A burglary occurs every 15 seconds, are you protected? With these incredibly simple tips from the Household Hacker, you will sleep easier and protect your home… and maybe have a little fun in the process.

The most basic thing you can do to prevent your home from getting burglarized is not to give those with sticky fingers the incentive to snoop around your house. If you have gotten yourself a brand new piece of technology, don’t leave the box as with the trash. Make sure to break down the box and throw it away in a black garbage bag or directly into the bin, instead of advertising about the awesome gadgets you have at home.

If you have plenty of tiny gadgets that you don’t want to lose, make a boring fake bookshelf out of a few old binders, where you can stow away your precious items.

Since leaving the lights on isn’t enough anymore, you can boost your home security to the next level by making a cardboard cutout of a person and put it near a window. Every burglar would think twice about entering someone’s house when they see a person’s silhouette in the window.

Want a guardian dog to protect your home, without the nuisance of getting up in the morning to walk it? Just put up a “beware of dog" sign in the front door. Simple as that!
