4 Simple Steps to Improve Your Home Security

Protecting your family and your property is often a top concern when you’re a homeowner. The good news? There are some very simple and easy measures you can take to help immediately boost your home’s security and reduce your risk for a break-in or theft.

Here are the 4 simple steps:

1. Keep Your Doors and Windows Locked

Though it might sound too straightforward, ensuring that your windows and doors are locked is still one of the most effective ways of deterring burglars. Did you know? Statistics have shown that approximately 30% of all home invasions are unforced, meaning they occur through an unlocked door or window.

When it comes to your doors and windows:

  • Make sure the frames are strong and the hinges are protected
  • Have peepholes and/or deadbolts installed
  • Ensure your mailbox is not big enough for someone to slip their hand into and unlock your door
  • Have key-operated levers

2. Install an IP Surveillance Camera

For an additional layer of home security, consider installing IP surveillance cameras in your house. These are advanced digital cameras which, unlike CCTV cameras, can send and receive data via a computer network, allowing you to remotely keep an eye on your home.

They offer many benefits, including:

  • It enhances your home security system
  • Allows you to monitor your home from anywhere
  • Can be installed indoors and outdoors for more control over your entire house
  • Prevent and deter crime
  • Reduce your home insurance premiums

Whether you want to keep a closer eye on your children or want more control over the activities in your home, an IP Security Camera could be just the home security product you need.

3. Add Outdoor Lighting

While outdoor lighting can add beauty and dimension to your home, it’s also an integral part of an effective home security system. Thoughtfully designed and placed security lighting can protect your loved ones by:

  • Discouraging would-be intruders from targeting your home by increasing the risk of being caught.
  • Allowing for physical detection and facial recognition.
  • Minimising any hiding spots
  • Increasing your sense of safety.

TIP: Place lights around your front and backyard. Use lights that come equipped with motion sensors for added protection. An intruder might be less inclined to break in if there’s a spotlight on them.

 

4. Eliminate Any Hiding Places

While shrubs and bushes may give your house increased curb appeal, they also provide potential burglars with a handy place to hide. Trim down trees and plants close to your home that could be used for cover and opt for smaller flower pots instead.
