3 Tips to Improve Your Home Security

There are several things you can do to increase the security of your home, including: installing deadbolt locks, motion sensor lights and security cameras.

Below are 3 tips to improve your home security:

Installing Deadbolt Locks

All exterior doors should have at least 1 inch thick dead bolt locks. Although more expensive than spring latch locks, dead bolts are much stronger and provide significantly more protection. When installing deadbolts, make sure to leave a minimal amount of space between the door and its frame, as this provides an opportunity for an intruder to pry the door apart. Doors can be reinforced with plywood or a piece of sheet metal. Source: AllState.com

Installing Motion Sensor Lights

These are useful to install, especially at the back of a house or apartment. Infra-red motion sensor lights are also easily available and not very expensive. An unexpected light going on is a definite deterrent to a burglar who will wonder what other security devices you have in place. Source: AFGOnline.com.

Installing Security cameras

Another great deterrent, security cameras are an easy way to improve the safety of your home. These are the perfect device because they act as a clear deterrent, whilst also ensuring you have a high level of visibility at all times.

As there are over one million burglaries and attempted burglaries every year, increasing visibility and monitoring at your home is essential and these devices could help catch assailants responsible for breaking into your home. Source: PolicyExpert.co.
