3. Install sensor and timed lighting to outdoor areas.
Residence lighting is another proven technique to help deter robbers from targeting your property. Houses that appear to be vacant or unoccupied are a big target for offenders. Including sensor or timed lighting, particularly when you are not home, can give the impression that someone is there inside the house. Outside areas that are well lit, with trees and shrubs trimmed and maintained, will be less of a target.
PRO-TIP – The entryway to your home should be brightly lit, controlled by emergency lighting & a light timer if necessary. Not only does it make it more secure and much more comfortable for occupants coming home after dark, but it’ll also work as a good deterrent. If you’re not home in the evenings, putting inner lights on an automatic timer can make it seem like someone is inside. Consider a smart system, which can automate your home’s lights, audio loudspeakers, TVs, security digital cameras, locks and home appliances.These are all controlled from your smart phone.
