How to Protect Your Home from Burglars

house alarm systems Los Angeles

It may not seem likely that a robbery could happen to you, but it is always best to be prepared. Burglars spend time evaluating the best ways to get inside of homes, and they often have some tricks up their sleeves. Consider installing a house alarm system in Los Angeles and take the following steps to protect your home.

Be Aware of Service Providers
Be cautious and alert when you have anyone providing residential services in your home. Plumbers, carpet installers, and delivery people alike can have a different agenda than you think. Be sure the windows and doors are locked when they leave and check for any tampering.

Take Caution when Away
Burglars look for signs that you are not home. The biggest signals for intruders are mail, flyers, or newspapers that have piled up outside your home. If you’re planning on being away for several days or weeks, arrange for someone you trust to take deliveries indoors. Don’t announce your departure on social media platforms, and if there is snow, ask a neighbor to put fresh tracks on your driveway. You can also put your television or your lights on a timer so that it seems like someone is home.

Try Not To Be Too Inviting
You may not realize that your everyday behavior can be quite inviting for a home intruder.

Be sure to close the blinds at night when someone may be able to walk past and see inside. Don’t leave nice things or the packaging for big purchases outside, as they are an indicator of the kinds of items you own. Remember to lock your windows and doors when you leave and before going to bed.

Be Smart about Your Alarms
Experts suggest having alarms installed in all windows, including those above the kitchen sink and on the second story. If your front entrance is made of glass, avoid putting your home alarm control pad where it can be seen. Motion detectors are also a good option for maximum security for your home.

Whether you’re looking for surveillance cameras or an alarm system for your home or business, Post Alarm Systems can help. Give us a call today at 1-800-654-7678 or visit us online to learn more about our services and our commitment to our clients.

Fire Monitored Alarm Protection

Adding monitored fire protection to your security system does not only play a crucial role in saving valued property but it is a crucial element of life safety. Monitored smoke, carbon monoxide and heat detectors decrease the chance of injury or fatality if a fire should start. Although non-monitored, battery operated smoke detectors will alert you of a fire, you are still relying on your ability to hear the detector early enough to coherently get out of the house.

A fire can become deadly in a matter of seconds due to the poisonous gases from burning material. Time is of the essence. Monitored smoke and heat detectors will not only alert you of the fire but will alert our Central Monitoring Station at the same time. Now you and your family can Get OUT of the house while we at Post Alarm are dispatching the fire department.

Beat Burglars At Thier Own Game. - TIPS

With access to modern locks and security alarm systems, today’s homeowners don’t have to worry as much about having their houses broken into. However, just because burglaries have been on the decline in recent years doesn’t mean the threat isn’t still there. When homes are invaded, it’s common for the perpetrator to escape without being caught. Furthermore, many thieves have ways of breaking in that don’t involve forced entry. Here are a few simple steps you can take to keep intruders off your property.

Keep Your Belongings Out of Sight
This, of course, won’t physically impede potential robbers from entering your home, but it is one of the best ways to discourage them from trying. Burglars tend to target houses that are clearly stocked with expensive goods. Leaving your windows open when you’re away from home is a good way to attract thieves. You should also get rid of any conspicuous packaging that might let others know you’ve recently made an expensive purchase.

Secure All the Entryways
Breaking into someone’s house is often as simple as finding a door or window they’ve forgotten to lock. Always lock up when you expect to be away from home for an extended period of time. Keep in mind, however, that some sliding doors and windows can be easily bypassed even if they’re locked. To protect these entryways, simply block the groove with an object such as a steel bar or plank of wood.

Upgrade Your Security System
It’s always a good idea to invest in a good alarm so you can stay alert at all times. Even if you have one already, it can be beneficial to examine the system for weaknesses and look into other prospects. It’s best to look at several companies that offer residential alarm systems so you can be sure you’re getting the best deal.

Post Alarm Systems has more than 50 years of experience with helping homeowners in Orange and Los Angeles Counties keep their houses safe from the threat of invasion. If you’d like to take the first step toward having a quality commercial or residential alarm system installed, we’d be happy to get you started.

