Tips for a secure home

2nd Jul '16 • By Emily Ayers

If you are looking for tips that can make your home secure, these suggestions will lend you helping hand. These simple safety measures can help prevent any possible future break-in.


In this modern era, the need for safety has increased significantly. Almost every home has a unique way of safeguarding its belongings. Regardless of how safe your house or neighbourhood is – you should follow a predestined set of principles to protect your home and make it secure.

Lock Up Your Home
Where possible, your house should be locked. There are also secure locking systems on the market that can detect break-ins and alert authorities. These systems are extremely effective if you intend to leave or go on holidays for a period of time.

Clear Line of Sight to the Street
If you’re building a new home, it’s always a good idea to keep a clear line of sight to the street. Homes that are dark and have an obstructed view are ideal for break-ins. If your home doesn’t currently have a view from the street it would be wise to opt for tree removal or invest in solar garden lights to increase security.

Security Screens
Apart from modifying your homes landscape, security screens and doors can protect your property too! Security screens are made of strong material that can’t be broken easily, even with a large amount of force.

Use a Safe
Never be careless with your valuables. Precious jewellery, excess cash, and other important items should be stored within a safe. Safes come in all different shapes and sizes to fit your needs.


Friendly Neighbourhood
Last but certainly not least, make friends with your neighbours. Neighbours can collect your mail when your away and keep a watchful eye on your property in your absence.
