We all want to go the extra mile when it comes to keep­ing our homes and loved ones safe. Hav­ing a great home secu­ri­ty sys­tem will not only pro­tect you, your fam­i­ly, your home, and your valu­able pos­ses­sions from break-ins and intrud­ers, it will also give you peace of mind. Know­ing that you’ve done all you can to secure your home will let you get back to the things that real­ly mat­ter in life.

Here are some essen­tial secu­ri­ty steps you can take, to ensure that your home is as safe as it can pos­si­bly be:

1. A Top-Rate Alarm Sys­tem

New tech­nol­o­gy has made alarms more effec­tive than ever. When you are choos­ing an alarm pack­age, look for one that offers remote ser­vices, putting noti­fi­ca­tions, alerts, and mobile con­trol all in your pock­et, via your smart­phone.

2. Strate­gi­cal­ly Placed Sur­veil­lance Cam­eras

Sur­veil­lance cam­eras work to deter or catch bur­glars, as well as giv­ing you visu­al access to your whole home. While the top rea­son for sur­veil­lance cam­eras is to pre­vent break-ins, many peo­ple also use them to mon­i­tor chil­dren, pets, or guests.

Secu­ri­ty cam­eras with 360-degree cov­er­age and high video res­o­lu­tion gives you the best chance at iden­ti­fy­ing intru­sions, or oth­er sus­pi­cious behav­ior. With Smart Home Ser­vices video can be streamed from your smart­phone instant­ly, giv­ing you remote access and con­trol.

3. Phys­i­cal Pro­tec­tion

With all this new home secu­ri­ty tech­nol­o­gy, it can be easy to get caught up in remote­ly con­trolled alarms, and sur­veil­lance cam­eras. It’s impor­tant not to for­get that the sim­plest, most effec­tive steps to home secu­ri­ty are the ones that have with­stood the test of time!

Installing high-secu­ri­ty locks, and replac­ing old locks and dead­bolts are impor­tant steps to pro­tect­ing your prop­er­ty. The best lock in the world is worth­less if it’s attached to a weak door or door­frame. Con­sid­er replac­ing or rein­forc­ing weak doors or door­frames.

Secu­ri­ty bars and gates are also effec­tive ways to keep bur­glars and oth­er unwant­ed guests out. Win­dow bars may make you think of a prison, but there are many ways to make them look great.

One last step that’s def­i­nite­ly tried-and-true: a good old-fash­ioned safe. There’s no way your aver­age bur­glar would ever be able to break into a high qual­i­ty safe. Store your valu­able items and doc­u­ments in a safe, so that in the unfor­tu­nate case of a break in, you know your most valu­able items will still be pro­tect­ed.
