Having locks installed that are virtually pick and bump proof, keys that are restricted or can’t be duplicated, or offer other drill resistant features to strengthen your home’s security are all precautions you may consider when burglar-proofing your home. In some cases, you might just want to have metal door/bolt guards installed to prevent door lock prying. Large peephole viewers, door scopes or surveillance cameras allow for greater visibility and personal recognition without opening your door. The more defenses you install the less likely you will be a victim of home invasion.
The longer it appears or would potentially take a criminal to enter your residence the greater likelihood they will leave to ‘seek easier prey.’ A common misconception about home security is that security alarms stop would-be intruders, they don’t; good locks and lighting do! Sounding alarms mainly serve to shorten the amount of time a criminal remains on premises and alert security alarm staff or the police.
Waiting to replace, add or upgrade your house locks and other security defenses until after a break-in is a very common mistake. Just because your home, or neighborhood even, has never experienced a break-in does not mean you are immune to one. The security of your family is paramount, act now to have your home security accessed free of charge – without the high-pressure sales pitch!
