📺📺Tips On How to Protect Your Home and Belongings From Burglars 📺📺

🎅🎅🎅 I HOPE YOU ARE HAVING A WONDERFUL HOLIDAY SEASON ! 🎅🎅🎅

Bdarcy-spy-headshot-2016urglars view the holiday season as a big time of opportunity to break into homes for cash, credit cards, and gifts – so be sure to lock up all doors and windows when you leave your home or business; even if it is just for a few minutes.

  • 🎁 If you display a holiday tree in a front window do not put presents where they are visible from the street.
  • 🎁 Don’t advertise that you are not home – burglars look for clues like outdoor lights that are on 24 hours a day, piled up newspapers, mail, or advertising fliers hanging on door knobs. Use an inexpensive light timer when you are away, and ask a neighbor or friend to pick up your mail and newspapers.
  • 🎁 If you go out shopping for the day or evening turn on a radio, television or lights so the house or apartment appears to be occupied. This is one of the most commonly mentioned deterrents for burglars.
  • 🎁 DO NOT hide spare keys to the front door under rocks, in pots, under floor mats, or above door ledges. Instead, give the spare key to a neighbor that you trust.burglar-157142_640
  • 🎁 Burglars like to enter through unlocked windows. If you display exterior holiday lig
    hting, and the  cords are running inside through a window,  that prevents your house from being secure.
  • 🎁 Don’t post your flast name on your mailbox. A burglar can call 411 to get your telephone number and call your home to confirm that you are not home.
  • 🎁 Don’t leave overly descriptive messages on your answering machine such as, “You have reached the Smiths; we are away with family for the holidays.” Burglars love to hear that they have plenty of time to break in and ransack your home.
  • 🎁 Do not pile up gift boxes on the street for the garbage day after Christmas. Break the boxes down and bag them for disposal.
  • 🎁 Keep your property open and visible with good lighting, and keep your bushes and trees trimmed as a deterrent.
  • 🎁 Keep a car visible in your driveway if possible.Seeing a car in the driveway is a major deterrent for burglars.
  • 🎁 merry-1628845_640Get to know your neighbors so they can report any suspicious activity to you.

REMEMBER, THE ONLY UNEXPECTED GUEST THAT SHOULD BE IN YOUR HOUSE AT NIGHT IS SANTA CLAUS!  I HOPE THAT THESE TIPS HELP YOU ALL AND I WISH YOU A HAPPY AND SAFE HOLIDAY AHEAD!

💘💘 BONUS JOKE: JUST  FOR YOU💘💘

A man goes to the police station wanting to speak to the burglar who broke into his house the night before.

“You’ll get your chance in court” says the desk sergeant.

“No, no, no!” Says the man. “I want to know how he got into the house without waking my wife. I’ve been trying to do that for years!”

    Also some other good tips to go along with some of those ones you mentioned.

    When doing timers for the indoor and outdoor lights. Use fluorescent bulbs to help save energy cost.

    This is two good tips for women that live alone. Keep a pair of old men work boots on the porch/steps. And pretend you are saying goodbye to someone as you exit your home, to make it appear there is still someone staying inside your home. Incase someone is watching and waiting for you to leave.

    Burglers might be able to also see if your alarms are unarmed through the reflections of mirrors. Make sure the placement of your mirrors doesn’t reflect your alarm system from the outside.

    Buy fake security cameras to place outside your home to scare off burglars.

    If you don’t have any nearby neighbors. Cancel your newspaper subscription and ask your post office to hol d your mail for you while you are out of town.

    Use a wooden dowel or metal bar for sliding doors and windows, so that they can’t be pried open.

    Build a secret hiding place for your valuables.

    Hope these tips help some as well. 🙂 Hope you have a great day Darcy and happy holidays to you!

  2. My DARCY that good advice you give me today, are unequaled, although when I go out I always insure my house in the best possible way, yet there are guys very ready to make some robbery and I think we are all exposed. THANK YOU MY BEAUTIFUL PRINCESS, have a great start to the week …
