Effective Forms of Security

The world we live in can be dangerous. That is why security is something that we all need to pay extra attention to. At McCaleb Homes, we work hard to build homes that families can feel comfortable and secure in, and we do not want that feeling to go away. That is why we want to outline a few different security measures that you can put into place so that you can sleep peacefully at night.

Noise Makers

One of the easiest things that you can implement around your house to increase security is to purchase noise makers. You can find a noise making device at your nearest home improvement store or you can also make one yourself. Noisemakers are an excellent low budget option that work to alert you to the presence of a person, while also aiming to scare the unwelcome guest away.

Self-monitored Surveillance

Video recording devices are a tried and true security method. The cameras are user friendly and easy to install on your own. You can place the cameras at crucial points of the home, such as the front and back door, so you have footage of people who are not supposed to be there. The downside may be that you may not be able to keep an eye on the footage on a consistent basis.

Guard Dogs

Guard dogs have long been used as an effective form of security. Dogs are loyal and are sure to go the extra mile to protect their families. There are some breeds that are better than others. So, do you research on what breed will best suit your needs. The downsides to having a guard dog can be the fact that you will have to account for food and veterinary costs along the way. It is also important to take extra steps to train your dog so that they are friendly to your friends and family.


Criminals like to move in areas where they cannot be seen. This makes unlit areas around your home extra tempting points for intruders. That is why it is important for you to have the proper lighting. Setting up motion activated lighting around weakly lit parts of your yard can prove to be a simple way to ward off potential threats.

It is better to be safe than sorry when it comes to security. The security measures that we have laid out here can be relatively easy and cheap methods to employ. And if you can use more than one, all the better.
