Raleigh, NC (PressExposure) August 17, 2014 -- Solar Motion Lighting has released a free e-book entitled, "How to Improve Your Home Security with these 18 Tips". Customers can sign up for the e-book on the website. Written by James Leahan, it introduces readers to various aspects of security in the home. Robberies are on the rise and lead to great losses and stress. Most of the time, these are preventable by taking various measures around the home.
The e-book provides tips to help prevent loss and the sense of insecurity that goes with experiencing a robbery. It opens with a detailed introduction stressing the need to act before something happens, rather than as a reaction. One suggestion made is the installation of deadlocks, a simple and affordable way to make doors hard to break into.
Alarm and video surveillance systems are also discussed. An automated system can detect suspicious activity while video surveillance is enough to catch robbers, report them to the police, and get back valuable possessions. In this segment, the e-book lists the types of security alarm sensors on the market and how they generally operate. Other options are discussed as well.
Window locks, led outdoor lights, screen doors, and even warning stickers are highlighted as effective security measures. Leahan also stresses the importance of locking doors when leaving the house, an important yet overlooked habit especially when out for short periods of time. Another segment describes how to turn a standard webcam into a security camera. Such a system can send an email during incidents, while the author also suggests free Internet software to complete such a setup.
A number of habitual tips are presented. Several of these are mentioned in the e-book and include putting away valuables such as laptops, wallets, and keys when going out, having a watch dog, closing the curtains when not home, and more. Suggestions such as canceling newspaper subscriptions and not leaving notes on the door are intended to eliminate signs one is not home.
Some social media tips are provided as well. Combined, the strategies for securing the home are intended to make breaking in much more difficult. The habits described in the e-book focus on how advertising one's departure or whereabouts can entice robbers to go forward with their plan, since many keep track of potential targets.