All About Alarm System Screens

Alarm screens are an excellent way to secure the perimeter of your house without sacrificing your view or having to vent windows. This type of home security system is as effective as it is convenient. Read on to learn more about alarm screens and how they work.

Alarm screens cover the perimeter of your house, so you can move through the inside of your house freely without worrying about setting the alarm off. If the screen is punctured or dislodged while your alarm system is armed, it will immediately be activated. This notifies the central monitoring station so that professionals can quickly respond, and it also discourages the potential intruder from entering the house. They can be easily removed and cleaned when the alarm system is deactivated, and they do not hinder your ability to see through your window.

If you would like to know more about alarm screens, call Post Alarm Systems at (800) 654-7678 or visit our website. We are a fire and security company that serves the Orange County and Los Angeles County areas. Stop by or give us a call to find out about our fire alarms and home protection services today...

Make Your Home Less Attractive to Intruders With This Advice

As this video describes, a home burglary happens roughly once every 15 seconds in the United States. Fortunately, there are steps that you can take to secure your home and your property. Watch this video to find out how to make your home less attractive to intruders.

When it comes to warding off burglars, it is important to minimize their potential hiding spots. It is best not to have trees or large shrubs by your windows; instead, your windows should be as visible as possible, so that burglars will have difficulty going through them unnoticed. Create a border of small rocks between your lawn and your home so you can hear people coming.

What Your Kids Need to Know About Home Security

father  and son

While there are many programs and services that allow kids to spend their after school time somewhere safe, many children are responsible enough to be trusted to stay home alone. However, it is important to make sure that your child is safe until you return home. Here are a few things your kids need to know about home security.

Activating a Home Security System

If you have a home security system, you should teach your child how it works before leaving him or her home alone. Make sure that your child is fully capable of activating and deactivating the security system so that your child, your home, and your property remain protected when you are not home. Also remind your child that all doors to the house should remain locked while you are gone.

Opening the Door

It is imperative that your child understands that strangers should never be let into the house. Teach your child to look through the door’s peephole or a nearby window when someone knocks at the door, and if it is a stranger, the door should remain closed. This also applies for delivery people and cable workers. Additionally, children should not investigate strange noises that they hear from outside. However, your child should open the door and exit the home if he or she recognizes signs of a fire.

Answering the Phone

If the telephone rings when you are not at home, it is a good idea to let it go to voicemail or an answering machine. If your child does answer the phone, it is important that the caller does not find out that no adults are home; if the caller asks to speak to an adult, your child should imply that an adult is home but cannot come to the phone.

Steps To Take If There Has Been a Fire In Your Home

Home Destruction From Fire

House fires can be devastating and tragic; you may lose important personal belongings, legal documents, or even the very home you live in. However, after every disaster there is a rebuilding process. If there has been a fire in your home, be sure to follow these steps.

Talk to Your Insurance Agent

If there has been a fire in your home, the first priority is to make sure that all residents are safe and treated for any possible injuries. Once this has been done, you can begin the recovery process by speaking with your insurance company. Ask your agent how to proceed; they will probably have you describe the belongings that were lost or damaged because of the fire. Be sure to give detailed descriptions of the items, including the original cost.

Return Home with Caution

It is very important that you do not return to your home until it has been deemed safe by the fire department. Depending on the severity of the fire, it may have compromised the integrity of your house; floors may be weak, roofs may cave in, and fires may even start up again. Avoid consuming or inhaling soot or contaminated water that can cause you to fall ill. Have your fire department check your utilities and make sure that they are in safe working condition.

Recovering Personal Items and Documents

Your insurance company will likely be able to recommend another company that can help restore your personal items, estimate and repair damage, and storing household items during the repair process. Make sure that you discuss which party will pay for this service with your insurance agent. After a fire, it is important to contact your landlord and your credit card company in order to replace lost or damaged documents.
