Three Ways to Protect Your Rural Home

Living in a rural area can offer many advantages to residents like property space, solitude, and a strong sense of local community.

However, the distance between neighbors and where one might go to work or to shop can be quite a drive from home for some. This can create concern and frustration should someone try to enter your home or destroy your property while you’re away.

That’s why having one form of security—or more—in place is a must when protecting your countryside abode.

Here are a few ways you can protect your home when you’re away.

Add motion-activated lights to your property

These kinds of lights will not only increase the resident’s visibility but will also help to deter any intruders on the property.

Common areas to include motion-activated lights are:

– Alongside the driveway

– Around barns, sheds, garages, and other areas where intruders might try to break in

– Near the back and front yards of the house

– By any entrance points such as front and backdoors

– Near any area that may need more monitoring

Consider installing gates to your driveway

Having a gate at the start of your driveway can be a huge deterrent to intruders as this creates another barrier to your home and property. It prevents uninvited folks from pulling up into your driveway as well.

Invest in a camera or alarm system

Home surveillance cameras are a great way to protect your house as it increases visibility on your property when you’re not home. If available, camera systems can be also be connected to resident’s internet to allow remote viewing from a cell phone or tablet.
