Upgrade your locks

The locks in your home, on your doors and windows, should be as high a standard as possible to heighten its security. Even if you are at home, you won’t want to make entry easy.


Using professional standard locks, like a Mul T Lock, will ensure that your doors at home are protected and less vulnerable to intruders.



Maintain your exterior

Maintaining the exterior of your home will heighten its safety and security. For example, a cracked window could make your home vulnerable and easy to enter by intruders. Fixing that window will make your home less of a target.


Plus, a well-maintained roof and windows will help you prepare your home for winter as no cracks or damages will prevent any leaks. Thus, will maintain and increase your safety.



Exterior lights

Speaking of your home’s exterior, it is also useful to add exterior lights. These will make it look like someone is in, which will deter intruders.


Likewise, no intruder will want to be seen by neighbours or the CCTV cameras even if they know that you aren’t in. Thus, either way, they will ensure to deter intruders and make your home less vulnerable.



CCTV cameras

If your home doesn’t have CCTV cameras, then you will want to consider installing them. They are a great security measure that will deter intruders and also help you keep evidence of anything that happens around your home.


They can be expensive, but they are well worth it for your safety and security.



Automatic interior lights

Although outside lights will help increase your home’s security, inside lights can too. Installing automatic lights inside of your house will mean that your home can stay lit up when you aren’t in.


The beauty of automatic lights is that they will make it look like people are in even if they aren’t. If an intruder is sitting and watching your home and lights randomly turn on in different rooms, they will think that someone is in. Thus, it will deter them from intruding.



Higher fences and trees

Having higher fences and trees around your home will increase privacy as well as security.


No intruder is going to want to climb incredibly high exterior features as it will increase their chances of getting caught.



Smart doorbells

A smart doorbell is great for those times you aren’t in and want to see what’s going on at home, or who is at the door.


You can speak through them, through a phone connection, and watch what is going on. With a smart doorbell, you can have a not so obvious eye on your home at all times. They are more discreet than CCTV cameras, thus are less obvious to intruders.
