Is your home really as safe as you think it is? You might want to ask your self these questions occasionally to gauge the level of security your home needs to safeguard you and your family.
Where Are Your Entranceways Located?
Your front door is one of the most targeted places for burglars to enter, especially if it’s out of clear view. Backyard sliding glass doors are also an easy access point for thieves. Don’t run the risk of being broken into – security cameras and video surveillance can reduce your chances of theft considerably.
Do You Have Hidden Walkways?
If you have dark walkways or areas surrounding your home, you may be vulnerable to a break-in. Dim and hidden areas are perfect for concealing burglars. Instead, opt for wireless motion detectors and low light security cameras to keep your home illuminated and protected.
Is Your Garage Secure?
Another easy access point for thieves is through the garage. If your garage has windows, an outdated door lock, and entry points that are out of clear view, your safety could be in jeopardy. Video surveillance and an alarm system can help prevent crime before it even happens.
Do You Outdated Windows?
Does your home have outdated ground floor windows? If so, they could be lacking adequate security features. Burglars love using ground floor windows as a way to enter homes. If your security is weak in this area, consider upgrading to window alarms and security cameras.
Is Your Neighbourhood Safe?
When you’re located on a busy street and are surrounded by multiple homes, then you might not need as much security as opposed to if your home is tucked away on a quiet street. You should also ask whether your street is well lit at night or not. Dark streets are more prone to break-ins than well-lit ones.
Also, consider whether your neighbours have security systems installed. If so it might be an indication that break-ins are common in your neighbourhood. If this is true, you might become an easy target if everyone around you has a security system to protect their home.
Do You Have Adequate Fire Devices?
Regular fire detectors only work if you’re at home, and even then, they don’t always work if the batteries are low or if they were improperly installed. If you’re not one for performing routine safety inspections or if your home is vacant most of the day, you should consider installing a security system that works around the clock and will notify you and the authorities if there’s ever a fire.
Is Your Home Protected From Carbon Monoxide Gas?
If you don’t have a carbon monoxide detector in your home, you could end up with carbon monoxide poisoning that can be fatal. This gas cannot be detected by sight, smell or taste. Adding a security system that includes a carbon monoxide alarm will ensure you can get to safety quickly if the gas ever enters your home.
