Home Security Guidelines and Tips You May Have Overlooked

Editors Note: A guest contribution from Wendy to The Prepper Journal.

You can never be too careful when it comes to the safety and security of your home and family. Remember, your home is sacred and it’s your sanctuary. You always want to feel safe and protected on your property, but if you leave your home under-protected, you could end up a victim of burglary or even worse.

So, just to help you wrap your head around the importance of home security, it’s estimated that more than 2 million burglaries are reported each year in the US. This is nothing to sneeze at.

Are you prepared for the inevitable?

At best, you should have a security system in place that can provide an instant alarm. With this system, you’ll instantly know if someone is breaking in to your house and you can immediately take the appropriate actions to contact the authorities. Other basic measures include securing the doors, locking all of your windows, closing the garage door (so many of us forget this one), and adding sensor lights outside of the house to scare of potential burglars.

But there are other important security guidelines you can also follow that
