There are a number of things you can do that will alert someone to your presence, without subjecting yourself to risk, including:
- Turning on a porch light
- Turning up the volume on the television or stereo
- Advising that you just got out of the shower and cannot open the door
- Never telling anyone you are home alone
These are just a few ideas that you can use to send a message to would-be burglars that the home is occupied. Even a small dog can be a deterrent to a criminal.
