1. Use security cameras

According to a report in the United states, about eighty percent of burglars report saying that they would avoid a house with an alarm system as this easily gives them out and is a major source of stress for them, and they would quickly re-trace their steps as soon as they find the house they are targeting has an alarm system. According to statistics, about seventy-five percent of attempted burglaries were nipped in the bud by an audible active alarming system that goes off when there is a case of possible security breach.
3. Door braces
Many of us are more familiar with teeth braces, but of course, teeth are not the only things that can be braced. Doors can be braced as well and door braces are often bolted to the floor behind an entry door. Braced doors can take a lot of brute force without caving and these can be really a difference maker in the way you manage the security of your house.
4. Secure your wireless network
These days, most of us have wi-fi as a reliable source of relatively cheap internet data connectivity and as much as you wouldn’t want to leave your door open as it is reported that about 30% of burglaries are not actually forced entry, but are as a result of carelessly opened doors and unsuspecting people not using their locks, it is also necessary to keep your wireless network well protected and secured by making sure the password and username assigned to your wi-fi network is safe, smart and secure as hackers could access your bank information, credit card number and PIN if your passwords are not secure enough and such could lead to very devastating ends.
5. Fire extinguishers.
The first thing to be said about fire extinguishers is that every home should have one to put out small fires, and put to rest any occurrence of a fire. Because, of course, small fires are what often becomes big and becomes something hard to be tamed or contained.
When all that is said and done, it is actually hilarious but not so funny that most of the people who have fire extinguishers often have no clue about how to use it. And they begin to fumble with it when the need arises.
