Keeping Your Home Safe

Home Security Tips

We all have a fundamental need to feel safe, no matter what age or gender.  And we all except the fact that you cannot trust everyone.  Security should begin at home, where we are in a safe haven, where we can relax and make the most of our own environment, and just be our best selves. Therefore, when considering security many people simply want the best and most secure product that is required to keep families safe.  So, rather than ordering a large quantity of locks for one door, along with several bolts, padlocks and chains, often making sure you choose high quality locks is considered the better option.  Quality over quantity.

Euro cylinders fall into four main categories. Standard security six pin cylinders. One star cylinders that are mainly anti snap (the body snaps before the core keeping the lock integral after attack), two star cylinders (less common), and the highest security being three star cylinders.

Do your research as even three star cylinders have varying reviews and there are better ones on the market than others.

Lock Replacement Blyth

However, understandably, people really want to know what security measures they can put in place before any break in or attempt on their home property occurs.  What can they do to deter any intruders from ‘trying out’ there locks, door and windows?  Below are just a few homes security tips to help you in keeping your home safe.

  1. Lock your homes even when in doors.  Some thieves will scope out a home and area.  If anyone watching perceives that when you go upstairs, or perhaps when you are hoovering, you are less likely to hear your door opening and closing, they will take that opportunity.
  2. Limit access to entrances and exits.  If you have a back garden door, it might be worth considering fencing the area off, and padlocking your garden gates.  These kinds of measures can put intruders off, and make your home less of a target.
  3. Check for vulnerable areas.  Do you have a rooftop that may allow someone entry through a bedroom or bathroom window?  Making sure you put other security measure in place either making it difficult for intruders to climb, or putting in cameras that gives you a good view of any ‘blind spots’ at your property, can also deter intruders.
  4. Consider a security light that activates when a person is around.
