Nighttime Safety At Home

Updated: Mar 5, 2020

Are you ever at home alone at night and feel nervous or scared? If so you’re not alone. Often times break-ins and home invasions happen during the evening hours when you’re least expecting them.

Well what can you do to feel a little bit safer in your own home? Here are a few practical tips to help put your mind at ease.

  • Always give the appearance that someone is home.

Growing up my parents religiously left a light on or the television on when we’d all go out. This was in efforts to deter potential burglars. Burglars are less likely to try and break-in if it appears that someone is home. Remember the infamous faux party scene from the 90s movie Home Alone? Same idea here but maybe not as dramatic.

  • Call or FaceTime a family member or friend

Whenever I enter the house alone I like to do an all over check to make sure it’s safe and I feel comfortable the rest of the evening. I usually do this with someone on the phone so that just in case a situation I arises I already have someone on the phone to help me out.

  • Automate your home

One of the best ways to feel secure in your home is to have a security alarm system. This means your doors, windows, and home are secured and if a situation arises the company that monitors your alarm system will call for emergency help.

Taking it a step further would be automating your home. As long as you have a smart device near you, you can see what’s going on within every inch of your home. The ultimate security, right?

Alexa, search home security alarm companies near me:

Until next time,
