Many homeowners may understand home security’s importance but don’t necessarily know how to achieve it. Also, with so many types of security solutions on the market, it can be challenging to know where to start.

Other homeowners may believe their homes are already safe but may not realize there are serious vulnerabilities that increase their risk of burglary and intrusion.

A home security audit provides homeowners the insight to eliminate vulnerabilities and identify the right security deployments for their needs.

This blog post outlines what exactly a home security audit is and why you need one.

What is a home security audit?

A home security audit is assesses a home’s security strengths and weaknesses. The audit is typically performed by a security company and includes a physical inspection of the property and an evaluation of any existing security products, such as alarm systems.

The core goal of a home security audit is to identify ways to make the residence safer and more secure.

Why you need a home security audit

1) Identify your home’s most critical security vulnerabilities

Your home may already be vulnerable to invasion, and you don’t even realize it. Even if you already have a home security system, other weaknesses may allow intruders to easily gain entry. These vulnerabilities can include poor-quality door locks, unsecured windows or weak door frames, to name a few. Other common security gaps, such as dimly lit entryways or unprotected back doors, may make your home a target.

At PROTECTION PLUS, we evaluate your home to identify these vulnerabilities and advise you on how to fix them.

2) Assess existing security systems for flaws or limitations

Older, outdated alarm systems may not provide the protection you expect. If a few years have passed since your security system was installed, then it’s probably time to reevaluate it as part of a home security audit.

Our PROTECTION PLUS experts are well-versed in all types of alarm systems and can identify if your system is falling behind. Our role here is not to push new products onto you but to be transparent about any flaws or limitations in your alarm system. If we believe your existing system is not providing an adequate layer of security, we will detail this in our assessment and explain the reasons why.

3) Propose options for increasing security

It is not enough to merely identify your home’s vulnerabilities. After a home security audit, you should clearly understand the steps you must take to remove those vulnerabilities and make your home safer.

Our security professionals at PROTECTION PLUS will provide no-hassle recommendations and advice on increasing your security based on the findings of your audit. We will outline the highest-priority areas and discuss your options for various security products. But again, there is no pressure or obligation – you are free to implement or ignore our recommendations.

First and foremost, our priority is your security. We want you to feel confident that you are fully informed about your security risks and how to approach them.
