Secure Entry/Exit Points
It is obviously very important to secure all entry/exit points of your home. It is equally important for the first floor as well, as it is easily accessible. Avoid having large windows, even if you do, install grills to make sure there is no possible way to enter.
Plan Out a Security System
When you are making your house plans be sure to allow space for camera and alarm installations. These are usually installed at all entry/exit points, backyard, main rooms and corridors.
Install Outdoor Lights
Having outdoor lights decreases the chance of anything/anyone escaping from human eyes(and cameras). The placement of outdoor lights needs to be planned right as it can clash with the cameras and cause glare effects.
Keep Caution Signs
Having caution signs for no-entry zones, dogs and so on are necessary for the occupants (mostly kids) and the guests. Make sure the signs are lit and can be visible at night as well.
