It is believed that at least 40% of most home break-ins occur through unlocked windows and most often take place in the warmer months of the springs and summer when windows are most likely to be left open. Here are some tips on how you can make your windows safer against break-ins;
Use Stronger and More Durable Window Locks
This is the most essential step you must take. You need to ensure that the locks are functioning effectively by making an attempt to force the windows open. You need to ensure that windows, including basement windows decorative and upstairs windows, are well-secured with durable locks even when they are not in use. Please contact us at GreenPro Locksmith for the installation of certified, and durable window locks.
Practice Security Steps with Outdoor Windows
Windows located in dark and secluded areas must be locked at all times. These outdoor windows are the primary focus of burglars; hence you must ensure that great quality exterior lighting is installed close to them. Make sure security cameras are mounted close to the street-accessible windows, and that will allow you to view any suspicious activities of burglars. Please contact us at GreenPro Locksmith to inspect external windows and install security lighting plus surveillance cameras near them.
Use Window Concealments
Make sure necessary window concealments such as window blinds, curtains, and coverings of high quality, are installed You should consider the solid-toned fabrics and avoid the transparent or opaque fabrics that can be peered through. Window concealments will make your home obscured from the outside.
Keep Your Valuables Away from the Windows
You need to ensure that all expensive items, including electronics, jewelry, artworks, and machinery, are kept far from the windows. These expensive items must be placed in an area that cannot be viewed from the windows. Putting these expensive items near the window means you are advertising them for potential burglars to see. You can contact us at GreenPro Locksmith if you need some durable safes and cabinets, to keep some of your essential valuables.
Install Window Motion Detection or Glass Break Sensors
The installation of a motion detection device near your window is an amazing security option. It helps you get notified when there is motion near your window. It also sends a notification when your windows are moved, opened or even broken. At GreenPro Locksmith, we also recommend the installation of glass break sensors especially on the windows located on the first floor of your home or office. The windows on the first floor are usually some of the first targeted windows by burglars. The glass break sensors will sound a huge alarm and authorities can be notified easily when they go off. Both window motion detector and glass break sensors can actually scare away potential burglars from access your home or office through the windows.
