Keeping your home and family safe is a priority for any homeowner. Unfortunately, some homeowners are careless when it comes to the security of their homes, especially when it comes to the windows.
Of course, if someone really wants to break into your home, they are going to do so no matter what precautions you take. However, with most thieves if you don’t make it easy for them, they will just move on.
Here are some ways you can make it a little more difficult for anyone that wants to break in.
Security Windows and Areas Don’t Have Hiding Spaces
Don’t give thieves a place to hide by your windows. They don’t want to be seen, and by having bushes or other objects under your windows you are giving them the chance not to be. Instead keep areas under your windows clear, and put bushes and outdoor furniture in other locations around the yard.
By removing any objects from under your windows, you are also removing something they could climb on to get into the house.
Owners of High Security Windows Use Locks
Whenever you leave you home you make sure that all of the doors are locked, right? So, why don’t you make sure that all of the windows are locked as well.
A thief can get into your home easily through an unlocked window. They don’t have to break the glass to get in; which means that the neighbors don’t hear anything. Once in through the window, they walk right out the door with your stuff.
Alarm Systems Create Security Windows
Many homeowners purchase complicated alarm systems for their home to prevent break-ins. These alarms are wired into the home and an alarm company is notified if someone is trying to get in that shouldn’t be. The alarm company then contacts the police department to go out to the home.
These alarm systems that have this type of monitoring can be expensive, but they are effective in protecting your home from break-ins.
A less expensive way is to purchase a simple alarm system at your local store. These systems attach to your window and the frame on the inside of the home. If someone tries to get into the home through the window, the alarm will be triggered and will release a loud annoying sound. Remember, the thief doesn’t want any attention drawn to them, and this alarm creates security windows that definitely create attention.
