Summer is approaching fast and as the weather warms up, we tend to leave more windows open or unlocked for the fresh spring air. However, an open window poses a significant security risk and can make your home an easy target for burglars.
Spring is also time when we tend to spend less time inside and more time out enjoying the sun. Burglary is a crime of opportunity and empty houses become easy targets for break-in.
Here are some tips to make your home safe this spring
Look for Security Loopholes
Put yourself in the shoes of burglar. Step out and look around to see if you can spot easy ways to break into your own home. Start walking around your home and see if there are any security loopholes. Properly check the garage door, laundry door and windows. By putting yourself into the mind of a burglar, you can better protect your home.
Cut Back the Hiding Places Overgrown hedges and bushes provides the perfect hiding spot for the burglars. Make sure to trim them so they are not over grown potential hiding places. Also, take care to ensure there are no gardening or home maintenance tools lying around. They can become the burglar’s tools to access your home.
Install Motion Detection Lights
When it comes to security, we should leave no leaf unturned. Add motion detecting lights to all the entrance points in your home. It is an easy and affordable addition to any home to deter intruders.
Invest in Good Home Security System
Get yourself some peace of mind by investing in a good home security system that suits your lifestyle and budget. From motion detection to CCTV and smart home security, a good home security system can provide you much more than you think.
