Being aware of suspicious behavior will contribute greatly to your ability to keep your home safe. One of the worst things you could ever do if you are concerned over your own safety and security would be to remain oblivious. Those that walk down the street and are completely switched off from an awareness perspective may make themselves much more likely to become a victim. The same is true when it comes to the protection of a home. The trouble is, once people are in their home they have a tendency to not to be aware of potential trouble that might arise near the residence.
A common example of a person that could pose a threat would be someone loitering in the neighborhood and puts a lot of effort into looking at every house. He might appear to be just looking at the first and second floors of the home. What reason would be do this for? He may be looking for open windows or other security breaches. In other words, he is looking for vulnerabilities that might be present in a home so as to select the right one for a burglary. No matter how much money you invest in home security systems, you will not be able to ensure your own safety unless you are able to spot suspicious behavior in your neighborhood.
