Once you have invested in having a home, it becomes vital to secure your investment. Not only do you have to secure all your doors, but you should also take notice of your windows, garage, and entire security system. There are many effective ways to protect your home from burglars. The following are some of the ways:
Secure all doors
The door is the easiest point of entry for intruders. Studies show that about 34% of burglars mostly break in through the front door. Consider installing a peephole such that you can see unexpected visitors. A peephole is more secure when compared to a glass window.
Smart locks, strike plates, deadbolts, and video doorbells are another great way of securing the door.
Reinforce your windows
Ensure your windows are secure and lock them every time you leave your home or go to bed. To ensure latches hold up against blunt force, install window bars and strengthen the glass using a window security film.
Keep your garage secure
The garage door is usually easily accessible because it tends to be weak. Ensure the latch is locked and secure your interior door.
If you keep your car outside, don’t leave your garage door opener clipped inside your car. Thieves can easily smash your window and access your garage by simply pressing a button.
Replace old locks
It’s important to replace all the locks if you’re moving into a new home. Previous occupants might have copies of the keys. Additionally, replace any low-quality locks with ones that can withstand picking.
Install a security system
You can install a security camera as part of a more extensive security system or on its own. Cameras with mobile apps are ideal. They let you view real-time footage through an app on your phone at any time. You can set a timer to turn on lights around the house at various points in the day so your house won’t ever appear unoccupied from the outside.
