Do you want to keep your home safe from burglars? There are many simple things you can do to make your home more secure and better protected from burglars. Here are four simple home renovations you can make to keep your home safe from burglary.
The first is to install a home alarm system. A home alarm system is a must if you want your home to be secure from burglars. If someone tries to attempt a burglary in your home, the alarm will go off and scare them away immediately.
The second renovation you should do is to install security cameras. Security cameras will let you stay on top of everything that is going on around your home. If someone tries to do anything suspicious on your property, they will be caught on camera. If someone is found lurking, perhaps stalking to find out when you are away, you will be able to detect that person on camera and hand the videotape over to the police, for them to start investigating.
Having security cameras is essential for another reason, too: burglars target homes that aren’t equipped with video surveillance. Burglars do not want to get caught and tend to avoid security cameras that capture critical evidence.
The third renovation you can do is to install lights all around your doors and windows. Lighting will scare away burglars because they are afraid of and vigilant against passersby who may spot them in the act. If your house is dark at night and has no outdoor lighting, it becomes an easy target for burglars. Remember, you want to make your home a hard target, not an easy one.
The fourth renovation you can do is to install better locks on doors and windows. Your front and back doors should have double locks. For glass doors, consider getting a triple lock. Having double or triple locks makes your home more secure. It becomes harder to break into, as it takes double (and triple) the work. In addition, if you forget to lock one lock at night, the other lock may suffice to keep it secure. You can have both a combination and a key lock, to acquire both convenience and security. You can secure your windows by using good locks and by installing shatterproof glass.
