Tips to Protect Your Home Privacy
Most of us feel that answering the door is not a wise move when we don’t have guest coming due to the increased numbers of direct salesmen, criminals who are looking to scope out our residence and other annoyances. Say when you finally answer your door and find a door-to-door salesman standing there and smiling at you, it will be your tough task of the day to get rid of him since they will continue disturbing you until you support them or buy one of their so called “innovative” products. Though signing up with a home security services like ADT Security Systems can help you secure your home from criminals, there are other simple methods which will help you to safeguard your privacy from “decent” disturbances.
To prevent your privacy and keep unwanted people away from bothering you, you should use a protective barrier between your door and the street. You do not really need a 15 foot high electric fence, as even the most basic of fencing will do the trick. You can install a simple decorative fence around your yard, complete with locking gate, to keep any type of solicitors at the bay safely away from your door step. Although a fence is a great way to achieve privacy, not everyone has a yard that they can build a fence on. You can also use a gate that blocks entry to your porch or front door, in this way you can keep the gate locked at all times. The main idea and theory here is to make it difficult to approach the door to your home. This way, salesman, solicitors, and even snoops will see that it requires a lot of effort to reach you - and they will normally just give up and move on.
Again Even though a fence or locked gate is great, you can not overlook a dog either. A barking dog can be very effective, as trespassers simply can not look over a dog that is barking. Keep in mind that the effectiveness of a dog with scaring off unwanted guests will greatly depend on the nature and mood of the dog you have. Nearly every dog will bark when it sees a stranger, but not every dog will prevent someone from coming to your door unless it has been trained to do so. A lot of direct salesmen and snoops deal with dogs on a daily basis, and will normally just ignore the dog and the barking and proceed to come to your door. If the dog is more of a violent nature and appears ready to strike, then it will be a different scene. If the salesman or snoop notices the dog is ready to bite, he will normally stop in his tracks and turn around - out of the fear of getting hurt.
Keep in mind that having a dog does not mean that you have to blood train him or put him on steroids to keep unwanted visitors away. What you need, is an aggressive dog that will stand his ground and help you keep your privacy. When a salesman visit your home and sees your aggressive dog, he will surely sacrifice the sale due to the risk of getting bit by your dog.
There are additional ways using which you can improve your security and privacy around your home. You can also invest in home surveillance systems like ADT Security Systems as well, to further enhance your privacy and security. For executive, fencing with a locked gate is the best way to go, if you have the room for it. On the other hand, if you do not have the space for a fence, you can always use a dog or other options. Privacy and security is very important factor that gives us the home fee and hence one should surely think about tricks and techniques to stop unwanted invasion.
