5 Tips for Easy DIY Home Window Security

Call Orange Home Security

 

Windows are probably the most vulnerable security point in your home. While you may only have two or three exterior doorways on your house with deadbolt locks and reinforced frames, you probably have many windows that most of the time may be left unlocked or even open. So what can you do to increase your home window security without imprisoning yourself or sacrificing comfort? Here are a few tips that may help:

Tip #1 – Window stickers

Window Security StickerA sticker can’t stop a burglar from entering your home but it may be just enough to make them think twice. Along with a yard sign, security stickers on your windows are an easy and affordable burglar deterrent. Place them in the lower corner right where someone from the outside will see them at eye level.

Tip #2 – Window film

Window Security FilmLaminated or tempered glass are probably the best option when choosing a window glass for home security but they can be expensive. A more affordable option without having to replace your windows is security window film. A do-it-yourself film that can be applied to your windows that will hold the glass together when broken. A thief may still be able to break through but the extra effort and noise may not be worth the risk!

Tip #3 – Window locks

Adjustable window lockIn addition to your standard window locks you can add adjustable locks that fit right into the window tracks. These locks can be used as an extra lock on the window or adjusted so you window can only be opened a few inches. Adjust them at a level wide enough to let fresh air in but low enough to keep thieves out!

Tip #4 – Window bars

Window security barI’m not talking about imprisoning yourself behind metal bars (although those are good for keeping people both in and out!) I’m talking about a single bar that can be wedged into the window frame to prevent the window from being opened. You can either measure and cut your own from a wooden dowel or you can purchase adjustable metal rods made specifically for this purpose. Bars work especially well on horizontally sliding windows and doors.

Tip #5 – Window alarms

Window alarmMost home security system will have window sensors that will sound an alarm when a window is opened. If a home security system is out of your budget or if you rent, an easy and affordable solution is small battery powered window alarms. These small devices stick to your window and frame and when a window is opened, the pieces separate activating a high-decibel alarm. Place them in a position so that they are not easily reached by a burglar who may have opened your window (not like this image!)

 

NOTE: Things that prevent burglars from getting into your home may also prevent you from getting out in an emergency! Be prepared, have a home emergency escape route planned!

Spare Key Treasure Hunt (just don’t make a map!)

Spare key treasure map

Under the welcome mat, above the door frame, inside a fake rock … we think we’re being clever when when it comes to hiding that spare house key but the reality is, if we’ve thought of it so have burglars!

In an ideal world we’d never forget our keys or lock ourselves out of the house (well, in an ideal world we wouldn’t need to lock out doors!) But If you’re like me it’s not a case of “if” I lock myself out but “when.” In that moment it’s great to know that the $35 ceramic garden gnome with a spare key holder was money well spent! Or was it?

When thieves prowl neighborhoods going house to house looking for an easy target, your garden gnome spare key holder just put your house at the top of the thieves easy target list! So what can you do to have your spare key and keep your house safe too?

Spare Key Treasure Hunt

Leave a key under the garden gnome, just not a key to your house! Leave a key to a locked shed, inside of which is another key to a locked toolbox or cabinet, inside of which you have hidden a spare key to your house. Even better is to make friends with a neighbor and leave the key to your house hidden in their shed! It’s a spare key treasure hunt that thieves would either not be able to figure out or not have the time to even try. Just don’t leave a map with an X marking the spot! 🙂

Make Friends with Your Neighbors

Another option to to leave a spare key with a neighbor or two. Make friends with neighbors you can trust and leave a spare key with them. You can also return the favor. An added benefit is that your neighbor can keep an eye on your house and access your house if needed while you’re away or on vacation.

Install a Keyless Entry System

Upgrade your home locks and security with a keyless entry system. There are affordable high security locks that can be easily installed that will allow access through either a keypad, fingerprint, or a phone app, some of which will even unlock your house as you walk up to the door without even taking the smartphone out of your pocket!

The importance of having a safe in Phoenix

Protecting your valuables and vital records from fire or theft is serious business. A basic locking cabinet can secure valuable papers or personal items but it will not protect them from theft or fire damage. Only safes can provide a superior level of protection for documents, jewelry, guns and personal items.
Home and business security systems require the addition of security safes to eliminate the possibility of data and document loss due to fire. The proliferation of home robberies are classified as “snatch and grab.” The intruder invests approximately 3-5 minutes within the home. The very presence of a home security safe is a deterrent to such robberies.
24/7 pro locksmith specializes in a large inventory of wall safes, fire safes, gun safes, and electronic digital safes. Home safes are a perfect compliment to any home security system. Fire could destroy your business! In fact, eight businesses burn almost every hour in the U.S. resulting in over 2.3 billion dollars in annual losses. Unfortunately, seven out of ten businesses have not adequately protected their vital records.
When that information is destroyed a business often fails. Don’t become a company that incurs fire damage resulting in critical loss of data (customer, personnel, accounting files, etc.) by not utilizing quality fire and data media safes. Survival is possible but preparation is necessary.
