10 Layers of Home Security

By: Curtis Wayne 0 Comments   7/14/2017

Home security is one of the most important things to consider in an economic collapse.  As people lose their jobs and their ability to get food, they become desperate and they get very dangerous.   

When you begin thinking about home security, it is important to break the problem down beginning with areas that begin far away from your home and get closer and closer.  These layers allow you to create a plan to protect each area as the risks get greater as the breach gets closer to your home.   


Here is an overview of 10 layers of home security.  

  1. Your city or community – The goal is to keep your city or community from becoming a target by thugs. 
  2. Your neighborhood – The goal is to keep your neighborhood from getting breached by a thief or a group.
  3. Roads into your neighborhood – The goal is to monitor road access to your neighborhood.
  4. Other entrances like rivers, woods, fields and parks – The goal is to monitor all potential escape routes that thieves could use to raid your neighborhood.  
  5. A house in your neighborhood – The goal is to stop a team of thugs from breaching a home in your neighborhood, which they could use as a base.
  6. The homes directly next to yours – The goal is to keep your direct neighbors from being targeted.
  7. Your yard, front, back, sides – The goal is to prevent a breach into your yard.
  8. Next to your home, just outside your doors/windows - The goal is to prevent someone from crouching next to your house.
  9. Breaching your house – The goal is the keep someone from breaching your house entrances.
  10. In the house – The goal is to survive a breach of your home. 

These layers give you a way to break down the problem and look at what you can do in each layer to reduce your risk of home invasion.  

This is the first step is home security.  The next step is to research each layer and create a plan to reduce the risks.
