How Can Home Security Signs Deter Burglars?

Every year there are an estimated 3.7 million home burglaries. Thieves have many tricks and tactics that they use to burglarize homes. It is important that you take preventative measures to keep your home safe and burglars out.

Home security systems can be costly, but have you considered the importance of home security signs?  Even if you don't have a security system, there are several ways a security sign can help protect your home from invasion.

  • When a thief sees a security sign in your window or lawn, it is going to make them think
    twice about entering your home. Burglars want an easy target. They want to be able to get into your home and back out as quickly as possible without drawing attention to themselves.

  • Think about how many people live on your street. How many of them have security signs in their yards? Now imagine that you are a burglar, you see several houses with security signs in their yard and several without. Which home do you think is more likely to be broken into? Burglars are less likely to break into a home when they think there is a security system in place. The last thing they want is for the alarm to go off and the police to be called.

  • The cost of a security sign is a one-time payment versus the cost of installation of a security system and then the monthly payments to keep the system active.

In addition to having a security sign in your yard, it is important that you follow other safety tips. You always want to make sure that your home appears lived in. 

If you go away on vacation be sure to stop all mail and newspaper deliveries. Also, make
sure the outside of your home is well lit. Most importantly, make sure that you have at least one or two lights on inside the home at night. It is even better if the lights are on a timer so that it appears that someone is home turning them on and off.

Get home security signs now and be protected for the summer!
