Home security 101: 7 tips to keep your family safe

Protecting your family and home contents are of crucial importance in order to retain peace of mind – regardless of the time of day. You need to ensure that you have certain home security products installed and implement your own home security steps to be sure that your loved ones are safe at all times. Remember, you can never be too cautious or even add a price to home security measures, but it doesn’t mean that you have to break the bank in order to achieve peace of mind.

Keep the following home security tips in mind when evaluating the security of your property:

 

1.       Test your house alarm once a month.

In order to remain confident that your house alarm is still in good working condition, it’s important to test it at least once a month – just remember to inform the security company that your alarm will be in test mode. The last thing you want is to create panic where there is no real emergency.

 

2.       Trim the bushes monthly.

Criminals can easily hide behind thick shrubs in your garden – waiting for the perfect moment when you leave the house to enter through the front door on side windows. In order to eliminate any hiding spots close enough to your home, it’s important to keep the bushes trimmed on a monthly basis – adding to your peace of mind and security.

 

3.       Install residential security window screens.

There’s nothing worse than having to keep your windows locked at all times – never feeling a cool breeze and allowing fresh air to enter your home for an extended period of time. Our window security mesh allows you to open your windows without compromising your safety or peace of mind. Not to mention that bugs will remain out of your living space and your view will remain unspoiled.

 

Containing strands that are 0.9mm (0.035 inches) thick compared to the normal 0.8mm (0.031 inches) thick, this makes our Crimsafe security screens 26.5% thicker at a cross section – resistant to being cut, kicked in or pried loose.

4.       Add motion sensor lighting.

Staying alert doesn’t mean you have to sit by your windows all night in order to spot an intruder. By installing motion sensor lighting to the outside of your home, you can easily spot anyone walking in your garden who isn’t supposed to be there. As simple as it may sound, motion sensor lighting is quite effective.

 

5.       Opt for security screen doors.

Your front door happens to be the number one entry point into your house, which only makes sense to add extra layers of home security to make it quite a bit more difficult for intruders to enter. This is why it makes sense to invest in stainless steel security screens to keep intruders out and offer peace of mind in the form of added home security. Crimsafe Ultimate screens are 40% stronger than the competition – making them strong enough to protect your family from intruders.

6.       Change the locks.

When was the last time that you changed the front and back door locks? It may not seem like an obvious thing to do once moving in. What can go wrong, right? Unfortunately, you have no way of knowing whether the previous tenants still have an extra set of keys, so, in order to give yourself peace of mind, be sure to add it to your list.

 

7.       Remove your gate alarm.

Few criminals are opportunists – waiting for the perfect moment to break in after watching your habits for a few days. However, adding a gate alarm can easily determine whether you’re home or not. It’s best to remove any means of them contacting you which links back to your home – protecting your assets when you’re not at home.
