The Craft of Planning a Safe Home and Personal Security

Not all of us get mugged on the streets and that is the good part of it. For the unfortunate few who have experienced it, it can leave an indelible mark on their psyche. It means they will become so scary, that once victimized they will never venture out for the occasional stroll or a even a twilight walk round the block. Just as how services like ADT Home Security works for your home, it is prudent to think about a personal security plan in advance should a threat arise.

Having a plan will actually help you to stay away from the danger, or let you manage a situation wisely. Not all the threats come from the unknown on the streets, the hardcore of the lot will even attempt to mug you at your own doorstep remember, and in fact that is one of the commonest of modus operandi that criminals use to rob the innocent off their valuables. Tracing the criminals is often a difficult job because they come with masks, and identifying them latter, if at all they are caught, can be a difficult task. And remember, if you cannot identify the criminal, there is little that the police can do with the scanty details that you can provide about them.

They only way therefore to protect your personal safety therefore is to be cautious and foresee the possibility of trouble. Most often the reason why people lose out on the criminal is the tendency to be lethargic in how people perceive personal protection. Be alert and expect the unexpected; that way you can remain safe. Here are some precautionary steps you can take, and remember that most of them are something we have always known about or heard.

First let's begin with your home, and at the door. A well secured front door is like the insurance you take to protect your property, and the kind of latch you have can either deter a prospective intruder (or invite him) from robbing you. If you have just moved to a new home, change the locks on all the exterior doors even before you bring in your belongings. The one inch dead bolt or the lock bolt is strongly recommended. They are difficult to pick and seldom can be broken with bare hands or the most common tools.

The second most important security against a prospective criminal is the peephole with a lens on it. It will let you see the visitor crystal clear before you decide your next move. However, remember that the hardcore criminal can dressed like a milkman, a newspaper boy or even an electrical service man, worse still some come with a decoy. They will have many excuses to ask you to open the door, which may at times become inevitable. So let your doors have that chain too, to avoid getting pushed in.

While a peephole is a wonderful idea if you live in a condominium, they will hardly help, if you live in an isolated household, far away from busy streets. If that be the case, having an oscillating camera, combined with an intercom should ward off even the most experienced criminal. The very thought of being identified later is not a criminal's cup of tea; in fact they are an excellent deterrence.

Revealing your personal identification details to criminals is like candy for children. So be cautious about giving your daily routine to strangers, you may never know what the other person will do with it. The Hardcore thieves plan days ahead before they will attack you, and that they do because you may have successfully blocked all venues that will let them burgle your house. And most important of all don't let others photograph your home, and don't do it yourself if you can help it. It can fall into the wrong hands, and the price you will pay is your personal security and that of your family, and the neighborhood too.
