Home burglary statistics are anything but reassuring in the United States, where one burglary occurs every 13 seconds. Moreover, about three out of four homes are likely to be broken into in the next 20 years, so prevention is key and advanced security is a must. It is imperative to use a variety of enhanced protection solutions if you wish to keep your loved ones and prized possessions safe from the sticky hands of burglar and the prying eyes of neighborhood thieves.
Many people are interested in using something more than the basic locks on their front doors to keep the peril away. Some of these solutions work better than others. Knowing which home security myths have been debunked is what could help you avoid a great deal of the hassle.
A sturdy lock on your main entryway topped by a well-functioning alarm system with sensors and interior and exterior surveillance cameras is an ideal combo. Very few thieves will take a chance here. No one wants to be thrown into the spotlight while trying to cut a lock with an electric saw or in the middle of the night.
Needless to say, your locks should be locked at all times, whether you are home or not. You could opt for an electronic or smart lock that will automatically lock the door behind you when you are leaving the house. There are locks that will record all entries and alert you about any suspicious activity inside the house. The alerts will be sent straight to your phone so you can act upon them immediately.
Opt for trusted lock brands such as Kwikset and have your new locks installed by a professional locksmith with experience in the field. The Locksmiths Pros team is here to assist you with realistic recommendations and practical help with lock installation and alarm fitting. We also handle lock repairs, key duplication, peephole installation and other types of residential and commercial security solutions.
Window bars are also excellent thief deterrents that work well, especially on ground-floor windows. If you need something more advanced, a small-keyed lock with movement sensors for your windows should do the trick. You could also consider fitting a surveillance system around the house, or at least one monitoring camera on your patio or in the alley to keep potential burglars away.
