There are many things that you can do to deter burglars from targeting your home. I recently decided to be more aware of my home and the surroundings and decided to go to www.homesecurity101.com to check out a security system. I learned that there are some tips to keeping your home out of the eye of an intruder. One big thing you can do is have the perimeter of your home or property well lit. I installed flood lights on all corners of my home so that in the night time if someone was walking through my yard or on my property they would not be able to walk in the shadows.
Another thing that you can do is keep your shrubbery trimmed low. Intruders like to have shrubbery to take cover in just in case a car goes by. If all the shrubs near your house they will have no where to hide. Lastly make sure that you have good secure locks on all of your windows, especially the ones that are on the ground level or are easily accessible from the back of the house.
