Ways To Make The Home Secure This Weekend
Securing the home is something we should all take that extra time to do once in a while. It will allow us to have the peace of mind that the family is safe from robbers, and will also mean that all of our belongings are safe and sound in the home. If you want to quickly secure your home this weekend, here are some simple ways you can do it.
- Secure the doors
The doors are the entryways to the home, and because of this you must make sure that you make sure the doors are as secure as they can be. Make sure that your frames are strong and sound, that the hinges aren’t rusty and also that tur door is not hollow. If it is, find a solid door which will give you better protection. You can also make sure that if you have a mail slot, that no one can slide their hand through to try and unlock the door. You can buy door and window sensor units which will work alongside your home security and will go off if someone does try to break in.
- Lock the windows
Your i cows are the next main entry way for burglars, and as long as you already have strong windows with a secure frame there is only one thing you need to make sure to do: lock them. It is ok to have the windows open during the day when you are in the house, however after this you will need to make sure you lock the windows up to prevent burglars seeing this weakness and taking advantage.
- Get a security system
There are tons of amazing home security systems you can buy these days. Some will simply allow you to set alarms when you leave the house, some will integrate with your phone so that you can see through your own cameras. Choose a home security system which is good for you, and make sure you do invest a decent amount of money in making sure it is the best option.
- Get to know your neighbours
It pays to get to know who you live with because these will be the people who you trust to look after your home while you go away on holiday. Make some time to get to know your neighbours and even invite them round for a cup of tea to gain their trust and friendship. This will not only be great for safety, but it will also make your area a much happier place to live.
- Do a drill
Get one of the friends to come to the house and pretend to rob you. Get them to walk around the house looking for anything which is not secure and any easily reachable valuables. For example if you have all of your electrical equipment in the lounge, is it all in plain sight or hidden in a unit? These things will help you work out exactly what you need to change to keep your home secure and safe in the future.
