*Dogs (Beware of Dog Sign) - Some of the best breed for watch dogs are Bloodhound, Golden Retriever, Labrador, and Boxer.

 

*Leave Lights On - or on timer - timers can be purcahsed for as low as $20

 

*Leave TV or Radio on while out - the sound of noise coming from your home will make it appear as someone is home

 

*Neighboorghood Watch Programs - www.nnw.org  - there are app's on your smart phone that you can join, such as www.nwapp.org and Nextdoor app

 

*Securtiy Screen on front door - these screens make it hard for an intruder to kick in your front door.

They can be purchased from you local hardware store and range from $100 on up ... please be sure to check with your HOA on any restrictions. 

 

*Locks on side gates - this can make your property appear less opportunistic

 

*Trim Shrubs and bushes - keeping a well maintained yard makes it difficult for someone to possible hide behind

*Keep newspapers out of yard and remove flyer off door - have a neighbor remove these from front door.  Multiple flyers on door or items on porch give the inpression the home is vacant. 

 

*Allow a neighboor to park on driveway while gone - this can give the appearance that someone is home.
