The New Year is just around the corner, and with it comes not only good resolutions for personal development, but also the opportunity to make your home safer. Security around the home should be a priority to ensure a quiet and protected environment. Here are some good resolutions that can help you make your home safer and start 2024 with a sense of security.
1. Security starts at the front door:
Start the year with an inspection of your front door security. Make sure the lock is in good condition and replace it if necessary. Consider installing a modern camera doorbell or smart door lock to better monitor access to your home.
2. Optimize lighting:
Good lighting is an effective deterrent for burglars. Set a goal to optimize the lighting around your home. Install motion sensors that activate lights when someone approaches. This not only increases safety, but also saves energy.
3. Don't forget window security:
Many break-ins occur through windows. Therefore, check whether all windows are securely closed. Additional security measures such as window locks or reinforced glass windows can make a significant contribution to security. It may also be worthwhile to equip windows at risk with video surveillance.
4. Perform periodic maintenance:
Good resolutions should not only be implemented at the beginning of the year, but regularly. Schedule monthly checks of your video doorbell and security cameras to ensure they are working properly and up to date.
5. Visual deterrence through video surveillance signs:
An effective part of the security strategy is clearly communicating your monitoring measures. Make it a goal to place highly visible video surveillance signs at the entrances to your property. These signs signal to potential burglars that your home is being monitored and serve as a visual deterrent. The prospect of being recorded can deter burglars from targeting your property in the first place. These simple but effective signs will help create safety awareness in your neighborhood and protect your home in a preventative way.
6. Garden care for more safety:
A well-maintained garden can not only improve the aesthetics of your home but also increase security. Keep bushes and trees near windows short to avoid hiding places for potential burglars.
7. Involve neighbors:
Community safety is often more effective than individual efforts. Establish good relationships with your neighbors and let them know if you are going to be away for a long period of time. Mutual support can help identify suspicious activity early.
8. Raise security awareness:
Regularly educate yourself and your family about safety issues. Discuss escape routes in the event of a fire, practice proper behavior in the event of a break-in, and remember to always be careful when handling personal information.
