ow to Secure Your Home When Throwing a Party

By: Mike Thomas

Everyone enjoys attending a party when they will be around the ones they love. But if you are planning on hosting a party at your home, you have to do a lot more than just show up for the festivities. If you are the type of person who loves to be a host or hostess, you probably were quick to offer your home for your best friend''s wedding or for the families Christmas party. From sending out the invitations and selecting the party decor, to arranging the catering and buying beverages, throwing a party can be a full-time job in itself. But when you are letting your guests and their dates come into your home, it is very important to put some thought into home security as well. After all, your home is where you keep your prized possessions and where your family feels most secure. If you are not sure how to secure your home when you are throwing a party of any magnitude, consider these tips and be proactive.

Have a Locked or Secure Space Where Attendees Can Put Their Valuables

Just because you trust the people that are closest to you does not mean that all of your guests will be trustworthy. If your cousin invites their new boyfriend or your sister brings along her old friend from college, you will have people in your home that you have not had time to get to know. It is important to select a space in your home where your guests can keep their purses and their jackets. The space does not have to be locked for smaller parties. You might want to have a locked door with a key if you are throwing a larger party and people will be roaming around.

Security Cameras with Recording

As a host or a hostess, you try your best to make sure all of your guests are happy and taken care of. After all, you never want your party guests to leave hungry or unsatisfied. But if someone is up to no good in your home, they do not want to be seen. They may slip under the radar as they roam room to room looking for valuables to take. While you can try to keep an eye on things, you will be busy preparing food and mingling like any good host does. Because of this, it may be a good idea to invest in home security cameras with recording features. You can place these cameras in areas of your home that should be off limits and can catch a thief red-handed if anything does wind up missing.

There are a lot of other security issues that you need to consider as well. If you are serving alcohol, be sure to take your guest''s keys so they do not drive drunk. Also be sure section off your home so that guests can follow a specific walkway through your home instead of taking detours. By doing this, you can keep your guests out of your bedrooms and your office without sounding rude or suspicious.
