With the rising crime rates in Calgary, investing in a comprehensive home security system is more important than ever.

Taking concrete home security steps to prevent a burglary from happening can go a long way toward making your entire family feel secure in your home.

Some products that can help you do that include:

1. IP Cameras

IP surveillance cameras are one of the most crucial components of a home security system and significantly lower your risk of becoming a victim of burglary.

Home security has made some incredible advancements in the recent years, allowing our clients to keep an eye on their houses from anywhere in the world.

Home automation is a great and convenient technology that allows you to access your home security system from a remote point such as a smartphone, computer or tablet.

However, home automation allows homeowners to control much more than their security. You also have access to other aspects of your home including:

  • Thermostats
  • Door locks
  • Lighting
  • A convenient way to monitor your pets

3. Wireless Alarm System

Wireless alarms are one of the best forms of home security. In fact, studies have indicated that 83% of burglars will check to see if a house as an alarm system before breaking in and 60% of them would seek an alternative target if a home had a such a security system.

With a wireless alarm, you can use your smartphone or tablet to self-monitor your home security system, so you are always aware of what is happening in your house, whether you are there or not.

 

4 Home Security Tips For Protecting Your Home & Loved Ones

Aside from investing in a comprehensive home security system that suits your lifestyle and budget, there are a few simple and easy ways to ensure your home is kept safe while you are on holiday or in the office.

These include:

1. Schedule regular checkups

One of the best ways to protect your home when you’re away is by asking your neighbors or family for help.

Ask that they be aware of anything that might make the house look unoccupied such as:

  • Packages on the front doorstep
  • Overgrown lawn
  • A full mailbox

In addition, you may want to give them your vacation contact information in case of an emergency.

2. Lock everything

While this may seem obvious, be sure to lock EVERY POSSIBLE entry to your home when you leave.

This includes your main door, back door/windows and garage door which usually stay unlocked or un-deadbolted.

Before you go on vacation, make sure to go through the home to ensure that all possible entryways are locked.

3. Be careful of social media

In today’s world, every holiday is instantly shared on the internet for the entire world to see.

While it can be tempting to post photos as soon as you take them, this also broadcasts that your home is empty and your property vulnerable.

While you should feel free to share your great pictures, it may be a good idea to wait until you return before you do so.

4. Hire a house sitter

If you’re going to be away from home for a long period of time, hiring a trustworthy house sitter could be a good security measure.

A professional house sitter can have many responsibilities including watering the plants, getting your mail and even looking after your pets.
