The Hackett Security, Inc. Tip Of The Day #5 - Home Safes

The price of a good home safe has fallen dramatically the last few years. With that in mind, there is no reason not to have a good home safe to store some of your most valuable possessions. Their real use is designed to keep the small-time, smash and grab type of burglar from accessing you valuables, or even to stop a dishonest babysitter, maid, or any other spur-of-the-moment type of thief. They also buy you extra time; increasing the likelihood that police will arrive while the thief is still in your home.

  • Use the safe as often as possible so that it becomes part of your routine.
  • Protect the code and change it every so often.
  • Install it in a not so obvious location, away from the master bedroom.
  • Keep in mind their real use, they buy you more time, increasing the potential for the police to arrive as they burglar is still there.
