You could set up your home to look like a Fort Knox- but that might not fly with the neighbors and could raise a few red flags for would-be-intruders. “What’s so valuable that they could be protecting in there?” is definitely a question that would run through my head if I was scavenging for supplies and equipment in a SHTF situation. This is why security that blends in is so much better.
The great thing about home security is that it is not that hard. You just need to look at your home as if you were a potential intruder, scavenger, or thief. Most people that fall in these groups easily move on if a mark does not look easy to hit or if it doesn’t draw their attention. That is why the ‘sweet spot’ of home security falls right in the middle. Check out the link below for fast and cheap ways to make sure your home doesn’t become a mark.
