So you have bought the home or maybe you have had a home built. You are all moved in and unpacked. You have met the neighbors. Not much else to do is there?
Well, actually, there is.
Aside from beginning your new life, there are lots of little things that need doing in order to ensure the security of yourself, your loved ones and your home.
Like, did you get the locks changed? If you had a home built, it’s not an issue and, most of the time, realtors do a decent job of staying on top of that, but sometimes it comes up. If you are moving into an existing home, you want to make sure the old locks aren’t present. Brand new locks and deadbolts aren’t terribly expensive or hard to install.
It might also be prudent to install a decent pair of exterior lights near the major entrances of your home. The kind with built-in motion sensors are particularly helpful because they light up any intruder – be it animal or man.
And, of course, the obvious route when it comes to securing your home is simply purchasing a home security system. The market is literally overflowing with providers and sites like www.homesecurity101.com, for example, are just one of many that can help you along.
