Within our homes, nearly all of us are safe We’re also trying our best to make the home free from calamity inside and outside. But the main reason that the house is dangerous is not the environment or nature it’s the individuals who have turned their lives to unlawful means.Security Services Cape Town
Stats also say that single-family dwellings are 15% more likely to be targeted by home invaders. Burglars and robbers can have many strategies to invade your home security and rob you of your precious possessions and can also be a threat to your life if you don’t have a proper defence mechanism.
A lot of people think that their home is safe from the invasions by just putting up an advanced lock system. But as the securities in homes advance, so do the techniques of the miscreants. You must know about the safety level of your home to know if your home is vulnerable to invasions. There are certain factors that make your home unsafe.
Keeping a Spare Key Outside the House
Many of us keep a spare key hidden outside the house as a contingency for times when we might lock the keys inside the house or have lost the keys outdoors. The burglars and invaders also know of this human psychology and they can easily find the keys to your house by guessing the places that you might hide your key. Once they have the key, even the alarm might not trouble the intruders and they can easily take whatever they want in less time.
Ignoring Second Entry Point
A lot of houses have a second entry point at the back or side of the house. These entry points can be connected to the basement and can be ignored very easily while leaving the house. Most of the time the front door is kept a priority for home security. But the back door can be an easy entry point for invaders. The trend of having glass doors for back entry can be a foolish decision in secluded areas or areas with higher rates of home invasions. Opt for steel bar doors for your back and front entries for extensive protection.
Signs of an Empty House
It should come as no surprise that burglars and thieves will always target the homes that are unoccupied for a long time. Leaving your house with obvious signs that it is unoccupied will attract the attention of invaders. Filled up trash cans, days of mail and newspaper accumulated at the front door and lights out in the evenings make it evident that the house is unoccupied. Try adding a mail slot on your front door so the mail can be delivered inside and doesn’t show. Pause the subscription for your newspaper or magazines for the period that you are leaving the house to make it look occupied.
Leaving a house unoccupied or not having home security measures can cost you a lot from your property and could even pose a threat to your life.
