5 WAYS TO SECURE YOUR HOME

Make sure that home is safe, secure and threat proof and get a piece of mind whether you're close by or out travelling.

Here are 5 things you can do to ensure your family's safety and improve your security:

 

1. Walls & Fences

If you're looking for security and privacy, these security parameters are the most common go to's:

Devil's fork is easy to install, minimum maintenance is required, looks good, doesn't cost a fortune and gets the job done. A brick wall, on the other hand, provides more privacy and more options to customise.

 

2. Sector your garden

Don't let your garden obstruct your vision but allow it to divide your home into sectors that could help improve security overall. Cut, remove or replant bushes and hedges to divide your home into easy surveillance sectors.

 

3. Lights

Add extra security and eliminate any options hiding spots and out of vision areas. Illuminating driveways, door areas, fences and garden sectors 

There are a lot of options to choose from including floodlights, motion detectors or just illuminators from LED / CFL / Solar.

 

4. Protect your privacy

Simple things like blinds or curtains can eliminate the temptation of any intruder having a look inside your home to access your valuables.

It doesn't mean that you have to hide behind them, but provide a barrier of privacy especially during the evenings and late nights.

 

 

5. Reinforce your doors

Ensure that your entrances are solid and hard to breach. Solid doors and bolt locks are recommended. Security gates are also extra things to look out for.

 


Be safe, secure and have a piece of mind.
