Keeping your home safe from intruders

Taking the time to implement some key strategies to keep your home safe may mean the difference between a secure home and dealing with the nasty after effects of a burglary. 

There are many innovative and often simple ways to make sure your home remains secure from the threat of intruders. Here’s just a few of them. 

Invest in the best security screens and doors 

At North Coast Blinds & Security, we know first-hand the difference good quality screen doors and windows can make to intruders being able to access your home. 

As the strongest stainless-steel security system on the market Crimsafe security doors and Crimsafe windows are the best investment to ensure proper protection against intruders, and also provide you with peace of mind. 

Crimsafe products are put through ongoing rigorous testing and consistently exceed industry standards for strength and performance.

They are knife shear tested, kick proof, and designed with 304-grade stainless steel for enhanced durability and strength. Tamper resistant screws and clasps keep the screen’s integrity. Crimsafe won’t buckle under attack from lever tools (like screwdrivers) unlike some other security screens that have weak points in their construction – making it easy to lever apart the frame, lock or hinges.

Protect Your Information

Stealing your mail is a common way for thieves to learn important information about you. Your mail can reveal a number of things about you including  which bank you are with, purchase history and possible holiday information. A post office box or security mailbox requiring a key can be an easy way to ensure thieves cannot access your personal information. Also be conscious about the type o information you share with others. This includes waiting until you are home to post holiday pictures on social media to avoid being targeted via your online profile. 

Secure your Spare Keys and Fobs 

Having spare keys is very useful if you misplace your original set or need to give them to friends to enter your house while you’re away. However spare keys can also be the easiest way an intruder can enter your home. Rather than hiding spare keys in the garden or under a door mat, it’s best to put your spare keys in a lock box. Don’t leave your garage opener or key fobs in your car overnight as this can provide easy access to your home with a mere push of a button. 

Let there be light

Burglars prefer dark environments as they can remain hidden easily and it helps them “scope out” your home. In addition to keeping your front and back yards free of foliage than can conceal burglars, consider also installing security lights around your home. Motion sensor lights are a great alternative to the traditional porch lights as they save on energy – only turning on when motion is detected. Another simple tip is to leave timed lights and/or music on while you are away. This can give the impression that you’re home when you may not be and act as a deterrent to possible intruders.
