Will your security system work in a world without a grid? Home defense tactics are a huge concern when looking at SHTF scenarios and the kind of home security you need. If you’re one of those rare homes that prepared for an emergency, the sad truth is that you’re now a target, and you need something in place to keep you, your family, and your stockpile safe. But home security systems and home security cameras can get expensive, and they fall short when it comes to actually defending yourself, family, preps, and home. In my opinion, the best self defense weapon is not allowing any unwanted visitors to enter your home in the first place. This list of DIY home security tips may be the best solution, and might just save you and your family’s lives in the wee hours of the night.
