In order to make our house more secure we should first identify any potential threats. One of the greatest threats to the security of your house is burglary, also known as home invasion.
House burglaries may occur at any time of the day or night, especially when no one is at home. We all think that if we lock the doors at night that we are safe. And that might be true but let’s talk about the first floor of your house. Do you really check the locks on ALL of your doors at night or when you leave the house? What about your windows – are they all locked?
Hopefully the answer to that question is yes. But is it enough? Can’t someone just silently break your window and unlock it? It’s pretty easy to do, especially for burglars who have the tools and a lot of experience to go with it.
The same for doors – don’t you think that these creeps have ways to getting through the doorway? You better believe it or else there wouldn’t be so many burglaries every year.
Home Security Products are the best way to help make your doors and windows more secure. One way is to attach a Door Alarm or Window Alarm to each area. These items are small, inexpensive and really work. They give off a very loud and annoying sound that will alert everyone in the house that someone is trying to get in to do some harm.
These alarms are also often heard by your nearby neighbors, giving them a chance to call 911 and maybe get a good description of the bad buys as they’re running away.
There are also alarms for your outside. Some of these devices will silently notify you inside your house that people are approaching your front door so that you can call the police before they realize they have been detected.
If, for some reason, you don’t want a Door Alarm but still want door protection, there are many inexpensive but very strong Door Braces which will keep bad guys from getting into your house through the door.
You also need to secure your home from threats posed by toxic substances. This is essentially needed to protect your children as well as your elderly parents or relatives. Ensure that you have a safe cabinet where you can lock all of your household cleaning solutions, insecticides and air fresheners. Most of these chemicals are poisonous and can result in sickness and ultimately death if consumed.
Make sure you have the number of your local poison control center to guide you on what to do in case of a poisoning incident.
There are many other Home Security Products to protect your house and these are just a few suggestions. Obviously there are many more and I hope I have given you a start on thinking of more and putting them into use so you won’t become the victim of an accident or crime statistic.
