Home And Business Security Checklist
January 12, 2019
Always remember to double check your home and business security. Be prepared with a home/business security plan before disaster strikes. The more you prepared are, the better chance you have of protecting yourself and your property, Though the best type of security is a monitored security system, there are many different ways to reinforce the security within your home/shop.
Reinforce all exterior doors. Consider replacing plastic or aluminium doors with solid wood or metal clad. If your door has glass inserts, make sure they are reinforced with security glazing. Security glazing is a strong and durable plastic that will keep intruders from breaking the glass to enter your home. The door hinges also need to face inside your home, This way an intruder can’t access the pins and take the entire door off the frame. Keep exterior doors closed and locked when not in use, even if you’re only leaving for a few minutes.
All driveways, pathways, and entry points must be lit. Consider installing motion detectors throughout your property. This will help away any potential intruders.
Use a supplemental lock for your windows with a key operated device. This will keep the window from being forced open from the outside. You could also try out safety bars to completely ensure windows cannot be opened.
Landscape with security in mind. Keep your shrub and bushes trimmed so there is no place for an intruder to hide. Make sure there are no dark areas to hide in as well. Keep your gate latched and shed doors locked. Keep your lawn mower, lawn tools, and grill out of sight on your property.
When away for an extended period, have someone look out for your property. Make sure the lawn is maintained and bushes are trimmed. Suspend newspaper deliveries and mail service while you are away as well. You do not ever want to give the appearance that your home is empty.
