than a regular floor or wall safe.

    The facts are that a burglar will spend 10 minutes or less, on average, according to a Chicago Police Department study, inside your home looking for items of value. They are primarily looking for smaller items that can be quickly and easily pawned for cash.

    Yes, occasionally you will hear about burglars walking out with big-screen TVs and other larger items, but since most burglars work by themselves those items are too bulky for one person to carry. So they are looking for cash, credit cards, small collectibles, jewelry and even handguns-all items that are easy to carry, easy to pawn and convert into quick cash.

    A hidden diversion safe is nothing more than a common household product-usually a kitchen or bathroom product-which everyone is used to seeing. The only difference is that it has a hollowed out interior to hide these small valuable items. The top or the bottom usually is a screw on apparatus and the product is weighted to make it feel like the real thing.

    The whole idea behind a hidden diversion safe is to “hide things in plain sight.” Knowing that a burglar can only spend a minimal amount of time inside a home, he cannot look everywhere. As a matter of fact, one of the last places he looks is in the kitchen or bathroom. Who would think that mama’s jewelry would be hidden inside a can of Ajax?

    There are several ways you can improve your home security to prevent burglary. But if you want to protect your small valuables from the prying eyes and hands of a burglar, hide them in plain sight using one of our hidden safes

    Fake Security Cameras Effective Yet Cheaper Home Security

    Share

    It is a well-established fact that criminals will avoid a home that has security cameras when they’re looking for places to burglarize. It is one of the best two or three deterrents to home burglary. But for reasons of cost-home security cameras can be expensive, instead many homeowners opt for fake security cameras instead.

    Fake security cameras offer some of the same physical characteristics of real security cameras including real housing; 24/7 blinking, flashing red LED lights; motion activated movement and realistic looking wiring. As a matter of fact, they are so realistic looking that no one can tell the difference unless they are a trained professional or an untrained burglar from two or 3 feet away.

    For those reasons these fake security cameras offer effective yet cheaper home security and an inexpensive way to prevent home burglary.

    Better Home Security With Fake Surveillance Cameras

    HOME BURGLAR

    Home burglary is as popular as ever, with burglars that is! A home burglary happens every 13 seconds according to Department of Justice figures. So how do you improve your home security to a point where you can actually prevent burglary? An inexpensive, yet effective way to improve home security is by installing a fake surveillance camera.

    When a burglar sees a surveillance camera while he is casing a neighborhood, walking by homes that are potential targets, he is more than likely going to skip by that house simply because he doesn’t want to risk the possibility of having his image captured by a security camera.

    It is a proven fact, according to law enforcement officials, that next to a barking dog, the next biggest deterrent to home burglary is a security/surveillance camera. Unfortunately for many the cost of just one surveillance camera can be prohibitive. And you can’t just have one; you usually need three or four. Then you need a monitor to see what’s going on and if you want to record, a DVR is needed. It can get pricey!

    That’s where fake surveillance cameras come in. They are so realistic looking that a burglar looking at it, especially from the street, cannot tell the difference from the real thing. Almost all of them have flashing red LED lights. That is like saying “don’t go near me.”

    This outdoor, weatherproof, five inch long, bullet Flashing Security Camera is a great example of fake surveillance cameras.

    When the time comes for you to improve your home security and take proactive steps to prevent burglary, consider getting fake surveillance cameras. They will do the job for you at a fraction of the cost of the real thing.

If no one answers and the first phone call the next number is automatically dialed. There is a remote control that is included with the system that can arm and disarm the system. As many as 14 additional sensors can be added to cover a larger area.

    A local animal control officer set up his own steam using a pinhole spy camera that he had hidden in his office to catch a thief with sticky fingers red handed.

    Apparently there have been several thefts before, so the officer decided to try and catch the man on his own. When he saw who the culprit was he got a couple other officers and they went to the house to arrest the culprit.

    “Knock-Knock” Burglars Wanted By Cops

    Share

    The Colorado Springs Police Department is seeking the public’s help in apprehending two 20-year-old Hispanic males who are considered armed and dangerous because they stole weapons in a series of daytime residential burglaries-so-called “knock-knock” burglaries. It was unclear how the suspects were identified, but probably by security surveillance footage.

    Read the whole story HERE

    What Are Knock-Knock Burglaries?

    They are the latest craze for burglars to get into a house and steal merchandise. Here’s how they work. Usually one, but sometimes two people ring the doorbell or knock at the front door repeatedly. When there is no answer they go around to the rear and break-in or walk-in if the door is unlocked. That is their way of ensuring that no one is at home. Of course, since most burglaries are done during the day, usually no one’s own home anyhow.

    Even if you’re not at home, the Barking Dog Alarm
    is an effective deterrent to burglary. It can “see” through doors and windows to protect an area up to 15 feet away. When that protected area is violated by an intruder, the sound of an angry barking dog starts.

    Police will tell you that a barking dog is perhaps the best and most effective obstacle you can place in front of a burglar to prevent burglary.

    This is a story about home burglaries during the holiday season. Many burglars feel that merchandise that is desirable to steal is more prevalent from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day.

    And of course they are right but that is only part of the story.

    For some reason homeowners get more careless and leave their homes unlocked which is sure way to get ripped off. Additionally FedEx, UPS and even USPS packages are left on doorsteps. Can you say “steal me”?

    Especially at this time of year home security should be increased. You can do that by purchasing window and door alarms for all your doors and windows, installing some home security cameras or even installing fake security cameras that are so realistic looking no one can tell the difference from more than three or four feet away.

    Diversion Safes-Product Review

    In today’s blog post we’re doing product reviews of diversion safes. What are diversion safes?

    The best way to describe them is as innocent looking, common household products such as food containers, cleaning products or soda cans with hollowed out interiors that are big enough to hold items such as cash and credit cards, jewelry, small collectibles and in some cases handguns.

    Some good examples are this Maxwell House Coffee Diversion Safe that has an interior department of 3″ x 3.5″. The container is weighted to give it the feel of the real thing and of course it has the exterior look of the famous tin of Maxwell House coffee. Burglars spend on average 10 minutes inside a home on their burglarizing so you have no chance to look everywhere which is what the appeal is for diversion safes – “hiding things in plain sight.”

    Another example is this Outdoor Diversion Safe that can be used to hide keys. No more getting locked out of the house.

    Favorite Targets Of Home Burglars

    Share

    Reedley, California is located approximately 22 miles south of Fresno and is just slightly above middle-class America with a relatively young population which means they are working people. That area has received a rash of home burglaries in the last couple of weeks.

    Read the whole story HERE.

    In only one instance did burglars need to use force to break-in. The other burglaries were through unlocked doors or windows. All burglaries happen during the daytime when no one was at home except in one instance when a 50-year-old woman was inside the house-she managed to scare them away.

    In every case cash and jewelry was taken and in some instances firearms were stolen. In one case a TV was taken.

    The reason we are highlighting these cases is because they are excellent examples of what not to do. Obviously number one is to lock all your doors and windows even when you’re not home. A home burglary occurs every 13 seconds in the United States. A scary statistic is that less than 13% of all burglaries ever get cleared by the Police Department. So it’s a high reward and low risk enterprise.

    And don’t think for one minute that burglars don’t “case” their targets. They do their homework and look for homes that appear to be affluent with no visible sign of a security system or other deterrents to do in their burglary.
