Scared by the Monsters This Halloween? RBM Lock & Key Can Help Improve Your Home Security
Does the monsters that you saw over Halloween still have you shook? If so, maybe it’s time to beef up the security of your home! Here are five steps that you can take right now to improve the security of your house to keep your family safe:
- Install High Security Locks
- Install a CCTV System
- Keep Your Windows and Doors Locked at All Times
- Light Up the Exterior Of Your Home
- Make it Appear that Someone is Home
One of the best ways to improve the security of your home is to install high security locks in all of your exterior doors. These locks are impossible to pick, and the only way to get through them is to destroy the lock completely. This eliminates the threat of someone picking a lock and sneaking in undetected. At RBM Lock & Key we provide high security locks and can also install them as well.
Another way to keep your home safe is to install a CCTV system. These systems link cameras to a central hub and can help you monitor activity inside and outside of your home. Even the appearance of security cameras on the exterior of your home can really deter would-be burglars from following through with a break in. If you’re interested, RBM Lock & Key can help get you set up!
There’s no point in paying for fancy, secure locks if you never use them. Yes, high security locks are great, but if you don’t lock your doors burglars can still walk right in. Even if you live in a safe neighborhood, break ins can still happen. Windows are another area that burglars search for entry, so be sure to double check that your windows are all locked as well. Keep your family and home safe by ensuring that all doors and windows are locked.
Burglars like to remain stealthy, which is why they look for certain things when they case a home. One thing that will entice them, is if you have a poorly lit exterior. This allows them to get up close to your house while limiting neighbor or passerby detection. Installing exterior lights is easy and you can purchase what you need right from your local home improvement store. Take it a step further and choose a motion-sensor light to alert youwhen there is movement!
Most burglars want to make a quick entry and exit when they break into a home. By limiting interactions with home owners, they decrease the possibility of harm or detection. A dark house is a prime target for burglars. That is why it is important to give the appearance that someone is home. Turn lights on even when you’re gone. If you’re on vacation, be sure to hold your mail and have some lights set on a timer.
