CCTV systems can go a long way to deterring burglars, but there are also countless other measures that you can take to enhance the security within your home.

    In the US alone there are over 2,000,000 burglaries every year and 60% of these are carried out using forcible entry, so it is no shock that many people are concerned about the threat that burglaries present. You just have to watch programmes like Crimewatch to see some real life examples of how burglars gain entry into people’s homes and can often turn extremely violent in pursuit of even just a few small items.

    Thankfully, as technology has advanced so too have the number of measures that you can take to keep your home secure. Motion sensor lighting is a perfect way to be alerted to a presence on your property late at night. No burglar wants a giant spotlight on them as they approach your home.

    Keeping your garden tidy and your bushes trimmed is actually a good security measure, as well as an aesthetic benefit. Overgrown shrubs and trees provide excellent cover for a burglar who is attempting to approach your home undetected.

    Finally, advertise the fact that you have CCTV in place. Burglaries are less likely to occur with these measures enforced at your property. Get a yellow sticker to plaster on your front door and you can guarantee it will make a burglar think twice. They’d rather pick a house where their every move isn’t recorded.

    10 Ways to Lace Up Your Shoes Creatively

    10 Ways to Lace Up Your Shoes Creatively

    Perhaps one of the hardest things a 4-year-old kid can learn is to tie his shoes. On the contrary, for adults like us, it’s the simplest and probably the most boring activity we can think of. I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t want to register for a seminar on how to lace shoes, right!

    It’s obvious, you don’t even need to use your brain when tying shoelaces. Look back up, I said most b-o-r-i-n-g a while ago when I mentioned lacing shoes up. But I will take that back. Why? Because when I saw the post from Diply featuring videos of lacing up shoes artistically, I realize how intricate, complicated, and creative it is to lace up shoes. That is if you do it like the way we do it on the featured videos.
