How To Protect Your Home

By Property Management

The Australian Bureau of Statistics reported that 242,500 households had a break-in last year. In our opinion, that’s 242,500 households too many. Here we have some low-cost ways to reduce the chances of your home being targeted.

Front yard visibility

Burglars work in the shadows. They will look for homes that allow them to go undetected. Look for ways to make entry points around your home more visible and they will think twice before attempting to break in.

Protecting sides of your home

Intruders often look for windows at the sides of the house. At night, they are completely invisible and can take their time breaking in. Install security lighting with motion detectors on the sides of your house. The motion detectors will turn on the lights. As soon as the lights go on, the potential intruders will run away.

Get a home security system

You can use a home security system to monitor your home when you are at work or on holidays. Most home security systems today come with apps for your smartphone.

Security doors

Security doors protect you in more ways than one. When an intruder sees a security door, they see a home that takes security seriously. Even if they’re still tempted to break in, they’ll think twice because they now have to get through two doors to gain access to your home.

Window safety

Intruders often enter through windows. The average window can be surprisingly easy to open, even if you’ve installed a light-duty latch. A locksmith can install window locks that make it difficult or impossible for intruders to open windows.
