Ensuring proper security in your home is vital to your own safety as well as preventing any of your items from being stolen. Here are some ways you can improve safety at your household.
Think like a burglar
The first step you will have to take in order to protect your home from any burglaries is to think like a burglar, so you can identify the weaknesses to your home. One way of doing this is to think how you would break into your home, whether it is breaking a window and entering from there, or even breaking or pick locking the locks to your doors. By doing so you will be able to take the necessary preventive measures.
Having your house being constantly watched can help alert you to any intruders or even any attempts at breaking into your house. You should consider installing a security camera at your house main entrance and also other important areas of the house which you may have spotted as being potential locations for a break in. You will also need to remotely record the footage so that you can review it in order to identify the suspects. It is also imperative that they are facing the correct angle so that you can identify the face of the burglar.
Set up alarms
You will then want to setup alarms at your main entrances to your house. The alarms will be important in causing the intruders to stop what they are doing and make a run for it and also in alerting you and the neighbours of the break-in. If you own a multi-storey house, don’t overlook the possibility of a possible break-in from one of the top floors rather than only the ground floor. Try to install alarms that can also emit a bright light when triggered, so that you can capture the face of the burglar through CCTV in Singapore. As an added feature you could also have it automatically alert the police.
Leave your lights on
Burglars will usually wait till everyone is asleep or till the house is vacated before they make their break in. Creating some doubt in their minds as to whether or not someone is inside, may put them away from breaking in. You could do this by leaving a room light or porch light on, before you sleep or if you are vacating the house for some time. An alternative would also be to leave a stereo or TV on.
These measures should help improve the security within your household.
