How to improve the security of your home

November 29, 2022

I'm sure you've heard this before, but it bears repeating: your home is your most valuable asset. And with the prices of homes skyrocketing these days, it's never been more important to ensure your house is locked down tight. That's why we're here to help with some simple tips on how to keep your home safe from break-ins and burglaries!

Get a dog.

A dog is a great way to improve your home security. Dogs can be trained to help protect your property, alert you to intruders, and scare away the intruder if they come into your home. If you have a watchdog, then all the better. You may even consider training it to be a guard dog in case of an emergency where someone tries breaking into your house or yard. According to the protection dogs and training specialists of Total K9 ® it's equally important to invest in training your dog to become a guard dog or to buy a trained protection dog.

If you don’t want a full-time commitment with a furry friend but still want something for protection, consider getting some motion sensor lights around your home that will turn on when someone gets close enough.

Install an alarm system

An alarm system is one of the best ways to protect your home. There are many different types of alarm systems, and they can be installed by you or a professional. Most systems have a central station that monitors the system and alerts authorities if an alarm is triggered. Some systems are monitored by law enforcement, while others are only monitored by the central station. Some homeowners choose to install both types of monitoring because then they know that their home will get immediate attention in case of a break-in or theft.

You can also include various features with your system, such as smoke detectors or glass break sensors (which sound an alarm when someone breaks through your windows). If you're going for full coverage, consider installing motion detectors in areas where an intruder could hide undetected before entering your property (behind bushes near entrances or behind doors).

Install lighting

Next, you want to improve your home's security by installing lighting. One of the biggest deterrents for criminals is having well-lit areas outside the house. Make sure that the perimeter of your home is well-lit, and install lights in front and back doors, garage doors, and driveways as well. You should also install lights on side walls so that you can easily see what's happening at night in dark areas like a backyard or driveway. Finally, it's important to light up any bushes or shrubs around your house because they can provide cover for intruders trying to break into your property when no one is watching them from inside their homes.

Invest in a CCTV system

A CCTV system is a great way to protect your home. It can help you see what is happening inside and outside of your home, as well as monitor who is coming and going.

The system consists of cameras that are installed in strategic locations around the house, such as at entrances and exits, garages, front doors, back doors, and windows. The images from these cameras are then transmitted to another device (such as a monitor), where they can be viewed remotely by those who have access to this system.

The system also allows you to communicate with people who are at your front door or in other areas where the cameras are located. This is helpful for situations when guests arrive, but you’re unable to get home in time or if there is an emergency and you need immediate assistance.

Get a safe for your valuables

The first step in securing your valuables is to get a good safe. You don't want to just put all of your valuables in a box under the bed or even in another room. Getting a safe will help protect them from fire, water damage, and burglary attempts. You can also consider building a vault inside your cold room to safeguard your valuables and use the Residential Vault Door by INKAS Safes.

When choosing a safe for your home, think about what you will be storing in it and how much protection is needed for each item. Fireproof safes are great for items like paper documents and photographs as they are more likely to be damaged by heat than they are by water or theft. If you have important documents such as passports or birth certificates that need extra protection, then this type of safe should be considered.

Keep a weapon handy if possible

If you're able to have a weapon handy, do it. You can use the weapon to protect yourself, your family, or even your property. The most important thing to remember when deciding whether or not to arm yourself is that if you decide to own a revolver gun and use it for defensive purposes, ensure you're properly trained on how to use it safely and responsibly.


In this article, we've covered some of the most important steps you can take to ensure that your home is a safe and secure place to live. From installing an alarm system to keeping a weapon handy, you can do many simple things without much money or time investment. With these tips in mind, you'll be able to sleep easier knowing that your home is protected from intruders and burglars alike.
