Burglars do not like alarms and they will normally leave the area the instant they hear an alarm sounding. To avoid false alarms generated by neighbours cats adjust the detector sensitivity to only react to a large object. Garage and Carport LightsIf you own a garage, you should always consider
installing an automatic garage opener and garage lighting. Once the doors are activated they can also automatically turn
on the garage or drive lights. This will prevent anyone hiding inside or near to your garage and planning to surprise you when you exit the car. Your carport is also important area for improving home safety. You can also use motion detected lights in this area as well. When these lights detect any type of movement in your driveway they will automatically turn on, which could easily startle a burglar. Save Energy with Solar LightingRecently solar lighting has become inexpensive and it is friendly to the environment. If you have any dark areas you can buy a small solar powered light. It will charge by sunlight during the sunshine and illuminate those dark spots at dusk without you needing to switch on the light or use a timer.
