The home is where the heart is correct? We know that keeping you and your family safe is at the top of your list of priorities, and in addition to locking your door at night there are a few other things you can do to ensure that you and your family are as safe as possible.
First thing on the list is upgrading your existing locks. Most locks on homes in America are a very standard lock easily picked or “bumped” by criminals. By installing a pick proof high security lock you are not only making you and your family safer but also making it extremely harder for the criminal to try to break in. Your local locksmith will be able to assist you in choosing the right lock for your specific door and since the locksmith knows what methods criminals are using to gain access into your home he can provide you with the best lock to defend your home from these creeps.
Another device you can install to your door to make it even more secure is this new gadget called the Door Devil. This product is designed to fit into your door jamb and make it impossible to kick in, now you may be thinking who in their right mind is going to try to kick in my door this isn’t the movies. Well after you install those new high security locks and the thieves are unable to break in the quite way their frustration will most of the time get the best of them leading them to try to kick the door in or at least damage it enough that they can manipulate the lock and gain access.
The last way you can increase the level of security at your home is to add a home security system, seems obvious right. These systems vary in what features them offer and how they can provide you and your family with more security. Most of them put a device on your entry doors so that when the alarm is set and the door opens an alarm sounds, usually triggering a call to the local police department or at least the security company you are using. Some other features that usually cost more are motion sensors which will go off if you have a pet or are a sleep walker, also window alarms and even door knob sensors. The window alarms are a nice touch because most thieves will notice the Slomin shield on the front lawn and try to get in through a window. In addition to a home security system adding in a few CCTV cameras never hurt. These cameras are small and can be placed just about anywhere. For people with a large amount of land or valuables located outside the home CCTV cameras are a great investment.
