February is a time to celebrate the love that surrounds us - and think about protecting the things we value most: our home, our family and our belongings. Burglaries invade the feeling of safety we have in our own home, but there are things you can do to reduce your risk.
Here's a little-known fact: Fear of confrontation with occupants is a more effective deterrent than fear of criminal consequences. So, how can you lead potential criminals to believe that there's a confrontation risk if they break into your home? Give them the illusion they're being watched.
Outdoor cameras and other surveillance equipment are considered by a majority of burglars before they settle on a target. A fake security camera is a small investment that could make a huge difference.
