A break in at your home can result in losing valuables but often what’s even more upsetting is losing your sense of safety and peace of mind. We like to believe that “it will never happen to us” but the truth is, it can. To help you maintain your peace of mind, we’ve put together the following home security tips and tricks that will explain how to conceal your valuables at home and protect yourself from burglary. Home Security - Living Room 1) Limit Cash
When the lights are on in your home and its dark outside, it’s very easy to see inside. When it does get dark at night, consider closing your blinds or shutting your drapes. Don’t have any? Install some, then prowlers won’t be able to see what valuables you have displayed in your home.It’s best to keep large amounts of cash some place safe, like in your bank. Cash is hard to recover and even harder to prove such loss to your insurance agent. If it’s important for various reasons for you to have some cash on hand, hide some in an envelope in a book on a shelf or another more random location. Just don’t forget where you hid it!
