All homes are equipped with a lock on their entry doors, however very few are actually equipped with the right one. Your main door and other entry doors (backyard, patio, garage) should be secured with sturdy locks, something like a double cylinder deadbolt, that will provide additional security in case someone tries to pick your lock or enter your home. Alternative entry methods should also be revised: large window, basement windows, open air ducts and others should also be secured with a suitable lock.

Install an alarm system for your Home or Business Security 

Alarm systems are awesome security mechanisms that serve a double purpose. They are designed to alert you and the authorities (depending on your alarm system) in case there are break ins or unauthorized trespassing. Alarms often feature motion sensors and other methods to detect any intruders and are programmed to generate automated messages or phone calls. The second purpose is simple: keep burglars at bay. Burglars are less likely to attempt a break in if a commercial establishment is secured by an alarm system.

Surveillance

It definitely keeps burglars and other criminals at bay, as commercial establishments with surveillance systems are less likely to be burglarized or robbed. If worse comes to worse and a criminal breaks into your commercial establishment, surveillance systems help you identify the criminals, cutting down investigation time and police work.

 

Windows & garages

Windows and garages are often overlooked when securing a home, however criminals and burglars usually gain access through one of these two entrances. Make sure your windows and garages are also locked with sturdy locks. Even small windows can pose a threat because burglars could attempt to open a door or larger window and gain access to the house.
