Your home’s safety and security system in Toronto is of the utmost importance, and protecting it is vital. You want to have the peace of mind that you’ve done everything in your power to protect your home from potential intruders or disastrous accidents. With that in mind, here are a few more key home safety tips to help you keep your home safe.
Windows are a vulnerable point for any home. While doors are generally the first target a thief will have, windows make excellent alternate point of entry. Even if they are securely locked, they can often be broken far easier than a door, letting potential home invaders enter through them. There are a number of ways to reinforce windows for protection – bars, especially on basement and less aesthetically necessary windows are a classic option; burglars can’t squeeze through them, making them a safer potential entry point. In addition, security and safety window films provide a layer of protection, preventing glass from being easily shattered and broken. Protecting your windows can make your home that much more impregnable.
Motion-activated flood lights are another great addition to home security. A burglar values, more than anything else, privacy and secrecy. While night-vision cameras may be able to record their movements in low light, they’ll be safe from the prying eyes of neighbors and other passers-by. Motion-activated flood lights will stop a trespasser in their tracks, shining a blinding light to alert you and anyone else of a trespassers’ presence and scaring them off.
