If you have ever experienced a break-in at your home, you’ll understand how unsettling it can be. Jumping at every little sound and feeling that your privacy has been violated. Even if you have never had your home broken into, it is something everyone hopes to avoid.
Thankfully, there is no need to feel unsafe in your own home; with the right security measures in place, you can protect your loved ones and possessions from burglary and vandalism.
Want to learn more about how to protect your home, its occupants and the expensive items it contains? We’re here to show you how.
Our Top Tips For Deterring Break-ins
With years of experience in the home security industry, we know what it takes to keep your home safe and discourage burglars from trying to gain access.
Far from simply installing quality door locks, there are several steps you can take to minimise the chance of a break-in at your home.
Here are some tips to get started:
1. Install Security Screens
This is especially important to do on your front door. The installation of security screens helps to deter potential thieves and gives you peace of mind that your family is safe inside your home.
Acting as a secondary barrier, security screens on doors and windows, particularly high-quality ones such as those offered by Crimsafe, allow you to enjoy fresh air without compromising on security.
2. Consider Instaling A Security System
The benefits of having security cameras are many, though this is often an expensive option that requires consistent upkeep to ensure it works properly. Admittedly some DIY home security systems are much more affordable and connect with your smartphone for easy surveillance.
These systems give you the ability to check on your property, anytime, anywhere and can notify you if someone breaks into your home, even when you’re not there.
3. Keep Your Valuables Hidden
Pay attention to where you keep your valuables. Don’t leave your jewellery or electronics out in the open where they can be seen from the street or through a window. This makes them easy targets and will encourage burglars to try to gain entry.
Another good idea is to install a personal safe where you can securely lock items when leaving the house.
4. Educate Your Children About Safety Procedures
Not only important in the event of a break-in, but it is also essential to teach children not to answer the door if they don’t know who is there and to keep sliding doors and windows locked also. If they are home during a break-in, they should know to hide in a safe place until help arrives.
5. Have A Plan
Do you know what to do in the event of a break-in? This could include calling the police, hiding in a safe place or leaving the house until help arrives.
6. Regularly Test Your Security Measures
Always make sure your security measures are working properly and are not damaged. This includes checking that your alarm is activated and that all doors and windows are locked securely. It also means checking security screens for damage or if they have become loose.
