There are a number of ways to protect your home in Los Angeles, CA and in doing so you may be able to save on insurance costs. An agent at JT Insurance Services can tell you more about available discounts.
Secure Doors: You don’t want a burglar to be able to stroll through the front door. Inspect exterior doors and make sure frames are strong and hinges are protected.
Light Up Your Landscape: Burglars and criminals don’t want to be in the spotlight so have plenty of outdoor light. Place lights around the back and front yard, near the garage and other structures, and along pathways. This will make an intruder think twice and you will also cut down on the risk of a fall for yourself and family members.
Set Up a Security System: Whether it’s a basic system or one that comes with home automation, your home should have a security system. There are plenty of options for every budget and protection need. Security cameras will work both as a deterrent and a means of justice. Security cameras can be part of the security system or you can have cameras that work on their own. Use cameras with a mobile app so you can look at the footage in real-time and be able to store it.
Eliminate Hiding Places: Trees and shrubs can be a great way to give you home some curb appeal but this also gives a burglar a place to hide. Trim plants and trees close to the home that could be used for cover.
Get a Safe: In the event that someone does get into your home, you want your valuables to be protected. An in-home safe can store jewelry and important documents like passports. The safe should be waterproof, fire-resistant, and heavy enough that a thief can’t walk away with it.
