A secure home is a happy home!

“Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family; whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one.” – Jane Howard

Your family and loved ones are the foundation of your inner strength. They are the supporting pillar of your life and their safety is always your utmost priority. However, there are times when you cannot be physically present to take care of them. At such times, there is always a sense of fear for their security and well-being.

You may think that this fear is quite irrational, but the bold headlines, flashing news alerts and rising number of crime rates in India not only question your level of home security but also nudges you to strengthen it. Over the last decade, the crimes related to burglary, domestic thefts, etc has seen a sudden rise. Based on a study done by OSAC (Bureau of Diplomat Security) residential threat is a common security threat in India. Sometimes, it may also result in violence, injury or deaths in some rare cases.

While the officials and the government are doing their bit to reduce the numbers and enhance security in the country, you too need to take a step towards safeguarding your home. This is where a full-proof security system for your home comes into the picture. The common protection system for an Indian society is a security guard and a CCTV camera. You need to go one step ahead and take preventive measures to keep your home safe.

Here are some essential measures you can take that will safeguard your home and your loved ones.

  1. Invest in strong, solid doors

All your doors need to be solid and kick-proof. Go for hard wood that cannot be damaged or broken easily. Ensure all your doors have an interior lock reinforcement so that it cannot be car-jacked from the outside.

  1. Go for a deadbolt

It is believed that a door is only strong as its lock. Invest in a trustworthy brand and bring home a deadbolt to lock your doors perfectly.

  1. Double-check your frames

Ensure that there are not opening or blind spots in your window or door frames that can give easy access to a potential threat.

  1. Avoid French windows or sliding doors.

If your apartment is on a lower floor, sliding doors and windows are an open invitation to thieves and burglars. As they are easy to break and invade your home, it is highly advisable to not go for such doors and windows.

In addition to the above-mentioned measures, you need to make sure that you give your home an infallible security system that lets you live stress-free when you are outdoors.
