How to Make Your Home More Secure

Without a doubt, the best home security measures are those that involve creating a physical barrier against intruders. 

While CCTV security cameras, alarm systems and spotlights can all help to deter criminals, they do not have the capacity to physically stop them from entering your property. 

The ideal solution is to install security screens on all doors and windows at your home. This can be done in addition to other security measures for utmost peace of mind, but also work very effectively on their own. 

Are Security Screens Really That Effective? 

The old security screens seen on front doors all over Australia have been greatly improved upon since their introduction decades ago. 

While grille screens featuring a diamond or geometric design with a fly screen fitted behind do offer a measure of protection, mesh screens are the gold standard. 

Crimsafe security screens use high-tensile steel mesh fixed into a high-strength aluminium frame using screw clamp technology. 

These screens are then securely fixed into place and in the case of doors, utilise a triple locking mechanism that sees the door latched into three separate places in the frame

The combination of all these factors means that these screens are virtually impenetrable. They cannot be pulled, pushed, cut or torn from your home’s access points. 

This means that in the event of an attempted break-in, your family and home remain secure and you are given precious time to escape and call the police. 

Why You Should Create A Family Home Security Plan

Just as you are encouraged to have a fire safety plan for your family home, having a security plan in place is also recommended. 

To better understand what this should include and what to discuss with your family, we have provided a step-by-step guide below on what to do in a security emergency.

What to Do During a Home Invasion: A Step-by-Step Guide

Home Break-In

If the worst occurs and you do experience a home invasion, it is important to do the following:

Remain Calm

As hard as it is, you must remain calm as this will allow you to make better and safer decisions for yourself and your family. Panic can cloud your judgment and put you at further risk.

Call For Help

The first thing you should do is call for help. Remember in Australia this means calling 000, do not call 911 like they do in the movies! 

Law enforcement call operators will dispatch help immediately and may stay on the line with you until the police arrive. 

Follow their instructions as best you can as they need you calm and want to help you as much as possible to stay safe. 

Hide, Stay Quiet & Avoid Confrontation

If an intruder is already within your home, it is best to hide and stay as quiet as you can. You should always avoid confronting intruders as this is more likely to lead to injuries or even fatalities. 

No possessions are worth losing your life over, so wherever your family members remain safe and hidden, you should too. 

Escape If Safe

If an opportunity presents itself to leave the property unseen while the intruders are inside, you should do so, so long as it is safe.

Crimsafe security screens, while designed to keep intruders out, also come with a Safe-S-Cape mechanism. This allows you to release the screen in an emergency and get out of a chosen window. 

Remain Compliant

If confrontation does occur with an intruder, it is recommended to remain as compliant as possible. 

Confrontation will only inflame the situation and has the potential to lead to far more serious outcomes than theft of possessions or damage to the home. 

Once help arrives, remember to continue being calm and compliant, it may not be immediately obvious to police who the intruder is, so listen carefully and do as asked until safety is assured. 

The Importance of Family Security in Preventing Home Invasions


If you find the idea of navigating a home invasion terrifying, you’re not alone! Thankfully, taking proactive, rather than reactive steps towards your home security measures can help you avoid this. 

This may look like updating your home security as well as taking practical steps such as locking gates, moving ladders or bins away from windows and keeping trees and shrubs trimmed for better visibility. 

However, as seasoned experts in this industry, we believe security screens are the best solution against home invasion. Able to last for decades and perform at their optimal capacity with minimal maintenance, they represent a great investment in your home’s long-term security. 

The Many Benefits Offered By Security Screens

Installing security measures, such as security screens delivers a host of benefits including:
