The Best Places To Put Security Cameras In Your Home

Blog | 19 September 2016

Security cameras are no longer the domain of large companies and organizations; it’s quite common for people to have security cameras in their homes. With the advent of the internet and smaller cameras, homeowners have greater control over security in their homes and have better choices. But having security cameras inside your home doesn’t guarantee protection if they are not strategically placed. To get the most out of your cameras, here are some of the key places you should place your security cameras. Front and Back Doors You might think burglars would avoid these entry points (since they are so obvious), but statistics show that an estimated 22 to 34 per cent of burglars enter through the front and back doors of homes. Therefore, your camera should be strategically placed in these areas, and properly protected from sabotage, either by placing it out of the burglar’s reach or enclosed in a protective case. Ideally, cameras should be placed both inside and outside...

What Do You Need To Look For When Choosing An Alarm Company?

Blog | 12 September 2016

Security is of paramount importance to everyone, and you can no longer rely on simply locking your doors when you leave. There are many alarm companies offering services to protect your home, but which one do you choose? If you’re serious about protecting your home, you should be looking for certain qualities to be able to select the best company.

Top Home Safety Tips

Blog | 22 August 2016

As a homeowner, you are likely keenly aware of how vulnerable your house can be to a break-in. Any points of entry, such as windows and doors, and knowledge that the house is unoccupied and unsecured, presents a tantalizing opportunity to a thief. So, in order to make your house look like just too much of a risk for a burglar, consider adopting the following measures: Believe it or not, a mail slot in the door actually weakens it, because it goes against the wood grain, and that makes it easier to kick in. Get a regular mailbox, or place the mail slot near the bottom of the front door. Thorny, dense shrubbery beneath ground-floor windows prevents this route from becoming an easy path for a burglar.

Blog | 15 August 2016

For awhile now, a basic security system that offers 24/7 monitoring and maybe window and door sensors, motion sensors and a fire alarm, has certainly been a good way to prevent break-ins. Today, however, homeowners have a variety of tech products available to them that can be integrated into their home security system to give them that extra level of protection. And most of the time these products can be deployed without adding any extra sensors, sirens or alarms. So, if you are thinking of beefing up your existing security system, all you have to do is act like a film director: “Lights, camera, action!” Lights! A well-lit or a suddenly bright area scares off criminals like lightening. When lights are integrated with a home security system, motion sensors can trigger...
