5 Ways to keep your home safe

Utah is known as a perfect place to raise a family and has a low crime rate compared to the national average. However, according to The Department of Public Safety semiannual crime statistics, there were 40,321,707 reported stolen items within the first 6 moths in 2012. Although Utah is not a crime-ridden state, crimes do occur and leave many of Utahans wondering what they can do to keep their families and homes safe.

Communicate with your neighbors

Communicate with your neighbors

If you are heading out of town and have a good relationship with your neighbors, let them know. They can keep an eye out for suspicious activity. Give them your contact information in case they need to get ahold of you in the event of an emergency.

Lights on

Lights on

The few extra dollars a month on your electricity bill is worth the protection. Make sure outside lights are well lit around doors, stairways and alleyways. If you are heading out, keeping one or two lights on will give off the appearance that someone is home.

Keep items away from windows

Keep items away from windows

Keeping valuable property near windows makes it easy for a burglar to smash your windows and run off with your new flat screen TV without even stepping a foot into your home. Keeping your blinds closed or halfway closed will also conceal your precious items from curious eyes.

Landscaping

Landscaping

Keeping your bushes, trees, flowers and shrubs trimmed and short will not only keep your home looking presentable, but it also makes it easier for you to see outside and harder for a burglar to hide under or behind.

Ring the alarm

Although alarms are a tip you have to invest in, keeping your home safe is worth it. Many alarms now days can be controlled from electronic devices and cell phones. This makes it easy to watch over your home when you’re away.
