Burglaries have been rampant these days. They happen indiscriminately, ranging from residential to commercial places, rented or owned. What matters to these individuals is they can take something of value. There are times when lives were harmed and/or lost because of these unfortunate incidents.
To avoid becoming part of these alarming statistics, one needs to be prepared and equipped against such events. Here are several key points to know and ponder upon.
Aim for higher security measure.
Homes or premises need to have a limited entry-exit door. This will reduce the risk of unauthorized entries to the place. Make sure that these doors are installed with high security locks. Coordinate with a professional locksmith, ask about the latest and most secure equipment that is available in the market. Example, double deadbolts ensures forced entry is near impossible. Be sure to ask your locksmith to install a window lock. Just make sure it stays closed and locked, during the night or when the house is empty.
Remember to keep your valuable items in a secure and safe place too. Have a properly installed ‘safe’ or make sure that your cabinet and/or drawers where you keep them have good locks also.
Find the ‘weak’ spots in your premises.
As the saying goes, ‘prevention is better than cure.’ And so it is also important to note if there are areas where a thief or a burglar can possibly go. An outside shed or storage need to be kept closed and secured; valuable items are not for such locations. There should be limited access to your garage as well.
Seek professional advice from your locksmith on what measures are necessary to make your outside premises more secure against intrusion. They can even help you in installing motion sensors or surveillance cameras to help you monitor activities in your surroundings.
Familiarize yourself with the community where you live in.
Acquaint yourself with the neighborhood. Get to know the people living around you and make them aware that you are a part of the community. Your neighbors could be one of your best assets in matters of personal security. They can look after your place when you’re not around or inform you of any untoward incidents.
