Door Restrictors

Before purchasing any security products to protect the front or back door of your house, check the quality of your door. Make sure it isn’t damaged or weak in any area. Once you find that your doors are in good condition, give them an extra layer of security with door restrictors. The Secure Ring chain is a simple steel chain and loop that attaches to your door handle for security.

Change or Upgrade your locks

If you have lost a set of keys or if you let someone borrow a set of keys and never got them back, it may be time to change your locks. You may also notice that your door locks have become damaged over time which can leave your home vulnerable. No need to worry though as your local locksmith can change your locks and cut you a new set of keys in no time. This will give you confidence in your home security as well as control over who can access your home.

Security Lights

Security Lights are one of the most practical and effective ways to prevent crime around your home, garage and also your business. Security lighting is a deterrent as it exposes the burglar. A burglar always looks for places with little or no lighting.

The NightWatcher has a patent pending motion tracking feature built into a PIR lamp. The NightWatcher detects an intruder’s motion within the field of vision of the PIR. It then points the lamp directly at the intruder. As the intruder moves across the PIR field of vision, the motorized NightWatcher lamp head also takes aim and follows.

Double Check Entry Points Regularly

It is important to check the quality of your doors, windows and domestic security products every now and then. Although, it is easy to keep your home safe by double checking doors and windows every day. Double check that all windows are shut and all doors are locked before you go to bed at night. Also, double check that windows are closed, doors are locked and your alarm is set every time you leave the house. If you are leaving the house for a a long duration of time then also make sure to switch on any security lights and make it look like someone is at home. This is an easy way to keep away burglars.
