Top 6 Security Tips For Rural Homeowners

Even with the growing popularity of home automation, many rural homeowners are not aware of the incredible security technology that is available today to make protecting your rural home affordable and convenient.

If you are a rural homeowner, here are the top 6 security tips for keeping your property safe:

1. Invest In A Security System 

The first and most important step a rural homeowner can take to protect his/her home is to work with a reputable security company to install a security system on their property. This includes motion sensors and IP cameras both inside and outside the home.

2. Install A Doorbell

A video doorbell is an innovative home automation product that adds an extra layer of security to your home, allowing you to talk to someone at your door, or view an intruder on your front porch, from anywhere. Once the doorbell camera detects someone, an alert will be sent to your phone or tablet.

3. Secure Your Perimeter

Depending on the size of your property, adding security such as IP cameras to key areas of your home should be considered. This will give you the ability to monitor areas that are not always in sight, especially those that run near public spaces or trails, which are often prime entrance points for potential burglars.


4. Add Smart Lighting

As a rural homeowner, you may want to add motion sensing lights to your property including your driveway, front/back doors and equipment sheds. When combined with IP cameras, smart lighting will allow you to maximize your security of important assets such as livestock, crops, and equipment.

5. Buy A Dog 

A dog’s bark can alert you to the fact that there’s activity somewhere on your property and is crucial for deterring and preventing any further action by an intruder and giving you a time advantage for response and notification of authorities.


6. Check Your Lock

Despite their importance, locks are often overlooked by homeowners. It's important to ensure they’re strong, and not easily compromised. Also, always make sure to check all your windows and doors before going out or to sleep as these are often the way criminals gain access into a home.
