  • Security Measures when Upgrading your Home

    Posted on November 18th, 2017 0 Comments

    blog_chicago

    Home upgrades aren’t just great times to improve the aesthetics and comfort of your home – they are also fantastic opportunities to improve your home security infrastructure! Here’s a guide prepared by Chicago Locksmiths about all the different security measures that you can take into consideration when you are undergoing a home upgrade.

     

    Doors

    Doors are one of the most commonly upgraded parts of a home. Without strong doors, your security is incredibly weak. When upgrading your home, assess how well your doors can hold up to physical attack. This includes all aspects of the door including it’s hinges and it’s frame. Of course, you’re going to want to consider exactly what’s behind the doors as well when you assess how important it’s upgrade is.

     

    Door and Window Locks

    This is an essential part of home upgrades unless you already have an incredibly strong deadbolt lock. You want to make sure that your door locks not only help keep unwanted people out, but don’t place people inside at risk during an emergency where they may have to quickly exit the property. Window lock upgrades should also be taken into consideration after testing the strength of your window locks – especially those that are easily accessible from outside.

     

    Window Films

    Window films are thin protective layers that help increase the security and resistance of glass windows, elevating your security. They prevent burglars from being able to break through your windows to enter your property. They are hard to detect from outside and help make windows shatterproof – but should not be used on windows that are meant to be potentially used as auxiliary emergency exits.

     

    Cameras

    Surveillance cameras can heighten your security when placed outside your front door, allowing you to monitor and maintain your home security. CCTV cameras help deter potential thefts or burglaries, and even a fake mock camera does a great job as a deterrent.

     

    Alarm Systems

    Every home needs a well functioning alarm system. THey help boost the security measures of your building, and often allow you to monitor the status of your home from far away – notifying you if there’s unapproved entry into your home, and automatically contacting the authorities.

     

    Window and Door Sensors

    Like alarm systems, these sensors notify you or the authorities if doors or windows are opened or tampered with in an unapproved context. They often come together with CCTV camera packages, but can also be purchased as stand alone equipment – and they really do help increase the layers of your home security. They are made up of a simple circuit that triggers an alarm when the circuit is broken. One great benefit of these sensors is that they are very difficult to spot, and are small and subtle.
