Secure Your Doors:
Your doors will be your first priority to secure. You can buy very inexpensive door alarms like the one pictured below, that will sound a very high alarm if the door is breached when the alarm is turned on.
The magnet pictured on the left is mounted right across from the alarm pictured on the right. You can also buy more advanced ones that can be remotely configured, which is great if you want an alarm when you leave your house. Simple ones like the pictured one are great for securing your house at night.
Secure Your Windows:
Windows are the second main items in your house you will want secure. Since most windows are simply smashed when a break-in occurs, the door alarm as discussed above won’t be suitable. Thankfully, they make very inexpensive vibration window alarms that will sound an ear-piercing alarm if any vibration from a break in is felt by the sensor. Below is an example of a vibration window alarm.
They run on a simple watch battery so absolutely no complicated wiring is required. You simply remove the adhesive protector from the back of the product and stick it on the window from the inside of your house. If a thief smashes your window, the alarm will sound, and they will likely flee thinking your home is installed with one of those advanced security systems.
Protect Your Car:
Along with your home, your car is also likely your second most valuable possession and you want it protected from theft and break-ins as well. A very simple solution instead of installing expensive car alarms is to purchase a fake LED car alarm.
It works with simple batteries and installs in seconds with no complicated wiring. Having your vehicle equipped with this simple flashing device will greatly reduce your chance of your car getting broken into. Thieves won’t waste their time or take their chances on a car appearing to be equipped with a security device, and will likely move on to another car without one.
These simple security solutions will work for anyone on a tight budget and will still give you and your valuables peace of mind at the end of the day.
