How to Keep Your Home Safe This Summer
For most people, the two most important things are their family above all else and then their home. Keeping both safe is so crucial and this means keeping unwanted guests away from your property. If you plan on taking any trips once the weather gets warm knowing that your home is safe is critical. In order to make sure that your house is properly defended all summer long, our specialists at Keyed In LLC crafted a list of a few ways that you can protect what means the most to you.
Not only are surveillance cameras great for protecting businesses, but also they do a great job of deterring potential crimes on your property. Consider searching for a system that allows you to watch a live feed from either a mobile device, laptop, or pad. This way you can check in when you are on your dream getaway or if you are at work and cannot actually be present in the home.
We can assist you in designing a custom surveillance monitoring solution for your home or office that meets all of your needs. Whether it is day or night, you will be able to have a clear vision of what is occurring at your home while you are not there.
Light it up
A quick and simple way to deter unwanted guests from your property is to install more lighting. The better someone on the street can see your home an landscaping the better they will be able to witness unusual activity. Many criminals like to work in the dark where they cannot be seen so a smart way to keep away one is to install lighting at all entrances to the home, on the driveway, and in the landscaping. Use a combination of regular lights paired with motion lights so that you can catch a burglar when they least expect it.
Install an access control system
Installing an access control system is just a witty decision for any homeowner. We offer affordable yet effective and innovative access control systems that will allow you to do anything from closing your garage door to unlocking the front door. With these, you will be able to monitor break-ins, fires, lights, and even the thermostat to save you money on your energy bill.
Put up signage
A new access control system will be a great tool for alerting you if anything has gone wrong at your home and will most definitely protect your family, however in some cases posting a sign can also prevent unwanted guests from venturing near your home. If a thief knows that there is potential for an alarm going off as soon as they step into a home then there is a good chance that they won’t even bother going in due to the amount of danger they would be in.
Take Care while away
When traveling, your home is exposed to the risk of crime. So be sure that you are following these steps so that no burglars are tipped off:
Use automatic timers
Have a neighbor pick up deliveries
Use different lights in your home that turn on and off at different times
Hire a landscaper to cut your grass
Ask a trusted friend to move around one of your vehicles
Ask your neighbor to keep an eye on your home
If you follow these necessary steps then your summer vacation will be one to remember for all of the right reasons. Not only this, but you will be able to have peace of mind the entire time knowing that your family and home are protected from potential threats.
