The Lehigh Valley is a beautiful place filled with wonderful cities, quaint towns, and rural areas where you can get away from it all.
However, living in a rural area brings its own concerns when speaking with home security. Let’s take a look at some ways to keep your rural home safe.
Add Security Cameras and Motion Activated Lights
Many thieves are easily deterred by simple motion activated lights and the presence of security cameras. Simply installing them on your property instantly makes you and your property safer. Adding cameras and lights to your rural property is a bit different than a suburban or urban home. You’ll want to add them to driveways, exits, and, corners, and even external garages and barns.
Add a Locking Gate
Rural homes should have locking gates if there is space to do so. If thieves are deterred by motion activated lights, they will most likely give a second thought when they encounter a locked gate.
Add Alarms to All Structures On Your Property
Having a simple alarm in your home isn’t enough, you’ll want to be sure to add alarms to all of your properties. In fact, a thief will probably start at an outlying structure before moving to the main structure. If they encounter an alarm in a garage, they are going to flee before they can get to a home.
