Home Security Fences
Homeowners can have increased security with a
minimum of cost by installing home security fences. Fences assist
the homeowners with approaching home security in terms of layers or zones of
Outer Layer of Security. The outer
layer of security for a home can be comprised of walls and fences, trees and
shrubs, dogs, and warning signs. Fences are used by many
homeowners as the outer layer of security.
Fences. Fences will provide a measure
of security but sometimes they hinder security. A fence will force
a criminal to scale it - thereby alerting anyone else observing this act
as viewing it suspiciously. Fences will provide a "psychological
barrier" to some would-be criminals - meaning that the act of climbing
over a fence will discourage some folks from wandering into a yard.
However, in general, fences will deter some and slow down others; they
will not stop a determined criminal. In addition, depending on the
type of fence, they have been known to aid the criminal. A high
wooden fence that cannot be seen through will provide a degree of
privacy to a criminal; however it can also shield a criminals actions
once he is inside the fence line. A wooden picket fence or
chain-link fence establishes a psychological security perimeter yet
still allows neighbors to observe what is going on in your yard inside
the fence line.
